Canon IXUS M-1
Canon IXUS M-1 IXUS was the line of Canon APS cameras. When the first Ixus camera came out it was the smallest if all available cameras and one of the first cameras for the Advanced Photo System. The outside was made of a light metal which was very classy and stylish and the camera was fitted with a zoom lens which basically covered the standard ranges.

The IXUS M-1 was the cheapest version of the Ixus series, with an outside in metal coloured plastic and a fixed 23 mm lens. Nothing special but well, it was an Ixus. However simple it was, the lens cover opening and closing system is quite unusual. You turn the cover a little, the cover opens, you turn the cover again, it closes. This toggle system seems unique and I've thusfar only found it on box camera shutters.

The Canon Ixus Concept series appears to be an M-1 in disguise. Canon has taken the M-1, put it in a designer jacket and sold it for a premium price. Of course underneat the nice package it's still a basic M-1...
