Canon PowerShot SD1000 / IXUS 70

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital ELPH / IXUS 70 DIGITAL bucks the trend towards the curved designs of the Digital ELPH series we are more familiar with. Instead, in a look back to the original ELPH design, the SD1000 is a clean-lined, fully flat and slim rectangular box that has a classic appeal uniquely its own.

The Canon SD1000 has 7.1 megapixels resolution, 3x optical zoom, a F2.8 maximum aperture, and a shutter speed range of 15-1/1,500 sec. There is a large high-resolution 2.5-in. LCD screen (230K) with tough scratch-resistant coating. The screen is anti-reflective for easy viewing in sunny situations and also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light.

The Canon SD1000 allows you to shoot a clip of 640x480 movie at 30fps until the SD memory card is full (4GB clips at a time or 1 hour of shooting). Auto ISO Shift makes selecting a higher ISO simply a press of a button when the camera shake warning icon displays. The Print/Share button can also be customized to a frequently used function. Face Detection now detects smaller faces.

The Canon Powershot SD1000 Digital ELPH is available in two colour choices: silver and silver with black.
