Canon Digital IXUS 850 IS

 

The Canon Digital IXUS 850 IS puts an optically stabilised, wide-angle lens into a pocketable package.

Good focal range for lens ; Quick performance ; Optical image stabilisation ; Attractive design

Few manual controls ; Extremely noisy photos at ISO 1600

In addition to the flexible lens, the IXUS 850 IS has some handy snapshot features. The camera's sensor can be boosted to as high as ISO 1,600 for low-light or high-movement shots, though you'll want to keep it at ISO 800 or lower because of image...

Dear Pekka Siiskonen - I had the same problem with the shooting date. I solved it by updating the software to the latest versions from canon. I also own a EOS digital rebel and didn't install the newer zoombrowser version. The update fixed it.

Great camera, nice pictures

Little pricey

Canon Digital IXUS 850 IS

 

My IXUS 800IS went for a swim and stopped working so I bought the IXUS 850IS because I was basically happy with the previous model

Wide angle Lens

Missing battery indicator / Cheap flimsy lid to the battery-SD-Card compartment (800IS version is much better) / Timezone does not include Brisbane / Flash slow synchro mode has been relegated to the menu

Canon Digital IXUS 850 IS

 

this is one superb camera but sadly mine was sent for repairment once because the lense got stuck and i was told that the flash thingy was starting to rust so i asked them to change it altogether as well. costs my few hundreds bucks. bugger.

amazing image quality ; wide angle lense ; easy to use ; enough manual functions

NO BATTERY INDICATOR ; i have no idea when to charhe prior any shooting since the low battery sign will only start to blink when the battery is REALLY LOW

This is a perfect point and shoot camera. I haven't taken a fuzzy shot in the 4 weeks I've had it.

16:9 photo option ; Excellent battery life

No 16:9 video option
