"Canon IXUS 105 review"

Firstly I'd like to start with that I think this is a great little camera for its price range. I bought it to use on weekends away and for leisure purposes and for me it has been perfect. It is very easy to use and gives very good image quality. I have the Black version which i think looks great and is pretty stylish although i noticed advertised that you can get it in a few different colours too.
The face detection system intergrated is a nice feature and the auto flash seems to work when i require it or not at the right times. There are various different shooting modes that you can play around with to produce different styles of photos and also the movie recording feature is alot more smooth and fluid than ive seen on other cameras and also there is a youtube feature included which meakes uploading movies alot easier.

The wide lens is perfect for shooting landscape panoramas and the optical zoom feature really suprised me about had well you could pick out details at great distances.
The LCD screen on the back of the camera for viewing your photos before uploading them is very clear and has great colours.

The batteries on the camera last great, alot better than any camera ive had in the past. I am still discovering alot of the features of this camera of which there are many and fortunatly they're all well described in the manual.
To summarise I'd say this is an ideal camera to use for leisure purposes and trips away where you may take a few photos to enjoy uploading to your computer easily to enjoy later and for the price it is great!

    Not too far from an H rating; just needs a little more attention to detail.
