Canon IXUS 120 IS review

 

It's pretty, but just how deep does this compact's beauty go?

Beautiful looks ; Neat design ; Excellent image quality ; Good videos ; Useful shooting modes

Expensive ; Too small for some hands ; Awkward buttons ; No manual controlsl ; Flash easy to obscure

Canon IXUS 120 IS review

 

It comes with a brace of premium trimmings, including a Canon DiG!C 4 processor, optical image stabilisation, advanced Face Detection and a 720p HD video mode. While manual options are pretty thin on the ground, the Canon IXUS 120 IS excels as a...

With the exception of its premium price tag, the Canon IXUS 120 IS compact digital camera is pretty hard to fault. It looks amazing and is capable of taking some breathtaking photos. What's more, it will fit in practically any pocket.

Canon PowerShot SD940 IS review

 

A follow-up of sorts to the SD780 IS , the Canon PowerShot SD940 IS is another very small, very lightweight 12-megapixel camera. It drops the SD780's optical viewfinder, and in its place gets a larger 2.7-inch LCD in back, and a wide-angle...

Very small; simple operation; very good photo, HD movie quality; HDMI out.

No optical zoom in Movie mode; mixed performance.

One of the best ultracompacts available, the Canon PowerShot SD940 IS nonetheless falls short of greatness in performance and photo quality.

Canon IXUS 120 IS

 

Canon cuts no corners with the latest in its IXUS range

The fashion-conscious have never had it so good. Designed with portability in mind, the IXUS 120 IS hasn't shed features in favour of size, making it an attractive proposition for all.

The Canon Digital IXUS 120 IS is a 12MP ultra-compact camera with 1/2.3-inch CCD. It has a 4x optical zoom with wideangle setting (28mm equivalent) and a 2.7-inch, 230,000 dot LCD screen. It captures HD-ready (720p) movies, and has a mini-HDMI output....

If you simply want great photos, superb ease of use and a camera with a higher IQ than your typical Oxford student, the 120 IS is a sure thing. Just don’t expect blistering speed along with it. Canon Digital IXUS 120 IS is tagged with Canon Digital...

Canon PowerShot SD940 IS

 

The Canon PowerShot SD940 IS may be tiny (think cell-phone size), but it packs lots of goodies.

Very small build. Simple user interface. Fast shooting speeds. HD video capture. Mini-HDMI out.

Small control buttons. Images are soft.
