  • Conclusion: Canon Digital IXUS 65 digital camera Canon has unleashed a revolution with the Digital IXUS series of cameras. It began with APS, and after several years in digital form. The concept has been copied many times, but never equalled. Canon is continuing on the road to success with the Canon Digital IXUS 65. It is not just one of the most attractive digital compact cameras currently on the market; it is also an excellent digital camera.

Canon IXUS 65 / "Popolnost" v žepu

e-Fotografija
7 August 2006
  • Excerpt: Kamera IXUS se predstavi leta 1996 , ko so podjetja Canon , Fujifilm, Kodak, Minolta in Nikon 22. aprila tega leta predstavila novi foto sistem, APS. Novi format filma in posebnega naèina prenosa filma je omogoèal narediti za tiste èase res majhen kompakt z zoom objektivom. Anekdota pravi, da tedanji predsednik podjetja Canon niti ni imel fotokamere. V tistem èasu fotografija ni bila tako množièna in foto oddelek je pomenil samo cca 25% prodaje podjetja.

  • Excerpt: The PowerShot SD630 ($399) is another member of Canon's popular line of ultra-compact digital cameras. The SD630 shares much in common with the SD600, with the major difference being its large 3-inch LCD display. Both cameras have 3X zoom lenses, a 6MP CCD, point-and-shoot operation, and a VGA movie mode.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality (though see issues below), Huge 3-inch LCD; screen is easily viewable in low light, Compact and stylish metal body, Very good performance, AF-assist lamp, Four-way controller doubles as scroll wheel in playback mode (though it's too small in my opinion), Very good movie and continuous shooting modes (though see issue below), Unique My Colors, focus point review features, USB 2.0 High Speed support
  • Cons: Some corner softness and vignetting; redeye is a problem, Below average battery life, No optical viewfinder, Can only record about 8 minutes of VGA video due to 1GB file size limit, More manual controls would be nice, Can't swap memory cards while camera is on a tripod, Flimsy cover over memory card/battery compartment, Tiny memory card included

  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot SD630 Digital ELPH took the SD600's 6 megapixels, 3x optical zoom and other features and threw in a larger 3 inch LCD and touch-control dial. The SD630's new, bigger LCD has very low resolution for a 3 inch LCD: just 173,000 pixels. The resolution is visibly low but thankfully, the LCD is usable, even in low-light. The Canon SD630 also features a decent movie mode, recording VGA movies at 30 FPS.
  • Pros: Fairly powerful flash, Large visible LCD, Fast, unlimited continuous shooting, Excellent movie mode, Improved user interface, My Colors post-processing can be done in playback, Good high ISO performance (some post-processing may be required, though), Very good photo quality
  • Cons: Battery life is below average, No manual controls, LCD is not that sharp, Red-eye, Large movie file sizes and cannot optical zoom or focus when recording, Fairly high noise at ISO 800 (countered by post-processing), Startup and autofocus needs to be faster

Canon PowerShot SD630 Review

Digitaltrends
24 April 2006
  • Conclusion: I really enjoyed shooting with the Canon SD 630 Digital ELPH. It takes very nice photos with colors that are spot on. The compact camera feels right and can be easily carried for the spur of the moment snapshots. It’s designed for the point-and-shoot crowd or someone who just wants a shade more options in their photographic arsenal. Anyone who wants to adjust the aperture or shutter speed should look elsewhere.
  • Pros: Compact; high-quality 6MP digicam with 3x optical zoom; 3-inch LCD screen
  • Cons: Limited manual adjustments
