This camera takes great pictures.

Pros Easy to Use, Excellent Picture Quality, Lightweight
Cons Bad in Low Light, Charge port cover cheap
Recommended it? Yes

This is a great little camera.  It takes fantastic pictures and the shutter speed is pretty fast.  The only problems I have with it is the flash doesn't reach far enough in low light and the cover to the charge port is cheaply made and broke off.  Other than that, this camera is...

I have had this camera for 2 or 3 years. It still works as good as the day I bought it. It takes great pictures in low light.

Pros Easy to Use, Lightweight, Compact
Cons Bad in Low Light, Shutter Lag
Recommended it? Yes

This is a good camera for when you don't want to carry around a big DSLR.  The pictures form the SD1000 come out clearer than other point and shoot pictures I've seen.  The video feature on this is great too.  The reason I give it 4 stars is because it doesn't do well in low light...

Pros Compact, Lightweight
Cons poor design, Poor image quality, Bad Picture Quality

I bought this camera mainly due to its size and weight. I was hoping this will become my best hiking camera - for all these cases where you don't want to carry weight but you cannot afford to miss capturing the views.

I did take it on some hiking trips and so far... Read full review »

Canon's A1000 IS is nothing special.

Pros Easy to use, relatively affordable.
Cons Not all that exciting or impressive, silly design of picture viewing/taking button.
Recommended it? No

I've had somewhat of a rough history with my Canon cameras, typically losing/breaking them on an annual or biannual basis.  Several of these misfortunes have been my fault, while others I have chalked up to receiving a "lemon" camera.  Fortunately, the price for an entry level point-and-shoot keeps...

Cons Batteries run out after every 200 pics or so (rechargeables may last longer), no case

The last camera I had was a Kodak Advantix, which I really liked. When it came time to replace it, I really didn't know what to look for.

This Canon is unbelievably easy to use, and it takes the most amazing pictures with true-life color. I use it for school activities, family gatherings,... Read full review »

The day I bought this little gem I was going to purchase the Canon A590, which was on a clearance and the store ran out of them. I then looked the A-1000 IS over and the more I looked the more I  liked, so I got it. This camera has alot of features for the price, including an "easy" setting for... Read full review »

I bought the SD 1000 because I wanted a small point and shoot with good resolution, and enough versatility to meet various needs when carrying it around.  I got it all in this camera.

The body is literally smaller than a cigarette pack, has no protruding buttons or lens, and it fits neatly... Read full review »

Cons Too many glitches, Lens errors, and poor customer service

I have always loved the durability of Canon products. Most of their cameras, at first glance, look sturdy and trustworthy, mostly because of the fact that they are not made with shoddy plastic casing. Most Canon cameras can withstand elements of the earth, you'd assume. However, nothing could... Read full review »
