ImagingResource has recently posted a review of Canon PowerShot SD600 / IXUS 60, a 6.0 megapixels point-and-shoot digital camera (released on 21.02.06) featuring 3x Optical Zoom lens (35 – 105mm equivalent), a 2.5″ LCD screen, and a real image optical view finder.
“Along with providing solid image quality in regular lighting conditions with good color and accurate skin tones, the SD600 incorporates many of Canon’s technological advances for shooting with high ISOs. Boasting an ISO 800 setting is one thing — several rivals have also started offering these ISO levels and higher — but Canon backs up this ISO sensitivity rating with real, usable results…Unfortunately, using the LCD will drain the battery considerably, giving you approximately 160 shots, based on CIPA standards. With the LCD Monitor off, you’ll get about 600 images. You’ll also get approximately four hours of image playback on the SD600’s fully charged battery.”
