The Ixus 300 HS is fun to use, and the photos it takes are generally pretty satisfactory. Its own real problem is that other cameras can do better, so if it's going to succeed, it'll have to hope that its status as an all-rounder can compensate...

Priced at Rs. 24,995, it’s an extremely expensive point and shoot camera. If you’re looking for something really compact and at the same time sturdy and captures decent images, then the IXUS 300 HS is a model worth considering. Good overall...

This IXUS device that came to us for review is a continuation of the IXUS generation known more for its stylish and sleek design along with its performance. However, what strikes you first is the 24k price bracket that makes you mindfully want to...

The Canon IXUS 300 HS impresses in a number of areas. These include design and build quality. There are one or two issues with picture quality when the camera is pushed to its limits. These stop me from awarding this camera an outstanding rating, but...

There's no denying the Canon IXUS 300 HS / SD4000 IS is a good solid compact. It combines the slick build and great auto modes of the IXUS / ELPH range, but adds much faster continuous shooting, manual controls and superior low light capabilities to...

This High Speed IXUS is a gem of a compact camera that delivers continuous shooting and some interesting HD video features. Unfortunately you pay a high price for the privilege of owning these exotic features and we suspect you won't use them all...

This is a fine little camera. Panasonic were first to have the nerve to drop out of the pixel race and fit their top compact with a 10mp sensor. Canon quickly followed suit with the G11, S90 and now the Ixus 300HS. And now Samsung has fitted its top...

The SD4000 IS fits into a very well established line of cameras that have tended to get good reviews for being dependable, well-polished little cameras. And, despite our sample's matte-black finish, the SD4000 IS has that same lustre. It does...

Combining high quality with high style, Canon has integrated an f/2 lens into a compact Digital ELPH design and called it the PowerShot SD4000. Don't let the Canon SD4000's diminutive size and attractive touchable design fool you; it's...
