Canon PowerShot SD3500 IS Review

The Canon PowerShot SD3500 IS design has a sensor with a resolution of 14.1 megapixels and a 5x optical zoom lens with equivalent focal lengths ranging from 24-120mm. These focal lengths provide a range of shooting options from a generous wide-angle to a modest telephoto. Throughout the zoom range, the maximum aperture shifts from f/2.8 to f/5.9. The PowerShot SD3500 IS from Canon is equipped with genuine optical image stabilization technology, which helps reduce blur caused by shakes caused by the camera.

The Canon SD3500 IS has no optical or electronic viewfinder; the LCD on the back of the camera is used for all interactions. The Display on the Canon SD3500 has a diagonal measurement of 3.5 inches and a dot resolution of 461,000. It is believed that the LCD coverage is roughly one hundred percent.

The Canon SD3500 is capable of recording still images at resolutions up to 4,320 x 3,240 pixels, as well as high-definition movie clips at 720p (1,280 x 720) or standard-definition movie clips at either VGA (640 x 480) or QVGA (320 x 240) resolution, at a rate of 30 frames per second in H.264 MOV format, and including monoaural audio. In addition, the Canon SD3500 can take still images at a resolution.

The evaluative metering system of the Canon SD3500, which also provides center-weighted average and spot modes, is used to determine exposures. Other methods available include center-weighted average and manual. However, there is no manual control over photographs’ appearance; the Canon PowerShot SD3500 allows users to select between Auto, Program Auto, and sixteen different Scene settings.

These include Night Snapshots, Color Accents, Color Swaps, Fisheye Effects, Miniature Effects, Creative Light Effects, Beach, Foliage, Snow, Fireworks, and Long Shutters. In addition, there are seven options for the white balance: Auto, five presets, and manual. The PowerShot SD3500 IS consists of a flash with seven modes and a range that can go from 1.6 to 11 feet when using the wide-angle setting and from 3.0 to 6.6 feet when using the telephoto setting.

Secure Digital, SDHC, or SDXC memory cards can be used in the Canon PowerShot SD3500 IS to store still photographs and video. In addition, mini-HDMI high definition, NTSC/PAL standard definition composite video, and USB 2.0 High-Speed data are the available options for connectivity. The power comes from a unique lithium-ion rechargeable battery called an NB-6L, and according to the manufacturer, it has a life expectancy of 220 rounds.

The Digital ELPH models produced by Canon are consistently ranked among the most popular compact digital cameras. And why on earth not? They offer user-friendly interfaces, make high-quality photographs, and have stylish, contemporary designs. Unfortunately, I’ve used quite a few of them over the years, and they rarely satisfy me. So when people who aren’t exceptionally knowledgeable about cameras ask me which digital camera they should buy, I almost always tell them to get “one of the higher-end ELPHs.”

One of Canon’s most recent high-end ELPHs, the SD3500, has just taken the position of the SD970 IS as the company’s top-of-the-line model. The Canon SD3500 IS offers a higher resolution (14.1 megapixels vs. 12.1 MP) and a quicker, far wider-angle 5x optical zoom despite a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $50 lower (24mm vs. 37mm). Regarding ergonomics, the new model features a touchscreen display with a resolution of 3.5 inches of Pure Color LCD. This Display is capable of performing practically every primary or complex Function.

The camera has only two buttons, controlling the shutter, zoom, and a simple mode switch. The touch screen, along with the sensor and the lens, is one of the elements of this edition that is considered to be among the most important. Now let’s find out whether I’ll continue to suggest ELPHs to my loved ones and close friends.

Look and feel. The Canon SD3500 features smooth, rounded edges and a two-tone body, even though it is not as curved as earlier ELPH models. The face was silver, but the back had a black bezel around the perimeter.

Other color combinations are available, such as all-black or pink and black. As the lens is encircled by gleaming metallic rings, Canon maintains its commitment to the time-honored “box and circle” design. In addition, there are a few decals and an embossed logo. In addition, the autofocus assists lamp and the built-in flash are located on the front of the camera.

