This is a sister model to and updated version of the popular SD 700 IS, one of the better ultra compact point and shoot models launched last year. The Powershot SD800 is equipped with an extra one million pixels or so and has a great new feature: a 28-105mm (35mm equiv.) zoom lens, making it one of the few cameras in this sector of the market with true wide angle capabilities. Other changes include an ISO 1600 option, DIGIC III processor complete with face detection mode, and an improved screen (higher resolution and wider viewing angle).
