Summary: Unfortunately, this wonderful camera is marred with one main fault, it is designed to have some of the best optics for its truly small size, this is wonderful, however, the engineering of the mechanical components no longer meets the high standards that Canons have been known for in the past. I am satisfied with Canon's warrantee service, but it should be sturdier, given the price... and...
Pros: Wonderful pictures in nearly any conditions as well as great warranty service, that was unfortunately necessary when lens stuck at full zoom. The size is
Cons: It is super fragile. I am rather careful with almost everything I own, however, the camera 'turned on' and extended lens while in small camera case. Luckily explained this to tech dept. at Canon... and they agreed that it should have had a safety mechanism to stop it from doing this, because it jammed the zoom mechanism. Replaced free... but still has no safety mechanism to prevent this.
Summary: bought this camera now knowing exactly what to expect, but I love it. I take amazing pictures for a digital camera. the auto setting is very accurate as well. I recommend this produce for sure for anyone who wants a digital small camera that captures colour very well
Excerpt: "A brilliant camera! I'm only an amateur so i don't know too much about brilliant cameras, but to me, this camera is everything I need. I've had this camera for six months now and haven't had any problems with it. It's a great size, not too big, not too small, so fits nicely in a pocket for travelling or trips, and is also very light weight. It has a lot of useful effects including a slow motion movie setting which I had fun discovering. There are ...
Pros: Easy to use, light weight and great photo quality
Cons: The quality of the slow motion movie setting isn't great
Summary: Was unlucky to get a terrible example of this camera. First impressions good. Took great shots indoors, much brighter than my previous panasonic. Unfortunately outdoors there was terrible corner softness on wide angle and lots of chromatic aberation. Results were closer to a mobile phone than the panasonic. Was also very noisy on video when zooming. Reading some forums I found that they are built in two places. China and Japan.
Excerpt: Раньше был фотоаппарат Canon IXUS 85iS - был им очень доволен. Поэтому новый решил брать той же линейки IXUS в том же магазине. Первое подозрение возникло когда продавец сказал, что на них есть жалобы. Потом он поправился - сказал что это на другую модель Канон. В итоге я всё же купил IXUS 230 HS и ... мучаюсь с ним до сих пор. Качество изображения по сравнению со старой моделью намного хуже, хотя по характеристикам должно быть наоборот! Никакие настройки не помагают.
Pros: компактный, цена, хорошее видео, понятный
Cons: Некачественные фотографии, звук на видео очень-очень тихий
