From panoramas to parties.

7.1 Megapixels
A 7.1 Megapixel CCD sensor captures every scene with enough fine detail for large photo quality prints.

Wide-angle lens with optical IS
A 28mm (equivalent) wide-angle lens with 3.8x zoom takes in more of every scene. Canon's optical Image Stabilizer (IS) technology counteracts camera shake for steady shots at slower shutter speeds and full zoom.

IXUS Styling
Sleek, smart and elegant, the Digital IXUS 850 IS is finished in an all-metal body with the rounded contours of the IXUS 'Perpetual Curve' design.

DIGIC III Processor
Canon's best of breed DIGIC III processor provides lightning quick responses, superb image quality and advanced noise reduction for sharper, clearer images. iSAPS technology analyses each scene to optimise key camera settings even before a shot is taken.

Face Detection AF/AE
Face Detection AF/AE ensures superb people shots by automatically detecting the subjects in the frame and setting the optimum focus and exposure. My Category tags each image based on face detection and shooting mode for easy image navigation, printing, deleting and much more.

Large LCD
The high resolution 2.5" LCD screen features a wide viewing angle for easy group viewing. The Image Inspection Tool enables instant checks for image sharpness.

Shooting modes
Choose from 17 shooting modes including Special Scene modes to help with tricky lighting conditions, such as Night Snapshot and Snow. Shoot smooth VGA (30fps) and QVGA (60fps) video with Movie mode.

My Colors
Apply special in-camera colour effects both during and after shooting. Lighten skin tones in portraits, or add extra vibrancy to blue skies for stunning, punchy landscapes.

Flash-free low light shooting
A low-noise ISO 1600 setting combines with optical IS to enable flash-free shooting indoors and at night. High ISO Auto mode automatically sets an optimal high ISO setting to allow for faster shutter speeds, further reducing the effects of camera shake.

Safety Zoom
Safety Zoom takes advantage of the camera's large resolution to offer extra zoom magnification without affecting image quality. Capture images at up to 7.3x zoom with enough detail for lab-quality postcard (10 x 15cm) prints. Capture VGA quality stills for TV playback at 15x zoom.

Direct Printing
Connect to any PictBridge compatible photo printer and push the Print/Share button for instant photolab quality prints.

As I mentioned in my review of the PowerShot A710 IS last week, Canon launch a lot of new models every year, but even so I was astonished to learn that since it's inception in June 2000 there have been no fewer than 27 different cameras in the Canon Digit...
This is one ultra-compact digital camera which we honestly did not see coming. Although it was announced by Canon with two other SD-series models, it distinguishes itself as one of only two wide-angle ultra-compact digital cameras. The other one is th...
The SD800 IS (IXUS 850 IS), announced just before Photokina 2006 back in September, is a sister model to the popular SD 700 IS (IXUS 800 IS), one of the better ultra compact models launched last year. As well as an extra million pixels or so, the new...

Bad AiAF focus a bit unpredictable - turn it off, Very little manual control, ISO 200 and 400 suffer from the effect of noise reduction and loss of low contrast detail, ISO 800 and 1600 of limited use, Finish very susceptible to marks and scratches, Still no...
Bottom line The SD 700 IS was perhaps my favorite point and shoot camera of last year, ticking all the right boxes (small, stylish, reliable, good output, easy to use) and showing that, for all the grumbling about Canons dominance of this market, when they get t...
The Canon SD800 is the pocket camera to get. Id have bought it the instant it was announced, except that I had bought the similar SD700 two months before the SD800 was announced. In other parts of the world, the SD800 is called the DIGITAL IXUS 850...

After two weeks and more than 1000 pictures, we have to say that the Canon SD800 is a very compelling camera that should be seriously considered if you are looking for a quality compact. Several handy functions add greatly to its versatility. The fact...
After shooting with my Rebel XT exclusively for almost a year, I decided that having a point and shoot again would be a good idea as I was trashing my Rebel by carrying it around everyday. After a few recommendations (not the least of which was Jasons...
The Canon PowerShot SD800 IS Digital ELPH ($399) is an upgrade to the popular SD700 IS, which was only seven months old when it was replaced. While the SD900 is the flagship of the ELPH lineup, the SD800 is arguably more interesting than that cam...
A great camera to help you get better at taking photos. The suffix at the end of the model number of the SD800 IS from Canon stands for "image stabilization." Those two words are becoming a key part of this years marketing push from all the compact c...
The 10.0 megapixel PowerShot SD900 and the 7.1 megapixel PowerShot SD800 IS Digital ELPHs take the marriage of style and substance to a new level, by offering an array of user-friendly features along with faster response time and a new face detection a...
