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