Canon IXUS 220 HS

 

Slim and well built for its class, this isn't a stand-out camera but one that's certainly worth considering.

HDMI output, Good low-light performance, Suitable for camera beginners

Average speed performance, Some loss of sharpness at edges

Canon IXUS 220 HS

 

Squeezed between the £150 Canon IXUS 115 HS pocket point and shoot and £250 Canon IXUS 310 HS touchscreen model in Canon's current line up of style and substance digital compacts is the equally new IXUS 220 HS. It has a street price around the £170...

Fair value given the better than expected feature set and noise free performance in lower light, good build quality, larger than average buttons for an ultra compact

Lack of handgrip, small-ish 2.7-inch screen, no 3D mode

This competent user-friendly model has slightly more than one might expect from a typical “auto everything” camera lurking under its proverbial bonnet. Smart Auto is a reliable mode if all you want to engage in is happy snapping - automatically...

Canon IXUS 300 HS compact camera

 

Canon's latest IXUS combines a stylish design and manual controls with both 720p HD and slow-motion video capture, plus its HS designation means an astonishing 8.4 frames per second still frames capture is also possible. The Canon IXUS 300 HS certainly...

Good pictures, stylish design, fun slow-mo video

Expensive, limited resolution for slow-motion and full high speed stills capture, limited 3.8x zoom

The Canon IXUS 300 HS certainly meets up to the implication of high speed in its name, though it is worth noting the lower resolutions for the speediest burst modes and when capturing slow-motion video. The camera still has a fast 3.7fps burst mode and...

Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS review

 

Canon was falling a bit behind with its PowerShot Elph series of ultracompact cameras. Not in photo quality, but with features, shooting performance, and overall value. For 2011, though, Canon snapped back thanks to the addition of backside-illuminated...

The Canon PowerShot Elph 300 HS is a fun-to-use ultracompact with excellent photo quality even if just left in auto.

The 300 HS might be too small for some, and accessing its shooting modes other than auto is laborious.

If you're looking for a nice, simple ultracompact for use indoors and out, you'll want to strongly consider the Canon PowerShot Elph 300 HS.

Canon Ixus 220 HS review

 

Not much of an improvement over the excellent Ixus 115 HS, but on its own terms the 220 HS is hard to fault

Canon IXUS 220 HS review

 

The Canon IXUS 220 HS is a 12Mp compact that's slim, well built and easy to use. It doesn't have a lot of manual features, so it's a true point-and-shoot camera, but you can fiddle with the ISO speed, focus mode, white balance and colour output if you...

The key aspects of the Canon IXUS 220 HS camera are its thin frame, which makes it very easy to carry in a trouser pocket, and its image quality, which is clear and vibrant. It has a retail price of £169, but if you're after a good quality, slim,...

Canon Ixus 300 HS review

 

Great looks and operational simplicity, plus image quality to rival enthusiast-oriented compacts – it's a little on the pricey side though.

These photos were better than those from most point-and-shoot cameras, but the difference wasn’t as big as we’d hoped. That’s partly because the Canon’s wide f/2 aperture is only available for wide-angle shots. Zoomed in, it narrows to f/5.3, which...

Canon IXUS 220 HS

 

If you're keen on capturing real reference material whilt out, then Canon's compact device will be right up your street.

Alternatively, as well as Program mode, which gives the user the greatest level of control, there’s a healthy selection of shooting modes available including options suited for use when shooting on the beach or underwater (using the optional waterproof...

Canon IXUS 220 HS review

 

The Canon IXUS 220HS is a very capable point-and-shoot camera that produces well-detailed, natural-looking images. If you're after a pocket-sized camera to keep with you that is fast and requires little manual interaction, then this camera is worth...
