  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Canon PowerShot SD100: (3 megapixel ultra-compact) There's no doubt that the SD100 is built to the highest standards, the moment you pick it up you know you are holding a solid and reliable camera. Canon have paid special attention to the controls which have a soft but definite feel to them, many of which are either metal or coated.
  • 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 review and play mode (no live histogram), Good flash exposure, no color cast, Easy to understand controls, good layout, Ultra compact, although not as light as aluminium cased digi...
  • 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

  • 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. This smaller card allowed Canon to shrink the S230's body even further -- and that became the SD100.
  • 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

Canon Ixus II

  • Excerpt: Det här är en bra kamera som tar bra bilder med en upplösning på 3,3 megapixel. Så mycket mer gör inte den här kameran men att ta snygga bilder snabbt är den hur bra som helst på. Första gången jag använda mig av en Canon kamera kände jag mig lite vilsen med knapparna och dess placeringar men efter en liten stunds användning så känns alternativen logiska och det som inte finns det finns inte.
