Canon Powershot A1000 IS

 

The Canon Powershot A1000 IS is a step above more basic digital cameras, offering image stabilisation, a viewfinder and extra flash controls. It is a bit bigger than pocket sized. For many people this makes it easier to take a good grip and hold the...

Picture quality - value for money

Slow when flash is turned on

The Powershot A1000 IS produces good quality photos in most situations. It has more features than the most basic point and shoot cameras and this gives you the chance to set the camera up for your own requirements.

Canon PowerShot A1000 IS

 

Solid all-round compact camera for novice users.

Sharp shots, minimal chromatic aberration, speedy performance

Noise levels quite high, missing the manual options of past A series units

A good choice for novice photographers, the Canon PowerShot A1000 offers a mixture of high quality 10-megapixel pictures and a beginner-oriented feature set. It does, however, capture quite noisy shots, making night photography somewhat difficult

Canon PowerShot A1000 IS review

 

The Canon PowerShot A1000 IS is not an exciting pocket camera by any means. But if you want the convenience of AA batteries, an optical viewfinder, optical image stabilization, and a low price, this camera has them and takes good photos, too.

Viewfinder; simple operation; inexpensive.

Limited shooting controls; mixed performance.

The entry-level Canon PowerShot A1000 IS is low-cost without being lousy.

Canon Powershot A1000 IS

 

At $199 (list), the PowerShot A1000 IS is the least-expensive 10-megapixel camera Canon has released this year. Despite its low price, it's a great pick for those who prefer to shoot using auto settings exclusively. In Easy Mode, the camera delivers...

Great image quality for the price. Handy "Easy Mode" prevents you from accidentally changing settings. Fast recycle/boot-up times with little shutter lag

Bulky. Viewfinder clips part of your images. High amounts of noise even at low ISO settings

Canon's PowerShot A1000 IS excels at the basicsdead-simple "Easy Mode" shooting, sharp images, and speedy performanceall at a very palatable price.

Canon PowerShot A1000 IS

 

Canon's speedy A1000 IS captures beautiful images and features a foolproof Easy Mode, which actually prevents beginners from adjusting advanced settings.

Great image quality for the price. Handy "Easy Mode" prevents you from accidentally changing settings. Fast recycle/boot-up times with little shutter lag.

Bulky. Viewfinder clips part of your images. High amounts of noise even at low ISO settings.

Canon PowerShot A1000 IS Review

 

The Canon PowerShot A1000 IS digital camera is a new addition to the popular PowerShot range, which has traditionally offered a compelling combination of features and affordable price. The A1000 IS is around 25% smaller than its predecessor, the...

The A1000 IS also suffers from less than stellar image quality in low-light due to obvious noise appearing at ISO 400 and faster, a low-resolution LCD screen, annoyingly slow flash recycle times, and a slow continuous shooting speed. Which leaves us ...

Canon PowerShot A1000 IS Digital Camera - First Shots - The Imaging Resource!

 

The Canon A1000IS has a very similar design and body shape to that of the Canon E1 we cover elsewhere, but the A1000IS has a bit more elegant, two-toned look, evidently designed to appeal to a more mainstream demographic. (The Canon E1 is really aimed...

With a 10-megapixel sensor and a 4x optical zoom lens covering a focal length range from 35 to 140 mm equivalents (a moderate wide angle to moderate telephoto) and a 2.5 inch LCD screen on the back, the A1000IS is solidly in the mainstream of consumer...
