Canon IXUS Wireless


The latest IXUS still looks great and can beam your photos through the air - it doesn't come cheap though.

Canon Digital Ixus Wireless review


The camera with built-in wireless

Wireless connectivity

Camera features inadequate

The addition of wireless can't quite make up for its inadequacies elsewhere

Canon SD430/IXUS Wireless


Excellent image quality.Very functional wireless capability with Canon printers and Windows XP SP2.Reliable metering.Up to 15 second long exposures.Very compact and well-finished.

Built-in flash lacks power.Some noise as of 100 ISO with flash photography.Icons on 4-direction controller's surface too difficult to see.

Canon PowerShot SD430 Digital Elph Wireless


The SD430 Digital Elph Wireless lets you wirelessly transmit photos to a computer, network, or printer.

Very good picture quality. Speedy performance.

Should include more ease-of-use features that help with connecting and troubleshooting wireless. Expensive for a 5MP camera. ; Watch the Canon PowerShot SD430 Video Review!

Powershot SD430 Digital Camera


The PowerShot SD430 Digital Elph Wireless is the latest in Canon's popular range of Digital Elph point-and-shoot cameras. Like many other camera companies, Canon has been adding wireless functionality to its cameras, and the SD430 comes with a built-in...

At $500, the SD430 is a bit on the expensive side for a 5-megapixel camera, and you seem to be paying a big premium for the wireless features. It's $100 more than the Nikon P2, which also includes wireless. However, in our tests the Canon had a slight...

Canon PowerShot Digital Elph review


Canon PowerShot Digital Elph

Wi-Fi capability includes full remote control and capture; ultracompact design; excellent burst capabilities; low shutter lag.

Cannot e-mail from camera as with Kodak's EasyShare One; no remote capture via USB; few manual controls or scene modes; image quality far from stellar.

The Canon SD430 is the only consumer-level choice out there for wireless remote shooting and capture, but it's an otherwise average camera.
