Compact Flash Compartment
On the left side of the camera, behind a rubber cover, are the A/V out and digital (mini-USB) connectors. Looks like Canon didn't take on my suggestion of sinking these connectors and having a small hinged door.
The rubber cover for these connectors is about the only thing on the entire case which doesn't look right, it simply doesn't blend in to the overall design. It's a real shame Canon didn't counter-sink these and produce a more flush design cover.
The IXUS 330 is fitted with the same extending 3x optical zoom lens we saw used in last years IXUS 300. The lens has an equivelant focal length range of 35 - 105 mm (on a 35 mm camera) and a maximum aperture of F2.7 at wide angle and F4.7 at telephoto (not that fast but typical for an ultra-compact). One thing we liked about the IXUS 300 and it's still true with the 330 is the speed at which the lens extends, it takes just about 1 second for the lens to pop out (although full startup takes longer, see timings & sizes section).
