Canon Digital IXUS 850 IS

 

The Canon Digital IXUS 850 IS puts an optically stabilised, wide-angle lens into a pocketable package.

Good focal range for lens ; Quick performance ; Optical image stabilisation ; Attractive design

Few manual controls ; Extremely noisy photos at ISO 1600

In addition to the flexible lens, the IXUS 850 IS has some handy snapshot features. The camera's sensor can be boosted to as high as ISO 1,600 for low-light or high-movement shots, though you'll want to keep it at ISO 800 or lower because of image...

I love it. It is small enough to take in pocket or handbag Took work Christmas party pics with it on night settings came out excellent everybody wanted a set of the pics. Like the viewfinder as well as screen ; Recommended it to family and friends and...

Great build, solid metal and great design. Viewfinder is a plus. Great detail, very quick and good battery life

Lack of manual options, needs tweaking with indoor/night shots. Scene settings take care of these problems
