Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS Review


The Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS is an 8 megapixel digital camera with a 2.5 inch LCD screen and an optical viewfinder (now an increasingly rare feature on compact cameras). The IXUS 950 IS ...

Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS digital camera


The Canon IXUS 950 IS updates the almost identical IXUS 850 IS with another million pixels and a new 4x optical zoom lens. Other key features include optical image stabilisation, a very clear, bright and easy to see 2.5-inch colour screen plus 18-scene...

Build and design, image stabilisation, low ISO image quality

Lacks manual controls even in manual mode, image noise above ISO 800, lens softness at edges and not wide enough field of view, scene modes smooth away detail, AiAF accuracy

On the final analyses, the 950 IS looks expensive at £329, though, as always, try shopping around and you’ll find it for much less. It also has a few too many foibles for me to be able to heartily recommend it. The less-wide lens is problematic and the...

Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS Camera Review


The curved styling of the Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS sets this camera apart. A three-tone metallic finish tops off a refined design that encases advanced technologies and powerful performance.

The Digital IXUS 950 IS has a useful Shortcut button that enables swift, one-touch access to your favourite options and shooting modes, allowing you to customise the camera to your needs.

Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS


Got this camera because of the good reviews I read, I found it to be very good for general photos with reasonabley clear images for holiday shots and every day use.

I found it to be very good for general photos with clear sharp images, close up photos of small objects...very good, Video exellent quality

Can't handle Long distance and Landscape photos, foliage on trees become fuzzy, pictures need to be adjusted on a PC afterwards ; For it's price I was expecting much more proffesional looking photos
