Ixus 870 or 980???
« on: December 10, 2008, 10:22:08 PM »
Hi,

Im planning to get an Ixus, Im choosing between the IXUS 870 IS which has wide angle at 10MP or IXUS 980 IS with manual controls??? at 14.7MP.

Which would you guys recommend? is there really a big difference in these models? would it be worth it considering its price or it would be wise to just get the very basic IXUS 80 IS?

Thanks so much!

I think the Ixus series cameras all have similar controls. The 'manual' controls for this series are also a lot tougher to use vis-a-vis the Powershots, so that's not really a factor I think.

Personally I'd go for the one with a wider lens. It's easy to step forward but a lot tougher to step back  when composing your shot ;) Bonus din na mas konting MP sya...