The Canon SD3500 has dimensions of 3.91 by 2.2 by 0.87 inches (WHD, in inches) and weighs 5.64 ounces (99.3 by 55.7 by 22 millimeters/160 grams) with the memory card and the battery included.

The Canon SD3500 is an appealing camera with a satisfying weight and feel. It will fit easily inside your pocket, but check to ensure there are no keys or coins to prevent the Display from becoming scratched.

Nearly 90 percent of the back real estate is taken up by a touch screen that is 3.5 inches in diameter and has a resolution of 461 thousand pixels. As a result, it offers exceptional black levels and detail, and its pixel count is comparable to that of the company’s most excellent digital cameras (the G11 and the S90).

Because of the small size of the device in comparison to the size of the screen, the thumb resting on the far left of the device is a little bit small, so your thumb naturally wanders to the top right of the screen. Even though it’s not a significant problem, having a lens cloth to wipe away any oily fingerprints is a good idea.

Body & Controls

The sole physical controls are located on the top of the camera: the Power button, the Playback button, a Mode switch with three settings, and the shutter button, which is encircled by the Zoom toggle. In addition, we have the mic with the two pinholes. Unfortunately, the controls are relatively small, so you’ll need to use the point of your nail to depress them. This is a minor annoyance, but it is certainly not anything that should rule out the possibility of using the camera.

If you’ve not used a camera in roughly ten years and you require the owner’s handbook to figure out how to use it, it’s evident that this is the first camera you’ve used in that time. For your convenience, Canon includes a printed “Getting Started” handbook that is 36 pages long—two doors with hinges that aren’t very sturdy cover the two chambers on the right side. The mini-HDMI output is on one, while the USB or A/V production is on the other.

In the space between them is an eyelet for the wrist strap, which also features a movable toggle that may be used on the touch screen if your fingers cannonry actions. Fasten the belt to increase both your security and your convenience. The left side is empty, but for a small speaker. The battery box, card slot, and tripod mount are all combined on the underside of the device.

Lens

Seeing camera makers incorporating wider-angle zoom capabilities into their portable digital cameras is heartening. Canon used a very wide equivalent of 24 millimeters for this shot, which enables it to take spectacular photos of buildings and other objects and photograph the most significant family gatherings. A highly comprehensive range for a small digital camera is provided by the 5x zoom, which may reach a maximum focal length of 120mm. Because the lens does not protrude far from the body, it is less likely to sustain damage if subjected to a collision. I enjoyed the broader views during my experiments, so although I occasionally felt I needed a more excellent zoom, such moments were very seldom.

One double-sided aspherical lens (containing one UA lens) and two single-sided aspherical lenses are included among the seven elements and six groups that comprise the Canon lens (including one UA lens). Compared to the SD970 from the previous year, the lens on the Canon SD3500 features a faster aperture of f/2.8 than f/3.2. In principle, this should be helpful in situations with low Light. The specification for the tele end is f/5.9.

There are no individual aperture changes other than those performed by the camera via specific Scene modes; therefore, if you’re seeking that degree of control and love Canon cameras, the S90 and the G11 are better options to consider.

The Canon SD3500, to its credit, possesses optical image stabilization, which assists in reducing blur. Because it also features a 9-point AF system, the camera can concentrate on the topics in the foreground rather than the objects in the background. In addition, touch AF allows you to zero in on a specific picture region just by tapping that point on the screen when you are in Program mode. This feature is part of the touchscreen technology that allows you to control the camera. For example, you may use this to target a particular face when you are in Face Detection mode or a specific region when you are not in Face Detection mode.

Modes

The Smart Auto, Program, and Movie settings may be selected via the mode switch at the camera’s top. The Canon SD3500’s Smart Auto feature, analogous to other manufacturers’ iAuto, evaluates the scene before the camera and changes the settings accordingly. Based on the Light and the topic, the system will select one of 22 alternatives, far more than its competitors provide.

