Reasons For

Canon IXUS 170 Canon Ixus 180
7 Reasons For
17% Bigger Optical Zoom
The Canon IXUS 170 has an optical zoom of 12x, however the Canon Ixus 180 is only a 10x optical zoom digital camera (2x smaller).

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.

0.1 Larger Maximum Aperture Number
The Canon IXUS 170 has a maximum aperture number of 7, however the Canon Ixus 180 is only a 6.9 maximum aperture digital camera (0.1 smaller).

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the camera lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camera's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a larger aperture number translates to a smaller hole, therefore a smaller amount of light will be let through.

A larger aperture number means that the camera's lens will be able to close to a very small hole, letting in very little light. This can be used for very tight depths of field shots, allowing on a single part of the photo to be in full focus, leading to some very nice artistic shots.

60mm Longer Maximum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
The Canon IXUS 170 is a 300mm maximum focal length digital camera. That's 60mm longer than the Canon Ixus 180 (240mm).

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the camera lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore greater focal lengths mean that the camera has the ability to zoom in closer to a subject.

A longer maximum focal length means that the camera is capable of zooming in a much greater distance, allowing you to clearly photograph subjects further away.

Read more Read less | Edit
Three Aspherical Lenses
The Canon IXUS 170 is a three aspherical lens digital camera, whereas the Canon Ixus 180 only has one aspherical lens.

An aspherical lens is a special type of lens for high end digital cameras. While most lenses are constructed as part of a perfect sphere (i.e - they have an even curve across all parts of the surface), aspherical lenses are not created as perfect spheres.

Aspherical lenses are used to counter and correct the occasional aberrations that occasionally appear when using wide apertures. leading to a sharper image. However they are very much a high-end professional extra for a digital camera - they cost substantially more to produce, so are only found in the best cameras.

10 More Battery Life
The Canon IXUS 170 is a digital camera that takes 200 battery life, whereas the Canon Ixus 180 only takes 190 battery life.

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.

Better Dkamera.de Review Score

5 Reasons For
Smaller Minimum Aperture Number
Canon Ixus 180 is 3 minimum aperture, but the Canon IXUS 170 is a 3.6 minimum aperture digital camera (0.6 larger).

In photography, the aperture number refers to the size of the hole in the front of the camera lens, through which light is let through. The larger the aperture, the more light can pass through into the camera's sensor. Photographers can modify this aperture to control the 'depth of field' for their shot - this is how much of the shot is held in focus, and how much is blurred. Aperture numbers are measured in f/stops: rather confusingly a smaller aperture number translates to a larger hole, therefore a larger amount of light will be let through.

A smaller aperture number means that the camera's lens will be able to open wider, letting in more light at once. This is helpful because it allows the camera to quickly take in enough light to form a picture, meaning that the shutter speed will be faster, reducing blur from fast moving subjects. It also means that you can take photos in dimmer light without having to rely on the flash, since you will be able to take in more light at once.

Read more Read less | Edit
5% Shorter Minimum Focal Length (35mm Film Equiv)
Canon Ixus 180 is 24mm minimum focal length. That's 1mm shorter than the Canon IXUS 170 (25mm).

'Focal length' is described as the distance between the camera lens and the image sensor - this distance is what determined how 'zoomed in' a shot is when compared to the original view from your eye. Therefore smaller focal lengths mean that the camera has the ability to zoom out further to take in more of the scene at once.

A smaller minimum focal length means that the camera can take in more of the scene at once, allowing for wide landscape shots.

Read more Read less | Edit
GPS (satellite)
The Canon Ixus 180 has a GPS (satellite), however the Canon IXUS 170 does not.

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Slightly Lighter
The Canon Ixus 180 has a weight of 138g, whereas the Canon IXUS 170 is a 141g digital camera (3g heavier).

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.
