Score 10.0/10
Good points:
excellent picture quality and very easy to use but if you want more out of your camera there are plenty of added features that can improve picture quality.
Bad points:
this was a replacement for my canon ixus5.5 which i had for a couple of years only reason i had to replace it was i because i broke the screen! i was slightly disappointed that the 7.7 ixus has cheap black plastic parts where as the 5.5 had metal parts though the reduction in price made up for it.

Confirmed purchaser

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I found all features of the camera easy to use once you've explored the menu a few times. Very impressed with the quality off the different shooting modes, came in very handy when out in the snow and lots of indoor photos in different environments.
Bad points:
About 10 out of 300 photos came out slightly out of focus. Not sure why, maybe it was my own fault.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Don't need to read the manual
Did not know about some features - very pleasant suprise re face search and auto rotate
Bad points:
A little too fat - would be better if it fit easier into a pocket. It is still small though - maybe the protective case could be slimmer.

The essence of IXUS

Refined IXUS style
The Digital IXUS 70 brings contemporary styling to the classic IXUS design concept. Clean lines and sharp edges combine in an ultra slim body to achieve a look of understated, timeless elegance.

7.1 Megapixels
A 7.1 Megapixel CCD sensor captures every scene with razor sharp detail, for photo quality prints up to poster size.

Ultra compact 3x optical zoom
An Ultra-High Refractive Index Aspherical (UA) 3x optical zoom lens delivers crystal-clear performance in an exceptionally compact form.

DIGIC III with iSAPS
Canon’s DIGIC III processor provides lightning quick responses, superb image quality and advanced noise reduction for sharper, clearer images. iSAPS technology analyses each scene to optimise key camera settings even before a shot is taken.

Face Detection AF/AE/FE
Face Detection AF/AE/FE ensures superb people shots by automatically detecting the subjects in the frame and selecting the optimum focus, exposure and flash settings for the scene. My Category tags each image based on face detection and shooting mode for easy navigation, printing, deleting and more.

Red-Eye Correction
During playback Face Detection Technology allows you to quickly and accurately correct red-eye.

2.5" LCD
A high resolution (230,000 pixels) PureColor LCD displays richer, vivid colours with sharp definition. An anti-glare, scratch-resistant coating adds extra protection against knocks and scrapes.

Sharp low-light shooting
Shoot clear, bright images in dim conditions with ISO 1600 – ideal for parties and restaurants or where flash photography is not allowed. Use ISO Auto Shift to avoid image blur with the touch of a button whenever camera shake is predicted.

Shooting modes and My Colors
Choose from 17 shooting modes including a range of Special Scene modes, optimised for specific shooting situations. Apply in-camera colour effects to images and movies with My Colors.

Movies
Shoot long VGA movies with sound. Use the Time Lapse Movie function to capture changing scenes – a flowers bloom, drifting clouds or a bustling city street – for accelerated playback as smooth video clips.

Shortcut button
The customisable Shortcut button provides one-touch access to your favourite shooting options. Assignable functions include exposure compensation, white balance and instant Movie shooting.
