Fantastic little camera that never disappoints. Not only do these have a stylish and ergonomic design but they are also very light and small enough to put in your pocket when out and about. We have had a few of the different models of the ixus and have loved them all. This Ixus again provides the high quality you would expect from Cannon, Of course, as with all cameras, the lens is easily damaged but that is to be expected. Having said this, my cannon ixus has lasted without being broken for longer than any other camera I have owned. The picture quality is fantastic (clear and bright) - even printed to A4 size, they still look great. The function menus are intuitive and easily navigated. It has all the functions required by an average person with some interest in playing around with and understanding the settings but also the simplicity to point and shoot without having to worry about the results.
This camera gave me my first experience of a camera with wi-fi and indeed did I find this feature very entertaining, I think it's very useful for quick upload to Facebook or YouTube and being able to share your moments with the world at the press of a button! The camera is very lightweight and based on aesthetics looks nice, with a 3 inch LCD screen that displays photo and video clearly and vividly. I think the image quality is good, with really fantastic colour reproduction so photos look great on the internet. I think it's an ideal 'family' camera for taking on trips and keeping in your pocket as it is compact and lightweight. I do think that it is quite expensive for its specs though, as you can get cameras like the Nikon Coolpix for significantly less that do more or less the same thing, although it can be hard to find a camera with the same optical zoom as this canon for the price. I also think a bad point is the fact it lacks full HD recording which is a shame, but is something most smartphones come equipped with now. And one of my favourite things is that it has a minimum focusing distance of only 1 centimetre, which is great for up close macro style images!
