I have bought THREE of these cameras
25 October 2008
Summary: This is the THIRD camera I have purchased of this model. I researched digital cameras for several weeks and decided that this was the best model in the range that I could afford. With the first camera that I received from amazon, the screen was unbearably blurry.

Summary: This was my first CANON purchased back in 3/08 and just got the dreaded lens error today. The lens will not retract nor focus anymore. I figured I couldn't miss with a name brand like CANON, plus I'm the type who is very careful with cameras.
Kinda BIG, no Zoom during video but 28mm rare WIDE

Summary: Former professional photographer here. THe only reason to get this camera (vs other Canon cameras) is if you understand the uniqueness of a wide angle. That extra 28 vs 35 is a HUGE difference when indoors taking photos of friends, or taking landscape. You get 30% more into the shot.
Summary: A few months after buying my IXUS860 it stopped taking sharp pictures and I recieved various error message like lens failure, etc. The lens kept on getting stuck and the pictures were blurred.
Summary: The camera is very good at taking photos BUT I did not use it very much and switched it on only to find it would not work. LENS ERROR restart camera. Pressing the on switch just repeated the error. Searching the web I found it is a too common fault with this camera Canon is not interested.
Summary: First of all let me explain I have owned a previous model of Canon IXUS the 50 for nearly two years with out a problem. Upgraded to the IXUS 860 IS three days ago and have already returned it to the shop for a refund.
