If you're tired of red-eye and relying on flash, the Canon SD800 IS digital camera is your prayer answered.
The Canon SD800's built-in image stabilization combined with the high ISO sensitivity extends available light, non-flash photography into the darker realms. But don't be so dazzled with the SD800's stabilizing grace that you miss a couple of other cool new features on this little ELPH: Face recognition in Portrait mode, Category tagging of images, and a 28-105mm lens in a small pocket camera.
Designed for the person who doesn't want to worry about shutter speeds and apertures to get good pictures, the Canon SD800 IS focuses on handy options. If Auto mode doesn't do the trick, the Programmed Auto (M) accesses options like White Balance, EV compensation, and Metering. And if that's too much trouble, there's a healthy selection of 10 Scene modes on the Canon SD800 to solve almost any problem.
The SD800 IS is an excellent performer no matter what aspect you consider, with superior focusing and low light performance matched with a powerful flash that doesn't make you wait all day to recharge. And with a day-long battery, you couldn't ask for a better traveling companion than the Canon SD800 IS. Read the hands-on preview for more.
