Bought two - happy with one
8 December 2012
Summary: I bought two. The first one had such a low price I jumped at it without reading the description that included "for parts or repair". I don't know if I could ever use it for parts and I probably wouldn't spend the extra money to have it repaired. The second camera is what I gave the attached rating for which I am pleased. I use this camera regularly. My only problem so far is that it indicates "replace battery".
The Canon Powershot A1000IS is a fantastic camera!

Excerpt: This camera is fantastic. It is very easy to use and has many great features. We took it on vacation with us this year at Niagara Falls and the pictures were crystal clear. The camera has a zoom which is brings the scenery or person so much closer with still providing a very clear picture. There is a great feature, too, to take short videos. This has been great at school programs or sleepovers where the kids are doing funny shows. I have been very pleased with this...
Excerpt: I love Canon digital cameras. The only compaint I have is the delay between the picture taken and when I'm able to take another picture. It's around a 15 second delay and with two small kids that 15 seconds can be the difference between a good picture and a great picture. Other than that I love it, it's durable and the only digital camera I've used in 6 years.
Excerpt: What a great camera. It is lightweight, travels everywhere I need it to go. You only need two batteries and the camera is great on them. It is easy to operate for those of us that do not want a complicated piece of electronics. The image stabilizer does a great job with movements. Additionally, the view finder on the back is so large it is impossible not to get a picture of what you are trying to capture. I have used the video camera from A1000 several times and it...
Excerpt: My husband and I were given the Canon PowerShot A1000IS as a wedding gift about 4 months ago and we have taken over 300 pictures already. There are many great things about this camera. First, it's easy to use. There are several diferent modes such as auto, easy, portrait, landscape, ect. which make taking pictures in different settings a sinch. The flash is automatic. It has a video component. Second, the pictures are beautiful.

My new Canon PowerShot A 1000 IS works like a charm!

Excerpt: My new Canon PowerShot A 1000 IS works like a charm! I researched it and found it to be one of my top choices. I chose it after going to the stores to get a feel for each (Fuji, Sony, and Kodak) as to size, weight, grip, ease of operation, separate viewfinder and an excellent LCD screen. The still shots are crisp, as are the video and audio. As my arms and hands shake alot, the Image Stabilizer is very helpful.
Canon Powershot A1000IS Digital Camera--I love it.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I'm a little bit of a technophobe. When I bought my Canon PowerShot A1000IS, I had never used a digital camera before. I'd never even owned a traditional camera, unless you include that brownie I bought in 1982. Even so, with this camera it wasn't long before I was taking professional-quality photo's--photos that have landed me on the front page of Etsy about a half dozen times, and have prompted strangers to send me e-mails asking who my photographer is.
Excerpt: I spent a lot of time searching and reviewing cameras. I wanted to take beautiful pictures of my family, but with a compact and convenient camera. Sometimes getting those action shots takes a quick click instead of having to focus and choose the right settings. I love our Canon Rebel, but I wanted something smaller. I talked to a photographer friend who recommended the PowerShot. I was in love the minute I got it.
Excerpt: Just got this camera and still in my 90 day "test" window but have to say very easy to operate. Without consulting the manual I managed to take a short video and a couple of photos, including one on the timer. Very easy download to computer. Only thing that threw me was when it said to name it I thought they just meant that one picture but it was actually the name for all of the photos on the camera. The only thing I haven't liked is the rubber cover for the download...
