The Canon PowerShot SD100 7.1MP Digital Elph

Everyone needs a good point-and-shoot digital camera.  And Canon makes some of the best.  Our favorite is the Canon PowerShot SD1000 7.1 megapixel Digital Elph.  Like most Canon Powershot cameras, it comes in a sleek, silver aluminum body with a retractable automatic lens.  7.1 megapixels delivers amazing resolution and picture clarity (and you’ll be able to print out your photos at larger than 5×7″ and still have them look great — in fact, you can print out photo-quality 15×20″ prints if you so desire).

Controls are easy to use, with a slider switch allowing you to select between Camera, Video, and Review functions.  The Canon PowerShot SD1000 comes with a 3x optical zoom, 4x digital zoom, optical viewfinder as well as the 2.5″ LCD screen, face detection, built-in redeye reduction (in playback mode), DIGIC III image processor (for sharp in-camera image auto-manipulation, including color tuning), 17 shooting modes, and variable ISO settings.  You also get a battery, battery charger, a wrist strap, software CD for both IBM and Mac, and USB and component cables, for hooking the camera up to your computer or TV.

The Canon PowerShot SD1000 has a focusing range of:
Normal: 1.0 feet/30 centimeters to infinity; macro: 1.2 inches to 1.6 feet/3 to 50 centimeters (wide), 1.0 to 1.6 feet/30 to 50 centimeters (telephoto); digital macro: 1.2 to 3.9 inches/3 to 10 centimeters (wide).

A lens focal length of 5.8-17.4mm, f2.8-4.9 (35mm film equivalent: 35-105mm).  And a shutter speed of 15 seconds to 1/1500 second.

These are pretty much all the features you could want in a point-and-shoot camera.  We’ve been using this camera for almost 3 years now and absolutely love it.

Overall Rating: 9/10

Recommendation: Buy it
