  • Canon has been producing sleek and stylish IXUS cameras for some time now, and the IXUS 275 HS is no different.
    If you’re looking for something to slip into your trouser pocket or bag, perhaps while you’re on holiday or during a party or night out, then the IXUS 275 HS is a fuss-free camera which delivers some nice results.
    While there’s nothing hugely exciting about this model, it’s got a good range of features - although some of those, we’re starting to expect from every modern camera (such as inbuilt Wi-Fi).


  • The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is an attractive compact camera with an 18x zoom lens, but image quality takes a step back from last year's edition.


  • The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is a well-designed camera that’s easy to use thanks to its chunky, ergonomic build, and an intuitive menu design. You can also be sure it’ll snap accurately focussed and well exposed shots.
    Performance and image quality are also good, though not outstanding. The switch to a 20.2-megaixel sensor sounds great on paper, but in reality the camera can only resolve marginally more detail than the 16MP SX600 HS.

    The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is the latest basic point-n-shoot model from Canon, but there just isn't much in this camera that will make you take notice of it. The SX610 offers 20.2-megapixels of resolution, but its image quality simply isn't where it should be for a camera with that much resolution and an MSRP of $249. Even under nearly perfect lighting conditions, the PowerShot SX610's image quality isn't good enough to make mid-to-large-sized prints. This model has no manual control features.


  • The Canon PowerShot SX600 HS is a slim camera with an 18x zoom lens and Wi-Fi, but its images are on the noisy side.


  • There’s a lot to like about Canon’s latest midrange travel-zoom compact. The Canon PowerShot SX600 HS is a doddle to operate thanks to simple menus and sensible controls, plus autofocusing, exposure metering and auto white balance all perform admirably.
    The camera’s extra features are a bit of a mixed bag though.


  • If you're looking for a reliable camera with a decent zoom range and that is capable of producing good quality images – without too much input from you – the SX600HS is a good option.


  • The Canon IXUS 265 HS is a small, slim camera with a versatile zoom that's easy to use and stylish enough to impress your friends, with some unique creative features such as the Hybrid Auto and Creative Shot modes to keep you entertained. The built-in wi-fi also ensures that the Canon IXUS 265 HS will appeal to the smartphone user, although sadly there's no touchscreen interface on this model.

    This little ELPH delivers a lot of power and convenience, with as 12X zoom and NFC Wi-Fi on board. Creative Shot mode delivers artsy results, and image quality is high overall. If you don't need an extremely fast lens or a quick full-resolution burst mode, this slim point-and-shoot is worth a good look.


  • Cameras like the 340 are a reason why smartphones are winning the compact point-and-shoot war. Despite the 340 having an optical zoom lens and other easy-to-use features, most new smartphones are just as good in terms of functionality and image quality, if not better in many cases. We are shocked and disappointed that image quality seems to have been downgraded, no thanks to lesser specs. Throwing in Wi-Fi and NFC really doesn’t solve the convenience factor that smartphones offer. If there were an argument for not carrying two devices, it would be this.


  • One of the best cameras you can buy for less than $250, the svelte, 10x-zoom Canon PowerShot Elph 330 HS takes beautiful pictures and lets you send them instantaneously with integrated Wi-Fi.


  • The IXUS 255 HS / ELPH 330 HS is positioned in the middle in the IXUS / ELPH range and provides a good balance between features and performance on the one hand and price on the other. It outclasses the 16.1 Megapixel CCD sensor-based entry-level IXUS / ELPH models in every way, sporting better image quality and noise performance, a wider range of shooting modes, Full HD video, a longer zoom and a better quality screen.

    In terms of progress, it's also a better model than the 2012 IXUS 230 HS / ELPH 310 HS that it replaces.


  • The Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS is a little camera that will provide quite a few pleasant surprises. Those expecting the most basic type of point and shoot model will appreciate a camera that performs faster than other beginner-level cameras, while also providing greater image quality.
