Canon PowerShot SD750 Digital ELPH

Lately I’ve wanted to purchase a new digital camera, one small enough to easily fit into my pocket. Bringing a dSLR (such as the Canon EOS 350D) out to a club or a bar is just not much fun. It’s a bit big and I can’t easily put it away.

That led me to look at the ELPH series of Canon digital cameras. I was not looking to spend very much money but I wanted something that had some functionality and could take a decent picture. Looking at either the SD1000 or the SD750 I decided on the SD750.

Why I choose the SD750.

I choose the Canon SD750 because of its ultra-compact design and boasted a 3” LCD screen which is 0.5” larger than the SD1000. Other than the LCD screen size both cameras have the same specifications and features; 3x optical zoom, ultra-compact design, DIGIC III processor, 7.1 megapixels etc. Even though the SD750 is priced at roughly $50 more than the SD1000, I deemed this a decent price to pay for a larger LCD screen.

The image above was taken at dusk and turned out exceptionally well. I guess this is the DIGIC III processor with its new Face Detection (using AE priority) capabilities which I am amazed at how it was able to not over-expose me, or under-expose the setting sun in the background. Good job Canon!

Next thing for me to look at is the Time Lapse function of the DIGIC III processor!

    I just got the SD870 on the weekend. I’m still trying to figure out why my photos look more yellow on the LCD screen when I’m in Manual Mode. It doesn’t do the same thing in Automatic mode. I haven’t had a chance to see what the photos look like on my monitor, so I hope everything turns out okay :-/

    I’m in the market for a new camera. How long do the batteries last in that thing?

    It’s a Lithium batter and I’ve taken over 400 photos since it’s first charge so far and I haven’t had to charge it yet. That’s also showing the pictures via the LCD screen to people as well as playing back movies on it. I last charged it 5 days ago at least.

    Battery (lithium ion) is great and lasts a long time between chargers. As for photo count, greater than 600 I would say per charge.
