GENERAL

The Ixus 185 was introduced by Canon in January 2016. It belongs to the Superzooms category.

Canon is well-known and shouldn't require further introduction, please see our manufacturer's page for more digital cameras by Canon.

CategorySuperzoom
Introduced01/2016
SENSOR

The Ixus 185 features a CMOS sensor in Compact size that has an area of approximately 6 x 5 mm² (0.24" x 0.18").

The Ixus 185's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 20 megapixel. That's roughly average and will be sufficient for most purposes. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed to A3 or A2 size.

The Canon does not support recording RAW images. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computeand involves one extra processing step but will almost always result in superior image quality.

LENS

The Ixus 185 has a built-in lens that can not be changed.

The Canon's focal length goes from 28mm to 224mm, a zoom range of 8x. The aperture varies from F3.2 at the short or wide-angle end, to F6.9.

VIEWFINDER

The Ixus 185 does not come with a built-in viewfinder. The camera's display is used to compose the photo. That can be cumbersome in broad daylight.

SHUTTER

The Ixus 185's shutter speeds range from 1/2000s to 15s.

The highest shutter speed of the Canon is just 1/2000s. That's no longer state of the art and may cause problems in challenging light conditions.

Max. shutter speed1/2000s
Min. shutter speed15s
SENSITIVITY

The Ixus 185's usable sensitivity ranges from 100 ISO to only 1600 ISO.

Min. sensitivity100 ISO
Max. sensitivity1600 ISO
METERING

The Ixus 185 supports all common metering modes.

The Canon will also allow spot metering, a must for challenging motives.

AUTO FOCUS

The Ixus 185's auto focus processor uses 9 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. in low light).

The Canon doesn't support manual focussing. That can be an issue if the auto focus has problems with your subject or lighting.

TypeTTL
AF points9
Manual focus
FLASH

The Ixus 185 features a built-in flash with a range of up to 3m (10 ft.). That's on the low end and will only work for very close subjects.

A hotshoe is missing from the Canon.

DISPLAY
Ixus 185 display

The Ixus 185 features a monitor with a diagonal of 68.00mm (2.7 in.) and a resolution of c. 0.23 megapixel. That rather low resolution is no longer state of the art and will make it difficult to evaluate images on the display.

Unfortunately, the Ixus 185's monitor is not articulated. That can make it tricky to frame your subject in some situations, e.g. when taking selfies.

The Ixus 185 does not feature a touch screen.

VIDEO

When recording videos with the Ixus 185, the highest supported resolution is 1280 x 720 pixel, in other words not even Full HD. That's no longer state of the art.

A connector for an external microphone is missing from the Canon. A built-in mike will usually record everything in front and to the sides of the camera which is not always what the film maker wants. Internal microphones also tend to record camera sounds like focus beeps.

CONNECTIVITY & WIRELESS

Built-in wireless connectivity is not available with the Canon. You will need appropriate accessories to wirelessly transfer images between camera and smartphone.

STORAGE

What memory cards can be used with the Canon Ixus 185?

The camera will accept all common SD HC and SD XC cards.

With an average image size of 8 megabytes (JPEG, fine) a 32 GByte memory card would hold up to 4000 images.

MISC. FUNCTIONS

Let's have a look at some other features of the Canon Ixus 185. That's a bit of a letdown:

The Ixus 185 doesn't have a built-in GPS receiver. If you want to add coordinates to your photos, you'll have to do so in 3rd party software like Adobe Lightroom.

The Ixus 185 doesn't have a built-in stabilizer. With a 8x zoom a necessity.

If you are into HDRs, the camera won't create those automatically. You will have to manually create image sequences and later assemble those sequnces in third-party software.

The Ixus 185 is not environmentally sealed against dust and moisture; keep that in mind in the rain and on the beach.

BATTERY

The Canon Ixus 185 works with a NB-11L LiIon battery. The battery lifetime is an average 210 shots. That's on the lower side of things for a full day, consider a spare battery for the Ixus 185.

The battery can not be charged while in camera. Instead you have to take it out of the camera and put it into the supplied dedicated charger.

DIMENSIONS

The Canon Ixus 185's dimensions are 95.2 x 54.3 x 22.1mm³. (3.7" x 2.1" x 0.9"). This includes the lens. The camera's weight is only 126 grams (4.1 oz.), lens included.

SIZE COMPARISON

To put the size of the camera in context, here it is next to a typical ID card (c. 86mm x 55mm, about the size of a credit card).

The Ixus 185 is not much bigger:
