Canon PowerShot SD4500 IS review

 

The PowerShot SD4500 IS is Canon's second go-round with its high-sensitivity 10-megapixel backside-illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor and its Digic 4 image processor. Together they make up Canon's HS System, which primarily improves low-light photo quality,...

Lots of automatic shooting options; very good burst shooting; nicely designed.

Short battery life; average shooting performance; narrow lens.

The Canon PowerShot SD4500 IS delivers a long lens in an ultracompact body, as well as nice low-light photos and full HD movies--it just doesn't do it for very long without a recharge.

Canon PowerShot SD400

 

Announced in February 2005, the SD400 (which goes by the names of Digital IXUS 50 in Europe and IXY DIGITAL 55 in Japan) 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...

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...

Some purple fringing, Some edge softness at wide angle/max aperture, Battery life when using LCD not fantastic, No exposure information in record or playback mode, Very little manual control

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

Canon PowerShot SD400 review

 

Canon PowerShot SD400

Ultracompact design; long battery life; excellent burst capabilities; low shutter lag; versatile movie mode.

The SD400 has few manual controls or scene modes; image quality far from stellar.

The SD400's improved image quality makes this high-performance ultracompact one of the better choices in the current Canon Digital Elph lineup.

Canon PowerShot Digital Elph review

 

Canon PowerShot SD300 Digital Elph Generally stellar performance figures, great battery life, and an ultracompact design will score points for the Canon PowerShot SD300 with the point-and-shoot crowd, but its lack of manual controls, limited selection...

Ultracompact; solid battery life; excellent burst capabilities; low shutter lag; versatile movie mode.

Few manual controls or scene modes; inaccurate viewfinder with no diopter adjustment.

Putting excellent performance in an ultracompact package, the SD300 should please photographers who don't want manual controls or plentiful scene modes.

Canon IXUS 1000 HS Review

 

The Canon IXUS 1000 HS (also known as the SD4500 IS) is the first superzoom camera in the IXUS range, featuring a 10x optical zoom lens with a focal range of 36-360mm. The 10 megapixel Canon 1000 HS offers a high-sensitivity back-illuminated CMOS...

The Canon IXUS 1000 HS is a largely successful attempt to marry the style of the IXUS range with a big zoom lens, but the 36mm not-so-wide-angle setting, poor battery life, a lack of refinement in the handling department and the high price tag detract...
