Excerpt: This year we’ve seen a flurry of ultra-compact cameras with 10x zoom lenses and Wi-Fi. The Canon Ixus 255 HS is our favourite – it also happens to offer the best image quality we’ve ever seen from an ultra-compact camera. It costs around £200, but if that’s beyond your budget, the Ixus 140 might be a better fit. Its 8x zoom is a little smaller, with slightly less extension at both the wide-angle and telephoto ends of the zoom range. Battery life is down, too.
Excerpt: The brand new Canon IXUS 140 is less boxy than some of the more rectangular looking IXUS models that have gone before it, sporting softer rounded edges as opposed to sharp corners. Barely larger than a business card in width and height it slots comfortably into any trouser or shirt pocket. Official dimensions are 95.4x56x20.6mm and it weighs a mere 135g. Thanks to being fashioned from aluminium, the IXUS 140’ body feels solid yet lightweight when held in the palm.
Excerpt: The Canon IXUS 140 is a digital camera which features built-in Wi-Fi, allowing you to transfer images to iOS and Android devices, or upload directly to social networks such as Facebook. It also has an 8x optical zoom lens and 16 megapixel sensor, available for £159.00.
Pros: Built-in Wi-Fi, Images have excellent colours, Minimum focusing distance of just 1cm, Compact, metal body, 8x optical zoom
Cons: Lacks full HD video recording, Continuous shooting is slow, Poor noise performance from ISO 800 upwards
