Canon PowerShot SX100IS Camera: Review
11 May 2013
Summary: Among the various digital compact recently presented by the manufacturer, the Canon PowerShot SX100IS is certainly among the most interesting, especially for the 8 MP sensor and a 10x optical zoom, perhaps the highest ever in its class and still surprising on a compact.
Pros: Sensor, Image Stabilizer, Optical Zoom, Manual controls; Face detection.
Conclusion: The SX100 IS is a bit of a wallflower, both in terms of design and specification. It is not ugly, but it certainly won't turn any heads either, it has a fairly good spec and feature set but nothing that we haven't seen somewhere else before.
Pros: Good resolution, Clean and detailed image output at all zoom settings, Very efficient image stabilization, Fast, reliable focus (except in low light at longer focal lengths), Reliable exposure, Good white balance and accurate color (in daylight), Clear and understandable menu, Well designed and i...
Cons: Noise and noise reduction artefacts showing in fine texture even at low ISO, Very slow flash recycling (especially when batteries are weak), Images a bit soft viewed at 100% - benefit from a little sharpening, ISO 800 and above only suitable for emergency use, Battery life not brilliant (it's use...
Summary: The PowerShot SX100 is a solid ultra-zoom advanced camera. While there are bigger lenses on the market, the 10x optical zoom here means the unit still fits comfortably in a pocket and the images, while a little noisy, are good at low ISO sensitivities.
Pros: 10x optical zoom, crisp pictures, great colour
Cons: Some noise issues, burst mode could be faster
Conclusion: The Canon Powershot SX100 IS is a winner, although I do have concerns about shutter lag when the flash unit is on. The all important picture quality is very good, as I would expect from a Canon digital camera. The camera also has a good set of features.
Conclusion: Canon nous offre un très bon appareil comme à l’habitude, son zoom de 10x et sa stabilisation d’image sera plus qu’apprécié lorsque le zoom sera au maximum. Il offre aussi une bonne sélection de modes automatiques pré-ajustés pour une grande variété de situations ainsi que les modes créatifs Av, Tv,...
