  • Conclusion: The Canon SD30 is one stylish, ultra-compact camera which is head-turning, though it lacks "real" manual controls and has a weak flash. The SD30 is fast and has a great LCD. Photos are great but a little noisy and there's lots of red-eye.
  • Pros: Ultra-compact and stylish, Camera dock and remote control included, Great LCD performance, Extremely fast, Unlimited continuous shooting, Overall sharp photos
  • Cons: Weak flash, Limited manual controls, Few external controls (ie. zoom controller is combined with 4 way controller), Movies, though unlimited, are choppy, So-so battery life, Red-eye, Some soft edges
