More creative options - near or far
You can enjoy great group shots and landscapes with a greater sense of space thanks to the versatile 28mm wide-angle lens. With a wide-angle lens you capture a much wider field of view and have the power to create photos that really catch the eye of the viewer. Meanwhile the 4x optical zoom lets you get up close and personal, whether you are shooting landscapes or a child's smile, delivering razor-sharp precision with lifelike colour every time.

The high resolution 12.1 Megapixels sensor allows you to capture every scene in rich detail, ensuring large prints - even of cropped pictures - retain high image quality. Plus the large 2.7" (6.8cm) PureColor LCD II screen ensures framing and playing back your images is both easy and enjoyable.

Intelligent by design for the perfect image
Setting the IXUS 105 to Smart Auto mode allows the camera to intelligently select the appropriate settings so you can concentrate on your subject. Advanced Scene Detection Technology automatically analyses shooting conditions - detecting people, distance, brightness, colour and movement information - then selects the perfect settings from 18 specially defined scenes. So whether you're photographing flowers, a captivating sunset or friends in the park you can be confident you're getting the perfect image.

A world of options in the palm of your hand
As well as Smart Auto you can switch the camera to a number of advanced presets for the best possible photos under certain conditions. There are 15 Shooting Modes to choose from including 12 Special Scene Modes, such as Firework, Snow and Beach so you're ready for whatever shot comes your way.

SDXC and Eye-Fi card support
The IXUS 105 incorporates dedicated support functions for the next-generation SDXC memory cards as well as Eye-Fi cards. SDXC cards are for high capacity storage of up to 2TB (2 Terabytes = 2,000 Gigabytes) while Eye-Fi are the first memory cards with their own Wi-Fi transmitter that allow you to effortlessly transfer pictures or videos directly from the camera to online sharing sites via the Eye-Fi server without the need for a PC. You can also send movies wirelessly to your own PC and customize not just where your pictures and movies are sent but also how you want them organised.

Improved shots in low light
The IXUS 105 features a new low light mode for use in places such as pubs, parties and candlelit restaurants where you can't, or don't want to, use flash - automatically allowing you to capture atmospheric shots. Meanwhile Canon's i-Contrast feature, which is available in either shooting or playback mode, offers improved contrast and greater detail in tricky lighting conditions.

Smart Flash Exposure intelligently adjusts to give just the correct amount of fill.

Smart Flash Exposure
New Smart Flash Exposure improves natural and ambient lighting in every shot, intelligently adjusting flash exposure to suit the subject and the shooting conditions. In daylight, for example, Smart Flash Exposure will detect and eliminate harsh facial shadows created when light reaches people at an angle, automatically engaging the flash to brighten up any poorly lit features. Flash power is also controlled during close ups, preventing over exposure and retaining image detail of subjects shot from a short distance.

Video clips with easy YouTube uploader
As well as taking fantastic still pictures the IXUS 105 allows you to capture smooth 30fps VGA video clips of up to an hour in length. For fast and easy uploading of your clips to sharing websites like YouTube, Easy Web Upload software is included free in the box. This displays your SD clips and can store your YouTube log in details, so you can just select your clip and upload with one click.

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 can even be detected in profile, at an angle to the camera or from long distances. 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.

The outstanding quality of Canon lenses is underscored by their use in most broadcast applications. For example programs like Coronation Street, Casualty and X Factor and nature documentaries like The Blue Planet and Life, as well as the majority of outside broadcasts in the UK, are all recorded using Canon's state-of-the-art broadcast lenses.

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 SLR cameras in 1987 it is the fastest in-lens image stabiliser available on the market and ensures the stylish IXUS range has a top quality pedigree.

Fast, intelligent processing
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.

Colour Name: Brown
I got this camera to replace my older Powershot A560. That was a great camera, but I wanted something more pocket-sized so I'd be more likely to take it out. I'm a D-SLR user, so a few features of the IXUS 105 were important to me. The wide-angle lens was the biggest selling feature. I enjoy landscape and street photography and I'm used to the 18mm wide-angle I have on my Nikon D60, so having a wide-angle on my compact is equally important. Also great when taking self-portraits of the girlfriend and I, we still get loads of background in.

