This unadulterated wide angle shot straight from the camera reveals a good level of detail across the frame, even if we are getting some forgivably moderate softening towards the corners. Rather more alarming though is some obvious purple fringing in the top left hand quarter where tree branches are practically silhouetted against the bright, featureless sky.

And by contrast, a shot from the same vantage point but this time at the IXUS' maximum telephoto reach. Seeing as we were shooting handheld and from several hundred yards away, again the level of detail here is impressive if the image overall could benefit from a bit more in the way of contrast.

/94/1af7bb/0d13/15328-smlcanon310brickwall.jpg
Less visually arresting as a subject perhaps, but this ageing brick wall dynamically displays the detail achievable from a premium class point and shoot. Again this is a wide angle shot and any barrel distortion is both slight and moderate, and well hidden by the crumbly subject matter.

/94/60f21b/2ce1/15328-smlcanon310rustygate.jpg
Our rusty gate test shot, with framing toward the telephoto end of the zoom, makes an appearance one again. Direct your attention toward the insignia at the top to witness the flaky paint captured in all its faded grandeur.
