Canon IXUS 220 HS – Style Redefined
3 February 2014
Summary: The Canon IXUS 220 HS is priced at Rs. 14,995 and offers good value for money. Performance coupled with good looks makes this camera a worth buy. With a bundle of features in it, the IXUS 220 HS is something that should not be overlooked, if you want a compact point and shoot camera.
Summary: The ELPH 300 HS / IXUS 220 HS has become the best-selling point-and-shoot camera in Canon's 2011 range for good reason. It delivers a canny balance of a decent lens range in a slim package at an affordable price. Yes there are models with longer zooms, but they're more expensive and typically larger too.
But don't let the price fool you.
Pros: Super-slim stylish compact design., 24mm equivalent wide angle., 1080p24 movie mode., Scene mode movies and super slo mo., Excellent image quality.
Cons: Relatively small 2.7inch screen., Lengthy linear exposure mode menu.
Pros: Totally pocketable, Attractive, solid-feeling metal body, True wide-angle 5x zoom lens with optical image stabilization, 1080p full HD video, Tracking auto focus works well, Nice image quality for a super compact camera, Smart Auto and 32 scene modes for point-and-shoot photographers
Cons: Limited controls won’t be good for everyone, Tends to blow out highlight details in outdoor photos, 5x zoom lens doesn’t offer great telephoto reach
Summary: However, users at Amazon.com say that the chassis dings easily, while critics are lukewarm about the sandpaper-like body finish and 2.7-inch LCD, which is smaller than the 3-inch screen on the Canon PowerShot Elph 100 HS. Nevertheless, the 300 HS nails excellent ratings overall from reviewers, who say it's a keeper. We found the most comprehensive reviews of the Canon PowerShot Elph 300 HS at PCMag.com and CNET, which conduct lab tests that show how the 300 HS stacks up...
Pros: Extremely compact, Full HD (1080p) video capabilities, Optical zoom lens works in video mode, Excels in low-light situations, HDMI port for TV playback, Lots of automatic features
Cons: Rough body finish, Fragile chassis, Small 2.7-inch LCD, Tedious menu, Weak flash
Excerpt: Between the Powershot ELPH 100 HS and the 500 HS, the Canon Powershot ELPH 300 HS is the mid-range model of their new ELPH HS series. The 300 HS is being touted by Canon as the world's thinnest 24mm, 5x optical zoom digital camera with Optical Image Stabilizer. It also sports the 12.1-Megapixel High Sensitivity CMOS sensor that allows for low-light pictures without the need for a flash.
Conclusion: Canon IXUS 220 HS: VerdictIt is rare to find a compact camera, especially one that docks in at under £200 that seemingly ticks all the boxes. Yet the Canon IXUS 220 HS is perhaps proof that such a device does exist. Users of every level will undoubtedly find the unit easy to use, whilst providing an abundance of creative options to keep photographers of every skill level entertained.
Summary: The Canon Powershot ELPH 300 HS is a very good camera that is reasonably priced. It has solid build quality except for the occasional problem (poorly attached port cover, flash location). Its ergonomics are excellent and I found it to be a pleasure to use.
Pros: Excellent ergonomics, Instant startup, High quality video
Cons: Poorly attached port cover, Flash is inconveniently located, Occasional overexposure
