Canon IXUS 220 HS - Test shots: Zoom, Contrast and Colour

Here are some general test shots taken with the IXUS 220 HS to give an idea of performance ability when it comes to image quality, dynamic range, colour rendition and focal range.

Lovely natural colours from the Canon in this extreme close up shot; those who do purely want to point and shoot and get decent results without spending a lot up from could do far worse than consider the Canon IXUS 220 HS.

No we haven't deployed the fish eye digital effect here; the illusion is merely due to the subject's proximity to the lens at the 220 HS' maximum 24mm equivalent wide angle setting.

Again, when faced with plenty of colour in the frame the Canon comes up trumps in this wide angle snap. Yes, the buildings do appear to be leaning slightly, but we were shooting from a low-ish vantage point.

By contrast a shot taken handheld towards the telephoto end of the zoom; again natural colours and a decent level of detail.
