Product Description

The sleek design of the PowerShot A1000 IS is as refreshing as a breath of fresh air. Better still, its high-end features make everything simple: there's the 10.0-megapixel resolution and powerful 4x Optical Zoom lens with Optical Image Stabilizer for sharpness along the full zoom range. A DIGIC III Image Processor with Canon Face Detection automatically lets every face stand out. Easy Mode and Easy Playback make this camera a marvel of simplicity. With a bright 2.5-inch LCD, it's available in four two-toned colors.

Strengths:    Picture quality.
Optical Viewfinder great in bright sun (few cameras have them any more).
Uses inexpensive AA batteries (Rechargeable recommended, but OK with alkalines in a pinch).
4X zoom gives a little extra "reach".
10MP sensor allows some pretty severe cropping, or very large prints.
Good back-up to a DSLR (or when you don't want to carry such a large camera).

Weaknesses:    Plastic construction feels pretty cheap.
Battery/SD card door latch broke-- currently being held tight by a shoe-lace (that's all I had when it broke... it works!!. Not worth getting repaired).
No way to attach filters
Lens does not cover wide angle.

Bottom Line:   
Very good results from an inexpensive, easy-to-use camera. Fairly versatile, but no manual controls. "Scene" modes adequately handle most situations. Build quality just so-so.
