IXUS 65Trusted Reviews have posted their review of the new Canon Powershot SD630 / Digital IXUS 65 – the ultra compact 6 megapixel digital camera features a large 3″ screen and a 3x optical zoom lens. The Canon Digital IXUS 65 is available for £169 from Amazon UK:

“The IXUS 65’s overall performance is exceptional. It starts up in about a second, wakes from standby in about the same, and in continuous shooting mode at maximum quality and image size it can rattle off an impressive two frames a second and keep it up until the memory card is full.”

Olympus MJU 1000Pocket-Lint have reviewed the new top of the range Olympus Mju 1000 – it marks 10 years of Olympus digital cameras – and features a 10 megapixel sensor, a 3x optical zoom lens, a 2.5″ screen, a stainless steel weatherproof body, and high ISO modes (ISO64 – 1600 at 10 megapixels, and upto ISO6400 at 3mp) to avoid image blur. It also has a new feature called “Perfect Fix” for correction of image blur, backlight (dynamic range), and red eye. The camera is available for £240 from Amazon:

“This is a camera that has an Achilles heel, one it has in common with almost all other 10-megapixel compacts. It is the sensor itself, which is just too small for the number of pixel it contains, cramming so many in means problems with noise, fringing and detail loss. Less is so much more (as evidenced by the recently reviewed Mju 725) in terms of detail and reduced noise problems.”
