Six years later, still snapping

AdvantagesReliable, durable, great images

DisadvantagesSmall battery, low pixellage by modern standards

"...requires a driver download from Canon before WIndows will recognise it, but these are not big problems - if you lost the lead, or couldn't get hold of the driver (it's still on Canon's site as I speak), you could still use a card reader for your pictures, as many choose to do anyway. The memory format is good old Compact Flash, which while more cumbersome than SD is still a very popular format - in fact Canon and others still use it in all their current ..." Read review

Good quality and value

AdvantagesCompact, good results, now good value.

DisadvantagesMenus a bit fiddly.

"Having often admired the Ixus cameras but been deterred by the price, when it came to finding a compact camera to complement my wife's Fuji 4900Z, the Ixus V was on the shortlist. I was looking for something small enough to take everywhere, but with enough features and quality to satisfy a keen photographer. I paid £319 for the Ixus V, which is significantly cheaper than the Minolta Dimage X and Pentax Optio 330, the others on my shortlist. Picture ..." Read review

Fairly good camera

AdvantagesSmall, uses compact flash (cheaper and used more than SD cards), b & w looks nice

Disadvantagesmovie playback has no sound, shutter speed is not variable so can blur, buttons can become sticky

"I bought one of these in Dec 2002. Its worked fairly well considering the bashing its had. The thing with a small camera is that you tend to take it to places (and in situations) where you are most liekly to break it e.g. the pub, a club or the beach. I'm fairly happy with it but the buttons are sticking a bit. Sometimes the power doesn't come on properly. A couple of times the battery has died with the lense still out which can be a pain. With ..." Read review

Another Funky DigiCam, by Canon

AdvantagesSmall, compact, light, and durable

Disadvantagesvery few, i really cant think of any now

"This is the most smart camera i've had so far. It takes very fine pictures, and is very small, light, and easy to hold. It's got many features, such as lighting controls, macro-mode, scene mode, movie taking with sound (even though you can't preview the sound directly on the camera), and many more things and settings for people who enjoy playing around with these types of things. The software it comes with for downloading and archiving is very good ..." Read review

Good Quality Small Digital Camera

Advantagescompact, many picture options

Disadvantagesno case included, slow to take photos

"...I returned the camera to Canon under the 1 year warrenty and they replaced the outer casing for free. Overall I have been very happy with this camera. If I want a printed copy, the images are great at 6x4" and some can be blown up to A4 size. ..." Read review

Get one if you can!

AdvantagesEase of everyday use, quality of construction

DisadvantagesAdvanced menu a bit tricky

"...the images printed off the Canon are as good as those I used to get off a 35mm manual in 6 by 4. The macro function seems to work very well. To give you an idea, I used it to photograph an ultrascan so that I could email it for someone. The result was as clear as the original. The rechargeable battery is very easy to pop out and charge and is working fine even though I often just put 10 mintues of charge on to top it up before we go out, so ..." Read review

cameratic

Advantagestakes great pictures

Disadvantagesnone

"This little Canon Ixus V digital camera packs a big punch. It has loads of facilities for such a small camera such as Movie with sound and the ability to make it as easy or as complicated to use as you like. The quality is excellent both in the pics taken and the feel of the camera. It has a very rugged aluminium shell that also makes it look the dogs b£$$lks. Well worth it, but if you want really high definition pics than go for 3.1mp or higher. ..." Read review

Canon Digital Ixus V

AdvantagesRange of functions, hard wearing, reliability

DisadvantagesEase of use (on Occasions)

"I believe this camera has now been superceded by another version of Digital Ixus. I bought this camera in July 2000 as I was undertaking a Computer Arts course. Overall it has come in very useful for both fun home pictures and pictures for digital editing. It is a reliable, hardwearing camera, that is a good buy for people with a little digital knowledge! It comes with a battery and a charger, however I would definitely recommend having two chargers ..." Read review

A nice little camera

Advantageseasy to use, great pictures

Disadvantagesa bit big by todays standards, fiddly download procedure

"I bought this on my way out to China to work so paid less as it was duty free. I find this camera very easy to use but it can be a bit fiddly when it comes to downloading pictures via USB. I find a flash card much more manageable. The battery life is good and with a memory card upgrade it's a superb purchase. Highly recommended. I'm quite an occasional photographer and I find that this is a great camera to keep around for those moments. I think if ..." Read review
