The Canon SD600 Digital Camera weighs 4.9 ounces and measures 3.4 inches in width, 0.9 inches in depth and 2.1 inches in height. It is not the lightest of cameras but it could hardly be classed as bulky.

  • The LCD screen has a high quality resolution
  • Fast Frame Rate Movie Mode for shooting high-quality movies at up to 60 frames per second QVGA (320 x 240)
  • The photos tend to show realistic skin tones
  • The photo colors are rich and vibrant
  • Only one lithium-ion battery is needed to power the Canon SD600 Digital Camera
  • Includes a 16MB memory card
  • Simple to use

What could have been better with theCanon SD600 digital camera

  • Canon could have made it easier to access the special scene modes as currently
    you’ll need to use the function key, then scroll down to the shooting modes selection, move to the right until you reach “Kids & Pets,” and then hit Menu to find the options
  • You can only access white balance and EV compensation options in the manual mode
  • You do need to purchase an additional memory card, the camera is so good you’ll be sure to use up the 16MB in no time
  • The LCD should be used because you can barely see anything through the optical view finder. Because of constant LCD use the battery would need to be recharged quite often
  • Under harsh lighting the contrast is a little high and this results in loss of highlight and shadow detail

Despite what appears to be drawbacks, the Canon SD600 Digital Camera is a very effective device. It provides great quality photos and the features that are less than perfect are all relative to the user. What I think could have been better may be absolutely fine for you. So before you pass it over, have a closer look at the Canon SD600 Digital Camera. It just might be the perfect digital camera for you.
