This is a hot camera with great specs.

I have its predecessor the 910. If it wasn't faithful I'd be tempted to upgrade at this price - IMO it is a HOT deal...

Got this when it was £129.99 within the last few days - is the Amazon Price Promise still going? Think it's expired, but any help would be greatly appreciated! Does this one come with the free case, which if not may soften the blow! :thumbsup:

I love the Ixus range but ]this review isn't too complementary

Amazon Price Promise finished a few months ago I'm afraid, but you still got a bargain

These have a decent sized sensor for a compact, at 1/1.7"

Still not remotely big enough to justify 12 megapixels though. Even dslr sensors struggle when they squeeze that many in, and they're 3.5x bigger.

It is £239.99 on Jessops. Does anyone know if they still do the 110% price match? Potentially £108 if they do?

the 10mpx is better

this is a great camera and very good value!!!
i paid £200 for an import earlier this year when they were much much more in our shops so thatssome saving. if you want a new camera you carnt really go wrong with this one

This was £150 a few weeks ago and I was tempted then, it's since fallen to £130 and now £120. Anyone any idea why it's dropping so fast?

if you look at the sensor density it's not that different from other canon cameras, you've got to see the images this produces, very clear, quality images

These are fantastic cameras. I have the 850, unfortunately it's still going strong.

...maybe I can pass it on as an Xmas present and treat myself

Does anyone know why this is so cheap - is it due to be replaced?

no doubt something new and better just been released, just be thankfull you didnt pay £200 like me :oops:

i got the 970, get blown away everytime i use it, dont know about 960 but cant be bad for price!!!

jakenjo;3567615

I bet they could make a 6megapixel that produced better quality. Wouldn't sell, of course.

anyone know how this compares to the IXUS 80, also £120 on Amazon.

Does the metal casing scrath easily on this? I have an old Canon Ixus that's 3 years old and the metal scuffed easily and you could see black marks around it.

isn't this a very old camera????

A very old 12mp camera? How do you figure that one?

Anyone interested in this camera would do well to check it out at [url]www.trustedreviews.com[/url] This is not a warning, quite the opposite.

these cameras are great, very good price too

I wouldn't trust photographyblog for a second. Almost all their camera reviews are 4/5 stars. It's a commercial haven.

trustedreviews.com/dig…/p1

as someone mentioned is a much better review

p.s. voted hot... GREAT price!

I bought this camera for £230 early this year when it was the latest camera in the IXUS series. Very shortly after, the 10.0MP IXUS 970 IS came out. And now there is a newer model, the IXUS 980 IS which is a 14.7MP camera.

The IXUS 960 IS is an excellent camera and doesn't scratch easily. Mine still looks new anyway. The touch control dial is a nice feature but isn't really all that useful.

Why should you get this camera? Because it's a Canon, it's highly specced, and it's cheap for £120.

Many thanks for that. I tried it and Amazon just sent me an email saying they'll refund the £10 difference - Cashback!! :thumbsup:

Is the error on random cameras, or specific models?

The 960 has a much higher spec. Use the compare option on the Canon UK website to see the differences.

Looks like there is the option of a ]free official Canon sock case or ]Lowepro Ridge 20 Digital Camera Pouch as well from the promotions section.

Thank you so very much! I bought this on Sunday when it was £129.99 and managed to get a £10 refund because Amazon said it was "significant". :-D

You can get both of them with the camera, I just put both in, with the camera & it came to £119.99 :w00t:

~What about this … ~What about this one??http://www.comet.co.uk/shopcomet/product/497010/FUJIFILM-FINEPIX-J120S#




Fuji aren't even in the same league as canon. for the price this canon is a bargain i had it and loved it until i took it to the foo fighter at wembley and it got soaked. i replaced it with the Lumix tz5

I can't seem to get either cases free now?

The discount is only applied at the final page of the checkout process.

Plus an extra 2.13% VAT discount with code LOWERVAT :thumbsup:

Excellant, thank you. Just ordered the camera, canon sock and case all for £116.85

Used the lowervat code and my £2.50 voucher from here that I kept forgetting to use :thumbsup:

Now wheres the cheapest place to buy a SD card?

Reliability issues with this and other recent Ixus cameras put me off. Great price, but I think the reason is the fairly high failure rate.

Gets a great review here:

trustedreviews.com/dig…/p1

And that was when it was £240 !!.

£119 has got to be the bargain of the year.
