Performance

I just went to Brazil and needed to take a small camera that wouldn't attract to much attention and would take nice photos. This camera worked out great for my needs. Photos taken in the day looked amazing. Only problem is the zoom is kinda week and you lose a lot of detail on night photos. Video recorder was very good and the video quality looked amazing when I connected it from the HDMI port on the camera directly to my TV. I give this camera a solid B,it could of been an A+ if the zoom was better but for its size, picture quality, and convenience it's still a very good camera.

This is my third Canon point and shoot and I have yet to be disappointed with the quality of the photos from these cameras. The SD780 is smaller in size and fits nicely in your pocket or purse so it's great to take anywhere with you. The buttons, however, may be too small for some although they are usable with some effort. All in all, the SD780 is an excellent choice for taking snapshots of everyday life happenings or special occasions.

Even when picture-taking conditions seem pretty unforgiving, you've got Canon on your side.
