Conclusion: The 2.5 inch PureColor sensor provides 12.1 megapixels though Canon’s claim that these can be blown up to A2 may be optimistic. Rainer Fuehres, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging Europe comments:
Conclusion: Overall, the IXUS 100 IS is equally as fashionable and portable as it is capable of producing quality photographs. It’s extremely user-friendly and ideal for the style-conscious snapper who relies on the ease of point-and-shoot operation while still demanding a degree of image quality that cheaper...
Summary: The IXUS 100 IS is another example of a fine Canon IXUS compact. Auto focus is fast, metering and exposures are reliable, and good quality images are attainable with minimum effort, though said quality is once again at an IXUS premium price.

Cons: Awkward zoom control, occasional noise issues, no Active Control
