Canon IXUS 115 HS - Test shots: Detail and Lens Performance

By Gavin Stoker



Our Score:


A more general selection of test shots are revealed on this page and next to act as an evaluation of the IXUS 115 HS in a variety of shooting conditions.


This unadulterated wide angle shot at 28mm equivalent setting straight from the 115 HS reveals reasonably good edge to edge sharpness, even if we are seeing focus start to fall off at the upper corners of the frame and some slight pixel fringing under particularly close inspection. Colours are attractively vibrant too.


By contrast a handheld maximum 112mm (35mm equivalent) telephoto shot from the same vantage point. Considering that this is a snapshot model we're impressed with the level of detail maintained here.


Another maximum wide angle shot of a closer subject with plenty of inherent detail which will give a better impression of the crispness captured in the 115 HS' 12 megapixel shots. Although admittedly the wall is fairly well worn, we're not seeing obvious barrel distortion at this range.


Our rusty gate shot reveals more detail than we might expect from a humble 12 megapixel snapper with a physically smaller lens. The camera's exposure has maintained highlight detail in the circular crest under direct sunlight.
