Canon IXUS 1000 HS / PowerShot SD4500 IS

Camera Labs
1 March 2011
  • Summary: Starting with the lens, the IXUS 1000 HS / SD4500 IS offers a 36-360mm equivalent range. Annoyingly this lacks the 28mm or even wider coverage of rival super-zooms, not to mention their often longer total reach, but that's part of the compromise of having a slimmer body.
  • Pros: Slimmer and a little lighter than most compact super-zooms., Sensible resolution means better than average low-light quality., 1080p video, slow motion at QVGA and miniature effect at 720p., Handheld Night Scene mode greatly reduces noise at high ISOs.
  • Cons: 10x range falls short of some rivals and lacks true wide angle., Relatively poor battery life has you recharging frequently., Best quality 4:3 mode looks small on wide display., Highly compelling rivals from the likes of Panasonic and Sony.

Canon PowerShot SD4500 Review

7 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Canon’s newest ELPH packs a 10x optical zoom into a compact 10-megapixel camera that also shoots full HD video. At first you’d think this is a winning combination. Let’s see if those initial impressions are on the money… “She’s like a rainbow” is a line from a classic Stones’ tune, but if you’re...
  • Pros: 10x optical image stabilized lens, 3-inch widescreen LCD, very good optical image stabilizer, low noise in dim light

Good Gear Guide.au
28 March 2011
  • Summary: Unfortunately the Canon IXUS 1000 HS didn't 'wow' us as much as we would have liked it to. Chromatic aberration, poor battery life and generally disappointing image results are a real shame considering the specs looked so good.
  • Pros: Average image quality, chromatic aberration in photos, poor battery life
  • Cons: Shoots high speed footage, tilt shift, 10X optical zoom
