Product Description

From Canon: Canon looked to the very first ELPH for inspiration when designing the PowerShot SD1000 Digital ELPH, and came up with a quintessential iteration of the icon: slim, clean-lined and fully flat. Inside, the SD1000 Digital ELPH looks only to the future: 7.1 megapixels, a 3x optical zoom and advanced DIGIC III ensure top-quality images, while focus is fast and sharp and red-eye is automatically corrected. The large and more colorful LCD screen now has a tough, anti-reflective coating that makes it as durable as it is beautiful.

Great camera for the price (and size)
I have been using Canon products in my classroom for the past two years and have since become a convert. I chose the SD1000 because of its compact size and its low MSRP. At 7.1MP, the images are plenty large enough to crop and manipulate while still being small enough to not overwhelm my hard drive. Its small size has lent itself to many adventures with it. I have a Lowe Alpine case for it that I typically attach to the hip belt of my pack or to my climbing harness. I've taken the camera to the top of multipitches and dropped in in the snow in the White Mountains. And it keeps on ticking. The battery life is phenomenal and lasts several days (except for in very cold temperatures, which is typical). I love the macro setting as well as the widescreen and pano. I have enjoyed the camera enough that I actually bought the same one for my techno-phobe mother and she loves it as well.
