DP Review references[edit]

My references in the list are all from dpreview.com - not because it's especially better than any other third-party reference, but because they're the refs I had to hand and actually used :-) If others appear to contradict, feel free to add them, noting what Canon themselves say - David Gerard 21:06, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

Sample gallery[edit]

I removed the sample gallery. It is subjective and unencyclopedic. Perhaps a link to the flickr camera finder can be added to this page, for those who want to find images taken by this camera, but wikipedia is not a picture gallery. Gh5046 (talk) 08:23, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Known problems section[edit]

Obviously this section is going to have to be well referenced. The Ixus 400 problem needs a Canon link. The problem I can't find a really good reference for is the fragile screen on the Ixus 50, which some people have successfully gotten replaced under warranty but which Canon has not officially acknowledged. Then there's the E18 error ... - David Gerard 07:07, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

Image metadata[edit]

Does anyone know how to go about fixing the links in an image's metadata? If you look at the metadata for pictures taken by a Canon camera, the link points to Canon, not Canon. Just curious if anybody knows the right person to contact. Thanks. ♫ Bitch and Complain Sooner ♫ 05:43, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

Probably not fixable - the link comes straight from the Exif data in the image; the MediaWiki software automatically makes this into a link. At least Canon Inc. is fairly high up in Canon :-) - David Gerard 19:51, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Formatting grids[edit]

I agree. I don't like the new formatting; it is too wide for my screen. Boardhead (talk) 17:27, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

The grid fits in 1280 horizontal screen res with Wiki's menu scrolled off screen. Suggest an alternative structure, or columns to be removed. I suggest removing the photos of the cameras. Product images are unusual in comparison grids.115.128.5.161 (talk) 07:26, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

.THM Files[edit]

I have some video from 2005-06 that comes up with .THM suffix. None of my players recognize this file type. What have I done? Can I fix it?62.215.228.3 (talk) 19:49, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

.THM is file for a thumbnail of this video - it's very first frame seen as a picture. If ypu will rename this extension fron .thm to .jpg then you can see this file like an ordinary picture. --Ds02006 (talk) 06:39, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Name change[edit]

Starting with 3 Fedruary-2010 models Canon has changed the japanese and global names of the line. The word "digital" was removed (as well as the IS suffix). It may be worth adding new section to the table and adding a few words to the article. Schmalter81.18.115.153 (talk) 18:15, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

"Digital zoom" column[edit]

Is there any use of it? Shouldn't it be removed? Schmalter81.18.115.153 (talk) 18:20, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

IXUS camera on-board software[edit]

I see no mention of the very useful feature by which video shots can be trimmed start and finish within the camera. Also, this camera allows one to zoom in/out while videoing, something other cameras don't have. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.184.72.33 (talk) 11:32, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

125HS and 500HS[edit]

I can't find any information about Canon cameras with those characteristics presented on Jan 9, 2012. Could the editor provide the prooflink for those cameras? Nomad (talk) 21:33, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

USB Video[edit]

Do you know if Canon Digital IXUS support capturing real-time video over USB to be used as a webcam? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.137.139.206 (talk) 18:12, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Ixus 100 IS[edit]

I've got an Ixus 100 IS right next to me on which is printed that it has an 12.1 megapixel sensor where the article tells me it has got a 14.1 megapixel sensor. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.95.133.244 (talk) 19:34, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

I'm creating a merger proposal section because there was not one created when the merger was proposed in 2013. For the record, I support a merger. Libertybison (talk) 18:15, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Merged SD1100, it had less information than the table here has. 400/430 I think have some actual info to merge - David Gerard (talk) 23:53, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Suggest adding column to model listing grids which notes if camera has optical viewfinder.[edit]

Please excuse if this seems trite or not within typical Wikipedia remarks. I am relatively new to Wikipedia editing, and not fully sure what I am doing.

In my experience, whether a digital camera has an optical viewfinder or not is a huge issue.

1. When an optical viewfinder is used primarily, and the LCD is kept off, except for seeing an image of the last shot, the battery lasts far longer. A camera which might require a daily recharge of the battery might last 2-4 weeks.

2. It is very difficult to see the LCD in bright sunlight. This is especially true of the smaller digital cameras, as they have small batteries (to help make them small and light), and making an LCD bright takes a lot of power. An optical viewfinder allows one to take pictures more easily when the sun is bright.

3. This topic could get complicated, as the Canon Digital IXUS models with optical viewfinders do have framing issues when using the optical viewfinder. My suggestion is to not address the quality of the optical viewfinder image. Small digital cameras are a compromise almost by definition. The real issue is whether there is an optical viewfinder, or not. (Or any viewfinder. But I don't know of any cameras in this size range which have an LCD viewfinder, as some larger cameras do.)

4. Canon went from having optical viewfinders on all of its smaller cameras initially, to having them on NONE of them. This transition should be noted. There was a period when some models had optical viewfinders, and some did not. Today I don't think Canon sells any pocket-sized digital camera which has an optical viewfinder.

I do not have the detail at hand to make the relevant edits on my own, but I assume that whoever put the tables together has such info available.

Thanks.
