Canon PowerShot A1000 IS review

 

The Canon PowerShot A1000 IS is not an exciting pocket camera by any means. But if you want the convenience of AA batteries, an optical viewfinder, optical image stabilization, and a low price, this camera has them and takes good photos, too.

Viewfinder; simple operation; inexpensive.

Limited shooting controls; mixed performance.

The entry-level Canon PowerShot A1000 IS is low-cost without being lousy.

Canon PowerShot A1000 IS

 

Canon's speedy A1000 IS captures beautiful images and features a foolproof Easy Mode, which actually prevents beginners from adjusting advanced settings.

Great image quality for the price. Handy "Easy Mode" prevents you from accidentally changing settings. Fast recycle/boot-up times with little shutter lag.

Bulky. Viewfinder clips part of your images. High amounts of noise even at low ISO settings.

Canon Powershot A1000 IS

 

At $199 (list), the PowerShot A1000 IS is the least-expensive 10-megapixel camera Canon has released this year. Despite its low price, it's a great pick for those who prefer to shoot using auto settings exclusively. In Easy Mode, the camera delivers...

Canon PowerShot A1000 IS Review

 

The Canon PowerShot A1000 IS digital camera is a new addition to the popular PowerShot range, which has traditionally offered a compelling combination of features and affordable price. The A1000 IS is around 25% smaller than its predecessor, the...

The A1000 IS also suffers from less than stellar image quality in low-light due to obvious noise appearing at ISO 400 and faster, a low-resolution LCD screen, annoyingly slow flash recycle times, and a slow continuous shooting speed. Which leaves us ...

Canon PowerShot A1000 IS Digital Camera - First Shots - The Imaging Resource!

 

The Canon A1000IS has a very similar design and body shape to that of the Canon E1 we cover elsewhere, but the A1000IS has a bit more elegant, two-toned look, evidently designed to appeal to a more mainstream demographic. (The Canon E1 is really aimed...

With a 10-megapixel sensor and a 4x optical zoom lens covering a focal length range from 35 to 140 mm equivalents (a moderate wide angle to moderate telephoto) and a 2.5 inch LCD screen on the back, the A1000IS is solidly in the mainstream of consumer...
