Summary: Just a few words -
The smaller the camera, the smaller the optical glass. The smaller the optical glass, the smaller the maximum camera aperture. The smaller the cameras maximum aperture, the inability to take excellent photos in lower light is lost.
Summary: I got this camera as I was stepping down from a Canon DSLR. I had been pursuing photography as a fun hobby for many years, and quite enjoyed it. Only thing was, although my photographs were good (trust me they were :-D ), they were probably like MOST amateur/hobbyist photographer's pics in that they...
Summary: I am not a professional or amateur photographer, so my needs are rather simple -- take good pictures, and be easy to use and carry. The SD1000 fits these needs quite well. Also, the time to being ready after turning the camera on is quick, so it's good for taking pictures at parties, conventions,...
Summary: Given the size and price of this digital camera, it takes amazingly good pictures. The digital zoom isn't so great and results in a LOT of noise at higher zoom levels, but for point & shoot situations it works great. Some of the functions & features provided are nice - particularly the color-swap.
Summary: Cutest camera I've seen to date. Light as anything, so be careful when you carry it. Great photos, surprised how well the flash works. Had an SD410 prior to this one and this upgrade made a big difference in both carry weight and performance. Unbelievably fast startup.
Summary: Okay people you know this camera is good. You have read all of previous reviews and they are true. But here is two major issues which won't bother people making 4 by 6 pictures from this camera. sharpness-not good, but you can tweak it in photoshop.
Summary: I purchased the SD1000 after owning the S3IS for a short time. The S3 is great, and superior to the SD1000, but too large to carry all the time. The SD1000 fits snug into the Canon leather case and rides in my shirt pocket almost all the time.
Summary: I bought this camera to use on an extended vacation this summer to some national parks out west. It's exceptionally easy to use and took excellent pictures, some of which we had printed in 11x17 size with great results.
Summary: I usually don't take the time to review any items, but I'm just so impressed by quality of this camera. When compared to other ultra-compact cameras from Canon or other brands, this one should be the obvious choice.
