  • Excerpt: If you're under the impression that size matters, Canon's all set to change that notion with the Canon Digital IXUS 980 IS. This ultra compact has left quite an impression on us, and here's why. Build For starters, this bundle of joy boasts of a small and sturdy frame (98 x 62 x 28 mm to be precise) and weighs a measly 205 grams, making it incredibly convenient to carry along.

  • Summary: The Canon Digital IXUS 980 IS / PowerShot SD990 IS Digital ELPH is the current flagship of the IXUS / ELPH range, and the first to offer a true manual mode.  While the range of f-stops selectable at any given focal length is rather restricted, probably due to the lack of a proper iris diaphragm, the 45 distinct shutter speeds and 6 different ISO settings still leave enough room for manoeuvre.

  • Excerpt: A Canon mindig is élen járt a fényképezőgép-fejlesztésben, így a hétköznapi célokra szánt kompakt fényképezőgépei is hozták a csúcstechnológia minden vívmányát. Így van ez jelenlegi tesztalanyunknál, az IXUS 980 IS digitális fényképezőgépnél is. Külcsín A régebben divatos szögletes formákat lassan, de biztosan felváltják a jobban kézreeső, áramvonalasabb megoldások.
  • Pros: Kis méret, egyszerű és átlátható kezelhetőség, manuális beállítási lehetőségek.
  • Cons: Vaku a sarki elhelyezés miatt kitakarható, néha bizonytalan színhőmérséklet-automatika.
