Excerpt: The Canon IXUS 140 HS happens to be the slimmest 8x optical zoom (28-224mm f/3.2-6.9) camera in the world, or so Canon claims. Armed with a 16 megapixel sensor and a Digic 4 processor, the IXUS 140 HS does seem to hold promise, especially seeing just how slim it is.
Summary: Stylish, slim and connected, the 16 megapixel IXUS 140 from Canon is a capable camera available with built-in Wi-Fi and Intelligent IS. A perfect pocketable camera, Canon IXUS 140 comes packed with desirable features but suffers in comparison to expensive sibling.
Pros: Includes Wi-Fi , Light and small , Excellent color reproduction , Good image quality
Cons: Poor noise at ISO 800 , Lacks full HD video recording
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.
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.
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.
