SD1000 is an outstanding camera packed with features you'll use
29 October 2013
Summary: This camera has been outstanding for me for the past many years so I was disappointed when my son dropped it in a big sand dune on South Padre Island. It never performed well after that. I was excited to find this camera still available on ebay when I did some checking and the best part is it's old enough where the used ones in really good condition are quite inexpensive. I would not hesitated to buy one of these.
Great person to buy from I would buy from them again

Summary: I bought this camera because recommended it they said it had good quality and it was small. They were correct it does take good pictures. I think overall it is a good camera. But I would prefer something easier to navigate with. I actually had to read the manual(imagine that) ya I am a bit lazy when it comes to stuff like that.
Summary: A friend has this model camera and we were so impressed with it's picture quality, we decided to purchase one. The strange thing is. we have several other Canon "point and shoot" cameras that cost more than this model; however, none of them can produce the same quality pictures. We love it and would recommend this model to anyone who is looking for an easy to use camera that produces really good quality pictures.
Find one in good condition; it is a fantastic camera for the money.

Summary: Although this model Canon is now about 5 years old; in terms of value for money spent I feel that you can not buy a better digital camera for the money. The build quality of this camera; which is made in Japan rather than China - is first rate. The anodized aluminum case adds a bit of weight but is so durable and good looking. The Elph that I purchased for around $50 may not have every 2012 bell and whistle but it takes excellent pictures for a point and shoot camera.
Summary: This has been my "go to" camera for some time. I use it to film flights of my starflight ultralight to post on youtube and it handles the vibration quite well. Really an excellent little camera. The only issue at all is that repairs are expensive making it less costly to buy another camera used than to fix it.
Summary: I love this camera. My 1st one broke and I bought another one to replace it because I was so happy with the picture quality, size of the camera, and general durability of the product. I recommend it to anyone looking for a quality small digital camera.
Canon's SD 1000 makes an excellent accessory for the tourist

Summary: I love this camera because it has a viewfinder which can be used when it is too sunny to see the screen. I had owned one before and used it extensively until I dropped it. I repurchased the camera after a trip to France when I grew frustrated at blurred pictures taken by viewing the LCD screen. There are other features such as zoom, compact size, face recognition software, adjustable light sensitivity that make this camera work well for the day-to-day tourist.
Summary: Product arrived as expected. Great camera! I owned this camera previously and gave one to my son. Love the compact size and the great pictures. We own several point and shoot cameras and this is my favorite!
