Canon IXUS 1100 HS

 

Does Canon's latest IXUS flagship touch-screen compact deliver?

Big zoom, compact size, Good image quality, Solid low-light performance

Touch-screen control is slow and fiddly, Lacks semi/fully manual control, Lacks a finger grip

Canon IXUS 1100 HS review

 

Style with a 12x zoom and a touchscreen

Excellent image quality, even at high ISOs ; Sleek metal body ; Responsive autofocus ; High quality 12x zoom lens

Poor touchscreen interface makes navigating menus a pain ; Glossy finish is a little slippery ; Face detection occasionally finds faces where there are none ; 7.8fps shooting is limited to 3MP

Canon's IXUS range has become synonymous with slim, stylish metal compact cameraa that are easy to use and deliver good quality images. The Canon IXUS 1100 HS attempts to continue the trend set by the IXUS 310 HS, IXUS 220 HS, IXUS 115 HS and other...

Canon PowerShot Elph 510 HS review

 

The Canon PowerShot Elph 510 HS updates Canon's SD4500 IS, bumping up the resolution of its backside-illuminated CMOS sensor to 12 megapixels; changing from a narrow lens with a 10x zoom to a 28mm wide-angle lens with a 12x zoom; switching from a...

The Canon PowerShot Elph 510 HS is an attractive, easy-to-use snapshot camera with a nice wide, long lens, and plenty of shooting options, all in an ultracompact body.

The 510 HS's battery can be very short depending on the features you use and its shooting performance is a little behind that of competing models.

The Canon PowerShot Elph 510 HS hits on design, features, and photo and video quality, but is slightly off target on shooting performance.

Picture quality, features, compact size

Stylus for LCD screen

The Canon IXUS 1100 HS is a very good choice if you are looking for a pocket digital camera with a combination of a longer zoom lens and touch control. Once you get used to the screen and improve your touch accuracy it responds well. Picture quality...
