Canon Ixus 220 HS
Advantages: Good price, compact, good battery life
Disadvantages: Less functions compared to newer Canon models
I got this camera a few weeks ago for my trip to Spain. I am definitely satisfied with it, especially given it had only cost me a little more than 120 pounds. A few things that really impressed me:
- Battery life - I was in Madrid for 4 days, taking photos here and there but I didn't have to charge my camera a single time! This really surprised me.
- Picture quality - fantastic, even in low light. I was at a flamenco club with minimal lighting, and the pictures turned out great without me having to adjust ISO or anything.
- The smart auto feature - I found this really useful because I didn't have to adjust to a different programme every time I am in a new environment.
- Size - very compact, not at all heavy, I could fit it into a small handbag. Definitely a good thing for ladies!
Overall, a very good basic camera - although compared the newer IXUS models, you cannot expect it to have as many features. However, for everyday use (non-professional photography), it definitely suffices! Would definitely recommend it.
Summary: Good for everyday use, bargain for its picture quality
