The Ixus 400 is about the best of the point & press style digital cameras that I've found.

For a reasonable price, you can still have the compatability and user friendliness of the compact flash cards, while providing some of the best pixel rates in the market segment.

Others (like the fuji) claim a higher pixel count but this is achieved through software smoothing rather than image capture.

All in all - very good value for money.

Pity it does not come with a carry case as the metalwork gets scuffed realitively easily. The charging pack is also a bit of a pain and would be better if it could be integrated in the camera unit.

At least it looks and feels like a camera and you can handle it in the same way as you would do with a film loaded snapshot camera.

I agree with em, you really need a lot more detail to get a higher rating...try including a description of the features, cost, picture quality, software needed, etc etc. If you update, let me know and I will happily re-rate, Take care, Dave
