Canon Digital IXUS 70 Review with images

AdvantagesLoads Of features, Small, very good price

Disadvantages Haven't found any yet

"Canon are very well know for there cameras and always produce very good products. This is no exception and comes with lots of features. It is a 7.1 megapixel digital camera which means the pictures that it takes are very, very good quality. Personally I think that 5 megapixels is enough for taking photos but if you are planning on doing a lot of editing and zooming in on certain parts of photos then maybe 6 or 7 megapixels is more what you are after. ..."

Surprising from Canon

AdvantagesSmall & Lightweight, easy to whip out for snapshots

DisadvantagesPoor battery life, poor low-light quality, technical design faults with model

"...search for images shot by canon ixus 70 / sd1000 (the usa/ca model title). http://www.flickr.com/cameras/canon/powershot_sd1000/ '''movie mode''' there is a movie mode and i rarely use it, but it does work well and gives a clear focused image. there are many settings again to change here, and the option for selftimer. options: (fps, resolution, my colors --see previous options, white balance and more) '''conclusion''' it's a good compact ..."

Fantastic Little Camera

AdvantagesCheap, cute, tiny, great pictures

DisadvantagesNight mode isn't fantastic

"I am very bad at upgrading to new technology. I rarely buy something new until the old one is completely dead and buried, and so when my poor old camera finally passed away I wasn't looking forward to getting a new camera - especially considering I had no idea what half the specifications listed next to the camera means! To me, a camera either takes a good picture or it doesn't - and for me, this little baby certainly does. This camera has a simple ..." Read review

A Fantastic, Sexy Small Compact Camera

AdvantagesSuper Small, Slim, packed with useful features and fantastic photo quality.

DisadvantagesNone that I can comment on

"...to date. I had Canon Ixus 55 previously which I unfortunately damaged (I'm slightly on the clumsy side - so get through camera's quite easily). The Canon Ixus 70 is a brilliant replacement, so small - but packed full of the same excellent Canon features that the 55 had. The Ixus was always seen as a fantastic camera even from the days of APS - I get so many good remarks from people. I love the Black/Silver retro look and think it looks classy in ..." Read review

Britain's best camera!

AdvantagesSmall, light, great value!!

DisadvantagesNone!

"Without a doubt this is the best camera of all time. Producing excellent quality photos and only costing around £100, I will never need another digital camera. It is small enough to take on a night out (in a pocket or handbag), but is robust enough to take a few knocks! It takes an SD card which are easy and cheap to buy online. The auto-focus and facial recignition features are very good and the presentation of the photos as you view ..." Read review

Great little digital camera

AdvantagesTakes great pictures

Disadvantagesnone

"...We had previously purchased a Canon Powershot SD400 and needed a second camera. We tried to purchase the same one, as we had liked it so much, but they had updated it. This camera was the updated version. Mine looks a bit different from the picture (I have a total silver front, which looks alot nicer) and my flash is built in not sticking out. The camera is a great size, easy to keep in your bag, so you are never without a decent camera. The 7.1 ..." Read review

Advantagesease of use, durability, good quality pictures

Disadvantagescanon are a more expensive make but its worth it

"I loved this camera so much myself that i went and got one for my mum! I got the camera just before i went travelling and didnt have time to open the instruction book but i didnt need to because it was so easy to use and the pictures look fantastic. Its small enough to fit in your pocket, good enough to print the pictures for your wall and sturdy enough that it survived all the knocks of a couple of years on the road.....it even kept going after ..."

Canon Digital IXUS 70

AdvantagesMultiple options to achieve the optimum picture.

DisadvantagesNo battery meter that I can find.

"I had been struggling to find a camera for a while. There is such a range in prices for what seems to be little or no difference in specification. However, i found this camera to be priced decently especially in online stores, whilst also having the capabilities to match its higher priced competitors. What is particularly special about this camera is that it has a viewfinder. Although this seems unnecessary to some, try asking an older member of ..." Read review

Digital Canon Ixus 70

It is well designed with a 3x optical zoom lense large 2.5" lcd display as well as an optical viewfinder to conserve battery, the body is metal which i have found to be quite robust and the only protrusions being the combined shutter/zoom buttons and the camera strap. Although it is small it is of high quality and comes with loads of features including colour accent/ swap, ..." Read review

Ixus 70 that is what I have

Advantagessmall and agile

Disadvantagesa bit fragile

"This camera is all you need if you are an amateur and need a compact camera that give you nice photos to a very nice price. When you start the camera you get an annoying sound byte but that is somewhat forgotten when you realize that it is a very fast starter. So this is good if you get some elusive moments that you want to capture, because when you shoot a picture it is also very fast on photos of all qualities . The autofocus is fast, though ..."

Quick review of Canon Digital IXUS 70

"I do not have any great techinical knowledge with regard to cameras but speak only as a family camera user! This camera is great. really simple to use - yet packed with features such as red eye remover that other more expensive cameras lack. Compact, light and neatly designed this camera produces great quality pictures. I can't reccomend it highly enough!
