  • Summary: Simple, You want great top notch quality pictures and never have to work for it, this is the camera you want. Infact, many times the pictures taken with the Canon A1000IS are actually superior to that of my 35mm High Tech top professional all the bells and whistles Big canon. One reason I started using this one more and more.
  • Pros: Absolutely can't go wrong with this Canon PowerShot A1000IS, Superb pictures with great quality, I use this same unit in all of my detailed investigations and never once had a picture questioned by higher authority. (Simply and A1-awesome camera).
  • Cons: Cnet does not know how to properly rate many items they list-(misleading) As for the camera...Battery life -Yelp she is a little hard on the two AA cells.

It's worth your while to investigate products.

  • Summary: The A1000 is not the latest model from Canon but selecting it was well worth the 30-45 minutes it took me to browse some reviews on the internet. I subscribe to Consumer Reports and its worth every penny of the cost. The A1000 received high marks from CR so I searched out other reviews from other sources. All concluded that this camera, even though it has been superseded by newer models, has some extremely attractive features.

Love it..

  • Summary: I've had this camera for only a week, but I already love it! Takes amazing pictures, nice and small, and very user friendly! I didn't think I would use the red-eye fixing feature on the camera, but I do and it's cool and easy to do..works great. I really like how when you are viewing pictures - if you turn the camera vertically, it turns the photo..very cool. Too much to list that I do like and can't find any cons so far!

"Best Value" for a Point-And-Shoot Camera

Happy Traveler "Happy Traveler", Amazon
29 November 2009
  • Summary: Unfortunately not many point-and-shoot cameras have optical viewfinders anymore and that's a shame. This camera DOES have an optical viewfinder and that helps it to stand above the crowd. It also has an LED screen but such screens are nearly impossible to see in bright sunlight. Holding a camera at arm's length to compose a picture on a screen can introduce shake and cause blurry photos. Therefore, for many, using an optical viewfinder is a much better option.

Canon Powershot A1000IS

  • Summary: Camera was purchased for my wife who reluctently agreed to enter the digital age. Wanted a point and shoot camera that was compact and fairly simple to use but she still wanted occasional creative control. She takes many photos in bright sunlight so a optical viewfinder(not too many point and shoot digitals have them) was a must since many LCD screens are difficult to see in bright light. So far the camera has met or exceeded her expectations.

Excellent Camera

Cliff, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera takes excellent pictures. I particularly like the Optical Image Stabalization, Motion sensor, and face recognition. I only make 4 X 6 prints. So far no problems. The pet/children mode does a good job of stopping action. I've used the optical viewfinder a couple of times. It doesn't show 100% of the picture, but it sure makes a difference in extreme sunlight.

Great camera for the price!

D. M. Castro, Amazon
29 November 2009
  • Summary: This is the first point in shoot camera I have bought in over 5 years so when I decided it was time to upgrade my old digital camera I was surprised to discover that I could get a 10MP digital camera for half the price of what I paid for my old 4MP digital camera. This camera is simple to use but delivers great photos. The main reasons I picked this camera is because of size and price and its performance which I have read about here and various camera websites.

Excellent camera for the occasional photo enthusiast

flamingo072952, Ebay
9 November 2009
  • Summary: I bought the Canon Powershot A1000 IS 10 Megapixel camera because I got a great deal on it, it's fairly easy to use, and because I can download pics to my computer or directly to my printer with ease. This is my first digital camera, and I'm very happy with the results that I have gotten so far. Because I only use it occasionally, battery life is not an issue for me, although according to the reviews I have read, it is not for the avid photographer.

For the price - it cannot be beat

Gordon H. Hughes "sunshine", Amazon

  • Summary: I've owned this camera for 6 months and it is one in a long line of Cannon camera's I have owned. There are no consumer cameras with better lenses and color rendition than Canon. I had some issues with my Canon $350 SD950 - but it was never picture quality - it was durability. I am pleased to say that the A1000 gets high marks for both durability and picture quality.

Gift for Daughter

B.H., Amazon
13 September 2009
  • Summary: I bought this for my daughter when she was expecting her first child. She wanted a good camera before the baby came. She liked my camera, a Canon PowerShot A750, and wanted one like it. Well the price for the 750 had gone way up. I found this one, on Amazon, and emailed her the link. She said it was just what she wanted. She is very happy with the camera. It is easy to use, has just enough settings that she can "get her feet wet" before she buys a more complicated one.
