Conclusion

Introduction

Promoted as "the photographer?s IXUS" by Canon, the new Digital IXUS 860 IS is one of the more intriguing models in Canon's Autumn lineup of compact digital cameras. The new Canon IXUS 860 IS offers an 8 megapixel sensor and a wide-angle 3.8x zoom lens equivalent to 28-105mm, complete with optical image stabilisation to help ensure that your photos are shake-free. There's also a large 3 inch LCD screen with 230,000 pixels and an anti-glare, scratch-resistant coating. Canon's DIGIC III image processor, which is also used in its DSLR camera range, powers the IXUS 860 IS behind the scenes, and additionally provides the camera's Face Detection and Noise Reduction technologies. There's a new Red-Eye Correction feature on offer in Playback mode, a range of ISO speeds up to 1600 and a new ISO Auto Shift function to help avoid image blur whenever camera shake is predicted. So is the stylish Canon Digital IXUS 860 IS really a great compact camera for the more serious photographer? Read our in-depth review to find out.

Ease of Use

The Canon Digital IXUS 860 IS is a very well-made compact digital camera, with a stylish two-tone black and silver metal and plastic body and excellent overall finish. It has a pleasingly simplistic, clean overall design, with a pronounced curve on the right-hand side (looking from the back of the camera). If you require a pocket camera that is good-looking, then look no further - I'd go so far to say that this is the most well designed IXUS yet. The Canon Digital IXUS 860 IS is easily small enough to fit into the palm of your hand, weighing 155g without the battery or memory card fitted. Most aspects of the design and build have a quality feel with nothing really feeling flimsy or ill-thought out. There are a few minor criticisms that can be leveled at the Canon Digital IXUS 860 IS, mostly concerning the various covers. The plastic A/V Out / Digital port cover on the right side of the camera feels a little flimsy, as does the battery/memory card compartment cover, which is also trickier to open than it really should be. Otherwise the Canon Digital IXUS 860 IS scores top marks for its general design and build quality.

Hi im using a canon digital ixus 9515 camera and I have the wrong date stamp on all my recent photos. How can I delete the date?

There is no way you can delete the date stamp from the photos you have taken.
For future photos you can either correct the date or disable insertion of date stamp.

How can I unlock my photo card. When I turn on the camera, It says "card locked".

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
If that doesn't work, try another card.

Many photos have disappeared from my camera, it's a Canon PowerShot DS800 IS. After you've taken a bunch do they get stored somewhere automatically? I haven't deleted anything, and I can only see about 5...

Yes they should have been stored automatically to the camera's SD memory card. Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, and take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones.

You may get the shots you are looking for. I do not know if you can set the focus manually in this camera.
