I purchased the Canon SD770IS to substitute a PowerShot A95. Few years ago, I bought a Digital Elph for my daughter and found myself using that smal and light camera, instead of my A95. Given advancements in technology, it was time to upgrade.

The most crucial feature in searching for a substitute was small size and the use of a rechargeable battery. Resolution was less a factor as the A95, with just five Mpixels, created clear pictures. The most noticeable improvement, even over the previous Elph, was in the increased speed of all functions including boot up and image recording.

Picture quality is stellar and the color proportion and metering is superior. If you now own a Canon digital camera and are upgrading, the standard navigation of characteristics stays mainly the identical, so that will be common to you. Approach to the camera’s shooting styles use menus rather than a physical dial as on the A95.

The screen is pretty large, well illuminated and easy to see, even in bright light. Finally, the most essential condition with digital photography should be picture quality and easiness of use. I have years of experience with non-automatic SLR film cameras and similar point and shoots, and this model fits perfectly for true “turn it on and shoot” photography. Images are crisp and vivid with solid detail and vibrant color.

The luminosity meter performs well in assessing the settings and choosing the best possible combination of shutter speed and aperture.

A high capacity (SDHC) memory card will hold a insane number of photos even at the highest resolution. Uploading photos to a PC or Mac is smooth with either the supplied software or Apple’s iPhoto package, which works seamlessly with the camera. I would recommend both a high capacity SD card and the optional leather case to protect the camera, particularly if dropped.

Canon SD770IS just blows me away. It takes astonishing photographs in full-auto mode. In situations where full-auto doesn’t quite do the job as well as possible, this camera permits you change of ISO settings, white balance, focus method, and lots of other factors.

I extremely recommend Canon SD770IS camera for someone searching for an easy-to-use, lightweight, little and good digital camera. It’s simply a superb camera at a good price.
