  • 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. 'Solid' is probably the best way to describe the performance of this latest addition to the Canon Powershot range. The SX100 IS performs well in (almost) all areas but there is hardly anyhing exceptional about it.
  • 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 intuitive control layout, Comprehensive feature set, Good range of in-camera tonal and color adjustments, Big, fairly bright screen, Good balance of noise reduction and detail ...
  • 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 useful to always carry a spare set of batteries), Occasional highlight clipping, Some purple fringing, No real wide-angle

  • Summary: Priced at Rs 19,000, the PowerShot SX100 IS is certainly expensive in India. At less than $300 (Rs 12,000) abroad, the camera is a steal for the features and performance it offers. If you have any friends coming from abroad, ask them to get you this camera.

  • 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

  • Summary: So does the Canon PowerShot SX100 IS live up to its billing as a super zoom for all the family? OK, so it eats up batteries in a particularly greedy fashion and images can be noisy if you stray above ISO 400, but the build, the ease of use, the range of family-orientated features and that £299 price point – bound to drop to £250 with a little hunting around – should ensure it wins fans among those who want that extra zoom range, but don't need all the bells and whistles...

  • Summary: A low-priced, long-zoom digicam with features to appeal to travellers.Canon's PowerShot SX100 IS has many of the features of the popular S5 IS model but boasts a smaller, lighter body and significantly lower price tag. Boasting an 8-megapixel CCD imager and 10x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilisation, the SX100 IS sports the latest DiG!C III image processor, which includes Face Detection technology plus support for ISO 1600 sensitivity.
