ConsNo optical zoom

I've owned my Ixus for about a month now, and have to say I have been impressed by it. I'm not a photography professional by any stretch of the imagination, so this review is based on my own, personal opinion. Appearance The camera comes immaculately presented in a branded box.

ProSize, speed, quality (picture & build)

ConsSize, price, bundled accessories

After much nagging from my boyfriend I finally caved into getting him this camera for his birthday. I must admit, I am very sceptical when it comes to technology, but so far I am quite amazed with the performance from this tiny piece of kit. After convincing me to let him open it four days before...

ProDecent price

ConsNot too many

Amazingly, for such a decent digital camera, the Canon Digital Ixus 400 is offered for sale at Amazon at less than £250 according to Google, although when you click the link, the Amazon says disappointingly, “This item is not in stock or has been discontinued”, although it goes on to offer new...

I must start off by empahisising that this is NOT the best digital camera on the market. For the best quality of picture is does not even come close. Where this camera does win is on its size, convenience and durability. I bought mine a little over a month ago and have already taken over 1000...

ProQuality of photos, features, size, ease of use

ConsSo small you might lose it!

At work we’ve been using a Kodak DC280 for about 3 years. This camera has put in a good service, but after so much use and knocks, it is starting to look a bit worse for wear. Time then for a new digital camera! After some research on various models, we decided to go for the Canon IXUS I camera...

If there is one thing that could make this camera stand out from any other, it must be the size. In something the a little smaller than a packet of cigarettes, it packs so almost all the features of its larger brother the S20, which is 30% bigger... So what can it do?.... Well for starters it...

ProExcellent quality for the price

Cons.

The Canon Digital Ixus is the best digital camera that I have encountered by far. Granted I have not tried all cameras but for the selection I have played with this tops the lot. Its sleek ultra-compact style makes it not just practical but also good to look at. Friends will admire the camera...

ConsOn the pricey side, software could be better

The Canon Digital Ixus camera is awesome because it's absolutely tiny and yet packs in so many functions. The basic functions are easy to use, but some of the more advanced functions are more difficult, just in remembering how to set them. The manual is reasonable and is written in good English...
