Canon IXUS 960 IS


If you've already got the Bentley, the yacht and the big house in the country, here's that compact camera you've been looking for.

Canon's IXUS range of high-spec compacts continues to set the standard for the rest of the industry. The 960 IS has pretty much everything you need except a wide-angle lens. It is relatively expensive, but with superb design and bomb-proof build...

A stunning compact that looks as good as the images it produces. Canon has set its IXUS line back on track with this classy snapper

Canon Ixus SD950 IS 12.1Mp compact camera


Although very expensive for a compact camera - and too large for many pockets - the Canon PowerShot SD950 IS is extremely well made and performs admirably.

The Canon PowerShot SD950 is pricey for a point-and-shoot, but if you're looking for a compact camera that goes well beyond happy snaps, this is a heck of an attractive package.

Canon PowerShot SD950 IS review


Sometimes, when we find ourselves running full speed forward toward what we think is the pinnacle of achievement, we suddenly realize that we've flown closer to the sun than our wings can stand. In the current state of market-driven capitalism, we do...

Sleek design with titanium casing; great image quality; optical image stabilization; face detection; optical viewfinder.

No manual exposure controls, slightly sluggish performance.

Canon's SD950 IS looks great and can take very nice images, but the digital camera's whopping 12 megapixels will leave you waiting between shots.

We put Canon's 12 MP 3.7x image stabilisation to the test

The IXUS 960 is a portable and easy to use camera. A little less impressive in action than on paper but still quite impressive.

Canon Digital IXUS 960 IS Camera Review


The Canon Digital IXUS 960 IS combines design excellence with technical superiority. The high image quality is delivered by the outstanding 12 megapixel lens which, when coupled with the 3.7x optical zoom, results in impressive images. Its sleek design...

Movie modes include Long Play for VGA clips at 30fps and Time Lapse Movie mode which captures changing scenes, such as sunsets or flowers blooming. This can then be accelerated to playback as a smooth video clip.

Stuffed with features and with image quality to match, but is Canon's latest Ixus king of the compacts?

Canon - Digital IXUS 960 IS


It's becoming increasingly difficult, when buying compact digital cameras off the shelf, to tell one from another, as the standard rectangular silver casing seems to be the norm for the majority of the market. It therefore ...

If you haven't got the means to spend extra for a full DSLR, or if you just want a digital compact as an extra accessory, you would be hard pushed to find a better value, more stylish and higher quality performer than Canon's latest IXUS.
