"Canon Digital IXUS 65"

It's a great little device with plenty of features that I would highly recommend. This really is a wonderful piece of kit that should go well with many accessories because it really looks good.

However, always think carefully as to whether you actually really need something before you buy it. We buy so many things nowadays that we don't really need.

    I'm looking for a camera for my mum and although you provide all the relevant technical details, I feel your review lacks the personal, every day user info that could help me decide if this would be suitable for a non-technically minded mother.

    good review i am currently looking for a camera but dont think this one is for me.

    Sounds like it could be what I'm after. Not sure I will be that bothered about the optical view finder as long as the view finder works in sunlight. Rich

The screen's wide viewing angle allows for easy group viewing. Quick-bright gives instant screen brightness in outdoor conditions. Night Display mode improves visibility after dark. An Ultra-High Refractive Index Aspherical (UA) 3x optical zoom lens helps deliver crystal-clear performance in an exceptionally compact form. Canon's DIGIC II processor ensures fast, responsive camera performance and superb image processing. iSAPS technology analyzes each scene to optimize key camera settings even before a shot is taken. Choose from 16 shooting modes to get that perfect shot. Special Scene modes such as Beach and Underwater help with tricky lighting conditions. My Colors allows special in-camera color effects to be applied both before and after shooting.
