Thanks for the endorsement Linda. I agree of course and am selling this one only because I have too many. I bought this 265 when my much used and abused Ixus 255 ended up with a cracked screen. Previously I'd had the Ixus 230 - now being used by my daughter, and bought a 265 as a gift for my wife. I'd barely used the 265 when I got a 285 as a gift. So you can see I'm a fan.
