The Canon Digital IXUS 210 (also called the Canon Powershot SD3500 IS) joins the small but growing band of cameras that offer a graceful touch-screen interface rather than a cluttered collection of external controls. Almost every aspect of the IXUS 210's operation can be controlled by interacting with the massive and high-res 3.5 inch LCD screen that dominates the rear of the camera. Other standout features include 14 megapixels, a 5x zoom with 24mm wide-angle setting, and 720p HD movie recording. Mark Goldstein gets all touchy-feely with Canon's second touch screen camera in our Canon Digital IXUS 210 review.
