TOTAL USER RATINGS: 5
PROS: Sturdy construction (quite heavy). Excellent quality pics. Pocket size and handy. Image stabilizer. Movie function (though not 1080p). Above average shutter speed.
CONS: A bit expensive. Plastic holder of battery broke after it got bumped to my car's door (but I bought the warranty :=))
PROS: Excellent pictures and and the large LCD screen is crystal clear. load up time is significantly faster than the popular Sony cameras. It's a point and shoot, not load and wait then shoot. The cannon was fast in starting up and was able to point and shoot a picture within 2 seconds. A lot of useful features and some not so useful like the color replacements and enhancements but that might be good for the creative shooter. I normally shoot with a digital SLR and picked this one up for my wife. Actually, I have been using this camera because it was fast and easy while quickly producing excellent results! The printer I am using is the new Epson DASH printer because it produces excellent results and can easily print right formt eh camera using PictBridge.
CONS: Easy to get fingers in the way of the flash and the zoom button may take some while to get used to due to location. Produces a quite a bit of Red-Eye so be forewarned. I was surprised the flash is not a TTL (through the lens) as the flash can saturate pictures especially indoor shots. Would have been nice if the flash could have rotated upward to the ceiling.
PROS: Very good quality of pictures. Comparable to higher prices Sony cams such as T100, but with better zoom. Strong metal case protects in case of a fall. Although there aren't tons of menus and options since it is a point and shoot cam, there is everything am amateur or someone who doesn't need to bother with all of the options. You get cool effects which can really make the look of a picture cool. The 8 mg pxl probably helps a lot since the picture quality looks better than on the Powershot 750 and other similar models. Price drop makes this an excellent buy.
CONS: Was $400 when I got it. Now there's no reason not to get it.
PROS: I started with purchasing the 12MP by Kodak and found it too difficult (I'm a novice at all the extra stuff). Then a little plastic thingy fell off so I returned it and did some research. Found this site and was sold on the Canon 850 IS but was also considering the 900. Love it, I am getting 19 of 20 good pictures. Not disappointed in 8MP vs the 12MP. I did see a slight improvement in the 12MP but I was only getting 1 of 10 shots working for me.
CONS: What's missing. I really like to manually zoom in and out. Maybe I am overlooking something but only thing I find is you have to go into the menu each time and pick from 1 of three setings. I liked my old Kodak DX6340 that you had the button on outside and you zoomed in and out with ease. Anyone know a better way on this 850 IS would appreciate the feedback. I've only had the camera 24 hours....
PROS: I have brought this camera a few days ago, have been playing with it for many hours and have test most of it's features. To sum up my experience, I am impressed by the amazingly rich set of easy to use features, in particularly its manual option where you can choose the shatter speed, ISO level, color level etc... It is quality builted with a very solid look and feel. But the most important aspect is it has very excellent image quality with sharp details and accurate colors,The video quality is crisp and smooth for a still camera standard. Either if you an ametuer or an ethueistest, you will find something in it to keep you interested.
