Mom's looking for a new, cheap compact camera she can put in her purse. She did some research and brought home a Canon Powershot SD1000. She's happy with it all the way around, and I like the way it looks/feels/operates. And it was in her budge (<$200). However, I'm not sure I like the looks of the pictures.
They look too flat, 2d, and oddly textured to me. I've also read that this camera is terribly grainy at any ISO setting of 400 or greater, and that's not acceptable, as just about any indoor setting will require an ISO setting of at least 400.
However, I'm also not a photography pro by any means and may be totally wrong with my assessment and/or just expecting too much from this price point.
Would someone be willing to let me email them these pictures (since I can't upload them anywhere without resizing/messing with them) and giving me their input?
Would be greatly appreciated, as we have 10 days to play around with it and decide if we want to take it back.
