5 megapixels | 2.5 screen | 35 – 105 mm (3×)

I am with this gadget for 7 months, Strictly OK. Dim light pictures are very poor. Well in good lighting it is great,but many of us use P&S for instant shoots, so low ISO is a big minus Problems: I got to use a DMX Fx9(panasonic) & Fuji F10& F11 about the same time,well they are a better bargain for the same price,especially the F 10 is great for dim light shooting. I feel canon cameras are highly OVER RATED,though they are still better than the sony :) No battery or usage issues till date. O ...

While this is my first digital camera I think that overall it is a good one and fun to use. My only question concerns battery life, which I have seen commented on as being poor but which I would consider ridiculous. I seem to get only 12 to 18 shots before it tells me to change the battery. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? The printed directions claim up to 300 shots before recharging. I am using the original Canon battery and one additional one that I bought with the camera. ...

I spent yesterday afternoon at Best Buy trying to decide what Sony DC I should purchase, having just sold my last one on eBay. I have had 6 Sony's over the past 10 years and have had a favorable relationship with Sony - except with their latest decision to start changing the size and functionality of their expensive memory sticks. During my quest at BB for the perfect Sony - probably the M1 or M2 , the Canon rep who was there for the weekend asked if she could answer any quesions and show me ...

Tirei cerca de 400 fotos e recomendo esta camera. Gostosa de utilizar e carregar e seu visor de 6,35 cm é simplesmente fabuloso. Lixo com a minha Sony P73. Problems: Ruído quando em Izo 400. Falta de estabilizador.

I got the SD450 because I wanted a pocket size camera to complement my 3-year old G2. So far I'm quite impressed. Start-up and shutter lag times are very short. Image quality is very good. Exposure adjustments (snow, etc.) are easy to use and did the job (I usually underexpose 2/3 stop on the G2). My only real issue is low light capability and (what I consider) poor flash performance - very short range. It's something I'm going to have to work on (change ISO; exposure compensation; etc.). Ove ...

Just purchased the SD450 a couple of weeks ago. I would recommend this camera in its category. Picture quality in general is pretty good ( not the best in low light conditions with use of flash). Color saturation, as usual with Canon, is very good. Sharpness of photos is also above average. I like the features and the menu system. Easy to get to the most important options such as ISO , Flash, Auto/Manual and more. Llike the way software is designed too, gives a "high quality" look. More ...

I bought the iXus55/SD450 as a p&s to replace the older SD200. First impressions were that it had the excellent build quality, ease of use and fast response one expects from the DIGICII processor & the iXus range. The LCD screen is larger but gets noisy in low light and is obviously not a high-resolution screen. I much prefer the LCD on the Panasonic FX-series. The 2.5" LCD does seem stronger than the older model iXus but again, doesn't compare to the protection (hard, enclosed cover) on the ...
