5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent camera at a bargain price., 20 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Canon IXUS 115 HS Digital Camera - Grey (12.1MP, 4x Optical Zoom) 3.0 inch LCD (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
I bought this camera as a carry around to compliment my Nikon SLR. I have owned Canon IXUS camera in the past ( 90 IS) and was very impressed, therefore I decided to replace it with this as this one comes with a bit more of the latest technology than my old one.
First impressions were pretty good, although the build quality is slightly plasticky. The battery cover is quite flimsy for instance. To be fair though this is at the lower end of the IXUS range.
Now onto how it performs. I wasn't expecting it to rival the DSLR in overall image quality, and it doesn't however for a compact I find the image quality very good. The noise control is excellent, you can actually use the images take at 3200 ISO for smaller prints. The lens is pretty decent, delivery good sharpness across the frame, focussing seems to be pretty accurate. I have tried a Panasonic Lumix TZ-6 and a Nikon S560 in comparison, and the Canon has much better image quality than either of them.
Video quality is good, although it won't play on windows media player. You can zoom during playback, but this is only digital zoom, so if you zoom in too far picture quality degrades.
I would class it as an excellent buy. Canon are currently doing a cashback promotion on this model of 20, so in the end it worked out that it cost me 115 all in.
To finish off I would like to mention the service from Amazon. It was excellent. I ordered this camera on a Sunday afternoon, and used the free super saver delivery option. The camera arrived on the Tuesday.
Overall 5 out of 5, it does everything you could realistically ask of a compact, and isn't too expensive.
