Summary: The IXUS 140 HS at its modest price tag also snags the award for being the slimmest camera with an optical 8x zoom. The camera does come with a plastic build, but it feels rather good quality. The small 1/2.3-inch sensor does botch the details, which you will notice if you view your images at 100%, but for small prints and web view, the quality is absolutely fine.
Pros: Extremely slim form factor, Time from off to shooting is very low, Wi-Fi on a budget
Cons: Auto-P Toggle switch is poorly built, Buttons slightly hard to press, Only 720p video, No physical Delete button
Excerpt: Budget point-and-shoot cameras are facing tough times from the ever increasing abilities of smartphone cameras, but if there's any compact camera that can still cut it in this cut-throat sector, it's likely to be from the successful Canon IXUS range.

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
Excerpt: Fazit: Canon bietet mit der Ixus 140 eine gewohnt schicke Kamera, die im Test für Schnappschüsse ausreichend schnell reagiert. Mit WLAN verfügt die Ixus über die Kamera-Trend-Technologie des Jahres, kann über Funk aber nur Bilder übertragen und lässt keine Fernsteuerung zu. Die Bildqualität leidet unter dem Wechsel zu einem CCD-Bildsensor. Uns fällt zu viel Bildrauschen und eine mäßige Auflösungsleistung auf.
