Canon IXUS 220 HS review – Introduction

Canon’s IXUS cameras have long been style icons and the latest in the range has continued the trend. The mid-range Canon IXUS 220 HS has a textured stainless-steel body and features the HS system for better low-light control.

Although it is just over 92mm wide and 19.5mm deep, the Canon IXUS 220 HS has a host of clever features and, available in black, silver or red for a street price of around £170, it is likely to be one of the most popular models in the range of eight.
