Canon PowerShot SD750


The Canon PowerShot SD750 is very similar to our current Editors' Choice compact camera, the SD1000inside and out. The two cameras feature 7-megapixel resolution and 3X optical zoom lenses, and they sport almost identical "box and circle" chassis...

3-inch LCD. Great picture quality and performance. No shutter lag. Face detection technology.

Lacks an optical viewfinder. No MPEG-4 video encoding.

The PowerShot SD750 is an excellent compact cam with a large 3-inch display that's second only to its sibling the SD1000.

PowerShot SD750


The Canon PowerShot SD750 is a skinny digital camera with a fat LCD screen. The screen measures a whopping 3 inches diagonally, which doesn't leave much room on the 3.6-inch wide backside. The camera packs in face detection technology, but its specs...

Canon PowerShot SD750 (black)


Sandwiched between similar 7-megapixel siblings--the PowerShot SD800 IS on one side and the PowerShot SD1000 on the other--the Canon PowerShot SD750 nevertheless manages to distinguish itself as a well-designed, practical option for snapshooters who...

Nicely designed; excellent high-ISO photo quality; relatively fast; above-average movie quality; face detection.

Photos tend to have purple fringing; no optical viewfinder.

The Canon PowerShot SD750 has an attractive design, large LCD, and excellent photo quality for an ultracompact.

Canon PowerShot SD750 and SD1000 First Impressions Review


In February 2007, Canon announced the PowerShot SD750 and SD1000 digital cameras to replace the older SD630 and SD600 models. Don't let the numbers fool you: the SD750 is the fancier camera with its 3-inch LCD screen compared to the SD1000's 2.5-inch...

- High resolution LCD screens - Playback mode - Auto ISO Shift feature - Compact, solid bodies

- No optical zoom in movies - Expensive - No internal memory- 3x optical zoom

The Canon SD750 and SD1000 fall in the middle of the Digital Elph line with their standard feature set and 7.1 megapixels. The models above these have flashier features like optical image stabilization and longer lenses.

Canon Powershot SD750


The "brain" of these new Digital ELPH cameras is DIGIC III, the newest iteration of Canon's ultra-efficient (and proprietary) image processor. The DIGIC III Image Processor accounts for the camera's higher performance levels including faster start up,...

With Canon's new Face Detection AF/AE/FE technology, the camera can detect, lock on and track multiple human faces in a scene simply by pressing the shutter button halfway. The face detection algorithm automatically prioritizes and selects faces and...

No Creative Zone modes (Programmed Auto, Manual, Aperture and Shutter Priority) ; Long flash recycling time ; 3x zoom seems a little short outdoors these days ; Touch sensitive control dial is awkward ; Soft images generally ; Color balance in Auto too...

A feature-packed little camera, the Canon SD750 offers seven megapixels and a whopping 3 inch LCD display which serves as the only option for image framing -- it forgoes any form of optical viewfinder. The Canon SD750's 3x zoom lens covers a fairly...

Canon PowerShot SD750


The Canon PowerShot SD750 resembles a flat screen TV with its 0.77-inch width and enormous 3-inch LCD screen. The features are otherwise fairly basic: 7.1 megapixels, a 3x optical zoom lens, and Automatic Exposure modes that make the SD750 very easy to...

The Canon PowerShot SD750 has a feature set similar to other digital cameras on the market except for its massive LCD screen – and it has increasing competition in this area, too. The 3-inch LCD is awesome because of its huge previews, readable menu...

Product Specifications

Canon's iconic ELPH design achieves a stunning new evolution with the PowerShot SD750 Digital ELPH. Utterly simple edge lines and cut surfaces gleam subtly with high-grade finishes. Of course, style means little without substance, and here the SD750 Digital ELPH more than delivers. 7.1 megapixels and DIGIC III create magnificent images, while exciting advanced technologies include Face Detection, Red-eye Correction, and time-lapse movies. Always sized to go, the SD750 Digital ELPH is now extra-durable, with a tough scratch-resistant coating on its anti-reflective, brilliantly colorful 3.0-inch LCD screen.
