    Canon IXUS 100 camera, any good?

    Just saw the offer on the Comet ad showing today and they are doing the Canon IXUS 100 for 129 over the bank holiday weekend, which is a pretty dammed good saving from book price. All I need to know is, are they any good (I could read online reviews etc, but I'd rather get the info here from those who actually know about such things)?

    While I cant comment on the Ixus 100 directly, I have owned a couple of previous model IXUS cameras and they have been consistently very good for a compact digital. The only reason my most recent camera isn't one of them is that I wanted something a little bit beefier and went for a PowerShot instead.

    I can also vouch for IXUS cameras, my better half has one, not the 100 series but as a range they seem to be pretty good at the job they were designed for, sturdy too, hers has been dropped a few times and seems to be holding up well.

    Brought one (I think its that model) for a youth theatre recently. Paid significantly more than that though. Nice Camera, good video etc. Was a bit disapointed with the low light focus, but then I am comparing with a SLR.

    Certainly the IXUS range seems really good, and for a point and shoot camera well worth looking at.

    Thanks all. I already have a Powershot G10, but it's not very good for sticking in your pocket for days out etc. I may invest this weekend.

    We've got an IXUS 200 IS and it's really good!

    Echo previous posters - had my Ixus 55 for *years* - the batteries are all starting to fade now (some were el cheapo 3p ones), and the camera is looking old and scuffed, but the camera served me well, and I will not be looking at non-canon again. Might have one of these, especially as it has IS.

    Edit: Hmm it even takes the same nb4l batteries as the old 55... could re-use 2 of the better ones...
