Canon PowerShot SD 750 or Ixus 75 Digital Camera Review
13 December 2007
Excerpt: This Canon digital camera (slimmest optical zoom camera from Canon) offers superb response times and high-quality image rendering through Canonâ€™s DIGIC III image processor. Some interesting features include: Red-Eye Correction in playback, Face Detection AF/AE/FE and Noise Reduction Technology, ISO 1600 and Auto ISO Shift, 17 Shooting modes plus My Colors photo effects.
Excerpt: I made a great choice in selecting the PowerShot SD750 as my next digital camera. I was looking for a digital camera that was small and lightweight. As a novice photographer I don’t like to mess around with ISO, aperture settings, and shutter speed variations; this camera was just right for me.

Summary: While the pictures could be a little sharper, the Digital IXUS 75 excelled in all other areas and is a brilliant choice if you're after an all purpose camera to throw in your pocket and forget about.
Pros: Great colour, low chromatic aberration, low noise, big screen, compact design
Summary: A little thicker and a little heavier than some other ultra-compact cameras, despite its mainly plastic construction the 7.1Mp Canon IXUS 75 has superb build-quality and fits nicely in your pocket.
Conclusion: Having reviewed a number of cameras recently that I was decidedly unimpressed with it comes as something of a relief to look at the test photos I took with the Canon IXUS 75. In almost all areas this camera is comfortably above average and in many areas it is far in advance of the competition. I know that you can buy similar cameras at a cheaper price, but this one is worth the extra money. Recommended.
