This magnificent lens gives you the power to shoot distant subjects with razor-sharp precision and stunning lifelike color, so you can brilliantly capture a bird high atop a tree, a child's winning goal from across the stadium or a school play from the last row. Plus, thanks to Canon's highly sophisticated Optical Image Stabilizer technology, even at maximum zoom, every image is rock steady.

Image Stabilizer
The A1000 IS is equipped with Canon's acclaimed Optical Image Stabilizer Technology that automatically detects and corrects camera shake-one of the leading causes of fuzzy or blurred shots. Even when zoomed in, you can get the steady, crisp, brilliant images you'll be proud to shoot and share. And Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer Technology is so convenient to use, it functions perfectly with or without a flash.

Now you can have a camera that's as fresh and original as you are. It's a difference that will get you noticed and one that's sure to drive your creativity to new heights!

See the Image in the Big Screen
High quality 2.5-inch LCD and optical viewfinder for convenient shooting.
The PowerShot A1000 IS's 2.5-inch LCD screen gives you the big picture, whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your images. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear and bright picture. It also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light.

It's All About Capturing the Smiles
DIGIC III Image Processor with Genuine Canon Face Detection AF/AE/FE/WB sets the focus, exposure, flash and white balance automatically so you always capture the perfect face.

DIGIC III Image Processor
With DIGIC III, your images boast superior quality, the camera operates at top efficiency and battery life is enhanced. What's more, DIGIC III enables Canon's Face Detection, Motion Detection Technologies and Red-eye Correction to give you better, more true-to-life people shots. Simply press the shutter button halfway down, and the camera automatically pinpoints the faces in the scene and chooses the ideal focus point. The camera controls exposure settings and flash to keep every face looking bright and natural. The camera also selects and sets the optimal exposure and ISO settings automatically to keep everything looking sharp and clear. Red-eye Correction can be handled in-camera, in two ways. The Red-eye Correction during shooting uses the Face Detection Technology to recognize and remove red-eye from images as they're taken, before the file is written to the memory card. It's also possible to correct red-eye during image playback, using simple settings in the PowerShot A1000 IS's menu.

iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the fast DIGIC III Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.

DIGIC III features Face Detection technologies, giving you the best possible results in any shooting situation. Face Detection AF/AE sets the focus point and exposure for the faces of your subjects. Face Detection FE adjusts the flash to correctly illuminate your subject to provide the best balance between your subject and the overall scene, eliminating the common problems of over and underexposed faces.

Face Detection WB means the camera concentrates upon faces when calculating white balance for the best possible skin tones. Face Select and Track lets you highlight one face among several in a scene, and the camera concentrates on that person, even as they move around the scene. Face Detection Technology is a powerful contributing factor in Canon's Motion Detection Technology. Simply press the Face Selector Button, then the selected face is double-framed and tracked when the face moves in the frame.

Motion Detection Technology works in the background to instantly evaluate how fast your subject is moving. It automatically selects and sets the optimal exposure and ISO settings to keep everything looking sharp and clear. This feature provides higher ISOs when you need it for action-stopping shutter speeds. But when no movement is detected, it sets lower ISOs for excellent color and detail.

Life doesn't give you second chances to capture special times. That's why the PowerShot A1000 IS features ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto settings that reduce the effects of camera shake and sharpen subjects in low-light situations, giving you greater shooting flexibility.

Red-eye Correction provides three options for removing red-eye from subjects in flash pictures.
1) The Red-eye Correction during shooting actually identifies and corrects red-eye in human subjects as pictures are taken.
2) The A1000 IS can be set to automatically detect and correct red-eye during image playback.
3) You can manually locate any red eyes in a scene during image playback on the LCD screen, and command the camera to remove them.

No Worries, Just Great Pictures
Easy Mode and Easy Playback mode for peace of mind shooting and simplified operation.

When you're taking pictures, the only thing you want to think about is your subject. That's why the PowerShot A1000 IS is equipped with Canon's Easy Mode that works in the background to handle all the technical details for you. Now you can relax and concentrate on choosing just the right angle, capturing the perfect expression, framing your shot perfectly. To make showing off your images just as carefree, the A1000 IS features the new Easy Playback mode that makes viewing single images and slideshows on the camera effortless-even if you're new to digital photography!

Comments about Canon Canon PowerShot A1000 IS Digital Camera (Purple):

Overall, good camera for the price. My only complaint is that the battery and memory card share a compartment, so changing one creates the risk of the other falling out. Other than that, great camera.

Comments about Canon Canon PowerShot A1000 IS Digital Camera (Purple):

So far it seems to be just what my wife wanted. I bought the camera for her, because she wanted a digital camera she could carry in her purse. It takes great pictures. I wanted one with a viewfinder, as the LCD can be difficult to see in bright sunlight. Has a lot of nice features which she will probably never use, but I wanted some of them for the times that I will use it. All in all a great buy for the money.

Comments about Canon Canon PowerShot A1000 IS Digital Camera (Purple):

Bought this camera for my daughter who is graduating high school. She will take it to college to keep current on facebook, projects for school and general entertainment. Best rated of all the cameras I searched in this price range. The choice of colors made it especially nice because it isn't the run of the mill camera.

Comments about Canon Canon PowerShot A1000 IS Digital Camera (Purple):

Our daughter is doing an internship, at a zoo, in Tyler, Texas, and will be there for the entire summer. We wanted to get her a camera that was easy to carry and easy to use, so she could have photos to remember her trip and of course to be able to e-mail pictures home. The quality of the pictures she sent is superb. She is very happy with the camera and we can't wait to see the photos she sends back home.

Comments about Canon Canon PowerShot A1000 IS Digital Camera (Purple):

This is a great camera for the price. I played with it a bit when I first got it, but then gave it to my daughter. (I decided that I wanted a camera that was more powerful so I purchased a different Canon.) I loved the large preview screen, and the camera is very easy to set up and to use. It fits wells in my purse and is lightweight. The picture quality is typical of any Canon...excellent, in my opinion.

Comments about Canon Canon PowerShot A1000 IS Digital Camera (Purple):

I wanted a camera that was easy to use--just point and shoot. I researched digital cameras on the internet and decided on the A1000 IS. I couldn't be happier. Within a few minutes, I was ready to take the first of many photos of my three cats. The quality is absolutely great. I've had the camera for several weeks and I really can't find anything negative to say about it. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a easy to use digital camera.
