Canon IXUS 300 HS review

 

Canon's latest Ixus camera is somewhat confusingly named. The HS doesn't stand for either ‘high speed' or ‘high sensitivity', yet the device does support high-speed video and has a high-sensitivity lens for taking photos in very low light.

Great in low-light conditions

Slow focus; too bright flash
