View Full Version : A570 or SD1000
11th of August 2007 (Sat), 21:47
So Tomorrow I am going to possibly buy a new camera.
I have narrowed it down to the A570 or the SD1000
Any suggestions Pro or Con ?
Both are approx same price around the Boston Area.
thanks in advance.

honestly, I would never buy an A5xx model, and i've seen and used almost every point and shoot model to date! SD series is the way to go for an easy to use camera that comes with a charger and rechargable battery. Also nice the SD models started coming with hard plastic lcd windows molded on the cover, kind of a must with the increasing sizes of the screens. Hope that helps and enjoy

between the two i'd go with the 570 IS. more control plus you get IS. it also uses AA, for me that is a good thing;) it is slightly bigger that the sd1000.

I prefer the A series for the extra control; only go for the SDs if you don't want to be able to control shutter or aperture, ever.

ok well thanks folks I opted for the A series. Should be good for what I need it for.

I too, just purchased an a570, have you figured out yet how to get great detail in your photos?

Post some examples of what you're getting that you're unhappy with, including the shooting data. Often a problem is as simple as the camera using too slow a shutter speed so the picture is blurred.

OH I forgot this was here.
Here are some Examples of what the A570 can do.
EXIF Data can be viewed here:
Again EXIF Data Can Be viewed Here:
Last one: a Day Shot this time ....
EXIF data :
As you can see I shoot mostly at night but the day photos come out great as well.
As you can tell by the EXIF data longest exposure for the P & S is 15 seconds wish I had longer but that will come with the DSLR I buy eventually. in a few years ha ha.
Any ?? and comments about the photos are appreciated.
Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase.
