Cameras.co.uk have recently posted a review of the Canon PowerShot SD600 / IXUS 60, a 6.0 megapixels point-and-shoot digital camera (released on 21.02.06) featuring 3x Optical Zoom lens (35 – 105mm equivalent), a 2.5″ LCD screen, and a real image optical view finder.
“Looking at the outdoors landscape type shots this camera produces images that are noticeably sharper. In the first test shot there is a building and both the brickwork and tiles on the roof are more keenly focused with the IXUS 60. This marks out the IXUS 60 as one of the sharpest pocket sized digital cameras around. The shots also remain in focus towards the edges. This is another sign of a good quality lens…Noise levels at ISO 400 are not as bad as with some digital cameras I have tested, but are still very noticeable. At ISO 800 there is a clear deterioration in picture quality and I would suggest only using this setting in an emergency where nothing else will allow you to get a picture.”
