Canon Powershot A1000IS 10MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Grey)

Specifications​​​​​

The Canon A1000 IS is a new point-and-shoot meant for novice and casual photographers, with plenty of features that will aid users in taking an excellent photo. The A1000 IS has an "easy mode," which displays helpful callouts and instructions on the LCD display, guiding users through the various functions and settings. It's got a dash of style, as well, and can be found in brown, gray, purple, and blue dual-tone shades. It's aging a bit -- you might consider a newer model, like the A3000.

Hi, I’m Andy. I’ve been taking pictures for just about as long as I’ve been old enough to hold a camera. I studied photography in community college after high school but was encouraged to follow a career path that was more stable. I do gigs here and there on the side but never took the leap to focus my efforts full-time. When Pam reached out to me through a mutual friend, I jumped on the opportunity to be a writer. Favorite type of photography: macro and street.
