After Canon released the 5-Megapixel Canon PowerShot SD450, I decided to find out how much different it is from the Canon SD400. On the surface, it seemed that the only difference would be the larger LCD screen (2.5-inch vs. s-inch on SD400). I have b...
If your definition of perfection is a pocket sized digital camera thats equally handy at taking pictures and shooting video, then stop searching and buy Canons new PowerShot SD450 Digital Elph.The SD450 lives up to the Elph name; its about the same...
Good Tiny yet user-friendly design, Excellent still image and video quality, Good battery life...
Bad No Shutter Priority mode...
hy does a camera have to be thin? It doesn't, but if you like the idea of having a real camera in your pocket instead of just a phone that takes fuzzy snapshots, size becomes an issue and it's certainly more comfortable to carry something small, light and slender instead of a little brick...
With the glut of ultra-compact 5 Megapixel cameras around, the Canon Ixus 55 face stiff competition, and so, like its brothers and sisters, has to be packed with features for both the novice and intermediate photographer. Action on the big screenThe fi...
As with the 7.2-megapixel PowerShot SD550 Digital Elph, our current Editors Choice in the high-end ultracompact category, theres a lot to like about the 5MP PowerShot SD450 Digital Elph ($399.95 list). In fact, both have many of the same features...
Good Quick performance and excellent image quality. Unique "My Color" feature. Sleek and very portable.
Bad A little tricky to operate with larger hands. Menus could be improved. No manual settings.
Bottom line The 5MP Canon PowerShot SD450 Digital Elph takes mighty fine shots for a mighty small camera, but it might be a little undersized for those with big paws...
The Canon Digital IXUS 55 is an ultra-compact 5 megapixel digital camera with a stylish and durable stainless steel body. It offers a 3x optical zoom lens which is equivalent to 35-105mm on a 35mm camera. The IXUS 55 (also known as the Powershot SD45...
Bottom line The Canon Digital IXUS 55 is a a good-looking and incredibly well-made point-and-shoot digital camera that thankfully doesnt sacrifice substance for style. The IXUS 55 is a tiny camera that both looks great and works well, with a number of innovative...
This is one of the smallest ultra-compact digital cameras available. Image softness is above average even for its size, but noise is similar to other ultra-compact cameras. Otherwise, colors are fairly accurate and it captures a good amount of detail...
The Canon PowerShot SD450 is a pretty nice camera with some excellent features that many other competing cameras do not have. First off, its got 5-megapixels and it shows! The body of the SD450 is about 3.5 x 2 x 1 inches and it has a curvy metal...
Announced in August 2005, the SD450 (which goes by the name of Digital IXUS 55 in Europe) is the latest in a long line of ultra-compact ELPH or IXUS cameras stretching back to early 2000 (and a lot farther back than that in the film camera world)...
Good Very good resolution, Incredibly slim, compact design, Beautifully built and all-metal construction, Excellent color and white balance in most situations, Manual (custom) white balance, Good exposure and generally very reliable focus (using single-point A...
Bad Fairly strong purple fringing, Some dynamic range issues (common to cameras using this sensor), Some edge and corner softness at wide angle/max aperture, Battery life when using LCD, No exposure information in record mode except when camera shake is an is...
Bottom line In an ideal world buying an ultra compact camera would not involve any compromise at all. But this aint a perfect world, and if you want a camera you really can carry with you anytime, anywhere then you have to accept there will be some trade-off in...
