So far so good, Do NOT use this camera in "AUTO" mode!
by Michael_Brown on August 28, 2011
Pros: + 10x optical zoom takes really nice pictures and the zoom is usually more than enough
+ There are a ton of photo-settings on the camera
+ This camera CAN take pretty good pictures in low-light conditions
+ Macro Mode is great
+ Very good pictures
Cons: - In the AUTO mode, literally takes at least 5 seconds or more for it to decide how and when it wants to take a picture

Summary: Let me preface this review by saying I have a Canon SD750 which both my fiancee and I LOVE and have owned for about 4 years now. However it has been dropped many times and doesn't quite work the same anymore, although in proper lighting it still takes amazing pictures. Having said all that, there are a few flaws that really nagged me about the camera which the SD4500is fixed.*** P.S. If you will buy this camera I suggest you have compare prices before you decide at: www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B003ZSHNF4?ie=UTF8&ref_=dp_olp_new&condition=new#?ie=UTF8&tag=***************&********=ur2&camp=1789&creative=390957
Now for a few thoughts on the Canon SD4500is.
1) Do not, I repeat, DO NOT, use this camera in the AUTO mode. I'm not quite sure how they ever let this camera get released with the AUTO setting the way it is. It literally takes at least 5 seconds or more for it to decide how and when it wants to take a picture. And when it does the pictures come out terrible. When I first opened up the box and took out the camera, I tried taking a picture of my Christmas tree from about 4-6 feet away. Well the camera came out of the box with the AUTO mode on. I pressed the button to take the picture... and waited... and waited... the camera tried its hardest to focus, then the picture went all blurry until it was just huge blobs of lights and tree, and then it finally snapped the picture. The picture was just horrible. I later realized that for some reason the camera was trying to take the picture in the "macro" mode, which doesn't make sense at all and is probably the reason the picture was big blobs of lights. Anyway to make a long story short, when shooting almost anything, the AUTO mode seems to take way too long and screws up most of the time anyway. Don't use it, just use the middle mode, the picture of the camera on the switch on the top of the camera. The regular mode works perfectly fine.
2) I read a few complaints about the start-up time for this camera on the reviews here. Let me compare some times for you. I did a quick search online and found an online stopwatch and timed the startup times for my old SD750 and for the new SD4500is. The startup time for the SD750 was 1.5 seconds. The startup time for the new SD4500is was 3 seconds. So its about double the time. It seems fairly quick when you are starting it up but the fact is its about double the time than my old camera. Right now I don't see it as such a big deal but maybe when I miss that once in a lifetime shot b/c of the extra 1.5 seconds I'll think differently about it.
3) One of my problems with my old SD750 was the lack of Image Stabilization (it usually took great pictures anyway but it would have helped in several different picture-taking scenarios). Well the new SD4500is has it and it seems to work great, all the pictures in well-lit areas or with flash come out very clear. Big plus for the new SD4500is.
4) Now for the money feature, the feature you SHOULD be buying this camera for or else you might as well just get the $100 Canon powershot. The 10x optical zoom. Yes, its real, and its fantastic. The 10x optical zoom takes really nice pictures and the zoom is usually more than enough. My old SD750 only had a 3x optical zoom I believe. So basically anything after that it was hit-or-miss on whether it'd take a clear picture or not. With the SD4500is you don't have to worry about that, with the zoom your pictures will be clear.
5) Size DOES matter. Our old SD750 was nice and small, lightweight, you could fit it in your pocket and just go. When I ordered the new SD4500is, I was afraid it'd be a lot bigger. Well it is bigger, but not as much as you'd think. Its still small enough to fit in your pocket. I was pleasantly surprised, to the eye it almost looks to be about the same size as our old camera. The punch this camera gives you for its size is simply amazing. Pleasantly surprised in this area.
6) Look and Feel. The new SD4500is does feel a bit heavier than the older SD750, but its not going to be a problem. It sort of makes it feel more solid and expensive if anything. The SD4500is looks great. We bought the brown color because it was the cheapest ($270 on amazon at the time), and my fiancee was worried it would look stupid. But when it came we were both pleasantly surprised, it looks better than it does in the picture in the product description. Its a nice deep brown color, the back is lighter. The whole camera looks nice though. The back of the camera has what looks like a 3" widescreen lcd display.
