    Question Recommended settings for SD870IS

    On my SD700 I had the following settings:

    Shooting mode: M
    Focus mode - use center point; turn AiAF** off
    Metering - Evaluative
    Sensitivity - 50
    Exposure Compensation: -1/3
    Auto focus assist lamp- ON
    Red-eye mode - OFF
    White balance - AUTO
    Digital Zoom - OFF
    LCD Review: OFF

    For the 870IS should I go the same?

    While your particular settings at any given time should be entirely dependent on the shooting situation, those are my exact default settings on my SD500 as well!
