Canon IXUS 850IS Review|
According to Joshua Waller: "Switching between the modes is easy thanks to the mode dial on the back of the camera and once you find all the options the camera becomes fairly easy to use, and it is fairly easy to use the more basic functions of the camera - for example it's easy to switch between the photo, video and playback modes. The Canon way of using the Function menu as the main controls and the Menu button to access setup options can take some time to get used to, especially if you are used to cameras from other brands."
Canon Digital 850 IS camera - Design and Layout
Joshua continues: "The camera is very stylish with a smooth silver body. The camera has a very good high resolution 2.5" screen. The camera feels sturdy and is comfortable to hold. The camera is fairly easy to use, thanks to the mode dial. There is a good layout of buttons and controls, although some of the options may take a little time to get familiar with. The camera speed is good, with a good switch on time, rapid focusing time, quick shutter response, rapid flash recharge time, quick playback mode, quick menus, and excellent continuous shooting (with or without flash!).
Canon Digital IXUS 850 IS compact camera - Metering
"Purple fringing was noticed in one of the shots, but wasn't a problem in the majority of shots. The camera was good at focusing indoors thanks to the focus assist lamp. I did not notice any vignetting, barrel or pincushion distortion; however there was some corner softness in images. There is a very good range of image sizes, aspect ratio, and compression options. Auto white balance, metering, and exposure seemed to be very good." You want to learn more about the Canon IXUS camera? Continue to read the Canon Digital IXUS 850 IS review at DigiCamReview!
