The boxy-looking Canon Ixus 500 HS packs a 12x optical zoom into a tiny shell and it's light, so it'll appeal if you're looking for a camera for your pocket or to fit in a small handbag. It has a 10Mp resolution and can shoot Full-HD video at 1080p. But can it measure up to its bigger brothers when it comes to image quality? We put the Ixus 500 HS through our tests to find out.
