Form and functionality?

AdvantagesSmall, pretty, high quality photos

DisadvantagesNo optical zoom, no case supplied

"...them together using the supplied Canon PC software, resulting in a single panoramic image. This camera can also take short films (with sound!). These are of a reasonable quality, with the highest resolution being 320x240, but certainly not great! The camera is also highly customisable - you can configure it to display light distribution histograms and other shooting information after you take photos, and even customise the cameras start-up picture ..."

Another highly desirable shiny object?

AdvantagesSmall, chic, light

DisadvantagesNo 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. The camera itself is stunning. It has a metal body with a brushed finish that won’t get marked easily. The front does not have (too) many logos plastered all over it, as ..." Read review

You Don't Have To Put On The Red Light

Advantagessmall & sexy; impressive battery life; lots of included software

Disadvantagesnot particularly cheap, no battery life indication until it’s much too late, tendency to red-eye

"...resolution that you use. Canon supply you with an 8Mb card, and at the “Fine/Large” resolution that I use, this gives you an average of twelve exposures. Now I say “average” because there is actually a third factor which doesn’t have much input on smaller cards, and that is the kind of shot you take. Since the photograph is digital, that allows compression techniques to be used in storing the file in order to take less ..." Read review

Lovely JUBBLY

AdvantagesDecent price

DisadvantagesNot too many

"...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 and used versions at just £220. I daresay that all that will soon change, however. Kelkoo suggests prices in excess of 300 notes, unfortunately. Best advice is to shop around. Also ..." Read review

A very impressive camera

AdvantagesQuality of photos, features, size, ease of use

DisadvantagesSo small you might lose it!

"...decided to go for the Canon IXUS I camera as this seemed to offer very good features, combined with a reasonable price tag (around £250). What’s in the box? As well as the digital camera, you are also supplied with the following: A comprehensive instruction manual Guarantee and registration material Software starter guide USB lead Audio/Video lead Canon Digital Camera software ArcSoft Camera Suite 1.2 software Rechargeable battery Battery ..."

Cute And Funky

AdvantagesSize, speed, quality (picture & build)

DisadvantagesSize, price, bundled accessories

"...and almost seems as if Canon are giving you a preview of what it can do, but you'll have to spend more to get it to do what you want to do. 4)You could almost be blinded by the red-eye light (almost a xenon bulb!) Optional extras are good, including the all weather case, water proof to 3 meters. Overall a great buy, but you could feel a little bit cheated by the lack of extras provided. ..." Read review

Not the BEST digital camera, but buy it.

AdvantagesSmall, Good looking, affordable, handy

DisadvantagesDigital zoom is no good, and Supplied CF is too small

"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 pictures, I have taken more pictures of my children in the last month than the last 5 years and will need to buy a bigger hard drive. Faults with the camera? ..." Read review

You canon't get better than this

AdvantagesSmall, takes great photos, too many options, looks the part

DisadvantagesSoftware not great, carry case would have been nice.

"...software supplied (Adobe photodeluxe & Canon Zoom Browser/Photostich) Other Info> The camera can be plugged into a TV, however we haven't used this option yet. Price> On the UK high street it retails for about £500 - 550. We managed to buy it for £305 from an electrical shop in Tenerife! However the manual was in Spanish/Portugese but we obtained a copy in English from someone else who owns one of these cameras. Help is available on the ..." Read review

Canon Digital Ixus

Advantagesbulk

Disadvantagessee write

"...I for me the new Canon for Ixus for digital 300, there this already a 3-fold zoom lens has. As I in the media market however both the Ixus digital 300 and the "old" Ixus Dígital side by side watched, closed my decision rapid for the benefit of the old model. While the old Ixus has the size of a cigarette packet, the Ixus reminds digital 300 more of a miniature camera. The 300er increased in all three sizes. In addition to gets the by far bigger emphasis. ..." Read review

Possibly The Best Camera In The World

AdvantagesSize, Weight, Image Quality

Disadvantagesnone to mention

"...however. As with all the other Canon digital cameras, it came with a rechargeable battery and recharger cradle. This battery lasts around 60 shots without flash or 35-40 with. The camera comes equipped with 8Mb of Compact Flash memory - which can be filled with about 12-14 shots at maximum resolution. So more memory will be on your shopping list quite early on (I bought a 64Mb card with mine) The camera is connected to computers via USB, ..." Read review

This Tiny Camera is a Must for Gadget Lovers

AdvantagesAbsolutely Tiny, Rechargable Battery

DisadvantagesOn 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. It has 2X optical zoom (35-70mm) and ISO 100 sensitivity. Nothing to write home about, but the image quality is good even in low light situations. ..." Read review

Canon Digital Ixus

AdvantagesExcellent quality for the price

Disadvantages.

"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 pointing at them; blessed by its magnificence. Spec:- With 2.1 million pixel CCD it allows images of up to 1600x1200. 2x zoom lens with high resolution ..." Read review

Small and Shiny Ooooohh

AdvantagesSmall and Shiny!

DisadvantagesNo case or power supply

"...version of the film based Canon Ixus. Top resolution of this camera is 2.1 Mega Pixels. It has a very fast 2x zoom with good battery life. It's the smallest digital camera currently on the market which is why I like it. A few minor niggles - the battery is a lithium ion Canon proprietory, which means if you run out of juice away from a mains plug it's useless. A spare battery is a must. Also it doesn't come with a case so this is something ..." Read review

Great for Families

AdvantagesSize , Style , Simplicity.All you need for day-to day photos

DisadvantagesNo infra-red remote , no case ,limited functions

"Like many people, my first camera when I started to earn money was an SLR. I took some good photos and invested money in extra lenses , filters , flashes etc. All very well until children atrrived on the scene and I found that time spent setting up the camera meant that I missed all those wonderful moments of spontaneity . So I traded all in for a compact and my wife got an APS . Result-great family photos . For a couple of years now , I've been itching ..." Read review
