The Bottom Line Small size, excellent image quality, and a solid, though not extensive, feature set make the SD1000 a great choice for a compact camera. If you're looking for a nice, simple ultracompact for use indoors and out, you'll want to strongly consider the Canon PowerShot Elph 300 HS. Canon's SD1100 IS adds optical image stabilization to last year's hit SD1000, while delivering just as impressive image quality. If all you need or want is to point and shoot, the Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS does that well. The Canon PowerShot SX160 IS is a good, inexpensive travel-zoom option for those wanting more control over results or who are just getting into photography and don't want to empty their wallets.
