Reasons For

4 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.

One hundred and ten more battery life (CIPA standard) Edit
The Canon IXUS 177 takes 300.00 battery life (CIPA standard), however the Canon Ixus 180 only takes 190.00 battery life (CIPA standard). Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

£20 cheaper
The Canon IXUS 177 is £20.01 cheaper than the Canon Ixus 180.
More popular

5 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 (35mm film equiv) Edit
Canon Ixus 180 is 240mm maximum focal length, but the Canon IXUS 177 is only a 224mm maximum focal length digital camera (16mm shorter).

GPS (satellite) Edit

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.
