Canon Ixus 230 HS review

12 February 2014
  • Conclusion: The Canon Ixus 230 is at the higher end of the compact camera market, costing over £200, but for that outlay you get the option to truly experiment with your shots. This is more than just and point and shoot, handbag cam – although, it does have the slimline charms, lightweight feel and wide choice of colours.
  • Pros: Speedy image capture, Low-light shots, Comprehensive features
  • Cons: Relatively expensive, Complex to use, Minimalist menus

Canon ELPH 310 HS / IXUS 230 HS

Camera Labs
1 November 2011
  • Summary: With an 8x optical zoom in a very compact body stability could be a problem, but Canon has upgraded its optical IS system making it more versatile as well as easier to use. Panning in both landscape and portrait orientations is automatically detected and there's a new Powered IS option for additional stability at the telephoto end of the zoom range while shooting movies.
  • Pros: 8x zoom with intelligent optical stabiliser., Super-slim stylish compact design., 1080p24 movie mode., Creative filter effects.
  • Cons: Lens suffers from chromatic aberration., Lengthy linear exposure mode menu., Poor audio quality on movies.

  • Summary: Building on the success of their PowerShot ELPH 300 HS we reviewed earlier this year, Canon has unveiled the ELPH 310 HS. This unit embraces all that we loved about the 300 HS, like a 12-megapixel CMOS sensor, Canon's HS (High Sensitivity) System, and loads of useful exposure options. However, Canon has added some appealing new upgrades, like a new 8x optical zoom lens with true optical image stabilization, a larger 3.0-inch LCD screen, and six stylish new colors.
  • Pros: Ultra-Compact frame makes it easy to carry with you at all times, Incredibly easy to use, Loaded with useful features, Outstanding image quality, Excellent 1080p HD videos, High quality 3-inch LCD screen, Versatile 8x optical zoom lens with great image stabilization, Better than expected battery life
  • Cons: Can be hard to operate with one hand, Did struggle slightly in high dynamic range situations, Short flash range, We were not able to achieve 3.5fps or 8.7fps using the burst modes

Canon IXUS 230 HS

  • Excerpt: On the front of the Canon IXUS 230 HS is a worthy 8x optical zoom which will bring a lot of generally far away stuff nearer to you. For example, at the Zoo, the animals won't be so far away and it will allow you to crop out crowds or buildings making it look like you've been on a safari. The lens bezel sticks out by a couple of millimetres which makes us wonder if they had put in a 7x zoom, would it be flush?

Canon Ixus 230 HS review

expertreviews.co.uk
11 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Canon's Ixus range of stylish cameras has been firing on all cylinders this year, and it has really hit its stride with the 230 HS. A svelte, luxurious design in a choice of six colours is to be expected, and its gently contoured metal shell (measuring 22mm at its thickest point) slips easily into small pockets. We didn't expect to find an 8x zoom lens in such a slim camera, though.
