I own a Canon PowerShot SD850. I bought it a couple of years back so that I did not have to lug my Nikon DS around. I wanted something easy to handle and that takes great pictures. I have never been disappointed. This camera has been on more trips across the globe than most people can imagine. It takes quick wonderful photos. We have received much worth out of it than we ever paid.
I love the various settings and am especially fond of the black and white photos. Its user friendly and can go from one preset to the next. We bought a larger SD card and never have to worry about it running out of room.
Another wonderful feature is its video camera mode. I love filming the many brief or unplanned moments that pop up on trips, at parties or with family and friends. We have worn this camera out and already have our eye the next one we are going to purchase. It will be the same brand but obviously the newer model. I can’t wait to see what amazing things a newer model may be capable of.
