Canon Digital IXUS 55

 

If you still own the IXUS 50, it's probably time to upgrade to this newer model. Read our full review on it.

Ultracompact design ; Long battery life ; Excellent burst capabilities ; Low shutter lag ; Versatile movie mode

Few manual controls or scene modes ; Image quality is far from stellar

Excellent video specs ; Anti-shake capabilities ; Useful selection of scene modes

Nothing special

Great little, camera! stick it in yor pocket & take it any where!

Huge screen, high quality video function, compact size

Don't get caught without a spare battery. A car charger is a good idea
