Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Wide angle is a very good feature.
Bad points:
The photos in difficult light can be grainy even at low ISO levels. I've got other Canons that have had much better quality images. There's significant barrel distortion at full wide angle.

8.0 Megapixels
An 8.0 Megapixel CCD sensor captures in high resolution for large photo lab quality prints.

Wide-angle lens with optical IS
A 28mm (equivalent) wide-angle lens with 3.8x zoom enables the capture of large scenes from closer range. Canon’s optical Image Stabilizer (IS) technology counteracts camera shake for blur-free shots at slower shutter speeds and full zoom.

Modern styling
The striking design of the Digital IXUS 860 IS contrasts smooth, simple lines with bold black edges. The large, square controls are easy to access and a Touch Control Dial enables fingertip control of key camera functions.

Total anti-blur solution
In tandem with IS, user-selected Auto ISO Shift offers enhanced protection against camera shake. ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto protect against camera shake during longer exposures, as well as blur caused by typical subject movement.

DIGIC III with Face Detection AF/AE/FE
Canon’s DIGIC III processor provides lightning quick responses, superb image quality and advanced noise reduction for sharper, clearer images. Face Detection AF/AE/FE and iSAPS analyse the scene, detect subjects in the frame and select the optimum focus, exposure and flash settings.

Red-Eye Correction
When operating in playback mode, Face Detection Technology allows you to quickly and accurately correct red-eye without affecting the rest of the image.

PureColor LCD
A bright 3" high resolution (230,000 pixels) PureColor LCD screen has improved colour reproduction, and offers a wide viewing angle for easy framing and review. An anti-glare, scratch-resistant coating aids visibility in bright light and adds extra protection against knocks and scrapes.

Shooting modes and My Colors
17 shooting modes including Beach, Portrait and Kids & Pets aid the capture of still images in tricky lighting conditions. My Colors in-camera photo effects can be applied both during and after shooting.

Movie options
Movie modes include Long Play (LP) for VGA (30fps) clips that use half the normal memory card space, and Time Lapse Movie which captures changing scenes – such as a flower’s bloom or a bustling city street – for accelerated playback as smooth video clips.

Safety Zoom and Digital Tele-Converter
Safety Zoom offers extra zoom magnification without affecting image quality. The Digital Tele-Converter adds extra telephoto capability – just like adding a tele-converter lens to the camera.
