The DIGIC III processor allows faster start-up times, faster autofocus and less shutter lag, as well as better battery performance. The extra processing power also allows for Canon's face detection technology, which can detect and track multiple faces in an image to get the right focus and exposure on your subjects. The DIGIC III also provides better noise reduction, allow the SD750 and SD1000 to shoot up to ISO 1600.
The 2.5 inch screen on the SD1000 and 3 inch screen on the SD750 both have 230K pixels of resolution and Canon's new Pure Color LCD. This coating helps prevent scratches, smudges, and fingerprints.
