Summary: I got the blue version and I have to say it's a looker all right. Not seen any other digital camera's from various companies on the market that look good as the Canon IXUS 500 HS. The camera quality is great and you have a lot of features to tweak in the settings.
Excerpt: The opening in the lens of a camera which controls the amount of light falling on the image sensor is called aperture. On this camera an aperture control with a range of f/3.4 to f/6.3 is possible.
Excerpt: The only downside to this camera is that when you require professional or even semi professional features for photography, this camera will lose out. This is because this camera has been specially designed for use by amateurs and has limited features which work great with casual and amateur...
Excerpt: What appealed to me most about this camera was the appearance. The rectangular shape of the IXUS 500 has been designed using the golden mathematical ratio of 1: 1.618 that has inspired many architects and artists over ages.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Small / Compact
Summary: Arrived on time and has very good features for such a small device. Still getting used to it but so far so good. Onle downside is there is no paper instruction manual and you need to buy a memory card seperately
