Quick Take

The PowerShot SD3500 is just as solid as any other Digital ELPH manufactured by Canon in recent years. Image quality is good, but we found the touchscreen to be finicky.

Canon’s SD series digicams are all about pocketable style and operational simplicity. These little cameras have been consistently popular with consumers since the first digital ELPH was introduced way back in 2000.

That’s because they reliably deliver what consumers want in a point-and-shoot – an image capture device that makes great pictures, is easy to use, offers better than average performance, and is reasonably priced. The Canon PowerShot SD3500 IS is also one of Canon’s only digital compacts with a touchscreen LCD.
