Canon Powershot SD450

 

Announced in August 2005, the SD450 (which goes by the name of Digital IXUS 55 in Europe) is the latest in a long line of ultra-compact 'ELPH' or 'IXUS' cameras stretching back to early 2000 (and a lot farther back than that in the film camera world)....

Very good resolution, Incredibly slim, compact design, Beautifully built and all-metal construction, Excellent color and white balance in most situations, Manual (custom) white balance, Good exposure and generally very reliable focus (using...

Fairly strong purple fringing, Some dynamic range issues (common to cameras using this sensor), Some edge and corner softness at wide angle/max aperture, Battery life when using LCD, No exposure information in record mode except when camera shake is an...

In an ideal world buying an ultra compact camera would not involve any compromise at all.

Canon PowerShot SD600 review

 

main page A lot of cameras in the crowded and competitive digital point-and-shoot market are all flash and no substance. They add all sorts of extra gimmicks such as fancy slide shows and colorful borders that don't actually contribute to the cameras'...

Excellent image quality; top-notch build quality; quick performance.

Basic feature set.

Despite its no-frills feature set, the Canon PowerShot SD600 delivers quality photos and strong performance in a small package.

Canon PowerShot SD450 Digital Elph

 

The Canon PowerShot SD450 takes darn good shots but may be too diminutive for some shutterbugs.

Quick performance and excellent image quality. Unique "My Color" feature. Sleek and very portable.

A little tricky to operate with larger hands. Menus could be improved. No manual settings.

Canon PowerShot Digital Elph review

 

PowerShot SD500 Sony's form-over-function DSC-T1 stylistic imitators not

Very well designed; the best start-up time in its class; quick shot-to-shot performance; novel fast frame-rate movie mode.

More frequent than usual purple fringing; longish flash shot-to-shot times.

The Canon PowerShot SD550 is a very well-designed, 7-megapixel snapshot camera. Just don't look for advanced controls.

In an ideal world buying an ultra compact camera would not involve any compromise at all. But this ain't a perfect world, and if you want a camera you really can carry with you anytime, anywhere then you have to accept there will be some trade-off in...
