Canon IXUS 800 IS / Powershot SD700 IS Review - DPExpert

The Canon Ixus 800IS is a 6 megapixel camera with a 4x (35–140mm film equivalent) image stabilised zoom lens.

Canon make much of the argument that it is not the number of pixels that matters so much as the quality of image extracted from them and the Ixus800 is a good demonstration of the theory. 6 million pixels are enough to make A4 prints without much enlargement and prints up to A3+ with moderate enlargement. And fewer pixels per square mm of sensor usually means better control of noise in high ISO pictures.

Canon IXUS 800 IS / Powershot SD700 IS Review - Digital Camera Review

The current flagship of the Canon SD line is the Canon IXUS 800 IS / Powershot SD700 IS. It’s their smallest camera to include the Canon Image Stabilization system — a welcome addition to those people looking for better image quality and versatility in their sub-compact cameras.

The Canon IXUS 800 IS / Powershot SD700 captures images a 6 megapixels with a 1/2.5 inch CCD. A 2.5 inch LCD with 173K pixels of resolution allows easy framing and review. If you don’t want to use the LCD, the Canon IXUS 800 IS / Powershot SD700 does include an increasingly rare optical viewfinder.

It has excellent image quality, good battery life, and very fast operation. While it doesn’t have any true manual modes, the person that buys this camera typically isn’t looking for them. The included feature set, including the fun My Colors feature, is fun to use. While the camera is not cheap, it is worth it if it’s in your budget.

Canon IXUS 800 IS/ Powershot SD700 IS Review - Megapixel

The image quality of the Canon IXUS 800 IS / PowerShot SD700 IS is nothing short of excellent.

Three levels of JPEG compression are available to record images, and the level that applies the least compression, and therefore guarantees the highest image quality, is the Superfine setting. Set to this compression level, the IXUS 800 IS / SD700 IS yields images that show no loss of detail, and subtle colours can be detected in both sky and foliage. Moreover, the Fine image quality, a compression level that yields file sizes that are half of those in the Superfine mode, offers an image quality that is often hard to differentiate from the Superfine level.

Canon IXUS 800 IS Review - Lets Go Digital

To sum things up, we have nothing but praise for the top model from the Digital IXUS series: the Canon IXUS 800 IS.

The camera features a user-friendly operation, and produces first-rate image quality. It is not a camera for the photographer with high demands looking for something compact, whilst also wanting to make choices in aperture and shutter speeds, but then again, the Canon IXUS 800 IS does not claim to be this type of camera in the first place. It is an attractive design camera, attaching particular value to quality and ease. And once you have worked with an optical image stabilizer and have experienced the advantages of care-free photography in every imaginable situation, you are not likely to return to a camera that is not equipped with an image stabilization system.

We can conclude the Canon Digital IXUS 800 IS is a champion among compact cameras, a camera that truly deserves to be a style icon! An outstanding performance!

The Canon Powershot SD700 IS - another outstanding member of Canon’s Digital ELPH series, offering great image quality, robust performance, and useful exposure modes, all packed in an ultra-compact, durable and stylish shell.

It’s sure to make an excellent choice for any user in the market for an extremely pocketable 4x zoom, high resolution digicam. It is more expensive than Canon Powershot SD630, but its combination of 4x optical zoom lens and Image Stabilization will be worth the extra cost to those who need those features.