It seemed to work out very well. Program mode is the next step after Smart Auto, and although it gives you more options, you shouldn’t expect it to have the same level of fine-tuning as a DSLR. In this section, you can change the metering mode of the Canon SD3500 (Evaluative, Center-Weighted, or Spot), the exposure compensation (+/- 2 EV), the white balance (six different options, including Custom), the sensitivity (ISO 80-1,600), the drive mode (single shot, continuous), as well as the resolution and compression. Once again, there are no settings for the aperture or the shutter speed.

You may choose from various scene styles when you go to the Program setting on the camera. Simply tapping the letter “P” will bring up a series of displays displaying your available choices. For example, you can select Portrait, Night Snapshot, Kids, Indoor, Smart Shutter (which activates Face Detection), Low Light, Color Accent, Color Swap, Fisheye, Miniature and Creative Light Effects, Beach, Foliage, Snow, Fireworks, and Long Shutter. You may also pick Long Shutter.

Fisheye, Miniature Effect, and Creative Light Effect are the only ones that are a little bit out of the ordinary, and we’ll go through how to use them in the “Shooting” part of this guide. As with some other digital cameras we’ve reviewed recently, there is no setting specifically designed for macro photography. However, when taking close-ups, the camera automatically uses that setting and displays the symbol in the Smart Auto mode.

The Canon SD3500 can record high-definition videos with a resolution of 1,280 by 720p using the MOV file format at 30 frames per second. Unfortunately, the sound is only available on a single channel. A high-speed card with 4 gigabytes of storage can carry around 22 minutes of video at the most excellent quality; however, you will need an 8-gigabyte card if you truly intend to go Hollywood.

Menu

The menus on Canon cameras have traditionally been relatively rational and straightforward, but a few options still make users scratch their heads. This legacy is carried on with the Canon SD3500; however, you tap on the screen to make adjustments rather than using a four-way controller. Before I go into further detail, I’d want to draw your attention to an exciting aspect.

In the default setting, the menus and the associated text have a blue-gray color combination. If you do not like this color scheme, you can select accents in khaki, pink, or Orange (I chose Orange). When you turn the camera on and select Smart Auto as the shooting mode, the resolution is 14.1 megapixels, and the aspect ratio is 4:3.

The image is displayed in the middle of the screen, and to the left and right are a pair of icons. On the right side of the screen is an icon for Smart Auto, a self-timer, and the Display, while on the left is an icon for the flash and the Function. The only Function that can be altered is the resolution; the second may either be on automatically or turned off entirely.

This is when a question that makes you scratch your head occurs. When you press Function, the symbol for the Menu will display on the right side of the screen. Why not have it shown on the homepage instead? Who anyone guesses what was going through their minds? You can activate the digital zoom (which is something I never do), the AF Point Zoom, the AF Assist Beam, the Flash (red-eye correction, red-eye flight), Blink Detection, grid lines, the icon layout, and you can turn the date stamp on or off. All of these options can be found under the Menu option.

Select the best suits your needs, and you will be ready. When you initially turn on the camera, it instructs you to calibrate the screen by tapping various areas on the Display that are marked with an x. This provides a better level of precision. I discovered that tapping with a nail rather than a fingertip was the most effective method.

When you enter Program mode, you will see previously described choices in the modes section. Once more, when you press Function, the Menu button will display on the right. In addition, you can now adjust the AF Frame (Face AiAF or a fixed frame, either tiny or standard), Servo AF, and i-Contrast, which keeps detail in areas of shadow.

Additionally, you can select the type of picture stabilization (continuous, shoot only, panning). Since brief text messages explain each setting, you won’t need to spend much time reading the Getting Started guide or the 180-page owner’s handbook included on the CD-ROM.

When you switch to the Movie mode, you’ll be able to appreciate the full beauty of the Pure Color displays thanks to the widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9. The images of the symbols are superimposed on the scene. The settings are available for resolution, exposure compensation, My Colors, white balance, and focal range. Unfortunately, there are not many options available. In Movie mode, digital zoom is only usable; the optical zoom is disabled.

