Summary: I appreciate that a lot of people use their mobile phones for taking pictures, but there is something to be said for digital compact cameras. My last camera gave up the ghost while on holiday, and I ended up using my phone camera. Although my phone camera was pretty good re megapixels (which were more than my failed camera), there were a number of drawbacks, inc shutter speed. This camera is good, although there are possibly 2 drawbacks.
Summary: Bought as a present to replace my girlfriend's aging Sony and it has done her proud. Takes really beautiful pictures (rivals my Canon SLR, albeit this is more up to date), is a doddle to use and very compact, yet it feels substantial and robust without being heavy. I'd definitely recommend the Ixus range to anyone looking for a mid-range compact camera.
Summary: After looking on Youtube at all the test footage I could find for the video and the pictures I was sold right there and wasn't disappointed when I got the product. It's got a whole bunch of features I love. It is true that it doesn't have certain manual features like setting appeture and that but I find myself absolutely happy about the quality of the picture. The interface and going in and out of the settings I find to be easy and quick to do.
Summary: I do like my camera but the only complain is that is doesn't come with a manual. That can be found online but that's not always the best place to refer to it. To buy one is expensive, over £10 I think, and to print it off is not an option, too many pages.
Summary: Light easy to use for point and shoot. Very complicated and confusing, too difficult for me, instructions on computer not convenient. Excellent optics and for normal use very good. But I get tangled if I want to do other things.
Summary: Arrived on time. Perfect colour. Super Pictures. Downside no Instruction book. Had to be careful down-loading instruction's as there were so many pages which were not needed. Took a little while to sort out what I might want. That said super camera. Love it.
