Canon looked to the very first Elph for inspiration when designing the PowerShot SD1000 Digital Elph, and came up with a quintessential iteration of the icon: slim, clean-lined and fully flat. Inside, the SD1000 Digital Elph looks only to the future: 7.1 megapixels, a 3x optical zoom and advanced DIGIC III ensure top-quality images, while focus is fast and sharp and red-eye is automatically corrected. The large and more colorful LCD screen now has a tough, anti-reflective coating that makes it as durable as it is beautiful.

    Trying to make a decision between Canon A series, S series, SD series?, May 15, 2007

    This review is from: Canon PowerShot SD1000 7.1MP Digital Elph Camera with 3x Optical Zoom (Silver) (Electronics)

    I have owned several Canon A series, Canon SD series, the Canon S series and also the S2/S3 IS. So here’s the skinny as an amateur user.

    If you don’t want to read the long review, here’s the summary. Buy the SD1000 if you are looking for the tiniest camera that you can take everywhere. It takes good shots indoors given its tiny size and fabulous shots outdoors.

    If smallness is not your top priority then you should consider some other Canon cameras which may work better for you (including others from the SD Series).

    A series – The A series is best for you if you’re looking for a low cost camera that gives you a wide range of features, many manual controls and great image quality. Although, the size is bigger than SD series making it a jacket-pocket camera, the advantage is in the styling. It gives you a convenient grip on the side which helps hold the camera steady and results in less “blurry” pictures. The mode selector dial on top helps you zip through selections. The convenience of AA batteries which are available in every corner of the world, no missing out on pictures as your battery was discharged, might be a selling point for those who travel a lot.
    {Update 11/10/07: Canon launched many new A series cameras in August 2007 with Image Stabilization and improved zoom. The 7.1 MP A570 IS with 4X zoom is cheaper than this SD1000. You may want to consider it seriously if you don’t care so much about the slightly large the size and increased weight.}

    The S3 to S5 IS series cameras have a great image sensor, the wonderful image stabilization, a great zoom, and super macro function that can produce never before pictures. The flip out screen helps take shots from angles you’ve never considered before. The videos mode of the S series is also better with stereo sound and a sharp picture. The cameras in this series are also just a little more expensive and pretty bulky. If taking great pictures is all you care about and do not mind carrying a big camera, the S series will be a great choice. It’s the first step towards a real professional camera.

    And finally (drumroll) – the SD series. Small. Cute.

    The SD 1000 slips into your shirt front pocket without making it sag. If you’re wondering about the style, the square “retro” design is boxy but I like it better as it is very compact. It also does not slip out from my fingers as easily as the curved edge ones.

    Since the cameras in SD series are so small some features like different shooting modes are accessible only through the menu which makes changing between them more cumbersome. Sometimes I’ve just preferred to stay on Auto rather than missing the shot while I navigated to the right mode. SD series cameras also have less manual or user defined controls like flash power reduction which I miss. The flash incidentally, can get very strong in lower light or indoor situations and often bleaches out color from people’s faces. If you turn off the flash then you have to use a tripod or have the camera on a flat surface to prevent shaky pictures. I also find that the smallness and lightness of SD series makes my hand shake more than when I’m holding the A series camera with the side grip. I get more fuzzy pics with the SD series than my A series (comparing the models without Image Stabilization) and it’s annoying to see the camera-shake warning each time on the screen I am trying to take a shot. I also get a little more red eye with this series probably because the flash is so close to the lens. On the SD 1000 however, there is a red eye correction feature so you can remove red eye right on the camera. The other improvement over the previous SD series is the automatic face detection which helps reduce the flash glare on faces so pictures come out better.

    Having used many Canons, although I prefer some other models for their pictures, guess which camera travels with me most often. My SD1000. Just because it’s small and fits into my tiny party purse or jeans pocket. Canon recently launched some SD series cameras with Image Stabilization like SD850 IS which is slightly more expensive and a bit bigger and heavier than the SD1000. I’d probably never take it along with me on daily basis and would miss some great photo ops…Many of my friends bought the SD1000 camera after seeing the size of my camera vs. its range of features (and the reasonable price!)

    And what about some other Canon features? (If you’re a regular Canon user skip reading this section, as you already know all this good stuff.):
    – It has an intelligent focusing system with DIGIC III (up from DIGIC II earlier) auto red eye correction and face detection (see above).

    – Goes up to ISO 1600 which improves it’s low light performance. Although beware of camera shake if you turn off flash in low light. In my opinion, Canon has always out-performed all other consumer cameras in outdoor pics. For indoor…

    Super SD1000, April 5, 2007
    This review is from: Canon PowerShot SD1000 7.1MP Digital Elph Camera with 3x Optical Zoom (Silver) (Electronics)

    I did all sorts of research on the SD600. I had made up my mind that the SD600 was the camera for me. The SD1000 is the newer kid on the block and therefore did not have many reviews. And that is why I am here today. The SD1000 is the newest version of the SD600 with a few additions. Those few additions make this camera AWESOME. I love the ISO choices. I was zooming on my local Calif. freeways at around 80mph and decided to take a few shots of passing signs out my passenger window. At the high speed the ISO caught such great detail that I could clearly read the sign later at home. That means that despite the small size the camera filtered out the shake of my hand, the shake from the road, and compensated for the fast movement. The color options are very much the same as other Canon Powershot models. MACRO is so much fun to play with on this camera. The button layout is easy to figure out. Lighting options like White balance are a button push away. With the Face Detection option on you are sure to get a great photo of the family. I have been playing with it none stop for over a week. Get at least a gig for memory. The only downside that I have found, and it is a minor one, is that when the battery warning comes on it means that you have 1-2 more pics and then it shuts off. I ordered another battery ahead of time and it was worth it. The batteries charge in about 30-40mins. This is a great camera. If you are thinking about the SD600 step up and get the SD1000. You will not be disappointed with it.

    Great camera, just chosen as editor’s choice by PC mag as well.

    I have it for about 3 weeks now, couple of family parties later I am really happy with this little one. Fits even in tight jeans pockets, and is quick to take pictures. Face recognition works really well, not flawless, but really amazing. I took about 300 shots so far and they are mostly great quality, some indoor pictures without the flash are a bit blurry, if you don’t hold it steady.

    My 4 year old niece was running around with it and took nice shots just on her own with the automatic setting, pretty amazing. Flash can be a bit strong when to close indoors. It takes fast pictures and is very easy to understand. I still have to read the manual, though. ;-)

    I added a fast 2GB card and even the video quality is pretty good, althought just avi format, not mpg. Sound is great. It even has a speaker when you play the video for review. Outside pictures are outstanding quality. I had some outside self-timer family pictures enlarged at the store to 20-30cm, and the picture quality is awesome. Highly recommended when you want a camera you can carry with you at ALL times!
