Canon IXUS 115 HS review

Metal bodied style with low-light performance

Canon IXUS 115 HS: Verdict

The IXUS 115HS is a fine example of a why the IXUS line has proved to be such a smash all these years, and with the High Sensitivity sensor Canon seems determined to prove that the camera is as much about its images as it is its sleek design.

Its diminutive body and the high-sensitivity capabilities makes the IXUS a fine contender for a camera to take on a night out, but getting the balance right between style and operation is tricky, and the streamlined body is sadly only friendly for the nimble fingered. It's a real shame, as otherwise its small size, large LCD screen and reasonably high standard of image quality make for a winning combination – particularly in this price bracket.
