IXUS 115 HS - Excellent camera, 2 Aug 2011
After a lot of research I bought this camera to replace my ageing Canon Ixus 400.
It takes very good pictures expecially in doors, without the need for the flash, giving a much more natural looking picture.
The camera is small enough to fit in jeans pocket and I purchased a sock/case to stop it getting scratched.
Battery life is very good. I recently used it on holiday and took 240 pictures and several minutes of video on a single charge and still going strong.
One reason for choosing the Ixus 115 HS was because of its HD video capability and not wanting to have to carry a camera and camcorder. The quality of video might not quite match a dedicated camcorder but looks very good on a 40 inch LCD TV. The video plays back smoothly to the TV from the camera but is a little jerky when played through a laptop to the TV. This is no fault of the camera or video file but due to the spec of the laptop. It's worth bearing this in mind if you intend to play HD video to your TV via a laptop because I didn't expect this to be an issue.
Im not a professional photographer but can't fault the camera for general use. I would certainly recommend to others.