Both the storage and the battery The Canon PowerShot SD3500 is one of the first cameras to support new SDXC memory cards, which can store anything from 400 gigabytes to a whopping two terabytes of data. Additionally, it is compatible with the more mundane Secure Digital and SDHC media formats. For example, suppose you want to record a significant amount of video. In that case, you should consider purchasing an SDHC card with a capacity of either 6 or 8 gigabytes rather than the more affordable 4 GB. Because the camera does not include any memory of its own, you will either need to purchase a memory card at the same time as the camera or use one of your existing cards.

Because I spent so much time playing with the touch screen and figuring out what it could do, the battery that came with the camera only allowed me to take about half as many pictures as it was rated for. Even if you limit your usage as much as possible, purchasing an additional battery is still a sensible investment, particularly if you want to travel.

I am using the Canon SD3500 for the shooting.

Taking pictures with the Canon SD3500 is about as hassle-free as one could hope for, and it is just as easy to navigate the touchscreen menu as it is to do so. Furthermore, because there are so few ways to modify a shot, all you need to do to finish up is frame your subject and press the shutter release button.

This is precisely what I did over many weeks, including visiting one of the most picturesque cities, New Orleans. Surprisingly, this was done during Lent season, not during Mardi Gras or a parade for the Super Bowl.

The camera was used most of the time in the Program mode, which utilizes the full 14.1-megapixel resolution; nevertheless, several images were captured using Smart Auto, the genuine aim-and-forget option. All the functions, except the digital zoom, were activated, including grid lines, Continuous IS, Face/Blink Detection, and most others.

LCD touch screen

Before I get into the outcomes of my photography, let me tell you about my experience using the Canon SD3500, specifically the touch screen. Because there is no viewfinder, you are entirely dependent on the LCD; we should all be that fortunate in other facets of our lives. I used it outside in the bright sunlight without encountering any issues.

The dark levels on the screen are comparable to those on some OLED panels I’ve seen. It functions properly in any lighting, and I never had any problems angling it to the point where I could see what I was focusing on. Playing back stills and films was a pleasure since it allowed you to inspect them in more detail while accurately representing the captured colors. It is a winner, as is the touch screen operation, which is up there with Sony’s most recent attempts and even exceeds it in certain circumstances. Both of these aspects make it a winner.

I spent much time strolling about New Orleans and capturing pictures and videos along the Mississippi riverfront and in the city’s cemeteries and other public spaces. The camera could swiftly lock on thanks to its 9-point autofocus mechanism, after which it began firing away. At wide-angle, the shutter lag is a decent 0.53 seconds, and at telephoto, it is 0.44 seconds.

When you prefocus, the delay time is reduced to 0.08 seconds. The time required to start up is around 2 seconds, which is about par for the course. I enjoy wide-angle photography, and the 24mm setting effectively captures images of historic structures and monuments. At the same time, the 120mm end of the lens allowed me to get some fantastic shots of the architectural details. At maximum resolution, the Canon SD3500 is not the speediest demon on the block; it is rated at 0.7 frames per second.

For those interested in sports photography, this one is not for you, but neither are the vast majority of pocket digital cameras; nonetheless, those interested in photographing static subjects will be more than satisfied. The Face Detection AiAF did an excellent job, contributing to the superb quality of the photographs of people.

To evaluate how well the camera performs, I always make several 8×10 prints with a full bleed and do not post-process them. I also look at images at a magnification of over one hundred percent on the monitor and play them back (stills or video) on a 50-inch plasma screen connected to the HDMI port. The laboratory findings were reflected in my prints. The image had soft edges, for example, when using telephoto and intermediate focal lengths.

The corners of wide-angle shots are softer than usual, although this is due more to chromatic aberration than natural softness. At telephoto, chromatic aberration is not very noticeable but becomes more pronounced at wide-angle. There was no pincushion distortion when using the telephoto lens, but there was considerable barrel distortion when using the wide-angle lens. The very center of macro photographs has excellent sharpness, but as you leave the center, chromatic aberration and softness begin to take control. As a result, macro pictures are only sharp at the very center.

The printed results are unsatisfactory since, depending on the Color of the objects, the Canon SD3500 produces fine and highly soft details. This causes the maximum print size to be limited to 11×14 inches. (See our study of the image with cropping in the following paragraph.)