One great feature that's carried over from my previous camera is the Long Shutter mode. This allows you to get longs exposures between 1 and 15 seconds. This certainly isn't for handheld photography, but it allows you to get some great fireworks shots, smooth the surface of water, and other creative ideas.

Video quality is ok. Nothing to rave about, but there if/when you need it.
Photo quality is great. Not as good as I'm used to seeing on my D-SLR, but I wouldn't expect that. If it wasn't just a "convenience" camera to me, I would've opted for a higher end model with manual controls. But for the average person who just wants to take great photos with minimal fuss, this is a great option. It's a very compact size, sits discreetly in your pocket, battery life has been excellent so far, and it's extremely easy to navigate the menu system. The button layout makes perfect sense, and the switch to go from Video-Photo-Auto illustrates how straight-forward this camera was designed to be.
Comparatively priced cameras from other brands will probably give you HD video functions. You'll have to decide yourself if that is reason enough to forgo this well-made, easy to use, high quality image-taking camera.

The brown colour is awesome too....that was actually probably the second most appealing thing about it!

I bought this as my friend has an older version, this was just the current version and recommend it. Really easy to use and featured in Pc-Pro A-list which I take to be a really good rule of thumb as these guys really do geek all over everything IT.
The menus are really simple and I've given it to girls for the weekend who openly admit to not being good with IT, but when I show them tne menu has 4 different picture modes with easy to read icons ranging from
kids and pets - action
Moon with the Eiffel Tower - Night time
well you get the idea, its pretty straight forward isn't it!
So if you want a fun, easy to use little camera then this is it. (I'd even go so far to say that I've had phones bigger than it - yes that includes my old N95!)

Am happy with this camera but do find it can be slow to capture an image & then go back to the screen. I bought it to have a camera I can have with me everywhere to capture my 12month old, I do find it a bit slow & I end up missing the moment or capturing it as she goes & does something else which is really frustrating..Size is great & picture quality is good.

this camera is great! it arrived to me this morning and this afternoon i've been going round the garden taking some fab photos. the change from Auto to self program helps with getting graphic close ups! and the change of apature is manual so its a real added bonus as you dont get that on most digital cameras.

this camera is a great especailly since my old digital camera was so awful. it was a Casio that was just 2 years old and the anti-shake never worked and the pictures were way to exposed when using the flash yet this camera just blends with your setting without any fuss!!!

so im so looking forward to nights out, holidays and outtings with this little baby without lugging my DSLR around all the time.

Colour Name: Pink
I couldn't be happier with this camera and it's for that reason that I have been prompted to write a review. I've had a Canon camera before and really like the make so when I was looking for a new one it seemed an obvious choice. I wanted to buy a camera with little fuss and bother that would take good photographs and this does exactly that. I've only had it three days and thus far have only needed to use the auto function - the photos are clear, well focused and good quality and I haven't needed to do a thing! If you're looking for a point and click camera then this is for you. And it's pink.

After searching around this was the best deal by a long way plus the added attraction of a free leather camera case.What you do need to buy is a sd memory card.I needed a upgrade and this fits the bill perfectly,it's a straight forward point and shoot camera,I've now had this camera for the past month and have got on with it really well plus I'm learning and experimenting taking better photos,recommended.Delivery was earlier than expected so that was a bonus as well.

Delivery and everything was fine, but the image quality of the camera was not as described by some users. in a good lighting conditions its ok but when there is a lack of light, quality goes from average to poor.

I've owned this camera since March 2010 and pleased to say it's a great little camera, I bought it as back-up to my Cannon DLSR but to be honest its taking pictures of the same quality without the bother of carrying such a big camera around.
Easy to use and robust, mine been knocked about a bit on holidays and showing some war wounds but still working perfectly.
Great battery life and nice LCD size.
Suggest you use an 8gb SD card as this will keep up with your picture taking and the cameras battery life.
Happy snapping
