The Good Ultracompact design; long battery life; excellent burst capabilities; low shutter lag; versatile movie mode.

The Bad Few manual controls or scene modes; image quality is far from stellar.

The Bottom Line Decent image quality and a well-rounded snapshot feature set make the high-performance ultracompact Canon PowerShot SD450 one of the better choices in the current Digital Elph lineup.

Instead of a mode dial, you use this switch to select shooting and playback modes.




The four-way controller and a few buttons on the back of the camera let you change settings.




There's little on top of the camera aside from the shutter release, the power button, and a zoom toggle.






You can save images and video on an SD or MMC card with the SD450.










The diminutive lithium-ion battery held up well in our tests.
