Summary: This was a last minute replacement. I've yet to read through the manual now been printed. Not as quick as my Canon SLR 300(loved it but was hijacked in Cambodia)to change settings,but is a lot smaller. I did find it easy to use on my recent trip to Austria and a lot lighter to carry around. Will enjoy playing around. The picture quality is good, what you expect from Canon.
Summary: It is a very nifty little camera and comes with a rechargable battery (the last camera I had cost a fortune in batteries)It takes excelent pics. when on AUTO The buttons are very small for big fingers and the lead from pc to camera for downloading pics is rather tricky to insert into camera.
Summary: Had this camera a week, it replaced my faulty Fuji f40 which had given 8 years good service. Its very easy to use, in auto function the camera does it all for you, just point and shoot. The manual mode has many options,its easy to follow, the list of things it can do is endless and but its essential you read the operating manual first. The picture and video quality is very good, blurred shots are a thing of the past in auto mode.
Summary: A good camera and technology for the price, but its not perfect. Don't get me wrong, its can be much better than other cameras but you have to hold it "really" still. I have been using this camera for about 7 months now and its good but could be better. Its new "HS" technology is a real winner but its not perfect. Outside photos are true to life and more often than not very good. Indoor "HS" photos suffer from blur, grainy and being out of focus.
Summary: I bought this as a point-and-shoot camera to take with me on my honeymoon to Argentina. It takes a good, solid picture and has an excellent battery life. You get what you pay for with cameras of this nature and for the price this represents great value. My only concerns are that the menu function system is a little awkward to negotiate at times.
Summary: I wanted a cheap compact camera to take use when I don't want to carry my SLR around. I am happy with this one (aside from the fact I prefer to a have the option of a viewfinder which sadly no compact cameras include anymore - the screen is good as screens go though I've yet to use the camera in bright light). Although not a priority for me the different scene settings are quite fun to play with.
Summary: Gave me a bit of worry because it took a while for it to arrive, however, turns out its not the seller's fault as the item was dispatched the next day. it was a mistake at the reception which has been resolved. Packaging was good and camera was absolutely perfect. played with it for a while and absolutely love it. It's a perfect little compact camera, loving every bit of it and especially its price! Thanks amazon.
Summary: Read all the reviews and also compared this to the pocket digital camcorders out there As I was looking for something sub £100 but with more control than the pocket camcorders give, I went for the IXUS. Great buy as far as I am concerned. It is easy enough for my kids to use but has enough control where needed (for a snapshot camera) and the special effects are a bonus and work well THe underwater cases seem a little expensive so they will wait until later but there are...
