Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS

 

The PowerShot SD1100 IS adds a few new features to its Editors' Choice predecessor, but the SD1000 still can't be beat in terms of image quality and shooting flexibility.

Little noise at high ISO settings. Image stabilization. Optical viewfinder. Antireflective LCD.

Function button is flat and hard to find by touch. Wide-angle lens is not as wide as the SD1000's. ; Watch the Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Video Review!

Canon SD1100 IS Digital ELPH (IXUS 80 IS) Concise Review

Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital ELPH Digital Camera - Review - The Imaging Resource!

 

The Canon SD1100 IS Digital ELPH includes an eight megapixel 1/2.5" CCD imager and a Canon-branded 3x optical zoom lens with image stabilization, which covers a fairly standard range of 38-114mm equivalent -- a moderate wide angle to a moderate telephoto

Optical image stabilization ; DIGIC III image processor just like the big boys ; Facial detection for portraits and to confirm those smiles afterwards ; Small, sleek body design ; High resolution LCD ; Good performance figures, especially for a bargain...

Flash washes out extreme macro shots ; Moderate chromatic aberration at wide angle ; Soft corners at wide angle ; High contrast in harsh lighting ; Flash takes just under 10 seconds to recharge after full-power shot ; Very small MMC card included ;...

Exposure is fully automatic, but the user can tweak it with 2.0EV of exposure compensation and four metering modes to handle difficult lighting, including a mode which ties metering to the camera's face detection system

Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital ELPH Review

 

The biggest feature on that list is definitely image stabilization. It's really the only thing the SD1000 was missing, and I think everyone's glad to see this new feature

Very good photo quality (in good light) ; Stylish, ultra-compact metal body; comes in five colors ; Optical image stabilization ; Snappy performance ; Sharp 2.5" LCD has good outdoor and low light visibility ; Optical viewfinder (a rarity these days) ;...

Noisy images in low light; some NR artifacting at low ISOs in good light ; Corner blurriness and purple fringing an issue ; Zoom setting not shown on LCD ; Flash a little slow to charge ; More manual controls would be nice ; Flimsy door over memory...

All things considered, the PowerShot SD1100 is a quality ultra-compact camera. It offers good photo quality, snappy performance, and image stabilization in a sleek, stylish metal body. Sure, there's room for improvement, but I'm yet to review a perfect...

Nicely saturated colors, Accurate but bright exposure system, Fast and responsive, Good focusing speed, Great LCD visibility, Easy to use interface

Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Review

 

Last year's retro-minimalist Canon PowerShot SD1000 got rave reviews from both professional camera reviewers and ordinary consumers because it delivered everything an ultracompact digicam could reasonably be expected to provide.

Good image quality ; Image stabilization ; Robust build quality

Chromatic aberration ; Zoom not as sharp as the SD1000's ; Battery life could be better

What made the SD1000 unique in a flood of generally competent but mostly uninspired mini-cams was not its old school style or its flashy collection of features, but its proficiency and dependability as a digital image-maker
