As well as being compared against other travel zooms, the Canon Digital IXUS 1000 HS is also often compared to ultra compacts, pro digicams, super zooms and compacts. The Canon Digital IXUS 1000 HS's top rivals come from Canon (such as the PowerShot SX230 HS and the PowerShot IXUS 350 HS) and Fujifilm (such as the FinePix Z1000 EXR and the XQ2)

compared toTravel zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Canon 1000 HS compared to other travel zoom competitors include: it has a CMOS-family sensor (CMOS vs CCD) and has a faster max shutter speed (1/4000 of a second vs 1/2000 of a second).

However, on average it has a much narrower wide angle lens (36 mm vs 25 mm), doesn't have a built-in GPS, has a slightly lower resolution screen (230k dots vs 461k dots), is older (august 2010 vs february 2014) and is slightly heavier (190 g vs 155 g).
