Lately Iâ€™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. Itâ€™s a bit big and I canâ€™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 3â€ LCD screen which is 0.5â€ 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!
