  • Summary: A bright, wide-angle lens and a high-sensitivity sensor add up to very good low-light photos and fast performance for the Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS.

  • Summary: The SD4000 IS is born into a long and well-respected line of compact cameras and does its family proud. It offers flexibility, image quality and a good level of user control while remaining distinctly easy to use. Only the screen (large chunks of which are regularly unused), is a disappointment.
  • Pros: Good image quality, particularly at lower ISO settings, Pleasant image color, Reasonable levels of detail (it drops at the long end of the zoom or high ISO), Straightforward control system, Handy zoom range with a fairly fast lens, Fast continuous shooting, Very good battery life, Wide range of extra modes and features (some useful, some fun)
  • Cons: Images don't always stand up to very close scrutiny, Limited control over flash (so you can't prevent the occasional over-exposure), Function menu not as quick to use as previous generations of SD/IXUS

  • Conclusion: Canon's pricey top-of-the-line Elph, the SD4000 IS excels at low-light shooting, but if that's not a top priority, you can get more features for less in competing pocket shooters.
  • Pros: Good image quality. Solid controls. High-quality f/2 lens excels in low-light shooting situations. Aperture and Shutter priority shooting modes. SDXC card support.
  • Cons: Strong color fringing. Small, low-resolution LCD.

  • Conclusion: Canon IXUS 300 HS digital camera review The Canon IXUS 300 HS is an especially fine camera and a valuable addition to the current IXUS series of cameras. The Canon IXUS cameras have actually always been successful, from the first digital IXUS. It is an extensive series of cameras where design always plays an important role. I have always been impressed by the fact that Canon has managed to use their designs for such a long time, while being surprising every time.

  • Summary: In terms of the headline features, the IXUS 300 HS / SD4000 IS is a classy-looking metal-bodied compact with a 3.8x optical range which includes wide-angle coverage, image stabilisation and a brighter than average focal ratio. This coupled with a sensible 10 Megapixel resolution is what's behind the superior low light claims.
  • Pros: Brighter than average lens (at wide angle)., Sensible resolution delivers better low-light results., 720p HD movies and slow motion video at 240fps., Great auto along with Aperture and Shutter Priority., Fast continuous shooting at full resolution.
  • Cons: Compelling rivals at similar price., Best quality 4:3 mode looks small on wide display., Minimal labelling on rear controls., Some focus-drifting in videos under low light.

  • Excerpt: The Canon IXUS 300 HS digital camera is somewhat confusing: the HS at the end of its name denotes neither high speed nor high sensitivity. However, it supports both high-speed video capture and has a high sensitivity lens that allows it to take photos in even very low light. Go figure.
