Canon IXY Digital 25 IS a.k.a Canon Powershot SD770 IS. I recently purchased this small yet powerful digital camera from a Canon Dealer in Hong Kong. This 10 megapixel devil is really very very small, seriously.
Let’s see some features that i now know about. Canon IXY Digital 25 IS, wherein IS stands for Image Stabilization is a 10megapixel camera and supports 3x optical zoom. It has a small 2.5inch LCD Display and has a slim and a stylish design. The camera comes under the category of Ultra Compact digital camera. Sounds nice
I checked the resolution today. It’s pretty big with max resolution at 3648×2736 and min at usual 640×480. What’s most amazing feature of this camera is it’s boot time. I pressed on/off button and Tadaaaaannn…. What did it take? Almost 1 second as i can recall. It’s good! Anyways…other good feature is that this camera has this Face Detection Technology – well something that shows squares on faces specially while you are taking group pics, etc. The main purpose is to focus more on face of the person rather than that much lighted area behind you! And that reminds me of the red eye correction. So no more red eyed vampires in my pics!
Also what i need is the motion detection sensor. I clicked some pics of the fast moving cars, just for the same reson and this sensor works pretty well so far! And lastly and most importantly, Canon IXY Digital 25 IS has a DIGIC III Processor. It provides lightning quick responses, superb image quality and advanced noise reduction. Humm. I don’t know how much noise it used to make, but can’t hear any on this machine! And yes!!! It does shoot movie as well. Though not a huge quality work in there but still pretty good! High Senstivity (ISO 1600) and the battery needs charging after 300+ shots. Can’t recall. Well that’s the most important features you should know about if you are looking forward to buy this camera.
This is how Canon IXY Digital 25 IS looks!
One more thing though. The camera comes with 32 MB card, as i recall. Believe me, that’s useless. Throw that away and get a 8GB card for your camera. Get Kingston 8GB SDHC Class 4 memory card and you should do fine. I can take 3000 pics without worrying about any space.
Hope you liked my “not so good” review on Canon IXY Digital 25 IS