The flash on the Canon SD3500 is quite vital for its size; nevertheless, the camera must raise the ISO to 500 to get this decent exposure at the distances suggested by the manufacturer; as a result, image quality is diminished to some degree. Nevertheless, the quality of the printed output was pretty satisfactory, particularly for photographs of individuals.

The Canon SD3500 produced outstanding photos whenever there was enough sunlight. Unfortunately, even in low ISO photographs, there is a significant amount of noise reduction, likely caused by the 14-megapixel sensor.

The floral arrangement images were taken indoors using the available Light with beautiful colors, although there was evidence of digital artifacts. The tungsten lights produced the yellowish hue problems, nt quality was satisfactory, and the optical image stabilization did a decent job of removing blur.

Scene modes

While I took most of my while I took most and Smart Auto modes, I used a few scene modes, such as Fishused a few creative Light Effects. The fisheye effect is entertaining because it warps straight lines like those found in trees and buildings.

The miniature likes odd since it sharpens only the middle portion of your subj, whirring the top and bottom parts. It didn’t do anything for me, nor did the Creative Light epartsThank you very much; however, I’norer taking photos with a beautiful wide-angle zoom le; howeverdition, taking pictures in the dim Light was not a problem at all. Even with the resolution down to 3.5 megapixels, there was a lot of noise in the image of the candle in the dark.

In addition, because it is a point-and-shooimagea with 14.1 megapixels, it suffers substantial noise issues at settings higher than ISO 400. The faster aperture of f/2.8 didn’t assist that much, if at all. It cannot even be compared to the f/2.0 aperture of the Canon S90 camera, which is paired with a bigger 10-megapixel image sensor.

Video Quality

The movie quality is good but cannot compare to a brand-new AVCHD camcorder. The fact that you can wander around taking pictures and switch to video when the mood strikes is an added advantage. For example, this occurred while photographing a New Orleans paddle-wheeler or a street musician. The footage appears relatively smooth on a small computer screen. However, the image stabilization has footage appeararelativelyIt is unreasosmallto expect my home. However, to display a blowup of 50 inches. The obstructions are pretty obvious.

Playback

The high-quality screen makes it a great pleasure to study your photprettys, even if they weren’t correctly framed or if your subject occurred to move while you were taking them. The Canon SD3500 provides you with access to a variety of onboard editing functions and allows you to evaluate your photographs in various ways. For example, to “walk” through your pictures, you must add or suitable sopor model to the screen. This is absolute control. You may swipe the screen to move forward or backward through the content.

You may access a vy of index views by sliding the toggle that controls the amount of zoom. For example, when you have a photo you want to study more carefully, you may press e, bringing up a histogram and the details associated with the shot. If you tap it once more, you’ll receive a zoomed-in view of a smaller portion to check where the emphasis is. Within this magnified window, you may drag the mat with your finger to examine different parts of the picture (it zooms to detected faces by default or the main selected AF point).

You can access options that allow you to rotate, protect, tag as favorites, and remove photos when you can access the icon in the screen’s lower-left corner. The primary image is surrounded by four more ideas identical to the main screen’s lower-left corner screen. In addition, the playback may be ideas to date, category, or file type, an sl can be initiated, and individual photos can be designated for a specific class. After selecting the menu option, you can access various editing capabilities, such as cropping and reducispecificaclasse of red-eye. You will also be able to apply i-Contrast shadow processing to your photographs. Because the screen is high quality, you can carefully check your work. It’s a good time all around.

Active Display, another peculiar feature developed by Canon, is included in the Canon SD3500 camera. Tap the camera’s right side rather than anywhere on the screen to move forward or backward. However, you may swiftly go through your shots if you simultaneously tilt them while pressing the camera’s right side. I don’t care if you call me “However, you-fashioned,” but I’d much instead tap or swipe the screen than use any other method. Because this is not a ruggedized digital camera, if you use this method, you need to make sure the camera is fastened to your wrist with the strap so that it does not fall to the ground if it falls out of your hand.

