Love everything about it except the image quality
31 December 2010
Summary: This is a great little camera if you don't care about image quality. The touch screen is great. The camera is very small and compact. We love everything about it except the images it takes. We were trying to replace our 6 megapixel Olympus camera we bought several years ago.
Summary: I've wanted to replace my old Sony Digital camera for a while now, after thorough research and reading tons of both professional and consumer reviews I decided to buy this camera, I wanted a no brainer point and shoot camera for me and my wife to use with our kids.
Summary: I purchased this camera replacing a lost Nikon boasting similar resolution and expected similar photo quality. The touch screen interface for the camera will absolutely blow you away but unfortunately, the image quality is just not up to the same level.
Summary: The touch screen is pretty cool, as well as the tap-to-focus feature. But the image quality is just unacceptable. All you will see is those coarse grains everywhere in your photo, even under bright light and lowest ISO settings...It is not worth for that much money.
Summary: This camera has an absolutely mesmerizing touch screen that will immediately seduce you. But while Canon chose to innovate in this area, the rest of the camera falls far short of the quality they've been known for. The camera boasts 14.1 MP and an ability to shoot "HD" video at 1280 x 720.
Excerpt: Quick specification list: - 24mm wide lens and 5x optical zoom - 3.5" LCD - SD card slot - lithium ion battery Like virtually all cameras of this generation, the ixus 210 has no viewfinder (if this is something you want - have a look at the ixus 100, but be warned that they won't be around for much...
Pros: large screen, looks nice, decent image quality in most situations, good noise at high ISO's
Cons: touch screen is irritating, options are all menu based - not quick, flash noisy, expensive
Summary: So it takes reasonably good pictures. All Canons will do that. The troubles I found with the camera, but especially the touchscreen, were: 1 Finding your way around. Despite other reviewers, I found it confusing. The 'manual' wasn't much help.
Summary: an upgrade from the Ixus 75. Looks good but fails to take quick pictures of the kids. They always turn out blurred. particularly in lower light conditions. Not impressed. Touch screen is annoying. Lets upgrade for the sake of it - erh no... no improvement.. feel conned to be honest.
Summary: I bought this camera to upgrade my Ixus 400 which I've had for 7 years. The picture quality isn't nearly as good dispite an increase from 4 to 10 mega-pixels. I've tried numerous adjustments to the settings in addition to using the Auto mode but I still can't get the quality of picture I'd expect...
Summary: I bought this with reservations about the touchscreen technology but it is actually fine and works well, although I do prefer buttons. My issues are: 1. There is an unpredicable time delay when taking photos.
