Excerpt: Last Year October was the month that I bought this awesome camera with a lot of research. Initially I thought of going with a basic Dslr but my budget was out of my thoughts. So I decided for best point & shoot camera. Only two brands were in my mind one Canon & other was Nikon.
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.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace my previous IXUS 130 which broke but was so easy to use. This version doesn't disappoint. You literally point and press. It even has a stabiliser feature so if you shake when taking the shot, it will still come out perfect.
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 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: 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.
