As well as being compared against other compacts, the Canon IXUS 105 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs, ultra compacts, travel zooms and pro digicams. The Canon IXUS 105's top rivals come from Canon (such as the Digital IXUS 80 IS and the Digital IXUS 95 IS) and Nikon (such as the D5600 and the D5500)

compared toCompact competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Canon IXUS 105 compared to other compact competitors include: it has a much wider wide angle lens (28 mm vs 35 mm), has better image stabilization (lens vs sensor shift), is newer (february 2010 vs february 2008) and is significantly less expensive ($146.11 vs $610.02).

However, on average it has a CCD-family sensor (CCD vs CMOS) and doesn't have a viewfinder (none vs tunnel).
