Reasons For

7 Reasons For
Significantly bigger digital zoom Edit
The Canon IXUS 177 has a digital zoom of 16x, whereas the Canon IXUS 180 is only a 4x digital zoom digital camera (12x smaller). Read more

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

10% lighter Edit
The Canon IXUS 177 is a 126g digital camera. That's 12g lighter than the Canon IXUS 180 (138g). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

A little shorter Edit
The Canon IXUS 177 has a height of 54.3mm, however the Canon IXUS 180 is a 56.8mm tall digital camera (2.5mm taller).
Marginally thinner Edit

4 Reasons For
2x bigger optical zoom Edit
The Canon IXUS 180 is a 10x optical zoom digital camera. That's 2x bigger than the Canon IXUS 177 (10x). Read more

The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

Moderately longer maximum focal length Edit
The Canon IXUS 180 has a maximum focal length of 240mm, but the Canon IXUS 177 is only a 224mm maximum focal length digital camera (16mm shorter).
17% shorter minimum focal length Edit