7) Button layout. The layout is similar to my old SD750 but with some improvements. The separate video record button is a welcome addition. The button for just viewing your pictures is also great (I've seen other cameras where you have to turn a dial just to see your pictures and it gets really annoying). I also love having the option to either press the dial button or turn/rotate the button. Pressing the button can get annoying after a while, especially when viewing photos you've just taken. Turning the dial is much easier and intuitive.
8) Features. There are a ton of photo-settings on the camera, you will probably use less than 10% of them. One feature I love is the ability to control the flash. With my old SD750, I could only choose for it to be on AUTO or OFF. It was so annoying not to be able to put it to ON. Well with the new 4500is you can choose AUTO, ON, OFF, or some other low-light option.
9) Low-light Pictures. I've seen some reviews on here and blast the low-light pictures this camera takes. I tried the low-light picture-taking setting (with the flash OFF) and the reviews are correct, the photos come out grainy and not quite in focus. Or maybe just grainy. Either way they're not that good. Forget using the low-light option. Either take the picture like normal with the flash off (which come out a little better), or turn the adjustable ISO to 800 or 1600. This lets a bit more light in but is quick enough to take a nice picture. The pictures don't come out perfect but they seem to be about the same or better than my old SD750 would take with the flash off in low-light conditions (with the "high iso" setting). About as good as you can get from a pocket-digital camera in my opinion. If you put the ISO any higher you will need a tripod or set it on a table or something to get a clear picture. So in summation this camera CAN take pretty good pictures in low-light conditions, you just can't use the low-light setting because then the pictures come out terrible.
Let me add this. With the flash ON in low-light conditions, it takes great pictures. Flash is amazing.
10) Macro Mode is great. Just like with my older Canon, this camera takes great pictures of things really really close up.
11) Battery meter. Even though I've heard the battery life is pretty bad (I haven't drained it fully yet as I keep stopping for the night and throw it back on the charger), this camera has a BATTERY LIFE METER!!! Thank god! My old Canon sd750 did NOT have this feature and it drove me crazy. With my old camera, all of a sudden it'd say "low bat" and then turn off a few pictures later. There was no warning! With this camera you can at least see the battery life going down and adjust accordingly. Great feature I wished my old camera had.
12) Video. I have only shot about 15 seconds of 1080p video, I hooked it up to my LED tv for playback and the picture is great. I took the video inside, the area was lit but not well-lit. Sound is really good and I didn't have those focus issues other people were talking about (although I only took 15 seconds of video so...). I have a feeling their issues came from either having it in AUTO mode or using the optical zoom in video mode. I will take more longer videos and get back to you guys on this issue...
13) Pictures. Overall the pictures seem to come out very good. I've only used the camera inside so far, I will use it outside and update my review. The pictures seem to have good color and come out clear. Many reviewers talk about it not being "crisp" enough. Honestly I am undecided on the whole thing. They don't really seem to come out "soft" to me, but I also haven't taken many pictures with the camera either. I will take more over the weekend and update my review. As of now the picture quality seems just as good as my old SD750. One thing I did notice is that the pictures on the lcd screen, the color is slightly off. For example, I took a picture of myself against a white background with the flash off. The white background looked a bit yellow-ish on the lcd screen, but when I viewed it on my tv it looked white. So I'm not really sure whats going on here, I think the color on the lcd is slightly off which people may have noticed and figured the camera took poor pictures, but as long as they are correct when printed or transferred to your CPU, then who cares? Like I said I will take a ton more pictures and update my findings.
Bottom line is that you are spending the money on this camera for the 10x optical zoom and ability to shoot full HD video. If that's not why you are buying this camera then I suggest you get a cheaper one. Having said that, its well worth the money for the extra zoom and HD video if that's what you are into. Some of the features (such as AUTO mode and low-light setting) simply do not work. But you don't need them anyway.

Summary: It is a good point and shoot if you just want zoom, but other than that, it is really bad. i'm sure there are better options out there. The camera is very slow in taking pictures and processing them. Takes about 3-4secs to process a picture even on a fast(class 10) SDHC card. Continuous burst shooting is almost pointless because it is slow. Takes pictures fine in perfect day-light situations, but is bad in taking low-light pictures. The flash has so little power. It does a decent job for video, quality is HD even though the sound is terrible and the image stabilization for the video is useless. So it would be best to have a tripod for shooting video. I wish would have known the problems with this camera before i bought it.

