    Canon SD850 IS Review

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    For the past 10 years, the design of Canon's SD line has not changed very much. Why change a good thing? Of course, there have been updates and new features added to new models, but the basic concept of the SD line has remained the same. The Canon SD850 IS follows this same trend. It is the follow-up to the Canon SD700 IS, which was a largely successful and great performing compact digital camera.

    The SD850 was released in early 2007, and it has been a successful camera for Canon right from the start. It is similar to the SD700 with a few changes. One of the changes was the upgrade of the image sensor to 8.3 megapixels from 6.2 megapixels in the previous model. The other main difference in the SD850 is the Digic III processor, which is a great performer; according to Canon, it speeds up processing times, image quality, and even battery life.

    It's a tall order to try to improve on the Canon SD700, but Canon has done it with the SD850. It seems that they have addressed all of the concerns associated with the SD850's predecessor and managed to create an almost perfect point-and-shoot digital camera.

    Some may argue that the $399 price tag is a bit much, but the SD850 is worth every penny in my opinion. It may be more expensive than some of its competitors, but with Canon you know you are going to get a great quality camera that will pass the test of time and perform at a higher level than most of the competition.

    If the price tag is just too high for your digital camera budget, you may want to check out the SD750 or the SD800, both by Canon. They are $150 and $75 cheaper than the SD850 respectively. Both of these alternatives are of the same excellent quality as the SD850, with fewer features and slightly lower image quality and performance.
