I have always liked the Canon range of IXUS* pocket cameras, ever since I bought the first, and to my way of thinking, best built model, finished as it was in a hefty satin stainless steel case with just a touch of black plastic around the lens. I guess you'd call this the IXUS 1, except back then it was not numbered, it was THE IXUS. *In other parts of the globe, this may be called an ELPH, as in, ?......still, as long as you've got your ELPH? (another missed marketing opportunity!) Over a 6-year period it has served us well, except for a failure during its guarantee period, which was fixed free-of-charge. However, last Summer while on holiday ... Read the complete review

Amazingly, for such 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 known as the Powershot S400, the Ixus is a compact, 4 megapixel digital camera, finished in the obligatory, ultra modern silver, ... Read the complete review

We've had had our Ixus 400 for about 4 months now and we're very happy with it. The quality of photos is excellent. The automatic mode, where the camera chooses all settings generally makes the best photos though there are also plenty of facilities to experiment with different aperture, colour and speed etc. when you want. The only dissappointment was that the Ixus 400 doesn't have as wide angle lense as its non-digital predecessor, which I have used for years and was accustomed to. Other criticism came from my father, that it was too small! That the small buttons make it hard for him to use and he found it hard to hold it steady ... Read the complete review

Coming in at under £170. This is an excellent all round camera. The auto mode makes it a great 'point and shoot' camera but there are enough manual features to keep even the budding professional photographer entertained. It has a solid feel to it and looks good in it's silver casing. Picture quality from the 4 mega pixel lens is excellent, battery life is very good and it has a lot of manual features that are usually found on more expensive camera. As with most cameras you will have to buy a bigger memory card (only 64MB supplied) and a spare battery (approx £5 on ebay). The only downside I feel is the picture quality on video recordings but then it's a camera and not a . Read the complete review

I bought this camera for my Graduation in 2004 and it lasted years - brilliant point and shoot, great display, great ease of use (even though the instructions I was sent were in French!!) Great optical zoom for the year of manufacture. I researched this camera fully at the time and it came up top in the reviews I read back then - it's better in my opinion than some of the new point and shoots being released. It was a great holiday camera - took fantastic resolution pictures. Also very handy on a night out due to it's small size - fitted nicely in my jeans pocket. The menu facilities are simple and easy to use. As well as everyday pictures of people and scenery I ... Read the complete review
