thinking about getting this at the moment...

I had this camera and while the size is a great benefit i found the pic quality quite poor with photos quite often looking blurred.

The build quaility of this is also pretty bad - after a few days of having it i dropped it from a height of 2-3ft onto long grass. This resulted in the zoom lens breaking. I couldn't believe that it could break so easily landing on something so soft - With my old canon i've dropped it 100's of times on much harder surface without issues.

I've since replaced it with a panasonic tz8 and while it cost more and it's not as portable it take great pictures and the build quality seems much better.

I had the model up ST70 pics were terrible, i personally wouldn't go for this, sent mine back

Same price at Amazon BTW

thanks for the fb. the price looked to be the best for the model. not sure about amazon but delivery is free from sainsburys too.

i have heard the same about the pic quality but saw it irl today and it had that x/iphone factor, sort of reminded me of a nokia 8210 because of its 'dinkyness'.

any recommendations for what might be better for the money +/- 50%? would like something really small as i smoke and as such never really have any pocket space. MP not that important really but i do like my optical zoom and stabilisation is good.

as richard said, the panasonics are nice (leica) but i don't want to spend loads on it as i'll probably only use it a handful of times.

Look on Ebay loads of refurbished Ixus 120 for around £65, search for the Canon outlet with 1 year warranty , they are as good as new

Go to Item number: 290538227733 then search there other items for sale

thanks, looked at panasonics on ebay ages ago but have become aware of fakes since i started on ebay and steered-clear since then. checked out the link though and about £60 would be good. i'll trust canon the blue is nicer also. back to ebay tracking...

thanks for your input deanos.
