Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital ELPH (IXUS 950 IS) Concise Review

 

The SD850 IS (IXUS 950 IS in Europe) was first announced in May 2007 as a replacement for the Powershot SD700 IS. It constitutes only a relatively subtle upgrade. Visually the SD850 is virtually indistinguishable from the older model (only the color of...

Good resolution, excellent edge-to-edge sharpness Useful zoom range (although no 28mm wide angle) Very clean results at lower ISO settings Fast and accurate focus (although slightly slower in low light) Very responsive Excellent user interface and...

Battery life when using LCD not brilliant Slightly underpowered built-in flash No 'A' or 'S' modes, generally little manual control Auto White Balance performance under artificial light not brilliant The usual problems of noise and noise reduction...

The SD850 IS is a typical example of what Canon does so well; a beautifully constructed, well designed and capable compact camera that doesn't break any new ground but does what it does with the refinement that comes from years of fine tuning and a...

Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS

 

It's lovely, it's expensive, it's a Canon.

The Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS is an expensive luxury camera, but there's no doubt that the money buys solid build quality, brilliant performance and superior picture quality too. There are many other cameras that can beat its specification and features...

Canon Ixus 950 IS review

 

What do you get for the camera that has everything?

Strong features spec ; Delivers good-quality images ; Very well built

Difficult to use at times ; Zoom range could be greater ; Quite pricey

It's fast and has a great screen, but only an average 4x lens and some interface quirks. Perfect for well-heeled beginners

Canon Digital IXUS 950 IS

 

Despite its limitations – the problems with shadows, AF, the noise issues and that new lens – this is an accomplished but flawed step on the IXUS' evolutionary ladder. The camera may not have evolved wings or a way to make a cup of tea in the morning,...

Image stabilisation, build, image quality

No manual control in “manual” mode, noise above ISO 800, lens’ wide end not wide enough, clunky mode dial, shadows fill-in, detail smoothing in some scene modes, plus AiAF not accurate enough

A style conscious compact

This stylish compact is great for those who want to just point and shoot, but equally good for those who want more control
