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.
Conclusion: If you are not worried whether or not your camera will slip into a pocket then the Canon Powershot A1000 IS provides good value for money. It takes a decent shot in most situations and offers a few extra features over and above more basic digital cameras.
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.
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. Wir hatten die Gelegenheit, das Einsteigermodell auf Herz und Nieren zu testen.
