It's not every day that Canon launches a new series of cameras. We take a look at the first "family camera".

Canon PowerShot SX100 IS review

 

The 8Mp, 10x optical zoom Canon PowerShot SX100 IS (the suffix referring to optical ‘image stabilisation') debuts a different class of camera for Canon by being aimed squarely at families. This means larger buttons and controls alongside that big lens...

The Canon PowerShot SX100 IS is a sensible, inexpensive option for those who want that big zoom power without having to embark on a steep learning curve.

Canon PowerShot SX100 IS review

 

The SX100 IS looks like a compact camera rather than an ultra-zoom, so its 10x zoom is remarkable.

Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera Review

 

Take great pictures without the fuss. The user-friendly Canon PowerShot SX100 IS makes photography fun; simple operation, compact design and an accessible interface make it a camera that the entire family can use in any situation.

The Canon PowerShot SX100 IS lets you take more than just photographs. The movie function enables you to shoot VGA movies with sound; a long play option allows you to record clips that require only half the storage space of regular movies.

Canon PowerShot SX100 IS review

 

Canon's plastic PowerShot range may not be as fashionably styled as its metal-build IXUS family, but these cameras are generally better value for money while offering a fairly comprehensive feature set.

The Canon PowerShot SX100 IS is a sensible, inexpensive option for those who want that big zoom power without having to embark on a steep learning curve.

Canon Powershot SX100 IS

 

The Canon Powershot SX100 IS is quite a compact, super zoom digital camera. Available in black or silver it has a full set of manual exposure controls. When it comes to picture quality it is up there with the best super zoom models. Recommended.

Picture quality - features - indoor photos - picture sharpness

Shutter lag with flash - build quality - no viewfinder

The Canon Powershot SX100 IS is a more handy size than most other cameras with a 10x optical zoom lens. Picture quality compares well with other similar cameras and there are still plenty of features to get your teeth into. Recommended.
