While this camera certainly has its downfalls, I still give it 4 stars. It takes solid photos and I have to give Canon credit for putting effort into making the pictures look good rather than adding extras which are unnecessary. It is a shame that the processing is slow, but it's what you should expect from a budget camera and I am used to an iPhone 5s. I bought this camera primary to take shots with a wrist strap without risking my iPhone, which I usually use. It would be nice to have a better screen but for the price it is reasonable and the photos are surprisingly pleasant when viewed on a good quality screen such as a computer or iPad.
Overall, I would recommend buying one for general use if you don't currently have a high-end smartphone. This is made by a very reputable manufacturer and after trying out similar-priced models from other manufacturers, I would say this is the best point and shoot camera for the price. It is a very capable camera if you are willing to put up with the issues it has.
Whilst it is possible to get into P mode it is a bit fiddly and I suspect most people will use this on fully automatic mode. Getting 8x magnification in such a small package is excellent and there is the option to go higher than that via digital. The video record function is 720 HD with basic but ok mono sound recording. The inclusion of a macro feature is an unexpected bonus. Using the camera itself in auto mode is about as simple as could be. Apart from having to turn up the brightness on the screen in bright sunlight (there is no viewfinder), I can see many people never venturing into the menu. The instructions that come with it are fairly minimal and you have to go online to download the full manual. However it is very intuitive and I was able to find my way around without consulting the start guide. It helps that there is an option to have tips / explanations display option. I was slightly surprised that no usb lead was included. I take the point that most people will already have one that will fit, and many like me will prefer to take the SD card out to transfer pictures, but for the sake of a few pence this will dent the consumer experience for some people.
So in use this is very easy. The quality of photos seems pretty good in a range of situations, and the latest software that snaps when it sees you smile is great. About the only thing I don't like is that being small and shiny metal, getting a good grip can be a little difficult. The included battery seems up to the job, but you would need to take the smallish charger with you if you intend to take more than a couple of hundred photos. Overall then, an excellent little point and shoot camera, at a good price. I like it.
a) a flash that properly illuminates a scene when you're taking photos indoors in shadow or outdoors at night
b) a powerful optical zoom that lets you close in on the action without any pixellation. the problem with digital zooms on phone cameras is that you essentially lose quality of photo if you zoom in too much
c) a camera that takes photos quickly without any delay
The Ixus is also slim and light so it doesn't feel like too much bulk. I slip it into my bag and carry it around very happily. I couldn't believe the price I got this camera either!
