Summary: I used to have an older version of this camera, which I got on very well with, but the lens became stuck and then it was useless - actually that has happened to me twice now. So I thought I would buy a more modern version. Well sadly I do not like it at all. It has a touch screen, with really complicated information and I am constantly finding myself with some weird configuration that takes me ages to unscramble or I just have to switch off and start again.
Summary: I own a few Canon cameras (SLR and compact) and love them all. Not this one... This has been something of a disappointment (I've owned it a year now). The quality is not appreciably better than my old 7MP Ixus and the functionality is a pain in the ****! The touchscreen is temperamental, the menu never seems the same twice (hard to quickly access the necessary section) and the battery life is atrocious. It also has wi-fi capability but this has never worked.
Summary: takes really nice pictures, lovely looking and very compact. The only problem I have with it is that it takes a few seconds from pressing the button to actually taking the photograph -annoying, especially when you are trying to photograph your kids!
Summary: Having had the previous Cannon model which was brilliant and easy to use, I had decided to upgrade and bought this touch screen model. Not touch screen friendly, menu confusing, photos are a rubbish quality and it takes ages to find the right setting. I would not go for a touch screen camera again and have reverted back to my old camera.
Summary: I chose it because i felt i was sleek . When the product arrived it ffelt that it had been tampered with since the camera had no screen cover. I also noticed finger marks on the lens. It is not as good as i thought.
Summary: A nice camera to use generally and looks good. However it is frustratingly slow. It is slow to shoot and therefore useless for action shots, also you have to wait an age after a picture has been taken before you can take the next one. Also the wireless facility simply does not function. I haven't read a single review that says this works.
Summary: When taking pictures, I like this camera. The screen is easy to see, zoom is quiet and it takes the picture well. I'm pleased with every photo I've taken, ranging from close up to stickers to record the serial numbers, or zoomed in shots of aircraft at Duxford IWM hangar. I do find that the screen has to be pressed quite hard - if you're used to modern smart phones and the light touch they need then this screen seems a bit unresponsive.
Summary: The camera is described as with Wi-Fi. As far as I can see it is not with Wi-Fi. You have to spend another £50 - £80 to buy the correct eyefi sd card before the Wi-Fi will work. Very, very disappointed. Trade descriptions act? I feel conned!
Summary: Hallo, ich habe mir die IXUS 240 HS vor einigen Monaten als mobilen Ersatz für meine EOS angeschafft. Das diese Kamera die EOS nicht ersetzen kann ist mir klar. Nach mehreren Testaufnahmen mit „allen“ Einstellungsvarianten musste ich leider feststellen, dass diese Kamera einfach nicht zu gebrauchen ist. Hohes Bildrauschen und Unschärfe im Randbereich sind erschreckend. Die preiswertere Olympus von meiner Frau macht deutlich bessere Aufnahmen!
