Battery issues

  • Summary: I purchased this camera as a gift for my mother. She wanted a new camera before a big trip. She also packed her older Canon point and shoot as "back up" even though I teased her about it. Turned out she was right because the battery life on this camera is pretty pathetic.

An excellent pocket camera

  • Summary: I purchased the Canon Powershot SD4500IS after borrowing my daughter's camera to take along on an active family vacation. What I liked about that camera is:I could pass the camera through the loop of the wrist strap & secure it to the belt loop on my jeans.

Great for pictures but OK for video

  • Summary: The pictures are amazing but I am not really happy with the video aspect of it because I think it tries to focus too much so sometimes I get blurry video (this could be a user error because I have not read the manual). It takes good video if you are videoing stationary objects and not moving a lot.

Good for photos, not so great video, terrible battery life

  • Summary: I bought this as a replacement for my SD870IS - which is still working fine after many years, just hoping for basically the same camera with HD video and more zoom. Boy, was I ever disappointed. :( This does not hold a candle to the SD870, at all.

Great features but poor performance, maybe needs a firmware update!

  • Summary: Purchased in September 2010 and already retired by Christmas 2010 due to poor image quality and ridiculously poor battery life (<100 pictures/charge) which is unacceptable at this price point.

Canon IXUS 1000 HS

camera addict, CNET
31 March 2011
  • Summary: I own many cameras and I like to update with new technology, I bought this based on its high reviews on video recording and HD. The camera is heavy and clumsy to hold but very tough. Instructions are weak and not enough guidance on how to use the video recording in the 1080.
  • Pros: The video is a nice performer but instructions are not clear to the new HD user
  • Cons: Battery! I took 25 pictures and about 2 mins video and the battery started flashing

  • Summary: I am not an professional photographer. Prior to this camera, I had a Canon PowerShot SD450 (5mp & 3x), I needed an upgrade because I was having some problems with it. I contacted Canon to see if they could offer me with any advise only to say, I can get a refurbish camera or if I wanted it fixed it...

  • Summary: Quick Review: Bought it at the end of November 2010. Use it quite often but I have the some big complaints.. 1. It takes a long time from turning on the camera to when the picture is actually taken. I have had several friends say "Take the picture already!

Too Much Hype?

Paul D. Mcinerny, Amazon
21 February 2011
  • Summary: I'm one of those type of people that agonized and researched this camera before making the purchase. I'd probably still be researching, but Best Buy had a deal that nobody has been able to beat since, so I bought the camera.
