What's an Ixus?

No one can really suggest "what's best" without you defining your photographic needs/expectations. Lacking that I'd suggest you start with Steve's Best Cameras list:

Ixus = European name for Canon's SD (Digital Elph) series. I think the Ixus 800 is the Canon SD800IS but I am trusting my very fallible memory here...

I've been watching the compact camera market for over six months here in the UK hovering between the Canon A700, then the A710IS - comparing the "Stars" definition onon the Stars & Stripes flag at the yacht club (?) in Steve's sample images and various other comparable reference points in the other pictures. However when the FinePix A800 came out with 8 MP and a 1/1.6" CCD at £99I jumped in. Saving was about £90 compared to the Canons.The FinePix images seem amazingly good - noise relatively low though the colours appear perhaps a little less vibrant than apparent in a Canon. CCD specs seem amazing witha dual light sensitivity system apparently being used. Waiting for the review of this FinePix to appear to see how itshapes up!
