konao, CNET
24 March 2010
  • Pros: When it worked it was OK., I would pay more for a camera that isn't so cheeply made.
  • Cons: Go check and see how many out there have the same lens error message. Da Ya think they plan it this way?

"Shoddy Workmanship"

Kiyote, CNET
26 July 2009
  • Pros: Decent features, good price
  • Cons: Camera stopped working shortly after the warranty period ran out. It was never damaged or anything, it just stopped showing any image on the lcd screen, and any pictures taken are blank. Non-warranty repair from Canon costs as much as a new camera.

"Great outside pics/Horrible inside pics"

  • Pros: The quality of the pics taken outside are awesome! Options are nice and menu is pretty easy.
  • Cons: Pics taken inside are fuzzy with tiny dots (like on a tv). Face recognition doesn't work that well.

Major Flaw

Overstock
10 August 2008
  • Summary: As the owner of this camera for one year, I would not recomend buying it. Many owners are getting an error message "lens error restart camera" just google that and you can read all about it. Canon claims there's no problem. I would avoid this one. Too many better digitals out there. Probably why overstock has an excess of them.

Lens Error Problem

John Lessnau, Amazon
3 May 2008
  • Summary: Before considering this camera do a google search on: Canon sd1000 lens error 19,500 results Here's my story: After 3 months I got the dreaded Cannon SD1000 lens error. We took pictures of a beach and unfortunately left the picture card in the camera when sending it under warranty. This gave Canon the "sand in camera" excuse.
