[COLOR=DarkRed]Manufacturer's Description[/COLOR]

[COLOR=DarkRed]7.1 Megapixels[/COLOR]
A 7.1 Megapixel CCD sensor captures every scene with enough fine detail for large photo quality prints.

[COLOR=DarkRed]Wide-angle lens with optical IS[/COLOR]
A 28mm (equivalent) wide-angle lens with 3.8x zoom takes in more of every scene. Canon's optical Image Stabilizer (IS) technology counteracts camera shake for steady shots at slower shutter speeds and full zoom.

[COLOR=DarkRed]IXUS Styling[/COLOR]
Sleek, smart and elegant, the Digital IXUS 850 IS is finished in an all-metal body with the rounded contours of the IXUS 'Perpetual Curve' design.

[COLOR=DarkRed]DIGIC III Processor[/COLOR]
Canon's best of breed DIGIC III processor provides lightning quick responses, superb image quality and advanced noise reduction for sharper, clearer images. iSAPS technology analyses each scene to optimise key camera settings even before a shot is taken.

[COLOR=DarkRed]Face Detection AF/AE[/COLOR]
Face Detection AF/AE ensures superb people shots by automatically detecting the subjects in the frame and setting the optimum focus and exposure. "My Category" tags each image based on face detection and shooting mode for easy image navigation, printing, deleting and much more.

[COLOR=DarkRed]Large LCD[/COLOR]
The high resolution 2.5" LCD screen features a wide viewing angle for easy group viewing. The Image Inspection Tool enables instant checks for image sharpness.

[COLOR=DarkRed]Shooting modes[/COLOR]
Choose from 17 shooting modes including Special Scene modes to help with tricky lighting conditions, such as Night Snapshot and Snow. Shoot smooth VGA (30fps) and QVGA (60fps) video with Movie mode.

[COLOR=DarkRed]My Colors[/COLOR]
Apply special in-camera colour effects both during and after shooting. Lighten skin tones in portraits, or add extra vibrancy to blue skies for stunning, punchy landscapes.

[COLOR=DarkRed]Flash-free low light shooting[/COLOR]
A low-noise ISO 1600 setting combines with optical IS to enable flash-free shooting indoors and at night. High ISO Auto mode automatically sets an optimal high ISO setting to allow for faster shutter speeds, further reducing the effects of camera shake.

[COLOR=DarkRed]Safety Zoom[/COLOR]
Safety Zoom takes advantage of the camera's large resolution to offer extra zoom magnification without affecting image quality. Capture images at up to 7.3x zoom with enough detail for lab-quality postcard (10 x 15cm) prints. Capture VGA quality stills for TV playback at 15x zoom.

[COLOR=DarkRed]Direct Printing[/COLOR]
Connect to any PictBridge compatible photo printer and push the Print/Share button for instant photolab quality prints.
Is it just me, or does £200 for a camera seem really expensive.

Probably just me, but after the Sony W70 @ £90 last week which looks a very similar camera, I am confused.

Sorry OP, not slating you.

Have to agree, as good as this camera is I just couldn't justify the extra.
great price as i got mine for 165 from bangkok last month - original of course and the camera is great, so easy to use - and very light too. voted hot.

IXUS cameras are awesome. My brother and his girlfriend have one, my wife and I have one and my parents have one. We've all been buying IXUS through a number of models because:

1. We haven't had one break yet

2. The software is very easy to use and understand

3. They use normal memory cards, not funny Sony ones.

4. Image stabilisation is a godsend - we use these cameras without stands in low light and when skiing. With other models you can get a lot of blurring, meaning the shot is ruined. With these, all your pictures come out clear, even if your hand is shaking or moving while you snap.

5. Battery life is very impressive

6. There are a number of innovative things I haven't seen elsewhere. For example, when you are viewing pictures, the LCD screen can tell which way up you are holding the camera, so rotates and scales the picture you are previewing accordingly. Nifty stuff.

Of course, other camera makes will have their fans, but I'm always going to buy Canon's IXUS range.
Voted Hot!

The Ixus range are probably some of the best Compact Digital Camera's on the Market at the moment. I paid about £225 for this a few months ago with various vouchers (whilst it was still 'on sale' in Jessops for over £300!).
Not a bad deal but I preferred to pay the extra £20 and went for an IXUS 950 IS for £219 instead.

There's a review on The Register Hardware

Canon UK website
I got myself a Canon Powershot A710 IS ten months ago, similar in features to this camera but with a 6x optical zoom and a decent grip around the shutter release button, its a Jessops exclusive, but also sold through, currently at £166.80 (free delivery available, or £3.95 for next day, also 2% quidco). Very good camera, with excellent battery life on a pair of 2500mah AAs (around 10 days, taking 500+ photos). At the time there was only the 710 and the IXUS 850 offering image stabilisation in Canon's range, and the IXUS was £300-odd.

And to the people querying why pay £200 for a camera, well, you get what you pay for (mind you, my first digital compact was the perhaps infamous mispriced Kodak DX3700 from New Years 2002, supposed to be £329.99, priced at £100, they took 10,000 orders in the space of 3-4 days, and eventually honoured them to avoid the potential costs of legal action from disgruntled customers :w00t: ). Have a look around at the detailed reviews of various compacts, and pay particular attention to where image quality falls off at higher ISO ratings, or where there are complaints about over-zealous image processing ruining the images by removing noise from them.
RE: "You get what you pay for"

In the compact camera world that tends to be higher a higher MP count that counts for nothing and other rarely used features. As well as paying over the odds for something that's slightly slimmer/lighter/better looking.

You get what you pay for definitely isn't a rule for HDUK! This place is defined by bargains where you should be getting more than you're paying for :-D

A bargain is defined by value/quality for money in relative terms. There's no denying the quality of this camera but paying a price that's double when the end result isn't anywhere near twice as good isn't really what I'd consider a bargain.

Canons "A" range offers some fantastic bargains based on price/quality ratio. The IXUS range are relatively over-priced for what you're getting "extra". In my opinion, of course :)
