Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS digital camera

 

The Canon IXUS 950 IS updates the almost identical IXUS 850 IS with another million pixels and a new 4x optical zoom lens. Other key features include optical image stabilisation, a very clear, bright and easy to see 2.5-inch colour screen plus 18-scene...

Build and design, image stabilisation, low ISO image quality

Lacks manual controls even in manual mode, image noise above ISO 800, lens softness at edges and not wide enough field of view, scene modes smooth away detail, AiAF accuracy

On the final analyses, the 950 IS looks expensive at £329, though, as always, try shopping around and you’ll find it for much less. It also has a few too many foibles for me to be able to heartily recommend it. The less-wide lens is problematic and the...

Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS Camera Review

 

The curved styling of the Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS sets this camera apart. A three-tone metallic finish tops off a refined design that encases advanced technologies and powerful performance.

The Digital IXUS 950 IS has a useful Shortcut button that enables swift, one-touch access to your favourite options and shooting modes, allowing you to customise the camera to your needs.

Review: Canon Digital Ixus 950 IS digital camera

 

An ultra-compact camera with cutting-edge features

Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS

 

The Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS has just about everything you'd want in a point-and-shoot.

Great performance and image quality ; Solid image stabilisation ; Face detection

No manual exposure controls ; On/off button a bit awkward ; Noisy images at ISO 1,600

There's very little to complain about on the IXUS 950 IS. Fans of ultracompacts, such as Sony's T-series, might complain that this Canon isn't small enough, but given its excellent image quality and speedy performance, we're not complaining. Also,...

Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS Review

 

The Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS is an 8 megapixel digital camera with a 2.5 inch LCD screen and an optical viewfinder (now an increasingly rare feature on compact cameras). The IXUS 950 IS ...

The flagship Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS admittedly looks a little expensive compared against its 8 megapixel rivals, some of which are more than 100 cheaper, but it doesn't seem to have halted Canon's inexorable ...

Canon Digital IXUS 950IS

 

Solid build quality, compact - pocketable size without compromising image quality

Face detect focussing is not always perfect. Would have liked more manual control ie shutter speed / aperture settings

Canon Digital IXUS 950IS

 

Fantastic Lcd, great range of features, good image quality and solid build

Expensive, larger than other compact cameras, and occasional shadowing on the upper extremities of images taken indoor with flash

Canon Digital IXUS 950IS

 

Very neat, solidly-built camera with large display. Also features an optical viewfinder, becoming very rare in a point-and-shoot. Includes loads of features – far too many to mention, but you can literally point and shoot in full auto and get very...

The number of features and how to access them will take a while to learn, but you can literally point and shoot in full auto and get very impressive results
