Canon Digital Ixus 750
(Canon PowerShot SD550 in the USA)
Review Date: November 21st 2005
The Canon Digital Ixus 750 is a 7 megapixel digital camera with a 3x optical zoom lens and 2.5 inch LCD screen. It replaces the slightly older Digital Ixus 700 in the Canon line-up. New for the Ixus 750 is what Canon's marketing department have dubbed the "Perpetual Curve design", which basically means that one end of the all-metal camera body is rounded. Under the surface, the Canon Digital Ixus 750 uses the same advanced DIGIC II processor for fast performance and image processing as the company's digital SLR cameras. There are 9 different scene modes on offer for beginners and a more advanced Manual mode for those who desire greater control. VGA movies at 30fps, a My Colors mode that allows special in-camera colour effects, and PictBridge and USB 2 support complete the specification. The Digital Ixus 750 is Canon's most advanced and most expensive ultra-compact point and shoot camera. Does it have what it takes to find its way into your pocket? Read my extensive review to find out.
