Canon PowerShot SD300 Digital Elph

PC Magazine

  • Pros: Excellent daylight images and very good flash shots. Good menus. Tiny and tough.
  • Cons: Mediocre recycle times. Smallish LCD, Optical viewfinder placement could be better.

  • Conclusion: In an ideal world buying an ultra compact camera would not involve any compromise at all. But this ain't a perfect world, and if you want a camera you really can carry with you anytime, anywhere then you have to accept there will be some trade-off in terms of absolute image quality.
  • Pros: Incredibly compact design, Slim enough for any pocket or purse, Beautifully built and all-metal construction, Excellent color, Manual (custom) white balance, Very good resolution, Good exposure and generally very reliable focus, Good flash performance at short distances, Very, very fast, Good scr...
  • Cons: Strong purple fringing, Some edge softness at wide angle/max aperture, Battery life when using LCD not fantastic, Occasional lens flare, No exposure information in record or playback mode, Very little manual control

  • Excerpt: The PowerShot SD300 Digital ELPH ($400) is a totally new design in Canon's line of compact point-and-shoot cameras. The SD300 takes everything that made the S400 and S410 great and makes them smaller -- except for the LCD, which got a lot bigger.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality (though see issues below), Ultra-thin, stylish metal body, Robust performance, Excellent continuous shooting mode (with the right memory card), First-rate movie mode (finally!), Big LCD for a small camera, AF-assist lamp, Optional underwater case, Nice software bundle
  • Cons: Softness around edges and corners of photos; above average purple fringing, as well, Redeye, Some vignetting, especially in flash shots, Cheap plastic door over memory card / battery compartment, LCD doesn't "gain up" very much in low light, Can't swap memory cards while camera is on a tripod, Mo...

Canon IXUS 40

Cameras
8 August 2014
  • Conclusion: I prefer the IXUS 40 to other Canon IXUS cameras. The slim shape makes carrying the camera round easy and the large LCD screen is a further advantage. As with most Canon digital cameras picture quality takes care of itself. In fact it is a good all round model. I also like the build quality.
  • Pros: Slim style, Build quality, Large LCD screen
  • Cons: Buttons on the back of the camera could be confusing.

  • Summary: Canon pulls off a hat trick here by offering a ‘fun’ picture-taking experience, good-quality images nearly every time and a stylish design that almost makes the Ixus 40 a fashion accessory.

Pocket Lint
22 November 2004
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, metering and AF combine with full manual control (if you want it) and wrapped in a very stylish package to boot.
  • Cons: Disappointingly fuzzy optical viewfinder and plastic battery/memory card bay cover mar an otherwise excellent package.
