Summary: We don’t mind that the SD14’s specification isn’t groundbreaking because what’s on offer is all you need to take a photograph.

Summary: You could fill a page with the SD14's flaws. You could criticise its unsophisticated handling, the clumsy colour control and the noise at higher ISOs settings. But in the right conditions this camera produces image quality that you simply can't get from a conventional sensor.
Summary: Designed for the experienced photographer, the SD14 is, thankfully, free of preset scene modes but does have designated settings for things like Mirror-up, 2sec self timer with auto mirror up and a 10sec self timer, which are all useful.
Cons: Buffer fills up after six shots, Write speeds a little slow (restricting frame-rate), No RAW plus JPEG option, Start-up time slower than previously, Focus system fairly basic, JPEG images noisy at ISO100
