Canon Digital IXUS 70 - Test Shots - Full Res Crops

A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and in some case a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.

As you can see, the centre sharpness is excellent, but the seemingly random file compression has caused numerous artefacts and reduced the overall level of detail.

The IXUS 70 has a wide angle end equivalent to 35mm, about average for a compact 3x zoom.

/94/241432/bf8e/4468-CanonIXUS70tele.jpg

This was shot from the same position as the shot above. The telephoto end is equivalent to 105mm.

The lens produces very little barrel distortion at wide angle...
