Excerpt: The specifications shown here for the 115 IS are actually those for the 110 HS! This camera has an 8x zoom, starting at 28mm, a 2.7" rear LCD, a slower lens, a smaller sensor, and only shoots up to 720p video, not 1020p video. If you want the faster 5x zoom and the better video, get the 110 HS.
Excerpt: MY BACKGROUND: I recently lost my 300hs again because it is so small. LOL This is the best replacement over the 320HS because I just didn't want a touchscreen or GPS which runs the batteries down. Why do I get excited every time I get a new point and shoot? I keep expecting to be surprised and for things to improve. I'm a long time fan of Canon point and shoots, but I use Nikon DSLR's because of their aggressive aliasing and noise reduction.
Excerpt: "I never meant to buy this camera. I have a few cameras of various brands,styles,some old school with every size lens you can think of.I happened to be in the right place at the right time ,this was very cheap so i bought it. Picture Quality This is supposed to be a 16 Megapixels and able to capture fine detail with a 8x zoom function.I don't think thats true.When you zoom in close the quality isn't there, for the price of it i dont expect it to ...
Summary: I bought this camera just as I was leaving to work in Algeria - I simply wish I hadn't. Very disappointed had an IXUS before loved it - Please Guys at Cannon instead of giving us a heavyweight but totally useless paper user manual issue something thats useful you are cutting out a vERY large sector of the marketplace - there are places in the world with totally rubbish internet connections like here algeria ( no offence to any algerians out there) so its impossible to...
Practical and capable little point-and-shoot but a little under the quality of past IXUS models

Summary: My first digital camera was an IXUS 700 in 2005 and, costly as it was, it's still going strong on its original battery. In 2011, shopping for a family gift, I bought the IXUS 115 and again was most impressed (at a more affordable price tag by that point). So I expected much the same general feeling with the 132. In some ways, the 132 is a natural technological progression from its predecessors...
Summary: This is the smallest digital camera I've ever used, and as such fits in the pocket easily. You hardly know it's there. Despite the miniscule size, I found it pretty easy to use and handle - there aren't many controls on the body so you don't really find yourself changing settings by accident. It comes with an external charger for the battery & a wrist-strap, but does not, unlike many cameras, have any internal memory.
Summary: I've been a Canon fan half my life. From excellent point-and-shoot 35mm compacts through EOS SLR to my current EOS dSLR. And always very satisfied with the quality for the price. I don't take my dSLR everywhere, and I like a camera in my pocket. So I thought it was time for something really portable, and I examined a range of cameras, finally going for the Ixus 132 - right size, right features and a price I could afford.
