Gets the award for long service

AdvantagesHas given us nine years of good service

DisadvantagesNot the best quality images and showing its age

Excellent quality camera for a great price

AdvantagesSmall, easy to use, battery charges out of camera

DisadvantagesNo case provided

"...reviews, I decided that the Canon IXUS 400 was a good product that suited my needs, the only problem was that if I was going to invest in a new digital camera, I felt that I should go for 5MP. This is when I noticed that Canon had brought out the IXUS 500 the big brother of the 400. The book price for this little gem was around £400, but a search around the web found it available for £298 (pixmania). I decided that before I made my purchase, I ..." Read review

A great little workhorse camera

AdvantagesCamera has a small footprint, is packed with features and has a quality feel about it

DisadvantagesYou probably need to increase the memory card and buy a case for it

"...card. I bought the Canon Case which was available as an option when I bought the camera but it wasn't cheap at £30!! I was worried because I have large fingers and find some mobile phones difficult if the buttons are small and close together. I have not had any problems with any of the functions everything is intuative. I never read the instructions for anything. I have managed to take hundreds of pictures so far without once referring to the manual. Both ..." Read review

Simply perfection - Ixus 500

AdvantagesThis baby has everything! Best camera on market!

Disadvantagesquite bulky

"...buy cheaper ones than the Canon IXUS 500 but you won't fall in love with it. Sorry for sounding so patronising but it really is the best camera on the market by far. It's amazingly simple to use with very simple buttons, and menus. The battery lasts ages and the picture quality it produces is better than some professional Photo shops I've been to! It's a 5megapixel camera which means it can capture 5,000,000 pixels. So the resolution is going ..." Read review

Great stylish pocket size camera

AdvantagesBeautiful pictures, solidly built, pocket size.

DisadvantagesE40, Battery life.

"With canon now being a market leader in digital cameras and the IXUS range being one of their top achievers its not suprising they hit the mark with the IXUS 500. Straight out of the box, having charged the battery the camera was giving me great pictures with the controls being extremely easy to use. On first glance that camera is very attractive with its all-metal body that both gives the camera a stylish look and provides plenty of protection ..." Read review

Product Information for "Canon Digital IXUS 500" »

Manufacturer's product description

The ultimate in stylish, high performance digital photography, the Digital IXUS 500 delivers quality prints up to A3 size. With a super hard Cerabrite finish, this flagship of the IXUS range brings together uncompromising build quality and an abundance of integrated technologies in a triumph of miniaturization. A 3x optical zoom culminates 60 years of Canon optical heritage to deliver crisp, corner-to-corner clarity. A 3x optical zoom (12.3x combined) offers a wide angle of coverage, while the 9-point AiAF ensures accurate focusing, even with off-center subjects. High performance demands plenty of processing power - which is why the Digital IXUS 500 incorporates Canon's dedicated DIGIC processor. DIGIC delivers superb image quality at high speed with less drain on the battery for extended performance. iSAPS is a hidden photographer's assistant, instantly analyzing the scene and making adjustments even before the shutter release is pressed. iSAPS optimizes exposure, white balance and auto-focus settings in every shooting situation for consistently brilliant results. An Intelligent Orientation Sensor automatically rotates images before playback. Movie mode allows up to 3-minute movie clips (30 seconds in VGA mode) with sound recording, playback and 'in-camera' editing. Auto mode is perfect for 'point and shoot' situations, while Manual mode puts you in creative control. An optional waterproof case protects your IXUS to a depth of 40m. The camera prints directly to all PictBridge or Canon Direct Print compatible printers. Create beautiful, instant photo prints by connecting camera to printer and pushing the Print/Share button, which also speeds up online sharing to any Windows PC. When used with a Canon Compact Photo Printer, you can print ID photos, or a series of movie clip frames. With Canon's ZoomBrowser EX (for Windows) and ImageBrowser (for Macintosh) you can arrange albums, crop photographs and adjust image contrast and brightness.
