The chunky charger and lead plugs into the mains. The flat, square lithium battery has a small amount of charge on arrival, and needs a good fill up before you set off to take pics. The first charge took around 4 hours before showing `full'. I bought a spare, at an attractive price on amazon, for longer trips away. Canon NB-11L Battery Pack Not using AA batteries means the camera can be lighter and will go longer without requiring changes.
The instruction book is fat and thick, although you can confidently tear off 95% of that, as you only need your own one language.
The rubber left side strip of the camera peels back for the av/out digital lead you already may own; it's the tiny one of course. Luckily I had a connector in my bag of tricks, to fit the camera to my imac; but if you haven't already got one, this cable looks good, with a long lead.

I'd bought a 16gb memory card, which arrived in the same delivery. SanDisk SDSDB-016G-B35 16GB Class 4 SDHC Memory Card That slots in neatly along with the charged up battery.Read more ›
The IXUS 150 has a quite nice zoom range (8x) wrapped up in small compact body. And bucking the trend from some makers, you do get a real battery charger and don't have to charge it in camera! (which is nice)
My quick summary after field testing the IXUS good/bad points:
+ Handy 8x 28-224 mm equivalent zoom range, a step above some compacts in this price
+ Pretty good image quality for the sensor size
+ Excellent 1 cm macro (at the 28mm end) you can get some really good close up shots, much closer than some rivals (5 or 10cm is common)
+ Autofocus locked on well in most situations, the AF assist light helps in low light (I'd avoid using the tele end too much as it will struggle to focus due to the lens speed)
+ Fairly snappy performance, quick start up this is a point and shoot that is responsive and quick
+ Has lens based stabilisation which works very well esp useful for night shooting and lower light levels
+ 2.7" 230k dot LCD is fairly clean and clear even in harder lighting, not the highest resolution but in this price range it's normal
+ Movie quality is respectable for a budget compact (even though it's not full HD)
+ Good flash exposures, power balanced well with the scene (no real white out issues as you get on some compacts)
+ Battery life isn't bad for a small compact I got over 220 shots per charge, there is an "eco mode" that extends battery life some more
+ Simple to use with a help button if you get stuck.Read more ›
For well under £100 you cannot go wrong in my opinion and having seen shots taken with modern smart phones there is no comparison with a "proper camera" like the Canon IXUS which has a decent lens. The HD video is outstanding for such a small camera and with a 32GB SDHC Extreme card you can takes many hours of video and still have room for 10,000 + photos! You can probably guess, that I am very pleased with my purchase.
