Camera of the Week: Canon PowerShot SD1000


This uber-small point-and-shoot camera, the Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital ELPH, is currently the best-selling digital camera on 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. said the SD1000 “Easily earns my recommendation”. called the SD1000 “Wonderfully simple and produces great images.” said the “Value for money is surprisingly good…” and 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.
