Summary: wish there were more printed instructions on use. when using the cd you have to remember and when out cannot recall instructions. haven't found my way round it all yet after two weeks daily use. otherwise ok.
Summary: I purchased this camera recently because it has a great many features. Unfortunately and reluctantly, I had to return it. I am in my senior years, and found holding and operating it uncomfortable and somewhat difficult, as smaller, more delicate hands are required in use. So I opted for a different camera, which although larger had similar attributes. The CanonIXUS 240 is truly great, well manufactured and easy to carry around, but not suitable for me.
Stunning Value, small, neat and very smooth pictures

Summary: Tiny, with good features including the WiFi. Although 16 megapixels is beyond the optical performance, compared with other similar Canon cameras of three or four years ago, this is smoother and less grainy. Setting up the WiFi is a pain, as with most consumer products at this stage. For the money, I would trade any small low cost (i.e under £250) which is more than two or three years old, for this as it represents a new level of performance at a low price.
Summary: This Camera is very good value for money and is a lovely camera, easy to use and very easy to carry, it has everything one needs in a camera and is very versatile to say the least. Having 16.1 MP and 5x Zoom what more do you need at the Party, Beach, Restaurant, or on a City Tour, ideal for any person and as good as the professional Cameras with long Lenses!
Summary: I tend to take views rather than people and found this camera idea. I had an old version of this camera and after dropping it in a loch in Scotland some years ago it responded well but in the end the battery gave out. I replaced it with another well known brand which was rubbish and then again with an even more well known brand which again was not brilliant. This one works fine. Battery life seems much longer. The quality of landscape photos is excellent in sunlight.
Summary: Unbeatable value. Stylish and colourful. The ixus is a fashion item. Loving it! Light and small - easy to carry around. Looks good, feels good, sturdy. Lots of functions, including Wi fi. Customisable – even the colour of the menus. Impressive lens – wide angle for photos of groups of friends in room corners. Clear, sharp, bright images. User guide is easy to understand, lots of pictures. Decent, useful software for PC or Mac. Cons.
A superb camera that is compact yet has very high performance - except for its low battery life.

Summary: Most of my thoughts are in my headline. The high resolution allows the clarity of photographs taken from a good distance to be maintained when zoomed to high magnification. I am not used to that from a pocket camera. Unfortunately, the battery life does let this product down. I shall always carry a second battery.
Summary: 4.5 stars. Great little camera, lovely colour. easy to use, even though it didn't have an instructions manual. it has some fun effects and the touch screen is good too. it does great motion shots, took some of my dog running and they are very clear. the delivery was very fast (next day). would recommend to a friend.
Summary: What a great little camera, touch screen works well and there are some excellent features, soft focus, colour hues etc. wi-fi syncing seems to work a treat too. Excellent quality pictures. Very pleased.
