|Canon SD800 IS Digital ELPH raises the bar. There's everything you'd expect from a camera of this caliber: A 7.1 megapixel CCD to render images in magnificent detail and a DIGIC III Image Processor for stellar quality and fast operation. Yet what sets the SD800 IS Digital ELPH apart is its Wide-angle 3.8x optical zoom with Image Stabilizer technology for rock steady zooms. The Canon SD800 IS Digital ELPH is the Digital ELPH that's a step ahead.|

Good focal range for lens; quick performance; optical image stabilization; attractive design.
Few manual controls; extremely noisy photos at ISO 1,600.
A slim, stylish body, a wide-angle lens, very good photo quality, and snappy performance make the Canon PowerShot SD800 IS a great point-and-shoot.

This is a great little pocket sized camera with a small screen and a viewfinder. My newer Canon PowerShot A4000 is larger, with cheaper components than the older Elph SD800 IS. The Elph SD800 has been a fantastic camera and takes great photos.
Although the megapixels and zoom are smaller than most newer cameras, I still find this camera takes great photos. Also, the battery life is phenomenal! I took this camera to Europe and didn't have to charge it once!
I love having the viewfinder. You can see the zoom through the viewfinder. This is a great asset, as most newer cameras have eliminated viewfinders in favor of larger screens. I broke the screen on my Elph SD500, and the viewfinder was a life saver!
Definitely recommend this camera as a great value. Sturdy, quality parts, compact, and takes great pics! Overall awesome, just without all the bells & whistles of the newer cameras.
My new A series SD4000 by canon has the higher resolution, but is larger, with a cheap battery charger and the charge doesn't last long on the new camera. The ELPH series is a higher end camera.
i bought this as a replacement for another sd800 that i lost. it in turn was a replacement for the original one i bought about 4 years ago. obviously i like this camera. sure, recent point-and-shoot cameras have way more megapixels and features but this one is adequate for my purposes. 7.1 MP may not seem like a lot these days, but unless you're shooting photos for National Geographic, that's enough resolution. it's fairly light and compact which is good for backpacking and hiking. and not many point-and-shoots offer wide-angle like this one. this camera was in very good condition, almost like new.
This was my first digital camera, and I purchased a second SD800 as a back-up. I love the wide-angle lens and distortion appears minimal in the landscape shots.
While processing photos for sale listings, I did find that boxy or square items would show some distortion. If you use Adobe Photoshop, distortion is easily removed using Filter > Distort > Lens Correction.
Photo quality is excellent and there's a macro setting which yields good detail for close-ups. I'm happy with the video quality as well. IS (image stabilization) eliminates any shakiness.
The settings I normally use were pretty easy to learn and there are some functions I still haven't tried. The only thing I miss is getting the instant action shots, as there is shutter lag typical of point-and-shoots. Until a compact, lightweight SLR is available and affordable, this camera has all I need.
My initial purchase was based on photographer Ken Rockwell's 2006 review. If you are looking for a new or used digital camera, he has covered other models as well. Read his Canon SD800 review here: http://www.kenrockwell.com/canon/sd800.htm
I have always liked this Canon model. I purchased one new in 2007 and decided to get another on Ebay in 2011. 7.1 mp is all I need to take a quality picture with a point and shoot camera. My only dislike is the location of the flash. You need to be careful where you put your finger when shooting.
I bought this camera for my husband. He lost his other camera--same model. He'd bought a new Cannon to replace the lost one and didn't like the lack of a viewfinder. Fortunately we found the older model available on eBay. It takes very good pictures, is compact and easy to use. He loves it.
Many of the new cameras lack a viewfinder. We both like having that feature although I mostly use my Cannon digital SLR for photography. The PowerShot is much easier to carry, fits easily in a handbag or clipped waist. I'm borrowing it to take to California next week. Leaving my SLR home as I don't want to have to stow it on the plane.
