The new dinky digicam comes in a sexy all–black design and comes with a feature list that makes some DSLRs look like Fisher Price toys.
Beneath that gorgeous black bod’ you’ll find a 14.7MP sensor, 3.7x optical zoom, red–eye correction, face and motion detection and 30fps video shooting for getting your work on YouTube no sweat.
It’s also the first Ixus to come with a full manual mode, so those of you who know a thing or two about photography can tinker about to your hearts content.
It clocks in at £369 and is due to hit shelves by the end of the year. Will it make it into our digital compacts top ten? Stay tuned to find out.
