DCRP Special: Canon PowerShot SD400 vs SD500  
   

by Jeff Keller, DCRP Founder/Editor
Last Updated: June 27, 2006

Since there's been some interest in the subject, I took several side-by-side shots using the Canon PowerShot SD400 and SD500 Digital ELPH. With the exception of the last two shots, all the photos were taken with a tripod. And unless otherwise noted, the ISO was set to 50 on both cameras with all other settings the same. I did my best to frame each photo in the same way. Don't forget that the focal range on the two cameras are different, which is why the SD500's shots are more zoomed in.

You can click on the thumbnail to see the full-size image. Click on "View EXIF Data" to see the settings used for the photo. Do note that Canon does not embed the ISO value into the EXIF data for some unknown reason.

Photos were taken at Mission Dolores in San Francisco.
