Excerpt: I previously owned a Canon IXUS II, a 3.2 Mega pixel camera which I used to take over 3000 quality pictures. I upgraded to the IXUS 50 after reading a review. I have to say that I'm disappointed. This Canon IXUS camera is incapable of taking good indoor or evening pictures.
Summary: This is an awesome camera. Good quality pictures, fast shutter speed, neat features, compact design. I loved it while it lasted. Too bad I can't comment about the battery life, because it stopped working on its first recharge cycle. The problem is that it is fragile.
Summary: After owning an original S100 Digital Elph for several years, I finally decided to upgrade to the SD400, expecting big improvements. After several months with the SD400, I have concluded that it was a waste of money because I have yet to realize any true advantages over the S100, and there are even...
Summary: This camera is compact and lightweight. It takes good photo's in daylight. However a word of warning: It is absolutely useless when the flash is in use. Even though the camera can be set to prevent red-eye, it just does not work.
Summary: The problem with this camera is that it is it so small you tend to take it anywhere, put it in your pocket and forget about it. The next thing is that you have got sand in the mechanism and £120 and one month later you get a fix.
Summary: Great camera but do not use this camera outside. I bought my Ixus at the end of July and it broke down by the end of September. I sent it off to the recommended Canon repairer who estimated that it would cost £90 to remove the sand that was preventing the lens from opening.
Summary: I bought this camera on review recommendation, it is a lovely small size and the pictures are excellent quality. However before you go and buy this (or any other Canon digital camera) put "Canon E18" into Google and see what comes up.
