8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The IXUS 30 does not have an image stabiliser, unlike most of the other new comparable spec digital cameras which have an image stabiliser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most compact camera digital cameras that have been available for the last year do not support WiFi connectivity. The Canon IXUS 30 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The IXUS 30 does not support Full HD video, although keep in mind that most of the other latest digital cameras also do not support Full HD video.

We think you might also be interested in other digital cameras which also support Full HD video including the Canon SX610 HS[plb_3300906_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a GPS

The IXUS 30 does not have a GPS, although keep in mind that most of the other cameras that came out around the same time as the IXUS 30 also do not have a GPS.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras with a GPS and we think the IXUS 180[pl_3191140_price], the IXUS 285 HS[pl_3191157_price], or the PowerShot SX540 HS[pl_3191137_price] all from Canon which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not Waterproof

The IXUS 30 is not waterproof, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec cameras that are a comparable age to the IXUS 30 are also not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other new digital cameras, the Canon IXUS 30 is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a camera that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the Samsung MV800[plb_3153818_price] which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Video Recording

Most recently released compact camera digital cameras do not support video recording. The IXUS 30 is no exception to this as it too does not support video recording.

We compared all the other cameras which also support video recording to this digital camera and we think the Samsung MV800[plb_3153818_price], or the Nikon Coolpix S6900[plb_2513006_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Built-In Flash

The IXUS 30 does not have a built-in flash. Most of the other latest cameras also do not have a built-in flash.

Other cameras which also have a built-in flash that you might want to look at include the Samsung MV800[plb_3153818_price], or the Nikon Coolpix S6900[plb_2513006_price].
