Canon PowerShot SD10
It's fitting that Canon's latest
Digital Elph, the 4-megapixel SD10, debuted during New York's
Fashion Week at the runway show of Patricia Field, costume
designer of Sex and the City. Great-looking and available
in several classy finishes, this Canon is just as fashionable
and expensive as the Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo shoes that
play such a large role in the life of Carrie Bradshaw, SATC's
lead character. The SD10 also takes some darn good pictures. But
with a fixed 39mm focal length, this camera, like designer
pumps, is more about style than utility. If you want it, shop
smart and don't pay retail.
Chic and ultracompact; earned high marks
for both performance and image quality.
No optical zoom; no optical viewfinder;
pricey for its class.
The bottom line:
Style and simplicity are this camera's
strong suits, but competing models offer more features
for the money.
