Canon PowerShot SD10 Review

Review Date: Dec 22, 2003

Canon PowerShot SD10 Digital ELPH

Category: Point-and-Shoot

Canon has shrunk the Digital ELPH series into an ultra thin, ultra compact design in the PowerShot SD10 Digital ELPH (aka Digital IXUS i in the UK), accomplishing this feat partly by opting to use the smaller SecureDigital (SD) storage media card instead of the larger CompactFlash. The PowerShot SD10 makes a strong fashion statement with its availability in 4 different colours. Canon is targeting the fashion-conscious "couture" crowd who desires the latest "must-have" accesory.

The PowerShot SD10 has 4.0 megapixels resolution, a F2.8 maximum aperture and a shutter speed range of 15-1/1,500 sec. There is no optical zoom, but a 5.7 x digital zoom, and super macro mode at 3 cm (1.2 in.). Canon has equipped the PowerShot SD10 (and all its newer digital cameras, videocams and printers) with the PictBridge industry standard so that you can just plug the SD10 to a PictBridge-compatible printer and print direct without having to go through a computer first.

You can shoot up to 3 minutes of 320x240 movie, set the White Balance and exposure compensation manually, take macro shots as close as 3 cm (1.2 in.), and create panoramas with Stitch Assist to help you line up the images just right.

We like the Canon PowerShot SD10 Digital ELPH because of its compact JeansPocket™ Certified size, 4.0 megapixels resolution, autofocus-assist lamp, and ease of use -- which makes it a perfect point-and-shooter digital camera to take anywhere. Bring also with you the battery-powered CP-300 card photo printer and you have your own mini lab to print "instant" 4x6 in. pictures to delight family and friends alike. [Check out the Canon Card Photo Printer CP-200 for easy 4x6 in. printing direct from the SD10.]
