The good: Nicely designed; excellent high-ISO photo quality; relatively fast; above-average movie quality; face detection.

The bottom line: The Canon PowerShot SD750 has an attractive design, large LCD, and excellent photo quality for an ultracompact.
Practically perfect camera!

Pros: 3in screen, compact, solid, and simple
Cons: no image stablilization

Summary: The lack of a viewfinder doesn't bother me at all because I almost never used it on my old camera. The 3 inch screen is a dream!!! I love everything about the Canon SD750 except the no image stablilization. The pictures' colors look best when a flash isn't used, but because of this some pictures turn out blurry if you're not leaning on a table or something. Despite this minor flaw, I would still recomend this camera to everyone I know.

The best compact camera
by geo504 on March 19, 2007

Summary: The screen size and brightness are very nice on this camera. One feature i love is if you take a picture and the person has red eye you can fix it in the menu atfer the photo is taken. You can also add effects after the picture is taken like black and white and sepia. The camera is easy to use, stylish and compact. My only complaint is no image stabilization but unless you have very shaky hands when taking pictures you wont care too much.

Best Digital Camera I've Ever Had!
by lindsaygrant on June 17, 2007
Pros: Perfect pictures, super fast shutter speed, great movies, big and bright screen, easy to use menu, sleek and sharp look.
Cons: No charging/viewing dock.

Summary: I've had many digital cameras, ranging from Kodak to Casio to Olympus, but the Canon SD750 is the best digital camera I've ever had. I was recently using the Casio Exilim Z-1000 at 10.1 megapixels, and the Canon beats it without contest. This camera quickly captures beautiful photographs at fast speeds, and the movie mode is the best I've ever seen on a compact digital camera. The Cnet review says it all, and I just wanted to testify that you won't regret buying this camera. The ONLY complaint I have is that it doesn't have a dock. When I don't use my camera, I usually will have it on my desk where I can quickly add photos to my computer or charge the battery...I wish they would have made a dock for this camera. But that is a small complaint in contrast to all of the amazing things about this camera. One feature that I didn't know the camera had was the ability to automatically rotate pictures as you tilt the camera! Super cool feature, I think.

Service is a big problem at Canon
by Jim Brakken on May 21, 2007

Cons: Very poor service.

Summary: First, let me say that I like Canon cameras. However, just a month out of warranty, my Canon broke. Canon Repair would not back it up. They wanted me to pay for shipping plus over $100 to repair, or pay shipping plus $175 for a refurb. I wrote back that this was unacceptable. They said this was my only option. I was going to trash the camera rather than risk paying to much and having more problems. Then I found a forum that told of MANY bad Canons, all with the same problem, plus, a phone number where I could get the prob fixed at no charge. Canon should be ashamed! How many good, loyal customers fell victim to their poor service policy? I will NEVER buy or recommend another Canon product. Please help me spread the word. See the S2 string at DigitalAdvisor for more. Canon BAD. VERY VERY BAD! Thanks! Lakeleader

Forget getting sharp quality pictures with this camera!

Summary: I bought this camera and eagerly took some photos. What a disappointment! The pictures were not sharp at all. In addition, the flash is very weak and pictures taken indoors had a yellow tinge. Long story short, I returned it and exchanged it for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3. By the way,I bought it from Butterfly Photo (which had the lowest prices) and they exchanged it right away with no additional charges.

Beautiful design, poor quality
by kobydog on June 28, 2007
Pros: Excellent design, easy to handle and manuever, love the LCD

Summary: I was so excited to get this camera. I LOVE the design. Easy to hold, your fingers don't accidentally press/move buttons (like the 700/850IS), and the large LCD is just beautiful. I've had a digital camera for 7 years and have rarely used the viewfinder, so I would gladly trade a larger LCD for the viewfinder.
However.....URGH! The pictures are not sharp. I ran around my house and backyard from morning to night and took the same exact shots with my original Sony DCS-S85, a Canon SD700IS, and this one. Both Canon's color balance was much better than the older Sony, but the SD750 was so blurry all around the egdes, while the old Sony and the 700IS were clear/sharp. I was amazed at how unclear everything in the background was. Even my old Sony was sharper. The 700IS was great.
The flash on the 750 was a little weak as well, but the reason I had to return it was the poor/blurry images. The main subject was in focus, it was everything behind the subject - mostly in the upper left corner actually. I was so bummed since I especially love the design so much. I wish I could upload the photos to show you. I tried all different settings too just to see if I was doing something wrong. But the 700IS was great just on Auto.
I bought from 17photo.com and they took back no problem. Happy with their customer service.

