Canon PowerShot A1000 IS

Digital Photography Interface
22 December 2008
  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot A1000 is a nice addition to Canon’s entry-level line of cameras. It’s just like the A2000 I reviewed, with a smaller 4X lens, screen size and the addition of an optical viewfinder.
  • Pros: Compact design with a fairly decent right hand grip and viewfinder, Generally good image quality (with one issue below though), Very good battery life, Fast picture-taking performance, Effective red-eye removal and low color fringing
  • Cons: No manual controls and no more conversion lens compatibility, Corners a tad soft (but I’m nitpicking here), Reflective LCD needs “correct angle” outdoors, low in resolution, Lacks a battery indicator; lens doesn’t retract if the camera is low on battery

Digital Camera Review
1 December 2008
  • Summary: Canon’s PowerShot A-series digital cameras have been popular with discerning digicam purchasers since the introduction of the groundbreaking little A20 in 2000. Consumers liked them because they were affordable, relatively compact, user-friendly, feature rich, and sturdily built.
  • Pros: Compact, Good lens, Optical viewfinder, The A-series handgrip returns!
  • Cons: No manual exposure capability, Battery life could be better, Auto white balance about par for the course

  • Conclusion: Canon's PowerShot A1000 IS excels at the basics—dead-simple "Easy Mode" shooting, sharp images, and speedy performance—all at a very palatable price.
  • Pros: Great image quality for the price. Handy "Easy Mode" prevents you from accidentally changing settings. Fast recycle/boot-up times with little shutter lag.
  • Cons: Bulky. Viewfinder clips part of your images. High amounts of noise even at low ISO settings.

Canon Powershot A1000 IS

12 November 2008

Solid all-round compact camera for novice users.

Good Gear Guide.au
11 May 2008
  • Conclusion: A good choice for novice photographers, the Canon PowerShot A1000 offers a mixture of high quality 10-megapixel pictures and a beginner-oriented feature set. It does, however, capture quite noisy shots, making night photography somewhat difficult
  • Pros: Sharp shots, minimal chromatic aberration, speedy performance
  • Cons: Noise levels quite high, missing the manual options of past A series units

  • Excerpt: Le canon PowerShot A1000 IS est un compact qui n’ a rien d’exceptionnel mais qui désuivra par son rapport qualité prix global. C’est un appareil assez compact au zoom au zoom 35-140 (tout de même stabilisé ) et au classique capteur CDD de 10 MP, dont Canon a déjà su tirer le meilleur avec profit...
  • Pros: Rapport qualité - prix, Stabilisation, Viseur optique

Canon PowerShot A1000 IS gépteszt

30 October 2009
  • Conclusion: Tesztgépünk első fényképezőgépnek kiváló, mivel egy kicsivel többet tud, mint a boltokban kapható kiskompakt gépek döntő többsége. Annak ellenére, hogy nincsenek rajta manuális beállítást lehetővé tevő funkciók, az átnézeti kereső, a könnyen elérhető főbb beállítások és a jó képminőség kedvet adhat...

Canon PowerShot A1000 IS: Do každé rodiny

11 August 2009
  • Conclusion: Z těla přístroje zmizela výrazná dominanta v podobě vystouplého gripu – nebo přesněji, grip už nepůsobí tak výrazně, protože se tělo rozšiřuje plynule. Stále se do něj ale vejdou dva tužkové články, kterými je fotoaparát napájen, držení přístroje zůstalo dostatečně pohodlné.

Canon Powershot A1000 IS: ordentliche Einsteigerkamera

7 May 2009
  • Summary: Wie viel Digitalkamera bekommt man für 125 Euro? Gigantische Zoomobjektive mit Weitwinkel, Megapixel bis zum Abwinken, hochauflösende Riesendisplays und dergleichen darf man nicht erwarten. Die Canon Powershot A1000 IS bietet allerdings eine solide Ausstattung zum geringen Preis.
  • Pros: optischer Sucher, einfache Bedienung, günstig, ordentliche Bildqualität
  • Cons: begrenzte manuelle Einstellungen, mittelmäßige Geschwindigkeit
