Camera of the Week: Canon PowerShot SD1000

April 25, 2008

This uber-small point-and-shoot camera, the Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital ELPH, is currently the best-selling digital camera on Amazon.com. I bought one for myself and I have to say I’m really happy with it. It’s small enough to tuck away in your shirt pocket or clutch bag between shots. The SD1000 features Canon’s award-winning face detection technology with automatic color-corrected exposures, even in low-light conditions. It has a 7.1-megapixel image sensor, a 2.5-inch high-resolution LCD screen, automatic red-eye correction, and a pets and children mode for working with less-than-cooperative subjects. And it retails for under $250.

DCresource.com said the SD1000 “Easily earns my recommendation”. Imaging-resource.com called the SD1000 “Wonderfully simple and produces great images.” Trustedreviews.com said the “Value for money is surprisingly good…” and Digitalcamerareview.com called the SD1000 “An excellent choice…”.

For all these reasons, we’ve chosen the Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital ELPH as our Photobird Camera of the Week. If you’re in the market for a new tiny point-and-shoot digicam, this one should certainly be near the top of your list.

Wine and Chocolate

April 25, 2008

A good wine and chocolate pairing can bring out the rich flavonoids of each in a distinctive blend of bitter and sweet that will set your taste buds soaring. Try your favorite Napa winery’s California Zinfandel with some squares of Ghirardelli or Scharffen-Berger dark chocolate and you’ll know exactly what I mean.

Now it can finally be said that the same rules of pairing can also apply to the world of digital photography: Amazon.com is currently running a promotion for the Fujifilm FinePix Z5fd, a 6.3-megapixel tiny point-and-shoot digicam on sale for under $130 with free Super Saver Shipping. This camera is available in both Chocolate Brown and Wine Red. I can’t help but think that the two together would make for a perfect “his and her” pairing for any couple’s photographic expedition across California wine country.
