“The Canon Ixus 400 is knocking on now but I feel...”

Written on: 17/08/2009 by fusioneer (4 reviews written)

The Canon Ixus 400 is knocking on now but I feel compelled to review it (and give it good marks) for a possibly strange reason - it's broken! At the age of five, and well beyond the reach of any sensible guarantee, my camera has developed a CCD fault which means any picture I take now is heavily distorted and unusable. BUT, and this is the reason for the good review - despite the age of the camera Canon have agreed to repair it for free! They've recognised this is a common fault relating to… Read Full Review

Nice review and story too (LOL!). My friend have bought this kind of camera and he had no complain with it at all. Ixus has top of the line quality. Thanks for this review

I have had the Canon Ixus 400 for just over 2 years, at first i liked it but now it is very large compared with the new cameras on the market. As much as i think it is a good camera it takes a long time to take the pictures and it is a also very heavy… Read Full Review

Great camera! I've had this Canon Ixus 400 for 3 years and now have a 1MG card so you can take as many pics as you like! Very reliable and good quality pictures. This camera is more than adequate for general use, even if they now have newer models with larger pixels etc. Battery charges quickly and lasts ages. This is the best digital camera I've had. I had Kodak before but far prefer the Canon… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/11/2004 by madra (2 reviews written)

The Canon Ixus 400 really is a superb wee camera. I looked at quite a few compact digitals of similar spec in this price range and ended up opting for the ixus' because of its superior design and build quality and over a year on I haven't been disappointed. the camera takes superb pictures and is small enough to carry anywhere in a coat or jeans pocket. the menus are straightforward and easy to navigate and the provided settings are fine for the novice or amateur.

This Canon Ixus 400 Digital camera is great. Its small and sturdy, and can withstand the knocks and bumps I have subjected it to. Its has a good range of settings, good for all types of user (novice, intermediate, advanced). You can choose the quality and size settings of your pictures before you take them. This can save on memory. Transferring pictures to a computer is really quick and easy to do. The menu is easy to use and it doesn't take long to pick up everything you need to know.

Written on: 27/12/2003 by nakedtoes (1 review written)

I have seriously considering a compact camera which can produce superb photo quality. Some of my chioce are PENTAX OPTIO S4, CANNON IXUS 400 and CASIO XILIM Z4. I ranked image quality as my first choice thus i forgo the 2 Inch LCD of the casio and the slimness of the PENTAX. The Canon Ixus 400's manual control is quite fun too. U can adjust shutter speed up to 15sec, adjust explosure, white balance too. Furthermore it comes with a free 128 CF card and $50 cheaper then the PENTAX. I would said… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/12/2003 by patmiester (1 review written)

I bought this Canon Ixus 400 digital camera before the price drop (£350) and I thought it was good value then! I recently used this camera at my cousins wedding and took over 100 photos on the one battery and the quality of the prints is outstanding. I have read that some people have had problems with the delay of the autofocus, well if you use the focus lock you can take a picture instantly. If you are looking for a small compact camera that takes great pictures this is it… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/10/2003 by Muarrij (1 review written)

This Canon Ixus 400 camera is awesome, especially at the new low prices just released. The picture quality and vividness of colours is truely amazing. The night shots using manual settings are excellent and this camera is equally well suited to both amateurs and professionals.
Its light and small architecture make this an extremely portable camera. The optical zoom is amazing and the lens used is crystal clear.
I would recommend this camera easily over the Casio Z4 - which is almost the same… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/10/2003 by aguamineral (1 review written)

I have an slr (nikon F70) with a 28-200 zoom. I love to take pictures but unfortunatly, I never travel with my camera (so big, turist look, etc). I have bought this ixus 400 and I am very very pleased. I carry it everywere, and the quality is superb (although I miss manual control). It was hard to decide to go for the Casio R-40 (€399) or the Ixus (€540). Finally I've choosen the canon because the Casio has a strong blue "gloom" when taking flash pictures, and that really buther me.

Do you find that this camera has the features needed to keep a more experienced photographer amused?
<br>Shutter priority, aperture priority? and does it have creative modes? I have been looking into the and the PowerShot A80 and seem to find that The IXUS 400, although costing more it actually has less features? what are your thoughts on that?

Written on: 30/08/2003 by kandaq (1 review written)

I bought this camera about 3 months ago. I love the small size of the camera. Makes it easy to carry around. It's also very solid, and is heavy enough to make it feel pricey. The body uses a new kind of material which is said to be scratch proof, unlike the previous models.

The interface is very simple. You can snap photos without learning much. But to use the manual settings to get better photos, I advised that you read the user manual, which covers just about every functionality that comes… Read Full Review

What can be said about this camera that has not already.

A lovely bit of tech, well impressed. Its just so small but powerful, i challenge anyone to find a same spec camera that is better.

I bought it online from [url]http://www.cameras2u.com[/url] on wednesday morning arrived next day, delivery is free and it was the cheapest i could find at £340 a massive saving of £110 rrp.

well pleased

I am very impressed with the Canon IXUS 400 so far having ordered from cameras direct (http://www.camerasdirect.co.uk/)last week. Operation is simplicity itself and the image quality appears to be great. The camera looks fantastic and is very portable like all IXUS types. I would have no hesitation in recommending this camera… Read Full Review
