HD movies
You can create smooth, high quality, movies in High Definition, which you can view and share with friends on the camera's bright 2.5 inch� PureColor LCD II screen. Or you can connect, using an optional mini HDMI cable, for playback on HD TV with no loss of quality. Either way you and your friends will be amazed by the results.

Flawless Detection Technology
Evolved Face Detection and Motion Detection technology finds and tracks moving subjects until you're ready to shoot, adjusting the camera settings for optimal results. Faces will have natural-looking skin tones and and additional Blink Detection lets you avoid the disappointment of mis-timed people shots by displaying an alert if a person in the frame has their eyes closed. A Face Detection Self-Timer also makes group photos and self-portraits easy. Once the shot has been set up, the camera records the number of faces detected in the frame when the shutter is depressed and the self timer started - it then waits for an extra face to get in the frame and adjusts focus and exposure before it takes the picture. Auto Red-Eye detection completes the detection technology collection to ensure flawless photos every time.

Rich razor-sharp images - every time
The lens is the most important part of any imaging device and all Canon cameras incorporate lenses designed and manufactured by Canon - lenses based on over 60 years of experience for outstanding results. Canon's market-leading Optical Image Stabiliser is a lens-shift system that automatically detects and corrects camera shake, whilst ensuring outstanding image quality. It allows handheld shooting at longer focal lengths and in lower light conditions without blur, giving you steady, crisp, brilliant images you'll be proud to shoot and share. Developed initially for Canon's EOS Digital SLR cameras it is the fastest in-lens image stabiliser available on the market and ensures the stylish Digital IXUS range has a top quality pedigree.

The 3x optical zoom lets you get up close and personal, whether you are shooting landscapes or a child's smile the straight optical paths deliver razor-sharp precision with lifelike colour every time.

Meanwhile a resolution of 12.1 Megapixels allows you to capture every scene in rich detail, ensuring oversize prints - even of cropped pictures - retain high image quality.

Fast, intelligent processing even in tricky lighting conditions
Canon’s most advanced image processor, DIGIC 4, lies at the heart of every Canon digital camera and delivers exceptional processing speeds. It also makes possible the camera's intelligent evolved Face and Object Detection technologies and Canon's i-Contrast feature. This offers improved contrast and greater detail in tricky lighting conditions. Available in either shooting or playback mode, i-Contrast analyses a scene, then boosts brightness in dark areas without blowing out light areas, while the noise reduction function of DIGIC 4 ensures minimal noise in the adjusted areas. This helps uncover previously hidden detail in the shadow areas of an image.

Customise and correct colour as you shoot
My Colors Mode lets you customise colour reproduction before shooting and correct individual colours on the LCD screen as you're shooting. My Colors offer you many options, such as 'Positive Film' which makes all the reds, greens and blues really vivid; Lighter and Darker Skin tones; 'Colour Accent' that allows you to retain a single colour in your image whilst the other colours turn monochrome and even a 'Colour Swap' where you can select one colour and replace it with another colour you specify for special effects. Since they work with both still images and movies, these modes let you enjoy producing various image or movie effects.

First of all, this camera is VERY small - it's an ultra compact compact - and you really can take it anywhere at no inconvenience and when you unpack it from the box you'll probably think 'this is even smaller than I thought' I think this is because the corners are so smoothly rounded it feels tiny!

Secondly, it has an excellent auto mode and a good face recognition AF system. The menu's are nicely laid out and it's intuitive. The auto white balance is generally very good, and it takes great snapshots. I particularly like the way that with one button press in auto mode you can bring up exposure compensation and that the EV scale then stays there until you put it away again - this is superb especially when shooting into the light (a notorious way to confuse the metering with any camera!)

Please don't be fooled by the 'megapixel' wars though - all these latest compacts have a tiny sensor and the result is that although the photo's are physically 'large' in terms of their overall size they are not comparable to a professional or SLR camera in terms of detail and file quality. (This is not a Canon-only issue, of course - you can't get full frame performance in something so small you lose it in your pocket!)

The lens is OK, although it's a shame it does not have an F2.8 setting (having said that the low light performance with no flash is still quite good, because the higher ISO performance is good -at ISO400 and 800 you get good compensation for the lens' lack of a really wide aperture!

This is really compact and it 'does do what it says on the tin' Have found it really easy to use and it takes great pictures on auto mode,this is the easy to use mode, just point and shoot. I print many of the pictures taken and the quality of the pictures this camera produces is second to none. It has too many functions to mention here but I have tried many of them with great success. The camera is light and slim great for taking about with you either on holiday or just a day out, fits more than comfortably into a pocket, so no bulk to carry. Highly reccomended.

I needed a small, well built and easy to use compact for myself and other family members to use when our dSLR is not appropriate or convenient.

First impressions of a well designed and easy to use compact are sustained with continued use. By necessity the controls are small but are not difficult to use even with my largish hands and fingers.

The LCD review screen is bright and clear and there is a small but usable viewfinder when required. A nice to have feature not found on many compacts.

Changing from auto to program to movie mode couldn't be more obvious with a simple three position slide. Review of pictures or movie playback is also easy with clearly indicated control buttons and the four direction controller gives quick access to useful functions such as disabling the flash, deleting unwanted photos, setting the timer and so on. Menus are also clear and easy to navigate.

Picture quality is quite good but not as I have come to expect from my dSLR (a Nikon D60), however the movie quality is superb. I recommend getting a large capacity memory card as you are going to need it with this sort of quality.

Flash isn't bad but of course is straight on with compacts but it can be turned off very easily which is handy as even when shooting indoors with normal room lighting the photos look more natural without the flash. The image stabilisation looks to be of some use here and not just a gimmick.

Negatives are very few. There is no memory card or HDMI mini connector cable provided, both of which have to be purchased separately. Nor is there a case but these are quite minor quibbles. We will use the leather case from an earlier film IXUS. In those days they came with the camera!

Canon Digital IXUS 100 IS Digital Camera - Silver (12.1 MP, 3.0x Optical Zoom) 2.5" LCD

This is a superb camera for a non-professional user like myself who is seeking to produce top quality pictures. It is extremely small and light, sliding into the pocket when a larger camera would be an encumbrance. The quality of video recording is amazingly good, giving crisp, clear, full screen footage and sound when transferred to a PC. The software is easy to install and use and is very intuitive so there is little need to consult the manual if you have used a digital camera before.

I have a Canon EOS400 Digital SLR, but I was finding increasingly I was in positions where I could not either carry a bulky SLR around with me or want to risk £500+ of camera equipment. So I hunted out one of the smallest cameras I could get that had good reviews. Because I have an SLR, I was not too bothered about having full control over the photos (Aperture, shutter speed, etc) - I wanted a good point and shoot that will fit in my pocket. I have another camera if I want to go all David Bailey!! As soon as I got the Ixus 100 I knew I had made the right decision. It's first outing was to a theme park with my 3 and 6 year olds. Because of it's size I was able to use it safely on all the rides and get pictures I would never have take with the SLR. Also, the quality of the video is great (although limited to fairly close up as you can't zoom once you are videoing).

I have since taken both my cameras on a number of trips (including Las Vegas) and found that the Ixus is a perfect supplement for my more professional camera. It takes good quality pictures, is very trustworthy in point-and-shoot mode and is so small that it has allowed me to get pictures that I would never have taken otherwise.

I couldn't recommend it more highly.
