Summary: I purchased this camera based on its outstanding history and track record for being a very good device. Yes its older, but works better than many new and more expensive units ive bought. The only drawback- the Memory card and needing a card reader to transfer the pictures to the PC. yes it has a cable port but only one end is usb into the PC to the camera is some odd type of connecter- so typical usb cables dont work. Thants the only negative I can say.
Excerpt: Perfect beginner's Ixus - fabulous images, robust construction, reasonably cheap second-hand. I still get great shots with the Ixus v and heartily recommend this and the v2 to people who don't know what they want but want to get started properly. The power consumption and speed are much better than its predecessor, the original Ixus (S100). Problems: Interface is not as good as the Ixus v2. That's no reason to pass it by.
Excerpt: Well-built, fine pictures. My first digicam, donated to a relative after 2 years/3500 pics. After 4 years of (ab)use on 5 continents, this camera is still going strong, highlighting its exceptional build quality. Its pictures are very balanced and pleasant, even by late 2005 standards. Its 2MP sensor seems to have lower noise than newer, higher resolution ones with tight pixel pitch.
Summary: We also use an SLR and wanted the digital to replace our point-and-shoot, especially for a new baby with all of our family out of state. We picked this model for its size, the proprietary rechargable battery system, the optical zoom and resolution, and its ability to interface with Mac computers. We are very happy with its performance in all these respects.
Excerpt: My first camera and I love it. Camera is still kicking after a year or more of heavy use. Granted you are doing any photo shoots for a magazine cover with this camera but I took some nice shots of family and friends that are still up on there frames. So for the fun family and friend shooter this is your camera, and for the public safety community perfect sized camera for your shirt pocket. Tough camera that still is kicking.
Excerpt: I've loved this camera ever since I've had it. It takes very fine pictures, and is very small, light, and easy to hold. It's got many features, such as lighting controls, macro-mode, scene mode, movie taking with sound (even though you can't preview the sound directly on the camera), and many more things and settings for people who enjoy playing around with these types of things.
Excerpt: Hi, no discussion, the camera is very nice. After one yaer I took probably 8000 photos in total ... :-) However, there is on problem annoying me a lot: Problems: By time the viewfinder got dirty (50% of the time the camera is in my pocket) and, obviously, the internal of the camera as well. - Did anybody tried to open the camera just to clean? If so, what do I have to look forward, are there any difficulties during cleaning?
Excerpt: 1. Nice video mode. Produces the best mini clips I've seen 2. Quick to startup/shutdown 3. Good AF lamp 4. nice design Problems: 1. low ISO (you can't take good pics at night) 2. red-eye reduction is totally wrong. Unless of course you aim the peoples eyes with the af lamp, or if they are looking directly at it.
Excerpt: This is my first Digital Camera and Im very pleased with my selection, Its small enough to carry around in my pocket and one of my favorite features is the stitching of several photos together to make one panoramic view.
