cheers mate. I ordered the camera. Waitning to be delievered now. will post my review when i test it. Deceided between it, Panasonic FX33 and Fuji 50fd. I decided on the canon,because of the better quality of the images,and the bigger monitor. Hope i was right.

Well they're all great compacts, so I think you'll be happy! The Canon really is a classy model... looking forward to hearing what you think!

hi gordon.just received the camera today,but didn't have time to make any pictures with it or test it. But i want to make it to its maximum settings best for shooting normal pictures. One of the rival sites gave this advice:

1. Choose one ISO speed higher than the camera's lowest; (which i can do)
2. Set the focal-length of the lens to a setting that's a little longer than its widest; (that i don't know what is it or how to do it from the menu?)
3. Set an aperture that's one or two smaller than its largest; - (this too)
4. Set the Image Quality to the highest setting (Superfine for this Canon); and (that i can do)
5. Shoot when and where there's plenty of light but avoiding high-contrast situations. that i understand.

Do you think they're alright,and can you tell me how to make the others. Thanks a lot

Hi Gordon,

A friend just came to me last week and asked what kind of compact camera to buy and based on your review I pointed him toward the 860IS/870IS. I was taking a look at the camera and it definitely feels like a quality piece of equipment.

Thanks for the review.
