Canon Ixus 105

Canon Ixus 105

Sporting the traditional Ixus design, this camera certainly looks the part. There’s a 4x zoom (28-112mm), plus a few useful features, like Face SelfTimer, but little else. A CIPA battery rating of 240 isn’t bad, but I've seen better, and video is only in 0.3Mp (VGA) resolution. Handling is simple: a three-way slider makes it quick and easy to switch between auto, program AE/scene and movie modes. No surprises that the 12Mp Ixus 105 delivers a good performance when it comes to colour, sharpness and exposure, and it had one the best macro performances out of the group.
