The Canon Ixus V is an old digital camera camera now, so on paper it's 2.1 mega-pixel resolution seems poor in comparison to modern cameras, which may come with anything up to 8Mp or beyond, but let's not be blinded by that. 2.1Mp is more than enough for a quality image to fill a computer screen, or for a good quality A4 print. Moreover, there is much more to a quality digital image than resolution alone, and many cheaper modern cameras still deliver a worse picture, even if on paper they... (read more)

This Canon Ixus V Digital Camera has been alltogether nice to own. Unfortunately, the quality of the picture (2.2 Megapixels) do not match up to today's technical avantgarde. It must be mentioned, that alltogether it has been a great deal the camera. Easy to operate, though it takes a while to understand that in order to take a moving picture, the launch button must be depressed a little bit before being depressed fully. Also if you want to take many pictures in a row, turn the flash off (it... (read more)

The Canon Ixus V is a great little digital camera. I have owned the Ixus V since it was first released and paid over £350 for it. The picture quality is excellent for 2.1 MP. the movie function is great and allows good little snippits of video action. You have a point and shoot mode for newbies as well as a semi manual mode for the more advanced user. (this is quite limited though)
The only things that lets the camera down for me is the lack of optical zoom (limited to 2x) although most... (read more)

Excellent picture quality. Since purchasing the Canon Ixus V in September have only actually printed off 2 pictures from over 750 taken. Very easy to use digital camera by anyone not technically biased, and the movie feature provides great memories of those special moments.
If buying additional memory though don't go to the shops - buy on the web at www.crucial.com (read more)

This little Canon Ixus V digital camera packs a big punch. It has loads of facilities for such a small camera such as Movie with sound and the ability to make it as easy or as complicated to use as you like. The quality is excellent both in the pics taken and the feel of the camera. It has a very rugged aluminium shell that also makes it look the dogs b£$$lks. Well worth it, but if you want really high definition pics than go for 3.1mp or higher. I bought mine in the Carribean for $300 brand... (read more)

The Canon Ixus V is an excellent compact digital camera from Canon. This camera supercedes the original Digital Ixus and has the added advantage of movie mode with sound! I have not really used this feature and use the camera more for taking photos.
The quality of the photos is excellent. My 64MB CF card can hold approx. 400 photos of medium resolution and compression. I have had some photos printed at Boots and the quality is actually better than my previous Canon APS compact.
