Canon PowerShot A3100 IS - Test Shots - Exposure Evaluation

By Cliff Smith



Our Score:


Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera's overall image quality, including dynamic range, colour rendition and the zoom range of the lens. Some pictures may be clicked to download the full size original image.


The wide angle end of the zoom range is equivalent to 35mm.


The telephoto end is equivalent to 140mm, just enough to see that this sheep has mistaken me for a Welshman.


Dynamic range isn't too bad for a 12MP camera, with some detail in the shadow area.


Colour reproduction is good in the default setting.


The macro range is 3cm, but the auto white balance has left a greenish tint in this image.

No viewfinder. It sucks.

As they don't address the problem of chromatic aberrations at all, I generally don't care much for Canon cameras. But nonetheless, I could recommend the A-6X0-series to anyone wanting a serious pocketable camera. It's really a shame to see what Canon have done to their A-series!
