The lens has optical image stabilization, as well, allowing for slightly s..." - Feb 27 2012 More »|

|ePhotoZine: "The IXUS 230 HS takes well exposed images with good detail throughout whether shooting with the lens at its widest and at its longest although it can be prone to some purple fringing in bright conditions. The camera takes superb macro images with a minimum focus distance of just 1cm. There is barely any noise visible at ISO 100 and when you go through the ISO range you can see noise becoming more prominent at each l..." - Oct 17 2011 More »|

- May 13 2013 Not my favorite., B. Chaponot "Chap8464"
I used to like point and shoots. This was my last. I spent good money ($350) for this camera and wasn't overly impressed. The 14x zoom was one of the biggest selling points for me. But the ease of use for manual operations wasn't very good and not matter what I did in manual operations it seemed to make the shot worse. I never felt in control of this camera and the manua...

This canon is as good as any and better than most. The sharpness is extremely good at all focal lenghts. However the image stabilization struggles a bit and you may have to hold the camera for a while while it locks on. Once it does the image will be sharp and crisp. The auto mode is a bit soft in both contrast and sharpness. Both issues can be addressed in the my colors...
- Apr 28 2013 Camera has problems with lens cover, Charles Coon "History Teacher"
First, the battery dies very quickly, especially if you leave the GPS on (and to be fair, the instructions do tell you to turn it off - but even if you turn the camera off, apparently the GPS stays on)). But most importantly, the lens cover will not close or open completely unless it's manipulated. If you forget to open completely with your fingers, you end up with par...

I just received it and haven't started using it yet. The camera is great but a little larger in size than my previous canons. Wish it were a bit smaller to fit in my small purse when traveling. However, it takes excellent pictures. The EArden lip fix does keep my upper lip moist and prevents the lipstick from running. Wish it did miracles like make my lines disappear h...
