  • Excerpt: Canon’s Ixus line is renowned for its styling, but the Digital Ixus 970 IS’s design is a triumph of style over substance. It looks great but its ergonomics are terrible, which is a shame as the technology inside the pretty shell allows you to capture some great images.

  • Pros: Crisp output images; excellent colour reproduction; high zoom; attractive design.
  • Cons: Fiddly and sluggish controls; pricey; poor ‘high-sensitivity’ mode.

Canon Digital IXUS 970 IS

  • Summary: Compared to the slick angles and chic lines of recent IXUS', the bubbly, bulbous curves of the Canon Digital IXUS 970 IS have us nonplussed. We hate to judge a camera just on its looks, but the lack of features don't give us much choice. Still, if you've fallen in love with this cheery snapper, you haven't wasted your money.
  • Pros: 5x optical zoom, Fast burst mode even with flash, Decent image quality
  • Cons: Exposure compensation only, Styling won't appeal to everyone
