Canon Digital IXUS 750 - Superbly designed camera
The first comment often heard about the Canon Digital IXUS 750 is that it is an exceptionally beautiful camera. We can fully agree with this. The camera's elegant round shapes and smooth look make the Canon IXUS 750 a superbly designed digital camera. Not only is the IXUS 750 beautiful, it is also very solidly built and comfortable to hold. A camera in which the combination of design and comfort are perfectly united, a rather clever concept!
Canon Digital IXUS 750 digital camera
The Canon Digital IXUS 750 is a very pleasant camera to work with. The key behind it, is keeping things simple, even the completely inexperienced user can start working with the camera without difficulty. Most settings are automatically decided by the camera itself. In this range of digital cameras, however, this should not be seen as a disadvantage. Nevertheless, there is enough to adjust via the well-organised menu or Function Button. The test results of the Canon 750 digital camera came out promising; the sharpness is excellent, there is very little purple fringing and the colours are true to nature.
Canon IXUS 750 - ISO and DIGIC II processor
The Digital IXUS 750 also does remarkably well with higher ISO values. This is certainly an advantage. Manufacturers are still experiencing the negative consequences of having more Megapixels on a small surface. The pixel size decreases and the sensitivity has to be boosted, often causing digital noise. That the Canon IXUS 750 experiences less of this when using higher ISO values, is without a doubt an impressive achievement. There is some noise visible, but thanks to the excellent DIGIC II processor it can be kept under control. The lens is also worth mentioning. There is some distortion in wide angle, however, this is much less dominant than with many of its rivals. It is apparent that Canon has a got has impressive experience when it comes to creating optics.
Canon IXUS 750 compact camera for the trendy photographer
The Canon IXUS concept has been very well designed. IXUS products have been available since 1996. This evolution now leads to the Canon Digital IXUS 750 and one wonders how much more can be done. The IXUS 750 has got a nice, large monitor that is easily to operate and gives superb results. On top of all this, the camera is an absolute beauty to look at. It should be obvious that I am very satisfied with the results of the Canon Digital IXUS 750. The camera truly exceeds the expectations. This makes the Canon IXUS 750 suitable for both the trendy photographer and anyone interested in a good, decent compact camera. Recommended!

SanDisk Ultra II Plus Secure Digital memory card
During our tests in practice, I have supplied the Canon IXUS 750 with a new type of memory card, the SanDisk Ultra II Plus SD memory card. It has the format of an SD card, but has an absolutely unique feature: by taking the card out of the camera and literally bending it in half, a USB interface appears. By doing this you can directly insert the card in an available USB port, hereby gaining access to the stored photos or video recordings. This means neither cables nor a card reader are required, even the camera is not needed for this.
