Canon PowerShot S3 IS Review - Test Shots – Exposure Evaluation Review

This page consists of resized images so that you can evaluate the overall exposure.

The S3’s lens has a wide end equivalent to 36mm, not really wide enough for panoramas, but not too bad.


This is taken from the same spot as the wide-angle shot, and shows the remarkable power of the 12x zoom lens. The telephoto end is equivalent to 432mm. Note also that this was shot hand-held at 1/60th of a second. That IS system really works.


The lens produces very little wide-angle barrel distortion.
