'With a superb f/2 wide-angle lens, a 10.1-megapixel 1/1.6-inch CCD sensor, a three-inch 460k monitor, full manual exposure controls, Raw capture mode and the best image quality in its class, the LX3 was an instant hit, especially with photography enthusiasts looking for a compact camera that could rival the performance of their digital SLRs. '
'This camera doesn't leave you with the soft, slightly murky images delivered by your standard point and shoot. '
'the SD880 is nice-looking, easy to hold, and feels sturdy in your hands.'
'The body is smooth and there's no area that promotes any sort of secure feel when holding the camera, particularly one-handed, so like most cameras of this size and shape the SD880 cries out for use of the wrist strap to avoid drops.'
'Exposure is fully automatic, but the user can tweak it with 2.0EV of exposure compensation and four metering modes to handle difficult lighting, including a mode which ties metering to the camera's face detection system.'
'Nearly every Canon compact camera we've tested recently has merited a high rating.'
