DigicamReview have recently posted their review of the Canon PowerShot SD430 Digital ELPH, a 5.0 megapixels (CCD) digital camera with 3x optical zoom ( 35-105mm f/2.8-4.9), 2.0″ Color LCD with Night Display Control and a built-in wireless control for image transfer and printing.
“Image quality is good, the images have very good colour, with good contrast and detail, with low noise except at higher ISO settings, luckily ISO is kept low even when the camera is left on auto and images are taken with flash. Images were slightly soft. Purple fringing was quite low, as was red-eye. The camera is able to focus in low light thanks to the focus assist lamp. Vignetting in photos was very mild and I did not notice barrel or pincushion distortion. There is a good range of image sizes and the compression options, although unfortunately there is no choice regarding aspect ratio. Auto white balance, metering, and exposure seemed to be good to very good. There are numerous scene modes built in and some more creative modes available in my colours. There a good video mode including an unusual 60fps mode although compression isn’t very high meaning videos will need to be kept fairly short.”
