Canon PowerShot SD800 IS or IXUS 850 IS Digital Camera Review

Canon PowerShot SD800 IS (in Europe called IXUS 850 IS) is an ELPH line design, slim, stylish curved, with large controls but overall well fitting in hand and pocket. Optical Image Stabilizer Technology and DIGIC III Processor with Face Detection AF/AE are the most attractive features of this digital camera. Solid color reproduction, low noise (except high ISO), sharpness and little chromatic aberrations conclude with excellent image quality from a great point-and-shoot camera. But, again, to few manual controls for my taste.
Accessories: Canon SELPHY Compact Photo Printers and PIXMA Printers supporting PictBridge, Optional High Power Flash HF-DC1and Optional Waterproof Case (WP-DC9).

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