Great big zoom point and shoot
by TomMariner on October 8, 2010
Pros: Pocketable size, big zoom range, simple operation, good auto mode, quick to first shot, good hd video -- all in all, a good advanced point and shoot.
Cons: Need wider wide angle, bad focus in low light / night shots
Summary: If you're looking for a competent point and shoot to have with you at all times, as I just did on a vacation to picturesque places, gotta look at ...
Summary: If you're looking for a competent point and shoot to have with you at all times, as I just did on a vacation to picturesque places, gotta look at the SD4500. The zoom range lets you get details of that painted ceiling or close-ups of details of the Coliseum from roped-off distance and frame subjects without moving up. Image detail seems good, just what you would expect from a 10 mp with some good image processing. Even determined novices with an attitude will be able to take decent shots with sixty seconds of on the spot training.
The Auto mode seems competent and easy and reacts well to most conditions. it correctly diagnosed a backlit situation and cranked in the flash unobtrusively.
but the vaunted "night mode" / low-light is lacking -- The problem seems to be focus. The camera gets the exposure right, but always messes up the focus to create a blurry mess. Possibly pilot error or the need for a afirmware update, but a little dissappointing. A video of a zoomed in lit scene that pans to a darker area in video starts crisp and focused, then tries to track a darker scene and is too dumb to just leave the focus alone.
Overall, very pleased with the camera -- I was considering the S95, but the zoom and small size fit the billl -- a great shot from a "we aren't stopping" walk isn't great if you can't take it because it requires five seconds to set up.

Great Little Camera But Very Poor Battery Life
by jeff8445 on November 14, 2010
Pros: Contrary to CNET's review, I thought this camera took great pictures. Very easy to use and size was perfect to fit in any pocket. Shutter speed and aperture controls would have been nice but not something I necessarily need in a P/S camera.
Cons: Battery life! I was lucky to get 80 pictures on a fully charged original Canon battery. Returned it for this reason.. Summarizing, I feel it's a 5 star camera but had to knock one off for the battery.

A very good camera. Lots of functions. Poor battery!!
by AshyknuckleZ on September 22, 2011
Pros: Lots of functions and settings. Easy to use. Great zoom lens. Videos at 1080p, and you can still utilize the zoom feature. Surprisingly sharp pics in low/no light modes.
Cons: THE BATTERY SUCKS!! VERY SHORT BATTERY LIFE. The camera is slow. You constantly have to wait (5 secs) for it to focus and adjust before you can take a pic. Did I mention that the batter life on this camera SUCKS!!
Summary: Overall this camera does the job for the price. What disappointed me the most was the batter life. I really don't want to have to carrying extra batteries, when ...
Summary: Overall this camera does the job for the price. What disappointed me the most was the batter life. I really don't want to have to carrying extra batteries, when I plan a day of picture taking. I'm debating on returning this camera because the battery life is, too short. Actually, I'm consider the SX210 as a replacement for the SD4500. .
Good overall image, video and low light capabilities
by bob-atkins on September 21, 2011
Pros: Excellent image quality and low light performance.
Great 10x optical zoom with image stabilization.
Very good flash - powerful and balanced
Excellent video with variable rate zoom
Mute button - turns off tattle tale 'shutter click' and other sounds.
Cons: Shutter lag (up to 5 seconds depending on mode and lighting)
Poor ergonomic body design. Hard to hold on to - can easily slip out of your hand.
Occasional unfocused shots.

Summary: I purchased this camera because I wanted to have a small camera with maximum optical zoom and a large lens for low light pictures and also the ability to shoot HD video with zoom controls. This camera has done amazingly well producing very clear images and video in low light situations without the usual digital 'noise' that I have seen in many other cameras.
The SD4500IS has an excellent hand held low light mode that allows you to take pictures in very low light of stable scenes without the usual fuzziness that comes from camera shake. In Hand held. low light mode, the camera takes 4-6 images of the scene and then processes them into a single image. The result is a high contrast, reasonably sharp image that would otherwise require a tripod or other hard surface to steady the camera in order to shoot with a long exposure. I have taken some truly stunning night time pictures of Christmas lights, coastal scenes, boats on the water in marinas that would have been impossible to get using a conventional long shutter exposure. You do need to make an effort to hold the camera steady to get the best results but it doesn't need to be rock steady - a single hand hold will work. I have found that it is now almost ridiculously easy to take very good, bordering on excellent night scene pictures casually. I still make use of long shutter times when I can setup for the shot and the results are better than the hand held low light mode however, I have also been able to capture many night scenes using the hand held low light mode that I would never have been able to get with a conventional long exposure shot and a missed shot is the worst shot of all.
