Summary: I love Canon products and usually I am loyal to them, but I hate to say that this isn't the best product Canon has ever made by a long shot. I understand that this ia a point and shoot camera, and as such i don't expect a professional level of output from it, but I figured the 7.1MP would help make up for it somewhat. Unfortunately, it does not seem to have mattered. I used to have an old 3.1MP Canon digital camera that took better pictures than this.
Summary: I really wanted to like this camera. I've been a fan and user of Canon's Digital Elph cameras since I got my first one (S110). Since then I've upgraded a couple of times, first to an S500 then to an SD450 and I was looking forward to the SD1000; more megapixels, higher ISO, the old retro look, and the new DIGIC III. At first, having received the camera, I was very pleased.
