Canon IXUS 1100 HS - Sample Images: General Images Review


IXUS 1100 2
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.

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.

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