Summary

Our Score:

8

User Score:

Over the next few pages we show a range of test shots. On this page the full size image at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have been reduced to let you see the full image, and a series of full resolution crops have taken from original images at a range of ISO settings to show the overall image quality. These pictures were taken indoors using tungsten light.

----

This is the full frame at 80 ISO.

----

At the minimum sensitivity setting the image quality is excellent.

----

There's no real difference at 100 ISO.

----

Still no noise problems at 200 ISO.

----

Noise is starting to show at 400 ISO, but the image quality is still good.

----

More noise at 800 ISO, and some loss of detail, but the tonal gradients are still quite smooth.

----

Canon has wisely limited the IXUS 100 IS to 1600 ISO, and you can see why.

----

This is the full frame at 1600 ISO.

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.
