18 Reasons For

Canon Has Good Reviews for Its Digital Cameras

We calculated the average reviews for all Canon cameras and also specifically for Canon compact camera digital cameras and found that in both cases Canon had good reviews.

Fairly Large Screen Size

The Canon IXUS 115 HS has a quite large screen size (3 inches) compared to most of the other compact camera digital cameras that are a comparable age to the IXUS 115 HS. Cameras that have been around for a comparable time to the IXUS 115 HS have screen sizes of between 1" and 4.8", and the average screen size is 2.8".

There are a number of alternative 3" screen cameras currently available which you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the PowerShot S110 (£530.99), or the IXUS 125 HS both from Canon.

If this camera screen size is not large enough for you then you might also want to consider the Nikon Coolpix P520 (3.2"), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX77 (3.5") which also has a higher rating.

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an MMC|MMC+|SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is the most frequently supported memory card on comparable spec digital cameras that have been on the market for more than two years. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

If the memory card type of this Canon digital camera is too bad for you then you might want to consider the Lumix DMC-TZ35 (SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Lumix DMC-TZ60 (£244.99) (SD|SDHC|SDXC) both from Panasonic or the Fujifilm FinePix X10 (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.

Comments on it being loud is very subjective. I would say it is not that loud, and it is comparable in noise to my Dyson DC14 vac. The hole someone commented on is on one of the smaller reducers.... Read more…

This Joe, Blows as others have said. Seems very well built. Long sturdy cord that does not need ground pin. Filter easy to remove and clean. Long warranty
Well, what can I say This duster has been perfect, it reduces the amount of dust on any surface to the point where it looks brand new. I am really impressed at how clean the inside of my computers are
I owned a 1 gallon compressor and it was nice but I always had to wait and let it charge 3 times before I can finish a computer. I got rid of it and bought this. MUCH Better. It's light, powerful, and
Filter clogs quickly in dusty conditions
It can get warm quite fast, it's absolutely not a problem though Just give it a small cool down delay and clean out the bottom filter while you wait and you'll be good to go
NONE AT ALL SERIOUSLY. IT IS WELL BUILT IN THE U. S. A. WE NEED MORE MANUFACTURING PRODUCTS LIKE THIS TO SAVE OUR NATION
