Canon Digital IXUS 100 IS - Test Shots - Exposure Evaluation

By Cliff Smith



Our Score:


Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera's overall image quality, including dynamic range, colour rendition and the zoom range of the lens. Some pictures may be clicked to download the full size original image.


The wide angle is equivalent to 33mm. Note the general over-exposure and burned-out highlights.


The telephoto end is equivalent to 100mm.


With i-Contrast turned off the shadows are black and featureless, but there is still good highlight detail.


With i-Contrast turned on there is a bit more detail in the shadow areas.


The slight over-exposure has made the colours look a bit thin.


What do you call a man with a seagull on his head?


The IXUS 100 IS is good for general snapshots.

When do we get the s90 for review?

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.
