At 28mm the 1100 HS isn't the widest compact on the market.
At 336mm, however, the built-in Image Stabilisation does a pretty good job of keeping things sharp.
The 1100 HS is a reliable point-and-shoot compact.
It's possible to take passable shots for the web, or for viewing at smaller sizes, at ISO 1600.
The 1100 HS also offers a dedicated Low-Light Mode, although resolution does drop to 3MP.
We like the added punch of the Positive Film 'My Colour' setting.
Naturally, the digital filters on offer include a Miniaturisation effect...
...along with a Toy Camera effect.
We're not so taken with the Posterisation effect though.
There's also a Macro mode, although it isn't the best we've seen on a compact.
