Canon Digital IXUS 65


It was a fair rule of thumb that you couldn't go wrong with a Canon IXUS, but has the IXUS 65 changed all that?

PC Plus review: Canon IXUS 65


Everything has its price, but even with the discounting, build and picture quality, we feel the new IXUS 65 falls behind on value and versatility.

Canon Ixus 65 digital camera - FIRST LOOK


Canon has launched three new Ixus models as a part of its 2006 Spring Collection, but the Ixus 65 stands out from the crowd as it's the first canon camera to be geared towards the “gadget” crowd. So has Canon got it right? Pocket-lint was given a...

Large screen, ISO High setting

Screen not as crisp as it could have been, controls are a bit squashed

Canon Digital Ixus 65 review


Another case of style over substance?

Excellent build quality ; Stylish appearance

Risk of camera shake ; Tiny controls

This is an ideal point-and-click style compact for the casual photographer

Canon PowerShot SD630 review


PowerShot SD600

Great photos; relatively quick; plenty of features; large LCD.

Awkward zoom control; slightly cramped buttons; no optical viewfinder.

The Canon PowerShot SD630 shoehorns a relatively broad set of features, solid performance, and great image quality into an attractive ultracompact package.

Canon IXUS 65


The Canon IXUS 65 is a pocket sized camera. One of its main attractions is its large three inch LCD screen. The camera has six megapixels and a three times optical zoom lens. This is one of my top rated pocket sized models.

Picture quality ; Style ; Build quality ; Very large LCD screen

Small SD card supplied with camera

"If you are looking for a pocket sized digital camera then the Canon IXUS 65 is well worth a close look. The picture quality and the build quality of the camera are right up there with the very best. The camera does not come cheap, but in my view it...

Review: Canon Ixus 65


Ten years on and Canon are still bringing out their Ixus range. That makes it one of the most enduring designs in the camera world but how does the Ixus 65 fare against the new kids on the block?

Huge screen, quality images, easy controls

No image stabiliser, colours can look a bit too much, other cameras offer better styling

The Canon Ixus 65 delivers beautiful pictures that are packed with detail far beyond what you might expect from a 6MP compact. The camera feels good in your hand and looks attractive and all the controls are well laid out and easy to use. While I had...
