Summary: This Canon PowerShot SD1400 IS review shows a very nice compact camera that will deliver really good image quality for beginning photographers. The SD1400 has some issues with response times -- trust me, you'll quickly become frustrated seeing the "Busy" message on the screen -- but the SD1400...
Pros: Image quality is outstanding with the SD1400, Start-up times are fast; very little shutter lag, Thin, colorful camera body provides stylish look, HDMI port is nice addition for HD video, SD1400 performs surprisingly well with small, built-in flash
Cons: Camera's shot to shot delays are annoying, A few design flaws can make SD1400 a little frustrating to use, A larger optical zoom would be nice, LCD's "live view" has trouble keeping up when photographer is moving
Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot SD1400 IS is a great choice if you want a very small camera that's easy to use and produces high-quality images. If you have big hands, though, the controls might be too tiny.
Pros: Good image quality. Very small build. Easy to use. Decent low-light performance.
Cons: Tiny controls. A keen eye might detect slight blooming in images.
Summary: The beauty is more than skin-deep too. The IXUS 130 / SD1400 IS inherits the 720p HD movie mode and HDMI port of its predecessor, while featuring more sophisticated scene detection which does a great job of working out what you're trying to take in Auto; indeed we'd be happy to leave it on Auto for...
Pros: Very slim and stylish body; looks and feels great., 4x stabilised zoom with 28mm wide coverage., Foolproof Auto with scene detection., 720p HD video and HDMI output.
Cons: Pointlessly slow continuous shooting speed., Cannot optically zoom while filming., Optical viewfinder of earlier model missing., Face, smile and wink timers in strange location.

Pros: Compact, Good build quality, Very good images
Cons: Limited optical zoom, No aperture/shutter control, Some purple fringing
Excerpt: The Canon IXUS 130 is a pocket sized digital camera. It has 14 megapixels and a 4x wide angle zoom lens. The IXUS 130 can shoot High Definition movies. Other key features include image stabilisation and a 2.7 inch LCD screen.

Summary: Canon's IXUS 130 IS is small enough to reside in your pocket so that you can take it anywhere -- but the best part is that it's capable of capturing beautifully clear and vibrant images. It's not a perfect camera though: its buttons can be hard to press and its zoom control is awkward.
Pros: Excellent clarity, captures colours vividly, f/2.8 aperture, reasonably good performance in dim lighting conditions
Cons: Build quality could be better, buttons are hard to press, top of case creaks, battery compartment can be hard to open, poor zoom control
Excerpt: Canon’s IXUS 130 is an incredibly stylish snapper, with rounded contours and the strong, sturdy build that characterises the IXUS range. It weighs under 135g and measures just 18mm at its thickest point, as well as being only 55mm tall and 90mm long – it’s small enough to fit into any pocket with...
