Canon IXUS 960 IS


Our Score:


A range of test shots are shown over the next few pages. Here, the full size images at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have been reduced for bandwidth purposes to let you see the full image, and a series of crops taken from original full resolution images at a range of ISO settings have been included in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.


This is the full frame at the minimum ISO setting.


At 80 ISO the image quality is superb, with pin-sharp detail and not even a hint of noise.


Virtually no difference at 100 ISO.


There is a very slight speckling of noise at 200 ISO, but the level of detail remains very high.


At 400 ISO there is some slight luminance noise, but colours remain largely unaffected.


While noise effects are more plainly visible at 800 ISO, the motto is still quite sharp and readable. Compare this with 800 ISO shots from other 12MP compacts.


At 1600 ISO the noise level is suddenly much worse, and the image quality takes a plunge. However even at this setting the motto is still readable.


This is the full frame at 1600 ISO.
