Canon Ixus FF

AdvantagesEasy to use, fun size options

DisadvantagesWould be even better if smaller

"This is a smart little APS camera (Advanced Photo System) this basically means that you can take different size photographs. The way it works is you have to change the size by sliding a switch to the desired size such as (P) Panoramic, (C) Classic or (H) H print which is in between. After you do this you can see the new size through the viewfinder. A useful tip is that the clever APS film allows for you to choose at the time of printing what size ..." Read review

A Useful Piece of Jewellery

AdvantagesBeautifully packaged. Fine build quality.Good results

DisadvantagesAPS is an expensive format. Camera pricy.

"...the proud owner of a Canon IXUS ever since launch - "Gadget Man" strikes again. Its tough no-nonsense stainless steel design gets many admiring glances from photographers and others with an eye for design. Forgetting the looks, and fag-packet dimensions, it's also a damned fine little camera, with its zoom lens and pop-up flash, with an anti-red-eye option. Its optional remote control is wafer-thin so be sure not to put it in the back pocket ..." Read review

Cutest little thing ever

AdvantagesTiny, good quality picture, good build quality, sexiest camera around

DisadvantagesNo mid-roll change and pathetic attempt at red-eye reduction

"...replace my SLR (a venerable Canon AE-1) but there are times when you don't want to lug a bigger camera around and the Ixus is really tiny. Other gripes I have are common to all APS and compact cameras and not the Canon specifically. One is that the maximum aperture is very small so the camera wants to use flash in all but the brightest light, even with an ISO 400 film. The other is the horrendous cost of APS photography. Films are more expensive ..." Read review

What a Picture

AdvantagesEasy to use and reliable


"The Cannon Ixus APS camera is without doubt the best camera I have ever used. I looks smart, is compact and easy to carry and makes taking pictures so simple my six year old can produce good results. Simply switch it on select the format select the lens point and press. The focussing is taken care of the flash is automatic and the results are stunning. It has red eye reduction, date and title options a timmer facility to take pictures of yourself ..." Read review
