AXIS OF IXUS.
 
In 2004 I bought an original Canon Digital IXUS. Won't bore you with the specs. They are all listed below🙂
 
That same year  I moved to Paris. What! Why? How?
 
Well.....to cut a long story short.....
 
You see 12 months earlier, I met Philippe, who lived in Paris.  He was taking a year's sabbatical from his magazine editing job, and well....as destiny would have it, we bumped into each other in a bush camp in the Okavango delta, as one does, and we clicked! Instantly became soul mates!

So after bundu bashing and almost getting eaten by lions....that's another story...I invited him up to Jozi.  He moved in with me for 12 months, sharing my small garden cottage in Rivonia, leafy suburb of Joburg. Boy did we have some fun!  Not with each other I must point out!  We spent a lot of time, cruising the best Africa clubs, Jozi could throw at us.....

Anyway, Phil reciprocated and invited me to stay in with him in Paris in an equally cool West African part of town. Namely the 13th Arrondissement. A vibey area called Chateau Rouge. Needless to say, I felt quite at home.
 
Anyhow I got really attached to my my little aluminum digi cam, touted as 'the original Canon Digital Ixus'. A palm sized wonder, and probably my first foray into digital photography. This little box of tricks accompanied me everywhere. A discreet petit gizmo perfect for any Henri Cartier Bresson wanna be street photographer!

The Digital IXUS (IXY Digital in Japan and PowerShot Digital ELPH in US and Canada) is a series of digital cameras released by Canon. It is a line of ultracompact cameras, originally based on the design of Canon's IXUS/IXY/ELPH line of APS cameras.

Canon's PowerShot A and S line of the time were being made as small as contemporary technology allowed,[1] and demonstrated the demand for a small digital camera of good quality. Canon used its experience with small film cameras, particularly the APS IXUS, to mass-produce good digital cameras smaller than anyone else had managed up to the time (the first Digital IXUS was the smallest 2MP then available[2]) and reused the popular IXUS/IXY/ELPH brand name with the tag line "The DIGITAL IXUS blends Canon's award-winning IXUS design with PowerShot digital technology."[3]

The first Digital IXUS, released in June 2000 fitted the technology of the PowerShot S10 into a body similar to the APS IXUS II.[4] Between 2003 and 2004, starting with the Digital IXUS II, Canon moved from the use of CF cards to SD cards to create thinner cameras.

Several models have found favor within the Kite Ariel Photography (KAP) community due to a unique combination of small size/ low weight, excellent image quality with stabilization, and the option of expanded manual control including intervalometer functionality available via 3rd party CHDK.