Don't waste your time with other cameras. This ones a winner

Summary: I had purchased the Sony DCS-T20 and returned it for the T100, but returned that because of their soft pictures and absolutely horrid indoor and night time shots. I still think should remove their "review" of those cameras since they obviously didn't test those features.
I bought the Canon 750, and it blows the Sony's out of the water in just about every aspect. Great pictures, easy to use (although the manual can be a bit confusing for beginners) and tons of features. Indoor and night time shots are great, and very little of those white spots when using the flash. Something the Sony cameras exhibited a ton of. The only thing that would make this better would be more megapixels and image stabilization, but I didn't find any of my shots having a problem, even when the camera shake icon popped up.
I was going to get the 850 IS, but the 750 won out because of it's screen, slimmer profile, and overall nicer aesthetic.
Don't bother with the Sony's, they're overpriced trash.

Great clear pictures while walking or in a moving car.
by bunrth on June 28, 2008
Pros: I turn it on and shoot and no matter what the subject is, the pictures are never disappointing.
Cons: Only con is the black back. Looks like it can scratch easily but it's too soon to judge that. I personally like the all silver look.
Summary: This is my 3rd Powershot SD. I loved them all so much that I gave the two previous ones to friends to introduce them to the best. This one is ...
Summary: This is my 3rd Powershot SD. I loved them all so much that I gave the two previous ones to friends to introduce them to the best. This one is certainly a step up from my earlier Powershots. I don't know much about settings and am thrilled that I can just turn this on and shoot. I haven't been disappointed with any shots whether up close or distance. Other neat feature is to be able to view the pictures without extending the lens. I
I like the weight of this camera as opposed to my other possible choices of the lighter SD1000 or SD1100. They feel too delicate for me to have in a pocket or my purse.
Got a great price on line from a reputable .com company and was able to pick it up from their store within 24 minutes
All in all, I am really happy with this choice.

I love this camera. It'll be my only for a while!
by rp7927 on July 3, 2007
Pros: Great pics, great extra's, perfect size, NICE CAMERA
Cons: Light purple fringing in some pics. Canon help is no good.

After a month of going through reviews, I finally decided to get the sd750. I am very happy with the purchase. I myself got the Best Buy extended accidental 4 year warranty for 75.00 more but well worth not having to deal with Canon if something happens with the camera. that is the only issue I've ever had with Canon. As for the camera itself I love it. There is purple fringing in some pics but the good really out weighs the bad with this camera! I would definately reccommend this camera to anybody as a matter of fact my mom bought one a month after I bought mine because she liked it so much!!! Great Buy! If not for the occasional fringing this would have got a 10!

The best small digital camera I've ever owned!
by walt.anderson on June 27, 2007
Pros: Small size; large screen; good movie capability
Cons: too suceptible to red eye pictures

Summary: Although you would never confuse the pictures from the SD750 with those from my Canon EOS 30D, they are most remarkable for a camera this small. I've owned a number of cameras over the past 8 years from Panasonic, Sony, HP and Canon (Rebel before the 30D). I still use the 30D when I need the best quality, but the SD750 produces extremely good pictures in most "candid snapshot" situations. Its ability to produce short videos is also very good. I've never experienced a significant problem with startup time or delay between shots (although I've not tried to do a run-off between the SD750 and the 30D). The only problem I've noted is a tendency to produce "red-eye" although I've not tried to use the in-camera red-eye reduction. Overall, I would recommend this camera as excellent for the casual digital camera user and someone, like myself with a DSLR, wanting a simpler camera for a less demanding situation.
