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.

Digitaltrends
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
  • Cons: Body color is problematic, very short battery life, screen should be better

  • Excerpt: As most will know Canon produce two ranges of small cameras the PowerShot and the Ixus. Having reviewed some tiny Ixus this seems quite large. The main difference is that PowerShot use ‘AA’ batteries and the Ixus a solid battery.

PhotographyBLOG
8 December 2010
  • Summary: The Canon IXUS 1000 HS is a largely successful attempt to marry the style of the IXUS range with a big zoom lens, but the 36mm not-so-wide-angle setting, poor battery life, a lack of refinement in the handling department and the high price tag detract from the overall experience.

  • Pros: Zoom in smaller sized body - general features - style
  • Cons: Detail in lighter areas of a photo
