and http://www.cameras.co.uk/reviews/canon-ixus-100-is.cfm

This is one of the small number of digital cameras to have a viewfinder as well as an LCD screen. I'm liking this more and more

Why was this £10 cheaper two months ago at play?

they had stock the wanted to shift? they thought that the imminent announcements of new cameras at Photokina would harm the price of their stock (but didn't as the new modes were poorly received)?

Just possibilities, I don't know why. This is a good price though.

Excellent camera, esp when you put CHDK on it to open up the possibilities

I bought this camera a month ago on so from Play when it was on here. I'm not claiming to be a whizz with photography so can't give you any spec stuff, but the photos I have taken with this camera are easily the best I have taken. Really happy with it. The video quality is pukka too, my camcorder is gathering dust now as this Canon is much handier.

Not a bad price, takes good pics, hd video is a bit soft on it though, yes i do own this camera.

I had a canon SX200IS before , hd video on that was pretty decent.

Custom firmware. Can do loads of things like take RAW images with no postprocessing.

Searching on google brings up that its a temporary firmware hack that opens up more features

CHDK stands for Canon Hack Development Kit. Details here Not something for your average typical family snapper l suggest.
#12
I've got this camera, had it for nearly a year - really good price for this!
#14
How does this compare against the 130?

Been after the 100 for a while but just never took the plunge (have an older Ixus and a 450d slr) but can't decide whether to go for this or pay the extra £35 for the 130
#15
I have this camera, it's top quality what's this CHDK? worth getting??
#16
I have the Canon IXUS 70 and this could be good for my mum.
Is it a lot better than my 70?
Thanks in advance

I love this camera pretty much.
#18
I was going to wait until next month to get a new camera (as mine is now in peices after a failed attempt at fixing a dodgy lens!) would anyone who has this camera recommend getting this now?? In other words is this worth getting or is it worth waiting around for something better?

Thanks in advance!
#19
Personally I wouldn't bother with CHDK on this camera, it's only at Beta stage and didnt really work that well when I tried it. Plus it has so many awesome features and good shutter speeds etc CHDK doesnt bring too much to the table.

I do however use CHDK on my A560, it turns it from a old entry level camera to a very capable device, mostly used for motion sensing (i.e lightning photos) or time lapse scripts.

Damm it ordered this last night at £115!

I'd get this, its a great camera. Perfect size and weight for a compact, has a nice sturdy (metal) build quality.
It takes great pictures and the extra modes like Colour Accent and Colour Swap are fun to play with too.

Only negative is the 2.5 lcd screen. Minute. A 3" is the standard (or should be)

but a 3 inch screen would make the camera bigger, this camera is the same size as a credit card :-)

The smaller screen on this makes room for an optical viewfinder which is a rarity on such compact cameras now days. This can be useful when shooting in bright sunlight of when you want to conserve the battery.

I would still wait.. by Nov the price might take a plunge. No doubt this is an excellent camera - I would like other colours than black though

I've cancelled the Sony from John Lewis and gone for this little beauty instead.....many thanks for a brill deal.

Nice camera - I have one already. It's really well built, very compact and usually takes great pictures. Recommended - but with a warning..... Does anyone know why I have so many focus problems with mine? On 'Auto' mode, it almost always thinks it is taking photos of close up objects so goes into macro mode, and as a result, takes totally out of focus pictures. It's normally when i'm indoors and using flash, but can happen at any time. It's really frustrating and i've often gone back to my trusty eight year old Olympus C-730 just because I know it'll take a decent picture without having to faff about with manual settings etc. I'm a point & click photo taker, if I want to play around with millions of settings, i'll get a DSLR or similar. I'm not the first person who has noticed this, googling has come up with similar complaints. Any pointers?

From amazon review.....

After playing with the camera and it's settings I have got to the root of the problem.
When using the 'auto mode' the flash will often not fire in situations where it is required. There is a warning on screen too tell you of impending camera shake, but despite the flash set to auto it doesn't always go off.
Set the camera to manual (the slider should be in the middle), and go into the menu (page 80 of the manual)and set 'AF Frame' to 'centre', then set 'AF Frame Size' to normal, the result is a box that appears in the centre of your screen when you press the shutter half way down, which when set on the item or person you want in focus gives you a superb picture every time and complete control over the camera, plus the fill in flash goes off every time.
Since using it this way I have not has a single bad picture and I'm happy again.
I have emailed Canon to see what can be done about it, watch this space......

Looking for a new compact and this looks good couple o0f questions

what codec is used for the HD
how much video would you get on a 8GB card
what's the shutter lag like shooting indoors in low light

H264 MPEG4-AVC (part10)
In 720p as a specualtion I'd say 45-50 mins (based on the video files I have on my computer)
The shutter lag in those situations I've found to be okay, not the best I've used but passable.
