My New Canon: Powershot SD870 IS
April 9, 2008
I purchased a new camera and it finally arrived today. Very excited! The Canon Powershot SD 870 IS is a point shoot camera small enough to fit in a coat pocket, but large enough to not feel like a Fischer Price toy. The camera is solid and well designed. The real selling point for me was the large display. The 870 has a 3″ view screen and is exceptionally bright in all light conditions. I elected to save myself $130 and go with the 870 instead of the newer 890 as I wanted the bigger screen. The 870 is a 8 megapixel camera. The 890 is 10 megapixel. But I am not planning to develop any posterboard prints. For the amateur photographer i.e. Family Man, the SD 870 is perfect!
