Summary: Despite the Ixus125's slightly soft images by default, I am thoroughly impressed and endeared by this cute, very compact and sexy camera. The 16 mp images, which are jpeg only (no raw) respond quite well to moderate, or often strong, unsharp masking in Photoshop. As this is the only 'post' editing that usually needs to be done to the otherwise great pictures, I have no real complaints.
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: Having bought 7 Ixus camera's over the years for myself and family, each one gets better. I have only had one go wrong when I got the dreaded 'Lens Error' and I believe I got sand in the lens. Sturdy and well made and full of features.
Summary: I bought the camera to be an easy to use pocket camera for my girlfriend and for that purpose it has been excellent. The only thing that can be criticised is that I expected the battery to last a bit longer (the camera died after about 3 days of taking pictures in what I deemed as non-hardcore use). Still, pictures are great, video is great, the camera is simple to use and works fast. Altogether a great buy.
Summary: Bought this for my as a present for my wife to replace her older Ixus. The camera takes very good quality photos and its wide angle lens is better than both our previous Ixus cameras. Only grouse is that it feels less robust and has a more plastic feel. First one stopped working, but Amazon replaced it immediately (excellent service).
