Canon IXUS 1100 HS Review - Sample Images: General Images Review


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.

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.
