Atlas, after years of waiting, pity savings, and being inspired by thresca and my ex-boss shots, I finally have my own digital camera. Yesterday I bought a new Canon Digital IXUS 65. An impressively designed, cool looking 6 megapixel with 2.5” LCD and 3x optical zoom at a breathtaking price of PHP 2x, 000.00.
Initially I was planning to purchase a Minox or Slimline brand at Auction.ph. For as low as 4k-7k, I can have a 5MP-7MP digital camera. But learning from the experts, I was told its not about the MPs. What matters are the settings supported, color and light balance, and of course the talent (woohohho). Also the service centers and warranty.
While I find Canon brand really expensive compare to its Sony DSC and Nikon counterparts, its designs are really stylish and very professional. You will really feel the difference of holding a Canon from other brands.
- Easy to use
- Image quality
- Titanium casing and fabrication quality
- Large LCD screen
- Slim stylish design

- Heavy kit (chargers and wires)
- Small SD card included (16MB?!!), but I was given free 512MB SD.
