Summary

Our Score:

8

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.
