    My old SD550 did this when I was photographing the interior of a dark house. Worried the hell out of me (as it should). I think it might be caused by too many back-to-back flash pictures. Those...

    Looks like the Sony WX1 fits nicely between the SD980 and S90. It has HD video with zoom, a wider zoom range than either (24-120), and a smaller, but higher-sensitivity "backlit" sensor, not to...

    SD940: What's the difference between that and the SD960? Just the interface?

    No kidding? Everything? On Canon's website, they show an underwater housing accessory for the 940 but not the 980. If you could control everything, it seems like they'd have a housing for the 980,...

    So....they released the SD980. Great specs but....it's a friggin TOUCHSCREEN! How the hell are they going to be able to make a dive case for a damn touchscreen. They also have the SD940, but I'm...
  6. When will we see the successor to the SD960? September?

    Hi everyone. About a year ago, I lost my SD800 diving. I thought the SD870 that replaced it was too small an upgrade, so I just used my ancient S400 point & shoot to fill the gap. I was surprised...

    What is your dream camera?

    Hey guys. I've been waiting with great anticipation for the new Canon SD880, but I'm disappointed- primarily by it's lack of HD video. It got me thinking- if you can send a request form to Canon...

    Looks like the leak is spot on. It is unbelievable they didn't include HD video. They also have an ELPH with full manual controls. Granted, that isn't so important on this type of camera, but what...

    Thanks. That was my very first night ever taking star pics. I just guessed at all the settings for a few shots until I came up with that. I think stopping down would've increased sharpness a bit,...

    If you can get the milky way in, astrophotography without streaks can be nice. I took this at 10mm, 90 sec, f3.5, iso1600 in New Zealand (see the clouds of Magellan). In hindsight, I should've...

    SD880 leaked (SD870 replacement)

    10.0 MP (1/2.3" sensor)
    4x optical zoom (28mm-112mm)
    3.0" LCD (230,000 pixels)
    Digic 4

    And here is what it'll look like......

    That is why I said " This has to be near the top of the subcompact-heap IQ-wise". I don't expect it to be as good as the SLR (otherwise I wouldn't have bought the SLR). I suppose I can rephrase it...

    That is the one I would've picked. You are probably going to be very surprised how much more you appreciate the wide angle lens than 5x zoom.

    I just took a 20 country, 9 month around the world trip as my inaugural trip with my XTi (with Canon 10-22, Sigma 17-70, and Canon 70-300 IS and MacBook). I was a bit nervous dragging all this...

    The reason a lot of newer cameras can't beat cameras like the F30 at high iso is because of pixel density- i.e. lot of pixels on the same size or smaller sensor. The two things most consumers look...

    Do you ever print greater than 8x10? If not, don't fret over megapixels. Besides- the more MP on a sensor, the more noise there will be, which is bad for diving since you're usually in low light. ...

    Cut out anything about included software, and maybe about the cameras menu system unless it is particularly notable (e.g. touchscreen)
