    I want a Digital "Take it everywhere" Camera.

    I'm pointing towards the Canon Ixus II. And is stylish.

    What are the differences between the IIs?

    Also I think the 2x optical zoom is very short...

    The option is the Ixus 430 but is more expensive, a little bigger and heavier.

    What do you think?

    Is the Ixus II a good quality compact camera?


    I've seem the Pentax Optio S and S4 but I prefer the Ixus models.:smoke:

    Hi Falp, you should have a look at the new Ixus 500 aswell, it's a very small, well equipped, sexy little camera, if that makes any sense :rotfl: If you scan around on the web you'll find some pretty good deals aswell.
    Cheers,
    Oddbodd.

    The Ixus 500 is similar to the 430 but more expensive...
    If I stretch my budget it will be the 430 model...

    I have a Power Shot S230 Digital Elph (bought in US, which is the Digital Ixus V3) now over 18 months old

    I'm not sure how it compares with the models you are looking at but it is a brilliant camera.

    Not what you asked for but I hope you find it useful.

    I have the IXUS 400 which, from what I understand, is the 430 without the direct print/share button. It's under £200 now.

    Yes just bought the Ixus 400 at £199 .

    It seemed to get better reviews than the 430/500

    I've also just bought an ixus400 for £199. Ordered it online Thursday night and got it this morning. Got it from www.digitaldepot.co.uk. Bargain!

    Sorry, just checked the site and they've run out but I'm sure if you shop around you'll find a similar deal.
