Look and Feel. But the Canon SD is small and it does fit in your pocket. It is as comfortable as a bar of soap in your hand as you carry it around. But this one is a lot less stable that way, even a bit worse than the SD There are four tiny pegs to stand on but the curved bottom and sides make it a little hard to find the flat spot, and the weight is not at that end of the Canon SD The Canon SD does have some heft, which I like in a small camera.

Canon has retained the optical viewfinder in the SD More about that below. At just 2. The LCD does have , pixels, though. I resorted to a fingernail to home in on the little sucker.

Display and Menu under the main control pad are also stiff and do what they always do on a Canon: change the LCD display options and take you to the main Menu settings. And the arrow positions have their assignments as usual, too. They are faster than pressing the arrow keys, but they are also hard to control. And sometimes they work, sometimes they are disabled. At wide angle, the corners are blurred, but at telephoto they remain nearly as sharp as the center.

With just a 3. Chromatic aberration is strong at wide angle but much lower at telephoto. There is a real manual mode on the Canon SD that lets you set the aperture and the shutter speed yourself.

The LCD displays EV, ISO, Flash mode, and then a row of settings white balance, My Colors, Shutter release mode, image quality, image size, flash compensation, and then a final row with a live histogram, status icons and warnings.

The idea is that this mode will get the fastest capture, perfect for sporting events or other live action scenes. Oddly enough, the LCD displays each captured image for review.

Would you take your eye off the subject and away from the viewfinder to chimp at the shot you just captured? VGA Movie. An Click to download. MOV file.

Movie mode captures mono sound and H. Optical zoom is not supported, though digital zoom is. Shooting video at seems a lot more natural than shooting it at as x requires. And when the day comes that you have a widescreen TV, that video is going to look dated.

The full resolution images consequently load rather slowly. A bleeding nose and some luminance noise in the foliage [ pct. I shifted focus modes a lot, moving from Normal to Macro and back again.

Throughout my shooting experience, the Canon SD was a reliable and faithful companion. Evaluating the images, though, was another experience. I was surprised to see how much lens flare intruded. You might expect a little fringing in the corners at wide angle, but how do you explain the wheel covers on the red car? I was also disappointed to see fringing on the edges of the orange rose, although I appreciated how the Detail reveals a crane fly on the ornate window [ pct.

Perhaps the best shot was the ornate window. The Canon SD not only held the highlights very well but the detail from the And yet, the image of the bolt in the brick, one of my favorite compositions in the gallery, falls apart when viewed at full resolution.
