  • 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.

  • 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 e...
  • 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.

Canon Ixus 300 HS review

25 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Ixus cameras are undeniably sleek, but comparisons with Canon’s own PowerShot range risks exposing them as an exercise in style over substance. This latest model aims to quell such aspersions with generous helpings of both.

  • Conclusion: The Canon IXUS 300 HS impresses in a number of areas. These include design and build quality. There are one or two issues with picture quality when the camera is pushed to its limits. These stop me from awarding this camera an outstanding rating, but it is still a solid offering from Canon.
  • Pros: Design - LCD screen - features for a pocket camera - movie mode
  • Cons: Sharpness issue when lens zoomed out - Shutter delay with flash

PC Advisor
17 August 2010
  • Summary: As an everyday, pocketable point-and-shoot camera that offers some manual controls and stellar image quality, the Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS gets our wholehearted recommendation.

  • Conclusion: In general, while the IXUS 300 HS offers impressive low light performance and creative control of settings for the artistic shooter, Canon doesn’t seem to have pushed the boat out enough to justify its premium price.
