Canon SX100 IS Review

Canon does not offer an optional underwater housing or converter for the 8-megapixel PowerShot SX100 IS, but uses a 10x zoom 36-360 mm (equivalent to KB). In addition to the built-in optical image stabilisation, the Auto ISO Shift mode, which can be activated with a separate button, automatically increases the preset sensitivity value up to the limit of 1,600 ISO in poor lighting conditions in order to minimise the risk of camera shake due to a sufficiently short exposure time. Manual intervention options are also available with automatic aperture and time control as well as preselection of both parameters. For more precise focusing, the focus fields can be reduced to a quarter of the area. The camera detects up to 35 faces simultaneously and also allows manual selection. Thus the point of focus is fixed and adjusted on the selected face during subsequent pans or movements. Due to the lack of an optical viewfinder, you have to rely on the 2.5″ monitor for the image design, but with a resolution of 172,000 pixels it only has a moderate resolution. The PowerShot SX100IS is expected to be available from October 2007 and will cost around 310 EUR.

I am Peter Dench. Digital Photographer, born in London 1972, currently living in Deerfield, near Chicago. I have numerous photography expositions and also working in model photography. In this website, PhotoPoint, I usually review cameras provided by local dealers in Illinois and by the manufacturers. Sometimes I, Peter Dench, review lenses too, but only when I have a suitable camera for them. Please let me know in the comments if I can improve any of these articles.
