Product Description

Color: Silver

From the Manufacturer

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.

PowerShot SD1000 Highlights

Canon PowerShot SD1000 Features and Highlights
1x zoom/3x zoom
Slim, stylish 7.1-megapixel digital Elph with 3x optical zoom Great design is just part of the PowerShot SD1000 Digital Elph story. Inside is all the power you need to capture the moments of your life - beautifully.

The 7.1-megapixel CCD records a wealth of detail - enough to let you enlarge and crop at will. Images are rich and sharp with lifelike depth. The camera's Genuine Canon 3x optical zoom not only gets you in close, but performs with all the clarity and brilliance you'd expect from the world's leader in advanced optics technology.

DIGIC III image processor with improved Face Detection and Red-eye Correction With DIGIC III, you get images of superior quality, the camera functions at top efficiency and battery life is significantly enhanced. What's more, DIGIC III enables Canon's newly improved Face Detection Technology and Red-eye Correction to give you better, more true-to-life people shots. Simply press the Shutter Button halfway down, and the PowerShot SD1000 Digital Elph automatically pinpoints the faces in the scene and chooses the ideal focus point. To keep every face looking bright and natural - without scary red eyes - the camera controls exposure settings and flash, so every shot is just what you were shooting for.

Face Detection AF/AE finds multiple faces in the frame and sets the most suitable focus point, when the shutter button is pressed halfway. And an additional feature, Face Detection FE adjusts the flash, based on a person's face on the screen. Exposure and flash are controlled to ensure proper illumination of both the faces and the overall scene, eliminating the common problem of darkened or overexposed faces.
Canon PowerShot SD1000 Features and Highlights
Face Detection in action

Red-eye Correction detects and automatically corrects red-eye during playback for both regular and flash photography. In unusual cases where red-eye is not automatically detected, it can easily be corrected manually during playback mode from the LCD screen.

iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the fast DIGIC III Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.

Canon PowerShot SD1000 Features and Highlights
Vivid, high-resolution 2.5-inch PureColor LCD The camera's 2.5-inch LCD screen gives you the big picture, whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your images. This extra-durable, high-resolution screen with tough scratch-resistant coating on the anti-reflective, PureColor LCD screen offers a crisp, clear picture to make shooting, playback and using the camera's menu functions especially convenient. Clear and bright, it also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light.

ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto to reduce image blur and expand low-light shooting capability The PowerShot SD1000 Digital Elph features new ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto settings that reduce the effects of camera shake and sharpen subjects in low-light situations, giving you greater flexibility for shooting.

Five movie modes including 30 fps VGA, Time Lapse and Fast Frame Rate With a highly flexible movie mode, you can create the movie that's perfect for any application. Select from VGA (640 x 480 pixels) and QVGA (320 x 240 pixels), with frame rates of 30 fps and 15 fps for recording up to 1 hour or 4GB. Also choose from Fast Frame Rate (QVGA; 320 x 240 pixels) recording at 60 fps for up to 1 minute, Compact Movie Mode (QQVGA; 160 x 120 pixels) recording at 15 fps for up to 3 minutes, and Time Lapse (640 x 480) recording at 1 or 2 sec. intervals. The PowerShot SD1000 Digital Elph supports the USB 2.0 Hi-Speed standard, so you'll enjoy the fastest possible data transfer speeds when using a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed compatible computer.

Print/Share button for easy direct printing and downloading The PowerShot SD1000 Digital Elph's Print/Share button makes direct printing easier than ever. Simply connect the SD1000 Digital Elph to a Canon CP, Selphy or Pixma photo printer or any PictBridge compatible photo printer, press the lighted Print/Share button and print! Also use the Print/Share button to transfer images to a computer (Windows and Macintosh).

Print your own ID photos in 28 different sizes or use the Movie Print function to output multiple stills from a recorded movie on a single sheet with a Canon Selphy compact photo printer.

Direct photo printers For desktop large-format printing, try one of the direct photo printers that allow you to print without a computer in one of two ways: plug your compatible PowerShot camera into the direct photo printer using the supplied USB interface cable, or simply insert a memory card into the supplied adapter. You can also connect the printer to your computer for more options. Print high-resolution, borderless images as postcards or 8.5 x 11-inch sheets within minutes.

Compact photo printers Compact photo printers let you produce versatile, fun 4 x 6-inch postcards, 4 x 8-inch wide greeting cards or credit-card size prints in just two easy steps: connect and press print. Control the printer right from your camera's LCD screen. You get durable, dye-sublimated prints quickly with or without borders. Assorted paper types let you create mini or credit card size labels. You can even take select compact photo printers to a party or an outdoor picnic using an optional rechargeable battery.

Color Name: Silver Verified Purchase
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.

Color Name: Silver
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!

Color Name: Silver
I really wanted to like this camera. I've been a fan and user of Canon's Digital Elph cameras since I got my first one (S110). Since then I've upgraded a couple of times, first to an S500 then to an SD450 and I was looking forward to the SD1000; more megapixels, higher ISO, the old retro look, and the new DIGIC III. At first, having received the camera, I was very pleased. The look and feel of the camera is great, the form factor is great, but reviewing some of the first actual shots out of the camera was very disappointing. They were all very grainy. None had the sharpness of the pictures from my old Digital Elph cameras, even the ones shot at ISO80. I proceeded taking more pictures trying all kind of different settings, not wanting to accept that Canon possibly had taken a step backwards with this newest version of the Elph camera, but at the end of the day, I had to admit it. This camera was not living up to my expectations, and I decided to return. It is possible, and I hope, that I got a bad lens or camera, but I am not so sure as I have seen other reviews on the Internet that describes my experience with the SD1000 model.