I took this camera an a month long European holiday where I took pictures everywhere - over 6000 - outdoor, indoor, on boats, from trains and buses at speed and the results were outstanding. One of the things that confronts many tourists these days is that many venues either prohibit the use of flash photography or prohibit taking pictures all together. Even where permitted - taking pictures of huge places like the Doge's Palace in Venice or the interior of the Duomo in Florence - a flash is pretty much useless anyway - too much distance for it to do any good. So taking the pictures with the available and usually quite subdued light is an absolute requirement. In addition, this camera has a REALLY nice feature - the Mute option! In those instances where you need to be discrete about taking pictures you can turn off the tattle tale 'click' noise that most other cameras generate and you can take pictures in total silence. The results are amazing.
I also carried a Sony Cybershot DSC-W370 on the same trip and found that its smaller lens made it much more difficult to get decent low light pictures and the lack of a mute feature made it impossible to use anywhere that photography was restricted.
The video recording feature along with the sound is really very good although wind noise is frequently a problem. Even the slightest breeze produces very annoying wind noise on the audio. I usually carry a separate camcorder but found it completely unnecessary. This camera can shoot video as good as or better than most camcorders! Video resolution can be selected from 1080P on down to 720P, 640 and even 320 making it very versatile. You have variable rate zoom while shooting video and the camera slows the zoom rate down (as compared to not shooting video) while shooting video so that zooming during the video shots looks much more professional. The image stabilization is excellent while shooting video. I can easily obtain a steady shot while shooting at 10x zoom. I typically shoot video in 720P to maximize recording time and still have decent resolution. For most casual video, I find 1080P to be overkill in terms of storage requirements. For my month long time in Europe I took 6000+ images and over 1.5 hrs of video and it all fit on two 16GB SDHC cards. For an example of 720P HD video shot with one hand, holding the camera over my head at the Hollywood bowl visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_vJWLIBPv8. That video along with several others that I posted to Youtube demonstrate up to 10x zoom in low light conditions and what you can expect for image stabilization, focus and audio performance.
One of the nice features of this camera is the ability to select the JPG compression. I usually use Normal which produces excellent images that can easily be enlarged to 11x14 yet each one typically only requires 800KB to 1.2MB of storage. My Sony DSC-W370 (and all Sony cameras that I have reviewed) doesn't have any JPG compression choices and each image uses 4-5MB at 10Mp resolution and up to 7MB at the full 14Mp resolution. This is a HUGE amount of wasted space for what are mainly casual snapshots. This is one of the reasons I would not recommend any Sony digital cameras - you will burn your storage space up at an alarming rate - not just the on board SD card but, your disk storage at home as well. Even if storage is not your concern - it takes 3-4 times longer to copy the larger Sony images from the camera to the computer and anywhere else you may want to copy them for backup. Yes, I am sure that there are purists out there that will be shocked to have any compression but the reality is that unless you have an expert eye, a magnifying glass and a very large print you will never see the difference between a moderately compressed JPG (80%) image and a RAW, uncompressed image.
Overall the SD4500IS is a full featured camera - offering full control and override of virtually all automatic functions. It has image stabilization (essential for 10x zoom use), blink detection, various focus modes and so on. Battery life is an issue - especially with all of the standard features turned on. I had to turn off Servo AF, AF-Point Zoom, Continuous AF and AF-assist beam along with blink detection in order to have a decent battery life which isn't that great to begin with. The worst offending battery consumer is Continuous AF as it continuously processes the image that the camera sees even when you are just carrying it and it just burns through the battery in no time flat.
I carry a spare battery and one of the things that I really appreciate is the fact that the wall charger is small enough to fit into the front pocket of the small (perfectly sized) Case Logic case that I use to carry the camera on my belt. This lets me keep the spare battery in the charge cradle for easy access and avoids having to keep the charge separated from the camera running the risk of forgetting it. Once again, Sony blows it as the wall charger for the DSC-W370 is much larger - almost bigger than the camera itself making it impossible to keep in the same small carrying case and I am always looking for it when I need to recharge.
