Beyond the technical. Defect (display rushes, extremely straightforward return on Amazon was possible refund successes before packet input from Amazon, Thank you for the great service!) Made the Ixus 155 unfortunately only disappointing images as the viewing on the PC showed. With zoom and high ISO values high noise components, very, very bad shots in less than optimal lighting conditions indoors (such as are almost always given etc. in flat shots, in fact), the colors were not so great. A dear relative who digitally quasi photographed semi professionally with Canon SLR, had warned me that Canon Although the SLR range was very good and therefore he mega happy that one but almost all compact Digi cams of Canon in my price range (up to 200, - can) forget about the picture quality, which, inter alia, on the mini-sensor (1 / 2.3 ") would. I then got the leaderboard of Germany's well-known PC & digital magazine consulted, including a chip is everywhere in it! The then showed me in the mentioned rate frame at No. 42 the leaderboard a Sony DSC-WX220, which as one of the few tested cameras (all digital variants: from SLR to compact Mini Camera) 100% in the price for money received had. Even trying out the store was a revelation that I can not put into words: image quality, logic and simplicity of the menu (Bed.Anleitung can almost put aside) and for "clippers" super simple adjustment of automatic programs with outstanding image results have convinced me such that I have accessed immediately, especially since there still cheaper than here was the camera, incl. a 32GB card in the bundle.
As a result, the Canon Ixus 155 can therefore despite their good name absolutely unconvincing, which I think is a shame and what was an absolute surprise for me, I would not have thought so. Previous camera was a Pentax Optio S10 (10MP), which had by far better pictures than the Canon. This demonstrates, unfortunately, that the constant More of megapixels up does not lead to getting better images (for SLR perhaps, in compact cameras but definitely not because the sensor is too small!), Quite the contrary. Only to get when buying new ones hardly more past this MP-monsters with poor picture quality.
Sorry, Canon, but because you Sony is miles ahead. I'd rather pay twice, got it then but also excellent pictures, incidentally, just in very low light conditions indoors. The difference in light intensity you can already see the direct comparison of the two cameras on the display, the difference on the PC is extremly!
