As well as being compared against other compacts, the Canon PowerShot SD880 IS is also often compared to travel zooms, super zooms, ultra compacts, entry-level DSLRs and digicams. The Canon PowerShot SD880 IS's top rivals come from Canon (such as the PowerShot ELPH 360 HS and the ELPH 100 HS) and Sony (such as the Cyber-shot DSC-WX5 and the Cybershot W570)

compared toCompact competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Canon SD880 IS compared to other compact competitors include: it has a significantly wider wide angle lens (28 mm vs 35 mm), has a much larger screen (3" vs 2.5"), has better image stabilization (lens vs none) and is newer (september 2008 vs may 2007).

However, on average it is slightly larger (compact (94×57×24 mm) vs super compact (92×52×22 mm)), has a CCD-family sensor (CCD vs CMOS), is slightly heavier (195 g vs 155 g) and doesn't have a viewfinder (none vs tunnel).
