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.

CNET

  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot SD4500 IS delivers a long lens in an ultracompact body, as well as nice low-light photos and full HD movies--it just doesn't do it for very long without a recharge.
  • Pros: Lots of automatic shooting options; very good burst shooting; nicely designed.
  • Cons: Short battery life; average shooting performance; narrow lens.

  • Conclusion: A lot of people find some extra zoom power comes in handy so it is good to see this level of zoom in a small compact camera. The Canon IXUS 1000 HS is a good choice if the features are a good match for your own personal requirements.
  • Pros: Zoom in smaller sized body - general features - style
  • Cons: Detail in lighter areas of a photo

Canon Ixus 1000HS

GadgetSpeak
21 January 2011
  • Summary: 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.
