Canon IXUS 300 HS - A Cut Above
By Alvin Soon - 13 Jul 2010
Launch SRP: S$599

Introduction

Introduction

The Canon IXUS 300 HS is no ordinary compact camera. The first hint is its amazing design, with cut lines more reminiscent of a Lamborghini super car than an average point and shoot camera. The second is its fast F2 lens - the only other Canon compact camera to have it is the more expensive PowerShot S90. The last hint is the new HS moniker tagged after the IXUS 300 name. Canon calls HS their 'revolutionary' system, which combines a back-lit CMOS sensor with their DIGIC processing engine to produce images with lower noise levels.

Revolutions aside, we found good reasons to love the IXUS 300 HS (with some caveats). Hit the jump for more performance details in this review.
