Canon Ixus 300HS gets unboxed

This latest point-and-shoot digital camera from Canon is a looker. A new iteration in the Ixus line-up, the Canon Ixus 300HS promises high speed, better low-light performance and manual controls in an ultra-compact camera.

The Ixus 300HS (also known as PowerShot SD4000 IS) has some pretty nice specs with a 10MP CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 processor.

  3. Hmm, as for me, it looks like a bulged-up Nokia N70 at first glance, haha :D
    But that’s one nice camera though. :) I like the built in fish-eye feature :)

    i actually like the design! looks rugged.. hindi na kailangan ng “bumper”

    kung gumagawa lang ng celfone ang canon.. may paglalagyan ang iphone!

    lagyan mo lang ng sim yan, ok na!

    nice…the red one looks cool! I sure hope they create one in white!

    Black and silver are too common for a digicam.

    Just want to know where is the gray market that you have mentioned on your blog? Well I’m interested on that product.

    save yourself 24,950 (17k at black market) and get the Canon s95 instead. Better in every aspect.
