“Exellent Snapper from Canon”

published 10/09/2007

ProLooks Good, Impossibly Small, Great results

ConsNo viewfinder, Manual on Disk

Working close to Manchester City Centre I always like to have a camera with me as there is always something going on and even even the odd actor to be seen. The problem though is that while my trusted Sony W1 is a great camera it is a little bulky to put in my pocket. Recently I was lucky enough...

ConsSlow shutter lag

I'm in love with this camera- my husbands borrowed it for an airshow today and i feel like ive got a limb missing! LOOKS Very very stylish. About the same size as a mobile phone- in fact, mine has been mistaken for one a few times. Mine is purple but it comes in other colours too, including black...

ConsHas to be charged in dock

A fantastic camera that has served me well for over a year now (and seems to have retained its value as I bought it for £180 last year)! There are many things that make this a great camera - first of all it is available in many different colours and is ultra-slim and small in width, fitting into...

Proease of use, compact size, great features

Consa bit pricey at launch

Having been really disappointed with the previous digital camera I had (Fuji s5000), I was somewhat reluctant to go an buy another. However, when I bought this little beauty, I am glad I did. The price was a little on the high side at the time, and the 5 MP would be fairly low end compared to...

I've had this Canon Digital IXUS I Zoom for 4 years now and it has been nothing but pleasure using it. I want the next camera similar to this one, only faster and better startup time and between the shots time.

ProSmall, compact and lightweight.

ConsSize of memory card shipped with it

This is one of the first proper digital cameras I have owned and its is perfect for travelling with, being small and compact its lightweight enough to keep in a pocket or hang around your neck. The cradle for uploading/charging is small enough to not get in the way on any computer desk. Although...
