5.0 out of 5 stars I'm very pleased..., 8 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Canon Ixus 40 Digital Camera [4Mp, 3x Optical] (Electronics)
Bought this a couple of weeks ago and not regretted it one bit. The unit itself is very small and puts my friends digital cameras to shame. When you turn it on it comes to life and is ready to shoot in less than a second, it's very quick indeed. To take shots you have to hold the button down halfway and wait for the camera to focus then push it down the rest of the way. It isn't terribly difficult but this is annoying to explain to strangers when you're asking them to take pictures of you. The picture quality is excellent as is the screen which is of a good size, bigger than most digital cameras. The video is impressive (stored in a .avi format), although the sound quality was poor on the videos I took (that could be because I took them in a night club though so don't take my word for it on this matter - but after all its a camera, not a camcorder so you can't complain that much anyway, it's good for what it is). The battery charges in very little time, about 4 hours from dead I think. Comes with a 16mb SD card which you really need to replace as this will only store about 10 pictures of the highest quality so get yourself a bigger card, a 1 GB card will store about 450 of the highest quality pictures that this camera will take although it's often not entirely necessary to take pictures of this quality, they'll be fine in slightly lower quality and you'll be able to store a whole lot more pictures (I take them at the next level down from top quality and have room for over 900 on a 1GB card, more than enough). One handy feature shows the amount of pictures you have room for on your memory card at the current resolution in the bottom right hand side of the screen so it's easy to see how much room you have left.
Overall very impressed indeed!
