After returning a Canon SD870, I got this because my Fiancé had one and was pleased with it (as was I when I borrowed it). It's really small but still easy enough to use, however we are BOTH returning ours if we can... If they didn't constantly have "issues" that prevented them from being useful, they'd be absolutely stellar cameras for the money. Problems: Hers stopped focusing when zoomed in. As in, you'd press the shutter button halfway, and it would beep once, indicating that it could ...

Has some problems, read this before decide. The quality of images is good, all depends on settings you tune your camera, and you have a lot of settings to tune, if needed. It's small, and tough enough - i keep it in my pocket every day, don't feel the weight, and have dropped it multiple times in sand or pavement, nothing broken. Amongst cool features i must mention: - long shutter time for night shots, - time lapse function, this one is amazing, - super video quality for small cam like this, ...

The SD100 is a small, solidly built camera. It's a nice camera all around although it has quite a tendency to blow the highlights in pictures and colors are over saturated in the default mode. The pictures are not sharp out of the camera but a little sharpening on the computer will really help. The auto white balance is not very accurate but will do the job in most lighting situations. The menu system and controls are a little bit confusing at first but you get used to them pretty quickly. Pr ...

I borrowed one for a few weeks to compare to my SD750. It's 50 bucks cheaper (it was $150 US), smaller, has an optical viewfinder and takes the same nice pictures. It's not going to be your do-all versatile camera. It's an Elph, Stick it in your pocket or purse and take it out whenever. Most of the time, it won't let you down. Works best in good light. OK for flash for small groups.

I've tried a lot of compacts and this one I will keep. It's just simply a great point and shoot. Images are sometimes a bit soft but they are easily sharpened (with in my case a free tool like Picasa). I really don't miss IS. I've had the f31fd and I almost never used it's IS. Colours are nice and enough to choose from. There is just enough manual control. I wouldn't need more from a point and shoot. If I want more control and better image quality I'll buy a dslr. With the price of this one ...

GREAT CAMERA. For a point and shoot camera at this price you just can't beat it. I owned a large magazine and advertising agency so I know quality photos and things of the sort. I have had dozens over camera inexpensive to the ridiculous and this this is just amazing. The photoquality just on automatic mode stuns the professionals I work with over and over. I use it to take photos of my 21 months old son and have taken over 25,000 photos with it. I just throw it in my pocket and have ...

Returned the camera after 2 days. Amoung it's main competitors, this camera has poor image quality. Bought it for my wife as she wanted a new compact camera. She is no where near the camera snoob I am and she did not like the camera. Every shot was soft and searched forever to focus. ISO quality was bad as well, gain was evident even in lower ISOs. If you can find this camera in low $100 then it may be a decent deal. However, peaking at the $200 - walk away. I think I may try the A720. Pr ...

I bought this camera b4 xmas.... very happy with the picture quality... I use it as my second camera and replace my old Canon sd230. This camera also fit in my old waterproof case (DicAPac).... I use it for my Ski trip and took some wonderful picture. Problems: picture works fine on my Wii photo channel but Canon change the Codec format therefore I cannot play video on my Wii from this camera.... Canon..why change the format ...! Otherwise this camera is perfect for my use.

I have owned Canon, Sony, and Panasonic ultra-compact cameras, and generally speaking, the image quality on the Canon's is better. This is a perfect compliment to my Sony DSC-V3 prosumer digicam. Frankly I am wowed by the featured. When the SD1000 came out it was priced at $299.99. I recently purchased it at Best Buy for $149.99...one of the greatest photo bargains ever. It's easy to get seduced by 3-inch screens and Image Stabilization...but shot after shot, this camera takes tack-sharp ...