The SD4500IS camera has a 3 way slider switch on top that can switch between Full Auto, Program and Video modes. This is handy for being able to switch between full Auto and a more 'manual' Program mode on the fly. I find the video setting for the switch to be redundant with the Video record button that is provided on the top right corner of the back of the camera. The video record button allows you to shoot video on the fly with just a touch. This button can be annoying because it can easily be unintentionally pressed when grabbing the camera and you then have to figure out that it is shooting video when you just tried to take a picture and the ensuring delay while the camera stops shooting video and when you can shoot a picture can lose the opportunity for the picture you were trying to take in the first place.
Ergonomically the camera body is not very good - the case is flat and provides no grip on what is a pretty slick surface. I lost count of how many times I 'saved' it before I lost hold of it however, it has already been dropped a couple of times as a result - once on hard concrete. If Canon had put just a slight curve into the front of the body like the Sony DSC-W370 (which is the identical size body), the camera would be much easier to hold onto. As I mentioned earlier, the video recording button is located on the top right corner of the rear of the case and frequently gets pressed unintentionally while trying to hold onto the camera. I appreciate the idea behind this button however, its location combined with the poor shape of the case make it a bit of an irritation. I am impressed with the fact that the camera has taken 2 drops - one directly on hard concrete without any damage other than a small scrape in the front lower right corner.
Startup time is pretty decent - about 2 seconds before it is ready to shoot as long as the flash is disabled. 3-5 seconds if the flash is enabled which can be frustrating long. Time between shots will vary greatly depending on what features you have enabled. In full Auto mode it is a ridiculously long 3-5 seconds. In Program mode with most of the AF features and blink detection along with the flash disabled it will shoot every 1-2 seconds. Much slower than any decent digital SLR and one of the more frustrating aspects of all small digital cameras. My Sony DSC-W370 performs about the same. More than once I have wanted to press the shutter button through the case trying to force it to take a picture while it was 'thinking' for an absurd number of seconds. It is the shutter delay that is the most offensive problem with ALL small digital cameras.
My only other complaint about this camera is that unlike previous models I have encountered a higher percentage of unfocused images where the camera has missed the focus on more shots than I have experienced with earlier models. While it is a low percentage - I found that I now have to pay close attention to the focus of the shot before I press the shutter and afterwards when I review the shot because I may end up with an unfocused image. Yes, I know that I have AF-assist beam turned off along with other features but actually turning these off helped reduce the number of unfocused images! Clearly there is something not quite right going on with the new larger lens and image stabilization - they may be working against each other and the focus sensor/algorithm is not doing the job as reliably as I had experienced in the past with earlier Canon cameras.
Overall, I've learned to be more vigilant on checking the focus and I am very pleased with the vast majority of the images and video that I have been able to take with this camera. It far exceeds the capabilities of earlier Canon Elph series cameras (and I have had 3 so far). It doesn't have some of the bells and whistles that the Sony DSC-W370 has in terms of smile detection and other gee whiz features that most people would need a degree to figure out. While at 10Mp it doesn't have the highest number of Megapixels - it is the image quality that really counts - and the ability to get the image you want that matters. You could have a 14Mp DSC-W370 and end up with a fuzzy shot in a low light situation or a sharp image from the 10Mp SD4500IS. I'll take the 10Mp image over a fuzzy 14Mp one any day. Besides, with most pictures being posted on Facebook, Flickr and other online forums the need for high Mp cameras is greatly exaggerated. Few people actually print their images and most of those are 4x5 or 5x7 sizes that 10Mp images are more than suitable for. Unless you are a professional or pro-amateur like myself, barely compressed 14Mp images are basically a waste. Lens and low light performance are much more valuable features than Mp. Now, if they could just get these cameras to take the picture the moment you press the shutter I would be thrilled!
OUTSTANDING Camera, cant recommend it enough
by Cukros1 on July 14, 2011
Pros: The zoom is excellent and much better than other 10X cameras as it starts from a narrower lens (ie:36mm therefore at 10X its a 360mm, most others start at 24mm and their 10x is only 240mm). The fast start up and low light capability is amazing and so is t
Cons: Battery life is average so we had a couple of extras with us. Didnt need all of them after shooting all day.
Summary: Outstanding in all respects.
