A perfect Budget Point n shoot camera
by Saurabh Aggarwal on 2014-03-19
At this cost, this is a perfect camera that u can find which also has CMOS sensor. Dont go for megapixl as it will not matter. Image quality of this camera is superior than many 18 megapixal cameras. I recommend this camera under this budget.

A nice camera in 8-10K range with CMOS sensor. Overall satisfied with the product. I purchased it for my parents, and it is very user friendly.
Right DigiCam within 10k
by Apu Biswas on 2014-03-04
Canon IXUS 255HS is a right camera for those people who looks a good digicam within 10K along with HD video recording and crystal clear image quality.
by Rahul on 2014-03-02
1) Full hd video capture.
2) Good image stabilisation.
3) Wifi connectivity.
4) hybrid mode during image capture(makes a short movie of all the pictures that you have snapped by capturing 2-3 secs of video during each click and putting them together).
1) camera shows recharge notification even when the battery is fully charged.
2) Hybrid mode fills up the sd card very fast.

The quality of the images is very good, however there are problems with the battery. Sometimes in spite of charging the battery fully, there is an error message "Charge the battery"
Awesome Camera for given price
by Nehal Rupani on 2014-03-17
1) High Resolution Pics (Can be used as wall frame photo)
2) Full HD Videos (You can fool to be professional photographer to someone with clarity)
3) 10x Optical Zoom in Photo and Video mode (Later one is damn smooth)
4) 4X digital zoom (Now, I tried my hand with this one. I must say upto 25x you can focus it well but here after it shakes a lot but i tried to capture lightboard which is sort of 1 km away from my home and still I can read clear letters in night)
5) Digic 5 processor
1) It's bit of lengthy to delete photo.
2) I don't know whether there is manual flash settings. Sometimes i guess it used to auto detect to use flash or not base on light condition
3) Hard to get settings for IS filter sometimes
4) Full HD videos eat huge space in cards. Use 32GB is mandatory.

I am a user of a DSLR camera and when I ordered his one out of the fun of it, I realized the brilliance of this camera. The wide range you get, is really good and the intel that this camera brings out is also very impressive. For those who are looking for a HQ, above mid-range camera..this is your pick!

I am providing 4 stars, since the product is worth 5, but the delay in getting it delivered takes away 1 star.
I ordered the Camera on 16th April, but it was not dispatched till 22nd April. On sending a message to seller via Amazon, I was contacted back that the Camera had gone out of stock in warehouse and that it took longer than expected for additional lot to come in, owing to company having stopped manufacturing this model now. However, the person who called was polite and did confirm that they had got the camera, and would be shipping it on 23rd April. It got shipped and arrived around 26th April. Now on the feedback of the Camera:
1) Packaging was good and damage proof.
2) Camera is really lightweight, and easily handled
3) Very fast in clicking the photos, and CMOS sensor works well in low light conditions.
4) You never need to get out of Auto Mode, since Auto captures amazing photos and is intelligent enough to select correct mode based on conditions.
5) Am very happy with the quality of images and response time of the Camera after having used a Nikon Coolpix bought 7 years ago.

I read some good reviews and ratings of this camera as I was looking for a pocket size camera which has better capabilities than camera's available in mobiles (specially the low light shots). Good thing about it is that it takes good shots (if you dont compare with SLR's like Canon 55D which is also bulkier and difficult to carry all the time). shots taken under a tubelit room are good even without a flash and wifi capability is cool for connecting and transferring files to tablet and smartphones.
Negatives could be - you need to do good exploring to understand all features. The manual has details but certain things are not very clearly explained specially the wifi function. However for a general user the basic features are enough to get going.
Recommended for anyone looking for above average photographs from a pocket camera

Finally got a perfect image quality with my Canon IXUS 255 HS. I have tried Sony Cybershot WX60 before but disappointed with image quality. Searched on Internet seen the reviews & decided to go for Canon IXUS 255 HS. Image quality is awesome & battery stamina is also good which is around 200 shots. Features are good but misses 360 degree panorama and charging via USB which are present in Sony Cybershot WX60. In my Canon IXUS 255HS I have got more zoom (10X) & WIFI feature which are very useful. The camera shoots pretty good video recording at Full HD.
If you want great image quality with good features then Canon IXUS 255 HS is the best option for you.
Price is some higher but for me the image quality is more important and Amazon.in offered me a good deal.
Superb camera more than a P&S
by Dr. RATAN SINGHDEO on 2014-01-10
1.Vibrant color and images.
2.Perfect Focus, there is no delay.
3.Sharp images with this tiny lens.Almost corner to corner sharpness.
4.No shutter lag.
5.Many usable modes.
6.Battery back up is not at all dissapointing.
7.Once you download to PC or tablet the images are more crisp and clear.
8.ISO up to 1600 is quite excellent. Night shots doesn't require regular flash.
1.WiFi set up is difficult.But WiFi upload is very fast.
Easily I can give 4.5 star rating. Half mark less of 5 due to WiFi technicality.
I recommend this product against any high end point and shoot camera.I use Olympus XZ1 and Fuji XF1.Output from this camera is extraordinary,you will never regret.
Perfect point and shoot camera
by Ajit babu on 2013-10-31
This camera has a bundle of excellent features for the price apart from the sharp pictures possible with it ! I found the wi-fi feature very helpful since I am able to transfer the images immediately to my iPad without the hassle of connecting to a computer etc. The Hybrid Movie feature allows you to take a few seconds of video before the photo. This is a very interesting feature. Another useful feature is the continuous shooting. Overall, I would strongly recommend this product.
by Ezhilarasi on 2014-02-01
I gave 5 rating mainly for 1 feature that i initially didnt think much of while ordering the item. Its the hybrid mode which does a auto recording of video when you are taking snaps. Its like having a short "behind the scene" for each snap.
And its just so lovely to see why my toddler was giving that toothy grin or that weird expression :-)
Amazon beats flipkart on Packaging...!
Excellent camera from an excellent company
by Ankit on 2014-06-19
It is the camera that fit my budget with all the necessities of a camera.
Pros: cmos sensor with digic 5 processor is a brilliant combination.
good zoom of 10x
full hd recording
Cons: The camera pouch that came with the camera was nothing but a flimsy cover that didn't provide any protection. But that's no problem as other covers are easily available.

The purchase was ok it too early to provide feedback since I am yet to use the product.
by Manish M Bhagnari on 2014-03-27
This point-and-shoot camera from my favorite Canon is a good value for money with great performance. It's also very sleek in shape and is highly portable to carry around in pocket. I have purchased it for my friend who lives in Russia!!
high quality compact camera
by Jose on 2014-02-28
I think its an excellent camera. indoor pictures are noticably better from my older cam. may be due to better light sensitivity.
besides auto mode is excellent in many situations. good lens, remains reasonably fast f/4 till 120mm.