Quality of the Image

Color

The PowerShot SD3500 IS generally provided decent Color but with a slight oversaturation of solid tones such as reds, blues, and brilliant greens. The overall color generally city was satisfacolorision of the hue slightly higher theological since shifts are just somewhat noticeable. The Color cyan advances in a minimal direction toward blue, whereas the Color yellow moves closer to green. While lighter, skisomewhatseem just a little bit too warm, darker a minimal oak, about perfect, even if they hint at redness; however, on the whole, the results are satisfactory.

ISO

Noise and Detail: Although efforts to control noise are already evident at Ihint, it is still relatively reasonable up to roughly ISO 200. At any given ISO, the chroma (Color) noise is relatively well controlled, but the evidence noise becomes increasinglyrelativelyeable. Finally, at an ISO of 1,600, detail is lost and replaced with a washrelativelyee the “Printed outcomes” section for further information on how this impacts prints.

Flash

Our testing, indicated by the manufacturer and seen on the right, reveals brilliant results at the recommended wide-angle distance of 11 feet but with an increase in ISO to 500. Furthermore, the telephoto test produced satisfactory results even when carried out at the needed length of 6.6 feet (again, ISO 500). As a result, the Canon SD3500 flash may be used effectively even at the maximum distances specified for it, despite significant picture noise. However, when it comes to the actual application, you should keep firmly inside those parameters.

By increasing the ISO to just 320 and utilizing a modest shutter speed of 1/15 of a second, the auto flash preserved some of the available ambient Light in the scene. The result was a picture warmer than the one created by Auto Portrait Flash. The results are pleasing, but the subject and the photographer must remain motionless.

The Auto Portrait Flash mode employed ISO 200 and 1/60 of a second, which resulted in an underexposed and flatter picture but had a more significant potential to freeze motion. Images were captured on a steady tripod at around 5 feet (1.6 meters).

Incandescent: The setting for manual white balancing was the one that performed the best overall with the incandescent lighting in our home. It provided the most accurate white values. The auto-white balance setting also looked beautiful, albeit with a tint of red, but the incandescent option created a solid pink cast.

Performance of the Canon SD3500 IS

Shutter lag

The delay in shutter actuation during full autofocus is acceptable, clocking in around 0. beautiful at wide-angle and 0.44 seconds at maximum telephoto. The prefocus shutter lag is 0.080 seconds, which is not the quickest time available but is still relatively fast.

Timing of the cycle

However, in single-shot mode, the camera only takes a picture once every 2.4 seconds, which is a somewhat sluggish cycle time. Canon rated the continuous shooting rate in full resolution as 0.7 frames per second for the SD3500.

Recycle the Flash

After a discharge of its maximum power, the Canon PowerShot SD3500 IS flash takes a somewhat long 7.5 seconds to recycle.

Conclusion

Even though it has a few shortcomings, the Canon PowerShot SD3500 IS Digital ELPH creates an overall favorable impression. The screen is gorgeous, and the functionality of the touch screen is excellent. You won’t miss the traditional four-way controller or the center set key. The 5x focal length gives you much flexibility, and the 24mm wide-angle option is delightful. In addition, the optical image stabilization that comes standard on Canon cameras makes it much easier to take clear, detailed photographs.

The printed results are adequate for printing snapshots up to 11×14 inches. Still, due to overly severe noise suppression, they do not climb to the level obtained by 12-megapixel cameras from Canon and other manufacturers. Nevertheless, the photos I took with my Canon in decent lighting looked fantastic. Still, dues are pretty wealthy. As we pointed out, the images obtained in lesser Light had some problems, but the ones taken with the flash were extremely nice, especially those with people.

The Canon SD3500 is a reasonably lovely snapshot camera with an unusual interface; nonetheless, the overzealous noise suppression significantly lowers the output quality, making it unsuitable for enthusing. On the other hand, the only prints you ever make are 4×6 inches with a bit of cropping, and if you enjoy using a touchscreen interface, you can overlook the resolution and give the Canon SD3500 a try without worry.
