The Canon IXUS 70 is a classy point and shoot camera. It has a stylish metal body. Measuring less than 20mm wide, you should have no problem slipping this camera into just about any pocket.
A couple of additional accessories you may be interested in adding to the IXUS 70 are an additional flash unit to boost up the power of the built in flash unit and an underwater case. The case is waterproof to a depth of 40m and would allow you to take the IXUS 70 on dive trips.
One interesting and rare feature is the ability to shoot short one minute movie clips. These can be played back in slow motion. This feature is often used to analyse golf swings or tennis serves. Although this feature may not be of use to everyone who is considering buying the IXUS 70 you may look on it as a handy bonus.
