DP Review
2 February 2009
  • Conclusion: The SD1100 is a 'typical' IXUS/SD in many respects. It is compact, well built and sports a reasonably attractive design. It offers good output quality in most situations - straight out of the cam - only requiring minimal user intervention. It is also typical in so far as you won't find any groundbreaking innovations on the spec sheet. As usual Canon has chosen the safe route by sticking to what they know best.
  • Pros: Very compact body, Decent edge-to-edge sharpness, Clean results at low ISO settings with bright, print-friendly color 'straight out of the box', Accurate and reasonably quick focus (although slightly slower in low light), Good responsiveness and overall speed, Excellent user interface and menus - very intuitive, Efficient image stabilization, Very good build quality and attractive design, AF point zoom useful for macro work and portraits, Good flash recycling times, B...
  • Cons: Battery life when using LCD not brilliant, Slightly underpowered built-in flash, Little manual control, Poor Auto White Balance performance under artificial light, Pretty noisy at any sensitivity above ISO 200 (decent detail retention though), Some highlight clipping, Some noise reduction detail blurring even at base ISO, Viewfinder so tiny as to be virtually pointless, Lens a little soft at the long end, Wide end of the lens is not exactly wide, Shutter speeds slower...

Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS

PC Magazine
18 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The PowerShot SD1100 IS adds a few new features to its Editors' Choice predecessor, but the SD1000 still can't be beat in terms of image quality and shooting flexibility.
  • Pros: Little noise at high ISO settings. Image stabilization. Optical viewfinder. Antireflective LCD.
  • Cons: Function button is flat and hard to find by touch. Wide-angle lens is not as wide as the SD1000's.

  • Summary: Like the many Canon Digital ELPH's before it, the SD1100 is an attractive pocket camera that's easy to use and feels great in your hand. Though its image quality was only slightly above average, the SD1100 consistently produced appealing images on our tests, making this a dependable and stylish choice for under $250.
