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.
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.
Summary: Bottom line is this has been a really good little camera for me. This was my first digital camera and I was really surprised such good picture quality could come from such a small camera. I print photo quality 8x10s all the time. Favorite features are: (1) Size - fits is my shirt/pants pocket (2) Picture Quality (3) Styling - always get complements when I whip it out.
Summary: Bought it nearly 2 years ago to replace my aging Canon Z115 (Film). To date its survived travel through countless airports, spent months at sea (I'm in the Navy), been dragged up Mt. Fuji and a handful of other mountains in my back pocket. The thing is so small I notice it less than my wallet. Its been slamed, droped, x-rayed, super heated in my car's cupholder on many occasions. Once I almost put it through the washing machine.
Summary: The main attraction of this camera is size - it's tiny. Of course, with the small size you give up lots of features contained on similar cameras. Because of the small lens and limited ISO setting it only takes pictures in well lit locations. The flash is too small to be effective for more than a few feet. This is not an available light camera but once outdoors in sunshine or well lit scenes this little camera takes awesome pictures.
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.
Summary: I have had this camera for a year now and it has been one of the best things I have bought. I have taken many photo's of the kids and they have printed beautifully. I really like the software - its easy to use. Other reviewers have had issues with the battery - mine lasts for ages but I don't use the LCD too much to review my shots.
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?
