Keep Canon image quality in your pocket wherever life takes you with this slim, stylish camera, complete with 12x zoom lens to get you close to the action and Wi-Fi to instantly share your memories.

Capture every detail without losing quality

A powerful 12x zoom lens with 24x ZoomPlus lets you get really close to faraway subjects without losing sharpness or detail. With 25mm ultra-wide angle you can fit more in the frame, perfect for capturing large groups and stunning scenery.

Images worth keeping

Because beautiful images are as precious as the moments they capture, HS System is designed to give them the quality they deserve, even in low light. Using a DIGIC 4+ processor and a 16 Megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor, HS System produces clear photos with the detail, colours and ambience of the scene, just as you experienced it.

Sharp shots with Intelligent IS

The optical Image Stabilizer is vital for capturing sharp images in low light or when using the full extent of the zoom. Featuring Canon's Intelligent IS technology, the camera automatically selects the optimal Image Stabilizer mode from 8 options to ensure clear, detailed photos and movies.

Always stay connected

Show the world your latest images using Wi-Fi and NFC to connect the camera to your smartphone. Once connected, you can use the smartphone to add GPS locations to your images or to include yourself in the shot with the remote shooting function. Wi-Fi also allows you to connect with printers, PCs and other compatible devices for easy online sharing and backup.

Creative Shot

Originality is effortless with Creative Shot. Simply take a shot and the camera will analyse the scene and automatically generate five creative images plus the original unaltered photo - capturing the same subject in a variety of surprising and artistic ways. Select your filter category to create images using your preferred set of Creative Shot filters.

Expertise in your hands

Effortlessly point and shoot for great photos and movies thanks to Smart Auto, which detects the scene and selects perfect settings from 32 variables (21 in movies). Hybrid Auto lets you take photos with Smart Auto and also captures a 4 second movie clip before each shot - combining all of them into a fun HD (720p) movie.

Memorable movies

Record superb, Full HD (1080p) movies in MP4 format. Intelligent IS ensures steady movies even when you are walking or shooting from inside a moving car for truly spectacular footage.

My wife has gone through 2 ixus cameras now, not that they are flimsy; it's from excessive use because she loves them. This new one is no exception, now with longer zoom (eq to 25-300mm, f3.6-7.0), uprated processor (Digic4+), 16 Mp CMOS sensor, image stabilised, and very quick. Low light photos come out nicely, and flash free indoor exposures show little noise. This camera is up there with some of the older Powershot G series for image quality, albeit without the controls, but the Ixus doesn't need them, it sorts out exposure so well automatically.

Occasionally the speed is slow, deciding whether to turn the flash on or not, but not excessively so; the outcome is a reliable and well exposed image.

Canon camera window is an app for iPhone and iPad that connects instantly with the camera, it's so fast at photo sharing its as though the photos were taken on the Apple device.

Takes HD movie footage, has many scene and creative modes to compete with the Instagram apps.

I struggled to find exact battery replacements, but the lower capacity B-11L works perfectly and less than £20.
There's no paper manual, I guess in a world of sustainability, this is the done thing, but perhaps onboard help could be improved.

All in all, this is an excellent buy, my wife won't leave the house without it, and if you're an Ixus owner, there's enough new stuff to feel like a proper upgrade. If you're new to Ixus, perhaps a Lumix or Coolpix owner, the Ixus is going to impress with image quality.

In summary, for point and shoot, Ixus is unbeatable. exposure and speed is great, and matches SLR shots in good conditions. It's handbag/pocket size, and my wife loves the pink, it's a tad paler than the photo so not bad looking.

I bought this camera for my Girlfriend on her travels to South America, and im completely blown away with it!

The picture quality is extremely good with so much colour and detail! 16mp photos and 1080 HD recording. cant ask for anything better of the price really!

Battery life is very acceptable, storage size of photos is very good considering the quality of the photos. Bought a 32gb memory card for her to take with it, she took something stupid like 1200 photos and loads of videos. Used under 10GB of memory, photos look amazing blown up on a tele or big display. Haven't reviewed the videos properly, but still very crisp!

Only issue my girlfriend found on her travels, was the auto focus when trying to take up close photos of plants/insects/small animals. It would tend to focus on background images rather than what was in the centre. BUT she wasn't prepared to look at settings etc and mess about, so she does take some responsibility for it. But she said it was frustrating trying to picture a certain thing and always being blurry.. Looked into it since she got back, and functionality throughout is very simple and found the correct way to take certain photos in less than 5 minutes.

Overall, for a compact digital camera, i couldnt believe what we got for the money.. I spent £100 on a previous sony cyber shot or whatever they are called and it was absolutely terrible! Poor low light photos etc.. Literally not a bad word to say for this Canon, okay its was £70 more expensive or something.. But personally a £70 well spent! Huge difference between the two camera's.

Finally, great zoom and digi zoom with 'anti-shake' technology on the camera, which gave my GF the advantage at zoo's/national parks etc getting some awesome upclose photo's.

I have been without a camera for a while as I tend to use my smartphone but decided to go back to a dedicated camera. My last camera was the superb Sony Cybershot HX9 and was always going to be a hard act to follow. So far the Ixus has performed well. The wifi function is a welcome addition as it makes it oh so easy to transfer pictures to my iPad on the move. The NFC function is a little disappointing as you still need to change the wifi connection on your smartphone before it'll connect. In no way is this a deal breaker, I just thought it'd be a one-touch affair. The pictures I've taken are mostly outdoors and are of a very high quality. Even at maximum (optical) zoom the clarity is top notch. The menu system is easy to use and the start up time is quick. The LCD display is nice and clear and not too bad in direct sunlight although I would of liked a viewfinder as well. It is certainly a small camera and easily slipped into a pocket or bag. Battery life is good as well and has lasted the whole day on a trip to London with the kids. The range of features that the Canon has are enough for me as I do tend to take "normal shots" rather than tinker about. Saying that, the Creative Shot mode is very good. It takes the shot as normal but adds 5 other shots taken in different formats and angles such and sepia, black and white, tilted etc. You never know what your going to get and this makes it great for uploading to social media as a break from the norm. It has full HD video capability and works extremely well with one touch recording. The results are very good. Overall I am very impressed with my Canon Ixus 265. Yes there are some features missing that other compacts offer but it also adds a few that others don't have. It's all down to personal choice. I would definitely recommend this little compact.
