Canon PowerShot SD770 IS (black)
3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Oct 7, 2008

THE GOOD: Very nice photos for the price; compact and attractive; optical image stabilization. THE BAD: Some aspects of performance too slow. THE BOTTOM LINE: A solid ultracompact, the SD770 IS nevertheless faces stiff competition from its closely priced line mates, the cheaper SD1100 IS and the better SD790 IS.

Canon Powershot SD770 IS
3.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Oct 28, 2008

The Canon Powershot SD770 IS is modelled after the ELPH design and is meant to provide high-quality performance with a compact body and size. It features a 10 megapixel CCD and a 3x optical image-stabilized zoom along with Face Detection, Red Eye Detection and Motion Detection technology for reducing blur and capturing accurate colour. The Powershot SD770 IS is also equipped with a 2.5-inch PureColour LCD II screen and can export images to a variety of standard external memory cards. Features: Compact design (modelled after Canon ELPH Series) 10 megapixel CCD 3x optical image-stabilized zoom Face Detection, Red Eye Detection and Motion Detection technology 2.5-inch PureColour LCD II screen Compatible with SD/SDHC and MMC/MMC Plus/HC MMC Plus memory cards ... PROS: (1) Excellent form factor. Nice size, pocketable, big shutter button, nice metallic finish. Like a deck of cards (2) Very fast startup time and time between shots because of DIGIC III (3) Simple to use. Minimalist design and UI (4) Great price. Price drop since newer ones are out that arent really better (5) Hookup directly to computer via USB cable (no cradle) ... CONS: (1) MJPEG video compression instead of better MPEG4 that cameras are moving to (2) Picture quality doesnt look good when hooked up to TV via RCA cable (3) Sound quality isnt the best in video mode (4) No HD video recording or even widescreen 16:9 video format (5) Smaller 2.5 LCD screen. Other models have 3."

Best choice for a quality, ultra-compact digital camera.
5 Star Review   By member sri123 - Aug 23, 2008   

Strengths: Ultra-compact size, image stabilization, 10 megapixels, Canon quality, uses SD and SDHC cards

Weakness: Nothing to report

Like most people, I did lot of research (online and visits to retailers) before deciding on the Canon SD770is. If you're considering a quality, compact digital camera, there simply is no better choice than the Canon SD770is - and go with the black color which features a black circle in front, a slightly darker body color, and a black wrist strap instead of the silver strap that comes with the silver version. I considered the SD790is with the 3" screen, but it's slightly bigger and heavier and only came in silver. The 770 is the successor to the 750 (one of Canon's best digital cameras), and adds image stabilization, a better LCD screen, 10 megapixels, and better and longer battery pack. I won't go into all the specs, because you can read that anywhere online, but the diminutive size makes the 770 very convenient to carry everywhere and the pictures are absolutely great. What more could you ask for? Recently made some 8x10 size pics from the 770 and the pictures are excellent : crisp, clean, and clear. I admit I am biased towards Canon as every year or two I upgrade to another Canon, but they simply make the best digital cameras on the market. Save some time, take advantage of my extensive research, and get yourself the Canon SD770is...and click away.

impressing camera with affordable price
4 Star Review   By member mapledudu - Jul 15, 2008   

Strengths: Very compact, good shape, 10MP and affordable price. Video recording is much better than my previous camera. Menu is very user friendly and very well put together

Weakness: The quality of the pictures are not significant improved compare to my previous camera

I have a Sony 330K camera for 5 years. This camera is much compact, good shape and has good quality of pictures and very good video quality as a digital camera. Like other digital cameras, the quality of pictures are OK but not very good. The menu is very friendly and the use is pretty simple. Overall, I recommend this camera.

Impressive performance & feature-set from an ultra-compact point-and-shoot
5 Star Review   By member TakaSaurus - Jul 11, 2008   

Strengths: Image quality is on par with more expensive (and larger) cameras. Vivid & beatiful LCD. Great value for its feature-set & capabilities.

Weakness: None... (yet?).

I was pretty impressed by the SD870IS that I bought for myself so I got the SD770IS for my wife as a gift. Although the SD770IS's lens isn't as wide as and doesn't have as high of a zoom as the SD870IS, it made up for it since it was more compact and sports a higher pixel count -- I can't forget to mention the lower price tag. As far as I can tell the image quality is also on par which is all the more impressive considering how small the camera is. There's other cameras out there that are smaller or cheaper, but they probably won't be able to match the image quality or feature-set found on the SD770IS. I'd say this is another winner from Canon.

The Best I've Ever Owned
5 Star Review   By Danny on Buydig.com - Jun 6, 2008   

Strengths: The best small compact camera I've ever had. Pic. are beautifully crisp and clear. Menu is very user friendly and very well put together. Have taken pics in all dif. settings with perfect results

Weakness: As with all, after zooming in pics get very dark due to flash.

I love taking Pic with this Camera. I really wanted the all silver, but after purchasing have grown to love the black inlay more. All the talk as far as the optical viewfinder being missing... Didn't even phase me since it's BEAUTIFUL Crisp 3.0" LCD screen. I would have liked some manual exposure controls, but over all EXCELLENT camera. Took it to a mets game as was very impressed with it's zoom and the great shot I was able to take of the players. The menu and some advanced features are very easy to set and use, and love the touch sensitivity as well. Bottom line, Buy the Camera, you wont be disappointed!!!

Performance at this size deserves more credit and attention!!!
5 Star Review   By member davelin - May 29, 2008   

Strengths: Smallest full-featured Canon Powershot in 2008 vintage; black color scheme looks better than depicted in photos; menus are very easy to navigate; some advanced settings

Weakness: Flash is not sufficiently strong (uneven contrast in a well-lit 15x15 room)

The 2008 vintage of Canon Powershot cameras is the must-have gold standard in digital point-and-shoots. The SD890 (highest MSRP) offers a 5x zoom, 2.5" LCD and curvy lines; the SD790 has the biggest LCD screen at 3.0", and the SD770 (lowest MSRP) is the smallest of the three. All of the 2008 cameras carry forward Canon's legacy of photographic excellence and ads several new, significant features that were previously only available on larger and more expensive digital SLRs. What Canon did was combine Optical Image Stabilization, Motion Detection technology, Hi-ISO Auto and Noise Reduction technology to create an intelligent anti-blur system. This enhancement is significant, as blurred photos continue to plague snapshots even after red eye, contrast issues and other problems went extinct. The SD770 packs all the same technology and capabilities of the SD790 (except the 3.0" LCD) and the SD890 (except the 5x optical zoom; SD770 has a 3x zoom) into the most compact frame of this class. The measurements appear to be only a few tenths of an inch shorter, narrower and slimmer, but the real-life difference is significant, especially when you're trying to squeeze a camera in your shirt or back pocket. Lastly and for what its worth... The black model is consistently priced 10-25% lower than the silver model. Based on the photos of the black model vs the silver, I could understand why the silver model was more visually appealing, but after seeing it, I actually grew to really like it! The black inlays look more like piano wood and break up the monotony of the silver.
