If you have ever wanted to capture the flow of a moving subject - such as a bird in flight or child running, then the 1000HS's ability to shoot at 8 frames per second should bring a lot of fun and delight with some amazing sequence shots.
The bright and vibrant 3 inch LCD is excellent for framing your images and especially handy when in video mode to give you an accurate picture of what you are capturing. It is worth noting again that Canon have done a commendable job in keeping the 1000HS relatively small as the bigger zoom cameras generally have a large body. Pleasingly, the 1000HS won't be a burden to carry with you.
By ordering the Canon 1000HS you will have an excellent camera to capture your memories - something not worth compromising on.
