Written on: 25/01/2007 by coemgenus (23 reviews written)

I bought the Ixus 55 camera after looking at several in this price range by Canon, Sony and others. On first taking the camera in my hand, I was immediately struck by the high quality construction and flawless finish. The same thought that has gone into engineering the camera hardware is evident in the software too. It is possible to start taking snaps immediately thanks to the excellent and intuitive automatic modes. Most importantly, the images produced are very good indeed thanks to the… Read Full Review

“I upgraded to the Canon Ixus 55 5MP digital camera...”

Written on: 24/02/2006 by PJH (1 review written)

I upgraded to the Canon Ixus 55 5MP digital camera three months ago. The metallic casework and controls exude quality - very nice! What I found striking over my old camera (Casio EX-Z3) was the improvement in the quality of the images. Although the resolution is greater, it was the improvement in colour balance and vibrancy etc., that was most noticeable (pixel resolution is no guarantee of picture quality). In all, this camera has a much more realistic image capture.

As ever, the slight… Read Full Review
