I also like the zoom in video mode (only digital zoom though) and the auto rotate feature (which you can chose to keep with the photo, or loose on image transfer to PC).
One thing I would like to see improved is the red-eye reduction. It only picks out one set of eyes for the shot (auto mode) and will be whichever face it decides is the main one. The editing software is a bit slow to work with too. The transfer software is fine, but I am sticking with other software for image manipulation as it is too slow (even allowing for the image sizes being big). One good thing about the software though is that it does enable you to rotate a video that you have shot the wrong way round, which I often manage to do for some reason!
Think that's about it!!
An ill conceived camera by a normal well respected company.
This devise enables one to accurately compose and frame a picture in the brightest of direct sunlight. This is an almost impossible with my Pentax Optio 40 camera which does not have an optical viewfinder. The Cannon PowerShot A1000 camera is delightfully easy to use and produces superb accurate high defanition pictures, even down to a surprisingly low light level. Battery life, usung alkaline AA batteries, well exceeded my expectations. The aesthetics, design, build quality and value for money of this camera are first class and I reccommend this delightful camera to all.
Handling isn't a problem, I really think the people who have problems holding it while pressing buttons need to see a doctor because even for big people it is easy to use.
Controls are clearly laid out and easy to use. The screen is bright and clear and good enough for all purposes.
I was really surprised what good value this camera is, given the price I was expecting it to have a few rough edges but it doesn't have any, just great to use. I carry it many places now and it has encouraged me to take many more photos than I have hard disk space for.
I will also add that high ISO noise isn't too bad and at a push can get away with 1600.
So the screen only has 115000 pixels, so what? you only use it to review the shot for which purpose its perfectly adequate.
Glad i bought it
It has the advantage of an eye level optical viewfinder as well as the screen which is very useful when taking pictures in bright sunlight conditions when the screen image is difficult to see.
All menus are easy to follow and it is designed to suit both the complete beginner as well as those with some knowledge of photography.
My only grouse -no manual settings -otherwise I would have rated it 5 stars.
