Canon Digital IXUS 40

 

The Canon IXUS 40 represents a ‘breakthrough in lens technology' according to Canon. It features an all-new lens technology that helped to ensure the camera is kept extremely small yet retains good optical quality.

Excellent image quality, metering and AF combine with full manual control (if you want it) and wrapped in a very stylish package to boot.

Disappointingly fuzzy optical viewfinder and plastic battery/memory card bay cover mar an otherwise excellent package.

It's all very well having bags of new technology, but does the camera work properly and are the pictures any good?

Canon IXUS 40

 

Canon IXUS 40 is a pocket sized digital camera. It has four megapixels and a three times optical zoom lens.

Slim style ; Build quality ; Large LCD screen

Buttons on the back of the camera could be confusing

Ultra slim digital camera. Produces good all round pictures and is easy enough to use. If style is one of your key buying points then take a good look at this model.

Canon - Digital IXUS 40

 

Before we go anywhere with this review let's be quite clear that this reviewer is a big fan of Canon's digital cameras, and a long term user of the IXUS series, currently being an IXUS 500 ...

As a fan of Canon, this reviewer loves this IXUS, and when the 5-megapixel model comes along, may well consider trading in my current camera. This model wins over the IXUS 500 as it is smaller and much more pocket-friendly, and because its large screen...

Canon pulls off a hat trick here by offering a fun picture-taking experience, good-quality images nearly every time and a stylish design that almost makes the Ixus 40 a fashion accessory. But overall, the complete p

Canon PowerShot SD300 Digital Elph

 

A reliable pocket camera for casual snapshot takers.

Ultracompact; solid battery life; excellent burst capabilities; low shutter lag; versatile movie mode.

Few manual controls or scene modes; inaccurate viewfinder with no diopter adjustment.

Putting excellent performance in an ultracompact package, the SD300 should please photographers who don't want manual controls or plentiful scene modes.

Canon PowerShot SD300 Digital Elph

 

Megapixels: 4, Maximum Resolution: 2272 x 1704 pixels, Included Memory Amount: 16 MB, Included Memory: Media Card, ...

Excellent daylight images and very good flash shots. Good menus. Tiny and tough.

Mediocre recycle times. Smallish LCD, Optical viewfinder placement could be better.

The Canon PowerShot SD300 Digital Elph takes great pictures, despite its tiny size. It's stylish, built like a very small tank, and fun to use.
