Most helpful reviews

John, Point & shoot

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Bought to replace a great little camera IXUS 850IS, which died due to being dropped - needed a small(ish) wide angle with telephoto capacity and I always had good results and it certainly looks as though this does the trick.
Lots of features.
Valus for money
Bad points:
Not as well constructed as my previous IXUS, which was metal and being slightly narrower its is not as easy to hold and use as the previous IXUS. Liked the weight of the previous one as well.
I find speed of access to the features not as easy as before, the very important wrist strap is not as good as before - no slide width fitting so can slip off the wrist - concern that the wrist strap bracket on camera will break due to being plastic.
Video button too easy to activate which is a pain.
