Premium Camera Group Test (Q4 2008) Holidays '08 Compact Camera Group Test Group 3: Premium cameras

 

For the third of our group tests we've picked what are best termed 'premium' compact cameras. Since this is a rather vague description let me explain the criteria we used to select the six cameras in this group - starting with what they're not....

Perhaps the most obvious thing to come out of this group is that the relationship between image quality and pixel count - and price - is far from simple. The truth is that once you get over about 8 megapixels the gains - if any - to be had by adding...

Canon PowerShot SD880 IS review:

 

At the time of this review, the Canon PowerShot Digital Elph line featured no fewer than 10 models--not even including lingering older models--so deciphering what makes one better or different than another gets tricky ( here's our succinct breakdown )....

Excellent photo quality for its class; optical image stabilization; pleasing interface and design; wide-angle lens.

Mode dial spins a bit too freely; button positioning might bother some users; very noticeable fringing.

Simply put, the Canon PowerShot SD880 IS is an excellent point-and-shoot camera.

Canon Digital IXUS 870 IS Review

 

The Canon Digital IXUS 870 IS (known as the PowerShot SD880 IS Digital ELPH in North America) is a new addition to Canon's popular line of stylish, metal ultra-compact digital cameras. The Canon 870 IS has a 10 megapixel sensor, stabilised 28-112mm...

In short, I can happily recommend the Canon Digital IXUS 870 IS to anyone who is looking for a small, carry-anywhere camera that feels responsive in use and produces more than acceptable image quality, at least at lower sensitivity settings and as long...

Canon PowerShot SD880 IS Digital ELPH Digital Camera - First Shots - The Imaging Resource!

 

Canon's PowerShot SD880 IS digital camera replaces the company's previous PowerShot SD870 IS model, and updates the chassis with an edgier style. The Canon SD880 also reduces the body height and thickness ever so slightly. Under that pretty skin, the...

Full-frame sensor gives 1:1 crop factor, true wide angle with 35mm lenses, Very compact and relatively lightweight for a full-frame d-SLR, Dramatically less expensive than the only other full-frame d-SLR currently on the market, Canon's own 1Ds Mark...

Full-frame, high resolution sensor is very demanding of lenses, even high-end lenses can have trouble in the corners (Plan on spending serious $$ on lenses to keep up with this body!), Color is generally good, but reds are significantly oversaturated,...

The standard ISO sensitivity range offered by the Canon SD880 IS is unchanged from the SD870, with a minimum of ISO 100 through to a maximum of ISO 1,600. A new high sensitivity scene mode allows this to be boosted to a maximum of ISO 3,200, however....

Canon PowerShot SD880 IS Digital ELPH Review

Good photo quality ; Stylish, compact metal body; comes in silver and gold ; 4X, wide-angle lens ; Optical image stabilization ; Fast startup time; snappy performance overall ; Nice 3-inch LCD display; great outdoor and low light visibility ; Face...

More noise reduction than older Powershots, especially in low light (though this won't affect most people) ; Images are soft around the edges ; Flash recharging could be faster ; Current zoom setting not shown on LCD ; No optical viewfinder ; More...

If I was ignoring Sony cameras, the PowerShot SD880 would have the best battery life in its class. Unfortunately for the SD880, I'm not, so it will have to take second place instead. In the group as a whole, the SD880's numbers are above average

With the introduction of the Canon PowerShot SD880 IS as successor to the SD870 IS, Canon embarks on the implementation of its newest DIGIC IV processor technology into an SD product line that also includes the DIGIC IV equipped SD990 IS at present.

Good shutter lag and AF performance, Good color rendition, Excellent lens performance
