Summary: The Canon PowerShot A1000 IS is cheaper than the other Canon cameras from the PowerShot series at Rs 11,995. It's nothing impressive and the lack of some advanced features means people who want to develop some photography skills are not going to enjoy using it. Users who want a simple point and shoot camera, click the odd photo might find it usable.
Summary: At first glance the new Canon Powershot A1000 IS looks identical to its bigger brother, the A2000. I reviewed both cameras at the same time and actually preferred the slightly cheaper A1000 model in many ways. Although offering a smaller 2.5 LCD screen and shorter 4x zoom lens, the A1000 is noticeably smaller and lighter, has a true optical viewfinder, and benefits from having a curved hand-grip area.
