With its 8.0 megapixel CCD, 4x optical zoom lens, image stabilization, and well-designed user interface, the Canon PowerShot SD850 IS takes over top spot in the popular PowerShot line with a compact body style well suited for travel.
Exposure remains under automatic control, something novices will appreciate, and the Canon SD850's pre-programmed Scene modes help with more tricky subjects. But the SD850 doesn't compromise on performance. It's a very responsive camera, with low shutter lag in daylight conditions, and good shot-to-shot speeds.
The Canon SD850 also sports good battery life, a capable Movie mode, and excellent download speed. The bright 2.5-inch color LCD monitor is excellent for framing and reviewing shots, and the overall design and layout of the SD850 IS is user-friendly and hassle-free.
