Canon PowerShot E1 digital camera

 

Canon tells us that the PowerShot E1 is "designed by women for women". But besides a selection of bubblegum colours, is this a pocket snapper worthy of consideration? So it all sounds really good. Well yes, it is a very competent little camera. There...

Easy to use, feels good in the hand, face detection, Easy shooting mode does what it says, price

Slightly bulky, some focal point issues, miserly SD card supplied

So it all sounds really good. Well yes, it is a very competent little camera. There is a compromise in terms of size, as this won’t slip into your pocket as easily as, say, one of the IXUS models, but then you have to glance at the price. The E1 was...

Canon PowerShot E1

 

Designed by women for women, will the new PowerShot compact really ‘meet the needs of every girl' as Canon claims?

The colours are not going to appeal to everyone, but it is surprisingly nice to handle and the image quality is good for the price

Canon - PowerShot E1

 

There's no denying that the Canon PowerShot E1 is pleasing to look at and to hold. Available in three different pastel colours - white, blue and pink - it has feminine appeal: it's curvaceous, fairly lightweight ...

The Canon PowerShot E1 is lovely point and click camera. Image quality could be a little better but for the price you can bag yourself a great looking, easy to control compact. The design is superb: it's sturdy yet lightweight enough without feeling...

Canon PowerShot E1

 

An ideal first camera.

Good feature set for the asking price, pleasingly old school design, decent image quality

Low-grade LCD screen, might be too chunky for funky ‘yoof’ types

The Canon PowerShot E1 is an impressive entry-level compact camera aimed primarily at kids and skint teens. It offers a nice array of features for the asking price and takes adequate photos to boot. All in all, a solid offering.

Canon PowerShot E1 Review

 

The Canon PowerShot E1 is the newest addition to the company's popular PowerShot line, within which it represents the starting point of an entirely new sub-range, allegedly "designed by women for women". The main point of differentiation is a...

Inside, the Canon E1 is essentially a PowerShot A580 with two million extra if largely superfluous pixels, slightly improved macro and movie modes, plus infinity focus and image stabilisation thrown in. So if you like the quirky design and colours,...

Canon PowerShot E1

 

The Canon PowerShot E1 marks a completely new concept for Canon cameras, very much designed for a young, female aesthetic. The Canon E1 is marked by very curvy, rounded contours, and is available in three pastel colors, namely a blue, pearl white, and...

The Canon E1 derives its power from a pair of AA batteries (so common that you need never worry about running out of power while traveling), and can capture up to 220 shots on a fresh set of alkaline batteries with the LCD on (CIPA method)

Canon PowerShot E1 Review

 

To generalize a bit about corporate personalities, Canon isn't known for being very adventurous. It's become a widely shared aphorism in the imaging world that Canon takes the conservative approach, building cameras that are, for the most part,...

Unconventional design, Sharp, clean images at low ISOs, Reasonably quick performance, One of the few compacts with an optical viewfinder

Unconventional design, Priced more than the functionally identical A1000, Things get noisy above ISO 200, Alkaline AAs won't last long
