“Although the Canon Digital IXUS 75 doesn’t have many whistles and bells, the large screen and smart styling easily make up for what is by today’s standards an undistinguished spec sheet. Above all, picture quality is excellent for this size of compact”

DigitalCameraInfo reviews the Canon PowerShot SD750 (IXUS75) and writes;
“Consumers who want a camera to tote to the park, work, restaurant, and elsewhere will be pleased with this model: it’s small enough to stash in a pocket and flat enough to be comfortable, too. The Canon PowerShot SD750 measures 3.61 x 2.24 x 0.77 inches and weighs 4.59 ounces without the battery and memory card. It has a wrist strap eyelet on the right side to ensure it won’t slip out of a hand and hit the concrete, and the weight won’t break wrists either. The weight feels just as it should with those dimensions: the camera isn’t heavy, nor is it light.”

PhotographyBlog reviews the Canon PowerShot SD750 (IXUS75) and writes;
“The Canon Digital IXUS 75 produced images of good quality during the review period. As expected from previous use of Canon cameras, colours are naturalistic bordering on warm, especially when it comes to skin tones, which is no bad thing…The Canon Digital IXUS 75 produces noise-free images at ISO 80, 100 and 200, with ISO 400 showing some noise and slight blurring of detail. ISO 800 has quite visible noise and ISO 1600 is best avoided at all costs. ”

TrustedReviews reviews the Canon PowerShot SD750 (IXUS75) and writes;
“The verdict is virtually the same as for the IXUS 65. The Canon IXUS 75 had the potential to be the best pocket compact on the market, with ultra-quick performance, attractive styling and excellent optical quality, but image quality problems including lack of detail, compression artefacts and image noise are big handicaps, especially considering its high price compared to other similar cameras. ”

ImagingResource reviews the Canon PowerShot SD750 (IXUS75) and writes;
“the Canon SD750’s image quality was the biggest disappointment. Most of my images were soft throughout, skies were strangely blued and shade shots showed a pronounced blue color cast. All of this was barely detectable on the Canon SD750’s large, bright LCD, which just made for greater disappointment. Overall, the Canon SD750 is a pretty good choice, but we think the less expensive Canon PowerShot SD1000 is a better choice unless you just have to have the big, beautiful screen on the Canon SD750.”

ePhotozine reviews the Canon PowerShot SD750 (IXUS75) and writes;
“The IXUS 75 scores well on all accounts. It is stylishly designed, well-built, and performed well in all of the ePHOTOzine tests. It boasts an array of additional features including various scene modes, automatic face detection, DIGIC III technology and the added benefit of iSAPS. ISO modes range from 80 to 1600, macro modes focus from as close as 3cm and the LCD is exceptionally large making for ease of menu access and playback function. Also the burst mode capabilities were highly impressive – the only thing I wasn’t impressed with was the lack of Red-Eye reduction functions. ”

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Canon PowerShot SD750 (IXUS75) and writes;
“The overall image quality was very good for a 7-megapixel model. We used the highest quality setting available (Large SuperFine), and when doing so, the SD750 captured nice images…Bottom line – Canon has added another appealing Digital ELPH model to its “ultra-compact” model line. With a street price of US$299 or less, I feel the Canon Powershot SD750 offers a great value for a rugged, 7- megapixel “ultra-compact” digicam. It is easy to use, has great speed, and except for a little noise on higher ISOs, takes excellent photos and surprisingly, allows for some very creative movies. ”

CamerasUK reviews the Canon PowerShot SD750 (IXUS75) and writes;
“Outdoors the camera is as good as any pocket sized camera I have reviewed recently. In all three photos sharpness levels are better than I am accustomed to seeing…There are easier to use cameras out there. Although this one is not that difficult to get to grips with, especially if you are using basic, automatic functions…The Canon IXUS 75 is simply the best pocket sized digital camera I have tested recently. It did well in just about every test I put it through. I was impressed with my test results in lowlight as well as outdoors. Add in the 3 inch screen and you have an excellent camera. Recommended.”

GoodGearGuide reviews the Canon PowerShot SD750 (IXUS75) and writes;
“Our final test is for image noise, and once again the IXUS 75 impressed. It’s score of .66% is great for a compact camera, and is indicative of excellent performance in this area. Our shots were clean and noise free. Furthermore, they scaled quite well with higher sensitivity, scoring just 1.51% at the highest ISO of ISO 1600. For those regularly shooting in low light or high speed situations (such as children’s sporting events) the IXUS 75 is a great choice…Despite having a big screen, the IXUS 75 is a tiny camera. Measuring just 91.6mm x 19.6mm x 56.8mm and weighing 130g, it is the ideal device to throw in your bag or pocket and take out with you. Those after an all purpose compact camera will love how portable and convenient the design is.”

CNET reviews the Canon PowerShot SD750 (IXUS75) and writes;
“Photo and movie quality rank high for an ultracompact. In fact, despite almost identical innards with the SD1000–they both use the same sensor, f /2.8-4.9 35mm-105mm (35mm equivalent) 3X zoom lens, and Digic III processor–the photos from the SD750 look a bit better, especially vis-a-vis high ISO noise…The bottom line: The Canon PowerShot SD750 has an attractive design, large LCD, and excellent photo quality for an ultracompact. ”
