Nick, london Point & shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I bought this for underwater use and the ease of use and access to controls is excellent. Picture quality is amazing compared with my previous Olympus muji.
Bad points:
strangely enough, the buttons are more easier to manipulate when the camera is IN the underwater housing.

Very light compact camera. Whilst it is not Canon's latest model, on average it produces excellent quality photos

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The Digital IXUS 100 IS delivers exceptional style in an ultra-slim form. Beautiful photos are made easy by a host of intelligent Canon technologies, and can be supplemented by stunning HD video.

Exceptionally slender

With its ultra-slim metallic form, the Digital IXUS 100 IS takes digital camera design to new heights of elegance. Its combination of supremely slender profile and high performance is achieved by a combination of Canon technologies, including two special glass-molded UA lenses. Choose from four colours: silver, black, red and gold.*

12.1 Megapixels

A resolution of 12.1 MP captures every scene in rich amounts of detail. Turn images into poster-size prints, or creatively crop images without losing the detail necessary for larger prints.

3.0x zoom

A 3.0x optical zoom lens gives you framing flexibility when composing shots. Canons in-lens optical Image Stabilizer works to deliver blur-free results throughout the zoom range.

Scene Detection Technology for effortless ease

Smart Auto mode uses intelligent Scene Detection Technology to determine subject brightness, contrast, distance and overall hue. The camera then searches an incredible 18 possible modes, and selects the one which offers the perfect settings for the scene.

High speed processing

Canons DIGIC 4 processor drives exceptional processing speeds, responsive operation, superb image quality and colour reproduction. Richly detailed, cleaner images, even at high ISO speeds, are the result of advanced Noise Reduction.

Anti-blur

The Digital IXUS 100 IS combats blur with Motion Detection Technology. Activated in Smart Auto mode, this uses a range of technologies to ascertain movement of both camera and subject. The optimum ISO is then automatically set for any situation.

Face Detection Technology

A suite of Face Detection technologies detects faces in a shot and adjusts focus, exposure, flash settings and white balance for optimal results with natural-looking skin tones. Blink Detection lets you avoid the disappointment of mistimed people shots. FaceSelf-Timer makes group photos and self-portraits easy, taking the shot when an extra face is detected in the frame.

2.5 LCD

Frame and review shots with a bright 2.5 PureColor LCD II. A wide viewing angle lets you easily share images with friends.

i-Contrast

Canons i-Contrast feature offers improved contrast and greater detail in tricky lighting conditions.

HD movies in stereo

Create smooth, high quality movies in high definition (1280×720, 30fps), then connect the optional HDMI cable for playback on HD widescreen TVs.
