Brilliant camera if shutter didn't die outside warranty

Summary: This was a brilliant camera that I bought my partner as a gift. It had little use in the last year and was well looked after and was stored in a padded pouch. The day our little boy was born we took his first four pictures on this camera and when we came to turn it on again, the shutter jammed. Luckily somebody borrowed us their point and shoot for the rest of the stay in hospital.
Summary: Stopped working after around 7 months and Amazon directed us to the Canon repair processes. Cannon will not repair directly and so we had to pay to send it to one of their authorised repairers (over £6 SD) who then sent it to Canon who sent it to Germany! We were then informed that it would not be repaired under warranty because of the dint on the front (did not have a dint when I posted it bubble wrapped) and water ingress causing rust (never been left out in the rain).
Summary: The product I purchased arrived promptly from date of purchase and in good condition. Having used Canon cameras before I found the IXUS 115 superior to previous models I have had and am very pleased with my purchase.
Summary: I bought this as I wanted a better camera to take on holiday. I had looked at a camera magazine from 2011 and read many reviews online and it seemed exactly the sort of camera I was looking for. My brother had also said that I couldn't go far wrong with a Canon Ixus and he know's his stuff. From what I've seen of the picture quality so far, I am very pleased with my purchase.
Summary: Disappointing performance. Good low light shots, but in normal to bright conditions the colour is washed out and the images are grainy / soft. Canon wouldn't replace or refund. I bought a cheaper Samsung as a replacement and it takes better photos.
Summary: really great camera! and worth its price!! :) was worried that the start-up will be slow but its really fast, all you need is SD card with huge space to fill up with HD videos and great colour pictures!
Summary: This camera is ideal for photography on the hoof with an excellent camera and video option. This fits neatly into a pocket or handbag, and it is very simple to use. This arrived promptly and in good condition.
Summary: This Ixus camera is tiny in size and very light. The HD video recording is excellent. However, I already have an old Canon PowerShot G5 Camera and bought the Canon Ixus 115 HS to replace it. Sadly, after comparing identical shots taken with both cameras the Canon Ixus 115 HS comes a poor second place. I expected it to take similar or better photos than the G5 camera but it seems the smaller sensor in the Ixus 115 lets it down.
Summary: I bought this because I was looking for a small camera that would take high quality pictures, record videos, have a long (re-chargeable) battery life, and be intuitive to use. It scores highly on all those points. Love it.
