  • Excerpt: "...we have not used the Canon M-1 for about 2 years now. However, at the time of purchase, APS seemed a great idea. It was fool proof, it allowed compact cameras to get even smaller, after developing the photos the negatives were retained in the film unit and you could select different perspectives for each shot. These were the reasons why I bought my wife this camera. We have taken many photos in the 2 years of using it and it cannot be faulted ...
  • Pros: Compact, easy to use, built in lens cover and excellent quality photos .
  • Cons: Feels cheap, shutter release button too stiff .

  • Excerpt: "I love my canon ixus m1! I got it two and a half years ago for my eighteenth birthday but it is still fashionable to look at and effective in what it does! (The origional lithium battery lasted two years) Its compact design means it can easily fit in my handbag when I go out with my friends on a night out...and the easy loading film means I can replace it safely even when I've had a drink or two! The camera has the usual aps options, the three ...
  • Pros: really easy to use
  • Cons: doesn't have a zoom

  • Excerpt: "I've had this camera for nearly four years now. It's been all over the world with me, dropped a million times and still continues to take great pictures. It's so small I keep it in my pocket constantly ready to capture anything at any time. It has a timer featue, can print the date and time on the front or back of your photos and a special 'night time' setting to capture more background on night shots (I don't recommend using this unless you have ...
  • Pros: Small, sturdy, sleek .
  • Cons: Can't 'resume' films once taken out

  • Excerpt: I've always loved cameras but they never liked me much. Ever since I can remember I've been fascinated by those little boxes and by the fact that other people can create such beautiful pictures. But for me they were always blurred, dark, askew or just double-exposed. So when my sister bought me this for my 21st Birthday with the assurance that all of the above would change I didn't believe her... How wrong could I have been.

  • Excerpt: Before I get to the actually camera in this case, I shall briefly describe the APS (Advanced Photo System) because it is quite different to the “normal” 35mm film that we’re all familiar with. The film itself comes in a self-contained cartridge which enables quick reloading (if necessary). In order to load (or reload) the camera, you simply drop the cartridge into the slot, and close the cover. The APS films come in 3 sizes: 25 frames or 40 frames.

Picture Perfect...well almost.

  • Excerpt: "...have been a problem but Canon have found a way around it by providing a little plastic thing (I can't think of another way to describe it) that is attached to the Camera's wrist strap and which aids in the setting of the various functions. Of which there are many. Some of the most useful functions are the 'red-eye reduction', which really works, and knowing that you can take pictures in semi-darkness and that they wil come out is quite liberating. ...
  • Pros: Incredibly easy to use, Great Photos, Speed .
  • Cons: Price, Flash could be awkward .

  • Excerpt: "...amount of features that the Canon has. Speaking to a few photographer friends of mine, they assure me that this is to do with the APS film rather than the camera itself, and I have to say that as a casual user of cameras, the picture quality is good enough for my purposes. One final point – the build quality of the camera. I’ve already said that the camera is small, and light. This might make you think that it’s quite fragile, ...
  • Pros: Small, light, easy to use, nice features
  • Cons: APS developing is expensive
