      I’ve usually been the type to simply get a quick point and shoot compact digital camera. I never spent much money on them before but I often got jealous hearing others who had spent a little more and gotten one of those tiny Canon Elph cameras that fit in the palm of your hand.

      Well, I finally broke down and bought a Canon SD 850 IS. I am so thrilled with

      it. It takes beautiful pictures. I can play with the settings or I can set it on Auto and use it like a point and shoot. I’ve never, not once in the 5 months I’ve owned it taken a bad picture! I find myself LOOKING for things to take pictures of. I opted for the 850 over some of the newer models because it actually got a better review than ...

      • some of the newer models.

        It has the zoom of course 4.0 Optical and there is also the nifty added feature of image stablization. It’s a nice 8.0 megapixel and it has 18 shooting modes to choose from. You can take a nice zoomed picture from quite a length away and because of the image stabization, it comes out beautifully. I’ve been to many a concert in the past and been in the

        8th-10th row and took pictures with other cameras zoomed and of course they came out grainy and blurry. This camera shoots those long distance shots perfectly. You’d swear I was front row.

        I can’t say enough about this little camera. I take it with me everywhere and it literally inspires the photographer in me. I still haven’t finished learning all the neat little features it has, but I’m having fun doing it!

    A message on my Cannon SD850 Elph continues to pop up saying Card Locked I can`t seem to figure out how to unlock the card so that I can erase pictures and use some of the options on my camera. Please help Thanks

    Card Locked is actually referring to your storage card. I don’t know the type of storage card that you’re using but most have a lock and unlock switch. You should remove the card from the camera to check to see if it has one. If it does, you should set it to unlock.
