Review Price £329.80

IXUS 1100 2

At 28mm the 1100 HS isn't the widest compact on the market.

IXUS 1100 1

At 336mm, however, the built-in Image Stabilisation does a pretty good job of keeping things sharp.

IXUS 1100 3

The 1100 HS is a reliable point-and-shoot compact.

IXUS 1100

It's possible to take passable shots for the web, or for viewing at smaller sizes, at ISO 1600.

IXUS 1100 4

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.

IXUS 1100 3

Naturally, the digital filters on offer include a Miniaturisation effect...

IXUS 1100 4

...along with a Toy Camera effect.

IXUS 1100 5

We're not so taken with the Posterisation effect though.

IXUS 1100

There's also a Macro mode, although it isn't the best we've seen on a compact.

I'd have to disagree; touchscreen control on cameras remains a rubbish idea in principle as well as in practice. Cameras are not smartphones and require a completely different set of inputs and controls. The only actual benefit of replacing all the buttons with a touchscreen is the slight increase in speed size. As far as I'm concerned this is another case of manufacturers trying to cram in new features to give a neat-sounding USP rather than focusing on image quality and ease of use. Along with the resumption of the megapixel war this is quite bad news for people who like taking photos rather than comparing spec sheets.

I really like the size of this camera and since it takes good quality pictures, I'm considering to buy it. BUT... I've read that this camera makes a constant ticking noise while recording video. Can you guys confirm that?
Thanks!

Yes it does make ticking noise and the worst part is that when you zoom you get the sound cut out.canon said that is the limitation on the camera.
this is what you get when you pay £300 for a canon camera.

I really wonder who are the people who review these cameras.do you check the video and zoom?do you check the sound play back?
i raised similar issues with the canon ixus 220 hs which also you highly acclaimed.
i start thinking that you are being bias at trustedreviews as i really don't understand how a camera can cut out conversations when you are filming and zooming and being this expensive and yet you give it 8/10 and other cameras that perform better you give them 6/10?

Sorry canon but a big step up in quality control of your compact cameras is urgently needed.

Touchscreen is big minus for some. However, for me the response was pretty good. It takes a day or two to get used to. The large display sans buttons is awesome. Pictures are crisp and natural, shutter is fast, features are awesome, zoom is plenty. There is sound of motor in video yes. But considering the latest price cut(av. for 180 pounds in India), you can't ask for more. A must buy.
