A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality. Some other pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.


Here's the usual detail test shot of the West Window of Exeter Cathedral, for you to compare with other cameras. See below for a full res crop, or click to see the whole picture.


It's interesting to compare the image quality with another 12MP ultra-compact, like the Casio EX-S12, as well as the Canon IXUS 110 IS


The lens quality is good, although there may be some software distortion correction here.


Centre sharpness is excellent. Note that this was shot on auto at 400 ISO.


Corner sharpness isn't so good, with some noticeable purple fringes

I am quite a collector of cameras, some expensive some cheap, my favourites are Sony but I do have some very nice canons and after a search for a sharp image camera used mostly for travel pics I immediately bought the Canon IXUS 100 IS after Jessops recommended it. It looks like a toy but remaining hopeful I began to take my shots. I used the camera in my living room which is very bright and the leather furniture is white and wooden flooring. The picture came with a yellow tinge making everything look yellow, I then used a flash but no different. The HD footage was good but nothing fantastic. I then downloaded my shots to picasa but when I focussed in at the shots, the pictures went grainy. I am not pleased at all and would love to hear from others about their experience with this camera.
