Summary: I've taken it out with me just about everywhere. It works great. The pictures are good. The only problems I've had are with red eye inside and some blurriness on a few occasions. I think I was shaking a little on those. The red eye just might be because I didn't have the red eye reduction turned on.
Summary: I purchased this camera to replace a Pentax Optio 330 which got wet and died. This is a nice little camera, much smaller than the small Pentax that it replaced. It takes very nice pictures. The LCD screen is nice and bright, but beware - it scratches easily.
Summary: This was my first foray into a digital camera that came with much dismay about whether to finally take the plunge. Having been a long time Canon 35mm owner, I looked at this and many other options. This camera has been a great find.
Summary: Purchased this camera two weeks ago and am delighted. Great quality pictures and video. It is true that you really do need to read the instructions, but even playing with the knobs and dials on this little wonder is educational and it is not difficult to figure out most things.
Summary: SD300 is the latest Elph from Canon. It is slimmer and loaded with more features than ever before. Pro's, 1. Good picture quality for a super-compact camera. 2. Priced right. 3. Excellent feature set. 4. Large LCD screen. 5. Cool metallic body. 6. Excellent package including a smart world charger.
Summary: Handling: The interface is similar to that in other Canon digital compacts, which helps your learning curve. The case is in metal, except the USB and the battery cover. They are both made of plastic and feel very fragile. The metal tripod mount is located closely below the lens.

Excerpt: I previously had a canon V2 which was fatastic but resolution was the only downpoint. The canon ixus 40 has all the plus points of of the V2 but with a great resolution. Cameras these days have much higher resolutions, but to be honest your never going to visibly see the difference in quality unless...
Pros: small, easy to use, good resolution
Cons: flash can still be improved, screen can get scratched easily .
Summary: I very much doubt that there is a better 4MP camera on the market than the Canon Ixus 40. Ok, it is pretty old now and perhaps if I were a richer man I would have splashed out for the Ixus 55, but I'm not, so I didn't.
