Canon IXUS 125 HS Review

 

Early this year, Canon launched a range of cameras in India that targeted different audiences. The brand showcased models from their Powershot line-up as well as from their IXUS range. At the event, Canon took the wraps off the IXUS 125 HS, a 16.1MP...

Features When it comes to the features of the Canon IXUS 125 HS, the main feature is undoubtedly its stylish looks. This camera can definitely stand out in a crowd and this is all due to its slim form factor. The camera can fit easily in one’s trouser...

Canon PowerShot ELPH 520 HS Review

 

While the PowerShot 520 HS has some appealing features and performance, it also has several cons; more than we typically see with a PowerShot camera. At about $300 USD, we recommend you take a good look at the competition before making your final...

Durable metal exterior available in 4 colors ; Offers that classic Digital ELPH look and feel ; Captures pleasing 10-megapixel photos when viewed full screen ; Good shooting performance ; Loads of useful exposure options; both in still and video modes...

Extremely Weak flash ; Uses microSD cards ; Poor Battery Life ; Luminous noise present through ISO range, causes graininess or speckling when viewing images at 100 ; Tiny rear controls are cumbersome; specifically the 4-way controller buttons

Canon PowerShot Elph 520 HS (Black)

 

The Canon PowerShot Elph 520 HS makes a very good first impression. It's a small, attractive box with a 12x zoom neatly tucked inside and a high-resolution 3-inch LCD on back. Even with the lens fully extended it doesn't get any bigger than an...

The Canon PowerShot Elph 520 HS is a good-looking camera that's remarkably compact for its 12x zoom lens.

The 520 HS' button layout takes some adjusting to, its battery life is relatively short, and its photo and movie quality are disappointing given the camera's price tag.

The Canon PowerShot Elph 520 HS is a good choice for those already happy with their smartphone's photos and movie clips, but looking for a cute little camera with a long zoom and faster performance.

Canon PowerShot Elph 110 HS (Pink)

 

The Canon PowerShot Elph 110 HS doesn't look all that different from its predecessor, the Elph 100 HS , and that's because it's not. At least on the outside. On the inside are a new 16-megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor and Digic 5 image...

Canon's PowerShot Elph 110 HS is small and lightweight with a bright, ultrawide-angle lens and lots of fun shooting options, and can produce some very nice photos and movie clips.

The 110 HS has a relatively short battery life and mixed shooting performance, and low-light/high-ISO photos can look very soft.

Filled with some of Canon's latest technology and shooting modes, the PowerShot Elph 110 HS is a solid ultracompact camera.

Canon PowerShot Elph 100 HS (Pink)

 

With so many cameras announced last year, I sort of overlooked reviewing the Canon PowerShot Elph 100 HS. And that's kind of a shame.

The Canon PowerShot Elph 100 HS is a very good value, offering good photo and video quality outside and indoors, lots of fun shooting modes, and decent shooting performance for its class.

The 100 HS' photos look soft, even at lower ISOs, and its autofocus is regularly inaccurate.

If you're after an inexpensive ultracompact with good low-light photos, the Canon PowerShot Elph 100 HS is one to get. But you'd better act fast.

Canon ELPH 100 HS Digital Camera Review

 

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 100 HS (IXUS 115 HS in some territories) is the entry-level model in Canon's 2011 ELPH lineup. It's also the market's most affordable camera built around a CMOS sensor, which means that it's fast, and it can shoot great...

Point-and-shoots tend to concern themselves with extra features to stand out from the dozens of choices. Touchscreens, long zoom-ranges, share buttons, and special effects are all well and dandy, but the Canon PowerShot ELPH 100 HS (MSRP $199) succeeds...

Canon PowerShot Elph 500 HS (Silver)

 

The Canon PowerShot Elph 500 HS is the more stylish Elph version of the PowerShot S95 enthusiast compact. The 500 HS has a similar lens with a bright f2.0 maximum aperture and semimanual shooting modes. It also has the company's HS (high-sensitivity)...

The Canon PowerShot Elph 500 HS has a nice f2.0 ultrawide-angle lens, excellent photo quality for its class and a nice mix of shooting modes.

The 500 HS's touch interface is potentially frustrating and its shooting performance is a little slow.

The touch-screen controls keep the Canon PowerShot Elph 500 HS from being a lower-cost PowerShot S95 alternative for enthusiasts, but its otherwise a very good ultracompact.

The ELPH 500HS is an amazing compact digicam, surpassing expectations in image quality and lightning performance. This will be great for anyone with the patience to learn to use the touch screen. Read more in our Full Conclusion.

Touch LCD is difficult to use ; Descent flash, weak on telephoto end ; Poor Battery Life ; The standard burst mode didn't live up to Canon's claim of 3.4fps or 8.2fps High Speed Burst
