  • Summary: The PowerShot SD100 is the world's smallest and lightest digital ELPH camera. The new PowerShot SD100, with its ultra-compact size and new white-platinum finish crafted in stainless steel, represents the ultimate in portability, durability and elegance.

  • Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot SD100 Digital ELPH ($499) is an updated version of Canon's popular S230 model (see our review). The big change between the two models is in the memory card department. The SD100 is the first Canon camera to use Secure Digital cards, as opposed to CompactFlash.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality in most situations, Small, elegant metal body, Super fast performance, Impressive movie, playback modes, Has an AF illuminator lamp, Above average battery life for a small camera, Optional underwater case
  • Cons: Too much purple fringing, Flimsy plastic door over battery/memory card compartment, Would like more shutter speed + aperture controls, Body scratches and show fingerprints easily, Wish it had a 3X zoom lens

  • Pros: Good resolution, about as much as we could expect from an ultra-compact three megapixel, Good reliable metering, Low image noise at ISO 50 and 100 (ISO sensitivity higher than indicated), Good color response, better overall balance than most, especially blues and greens, Histogram in record revie...
  • Cons: Limited zoom (only two times optical zoom), Lens softness at maximum aperture, can lead to 'blooming' of light sources, Some chromatic aberrations visible, Color shift of overexposed reds, No image parameter adjustment, No manual focus, Very 'average' macro performance, AF assist misalignment

Canon Ixus II

Pocket Lint
15 December 2003
  • Conclusion: While the Ixus II is compact, light and well styled, the image quality just doesn't match. We were expecting an equal to the v3 but unfortunately were sorely disappointed. Transferring to the smaller memory format may offer the chance to have a smaller camera, but if it means a reduction in picture...
  • Pros: Smaller than Ixus v3, 16Mb SD card in box
  • Cons: Image quality not consistent
