The Canon Powershot A1000IS is a fantastic camera!
9 September 2012
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.
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.
I used to use film type cameras only on my job - never again.

Excerpt: I have done freelance photography all my life, selling photos to companies, winning contests, and giving my family photos of the kids that they could brag about. I would only use my expensive film type cameras. I knew everything about them and what settings to use for certain shots. But I was going broke on film, developing, and the CD that I would buy along with it so I could use what I needed into the computer. Looking back, boy was that old fashioned !
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.

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: This camera, the Canon A1000ls is a wonderful camera. It is very easy to use. I recently just bought it as my fugi camera died. I did not have the money to go the route I wanted so we opted for this camera instead. I am so very thankful we did. The zoom is great, the ease of using it is awesome. It fits right into my purse or pocket and I have to for any on the go that I need to do. It takes great, GREAT photo's. It takes great photo's indoor as well as outdoor.
Excerpt: My wife and I wanted a small digital camera to take along on trips, that would be easy to pack and quickly take out and use. We already had a high end digital camera, so this one was more for mobility, while still having a good image quality. This camera caught us as a good balance between price and features/quality. The camera does the job very well, and has a great image quality. It has enough settings to fit pretty much all our picture taking needs.
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.
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.
