Canon PowerShot SD 750 or Ixus 75 Digital Camera Review

This Canon digital camera (slimmest optical zoom camera from Canon) offers superb response times and high-quality image rendering through Canons DIGIC III image processor. Some interesting features include: Red-Eye Correction in playback, Face Detection AF/AE/FE and Noise Reduction Technology, ISO 1600 and Auto ISO Shift, 17 Shooting modes plus My Colors photo effects.

The new aesthetics (silver and silver with black accents, elegant, cutting-edge design and large LCD) from Canon first gives me a good impression, but I miss the viewfinder (it was present at Ixus 70 (SD 1000). Also it lacks the image stabilization of the SD800 IS.

A new Time Lapse Movie function allows a scene of two hours duration to be condensed to a fluid eight minute or four minute movie file, obtaining very stunning effects. A new Auto ISO Shift function prevents blur by giving users the option to boost the ISO setting – and consequently shutter speed – with a single button press, whenever the camera predicts camera shake. Photos tend to have purple fringing; white balance, exposure, and saturation look very good.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
