Canon PowerShot SX110 IS Reviews

TechTree reviews the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS and writes;
“Pros: Compact, 10x zoom lens, optical image stabilization, PASM modes, good sharpness, well-implemented face detection, good battery life. Cons: Expensive, too large for a pocket, LCD display washing out in bright light, long flash cycles”
Rating: ★★★★☆

ImagingResource reviews the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS and writes;
“SX110IS would make a great family camera, as it can easily accommodate the interests of everyone from first-time beginners to experienced enthusiasts. A great, all-around digicam. The Canon SX110IS was an easy Dave’s Pick.”
Rating: N/A

DPInterface reviews the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS and writes;
“I would recommend the PowerShot SX110 IS to anyone who wants a relatively compact (but not the smallest around) and affordable super zoom camera with full manual controls for picture-taking, mostly in well lit conditions.”
Rating: N/A

ePhotozine reviews the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS and writes;
“Colour rendition is good and detail on images is plentiful. It suffers from noise a bit too much but that’s due to a smaller sensor with more pixels added. Skin tones are great and this camera is aimed at families so it’s good to see the kids mode working well.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

DigicamReview reviews the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS and writes;
” Image quality is very good – with excellent colour, with high levels of saturation, contrast and detail. The only image problems were higher than average noise when the ISO setting is raised above ISO200, and higher than average purple fringing. There was also some red eye in group photos, but overall red-eye was generally quite low. “
Rating: ★★★★½

CNET reviews the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS and writes;
“Though it’s certainly a good, inexpensive megazoom camera, some aspects of the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS fall a bit short of its predecessor..”
Rating: ★★★½☆

DCI reviews the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS and writes;
” It’s big, clunky, and didn’t score particularly well in our testing, but the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS has it’s own particular brand of charm… It’s not the smallest, fastest or prettiest camera that we’ve ever used, but we like it.”
Rating: N/A

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS and writes;
“Indoors, the SX110 preformed well. The flash offers a typical range for compact consumer model. Canon claims it can reach up to 9.8 ft. at wide angle… It will make a great choice for anyone who wants an easy to use point-n-shoot with a “big” zoom.”
Rating: N/A reviews the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS and writes;
“The Powershot SX110 IS earns top marks. It delivers extra zoom in a compact body, with a pleasing design. It performed well in my tests and would be up near the top of my shortlist if I was looking for this type of camera.”
Rating: ★★★★½

GoodGearGuide reviews the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS and writes;
“A fairly good big zoom advanced camera, the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS has a few image quality issues but its 10x zoom lens, 3in screen and manual controls make it an appealing all-purpose unit.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

RegHardware reviews the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS and writes;
“Picture quality is impressive, with good detail and colour reproduction, although noise does creep in at ISO 400. The 10x zoom is superb and takes you much closer to the object (see our photographs), with the image stabilisation system helping to keep everything steady.”
Rating: ★★★★½ reviews the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS and writes;
“Image noise was visible in long exposures at high ISO settings but less evident in flash exposures at ISO 800 and ISO 1600. But no noise was observed in shots taken at ISO 200 and colours remained natural looking up to ISO 800. “
Rating: ★★★★½

ComputerActive reviews the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS and writes;
“The results are, however, a mixed bag. The camera had a tendency to ov erexpose images when left to its automatic settings. Exposure can be manually adjusted, but then that does go against the user-friendly stripped-down ethos”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PhotographyBlog reviews the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS and writes;
“the SX110 IS could be considered a ‘better’ camera than the SX100, but only by a hair’s breadth. Therefore it’s fair that our individual ratings and recommendation – with the above caveats – remain exactly the same.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

TrustedReviews reviews the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS and writes;
“I’m happy to report that the SX11 IS excels, surpassing the SX100 and addressing that camera’s few problems. The lens is very good, producing very little barrel distortion and only a hint of chromatic aberration towards the edges of the frame at wide angle. Sharpness is very good right across the frame.”
Rating: ★★★★½

DCR reviews the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS and writes;
“Visible noise begins to intrude in normal view sizes as low as ISO 400. ISO 800 is usable, but there’s a big jump up to ISO 1600… buying this PowerShot is also the safest bet around: it’s an unquestionably powerful camera with few blemishes, and thus a buying decision that few buyers will have reason to regret.”

Canon PowerShot SX110 IS Press Release

Amstelveen, The Netherlands, 26 August 2008: Canon today strengthens its PowerShot range of digital cameras with the addition of a new SX “Super Zoom” model: the 9 Megapixel PowerShot SX110 IS, which replaces the popular SX100 IS. Featuring a 10x optical zoom with optical Image Stabilizer – plus a 3.0” LCD – the PowerShot SX110 IS delivers outstanding telephoto reach in an even more compact and lightweight body.

A full range of Canon technologies – including Face Detection Technology, Motion Detection Technology and a new Easy Mode – help everyone take great photos, while experienced users can also enjoy the creative possibilities offered by full manual control.

Maximum reach, minimum weight With a 10x Canon optical zoom – featuring a 35mm film equivalent focal length of 36-360mm – the PowerShot SX110 IS brings even distant subjects into view, making it the perfect camera for everything from school sports days to family holidays. Canon’s optical Image Stabilizer technology combats the effects of camera shake, delivering sharp, blur-free shots throughout the camera’s extensive zoom range.

Effortless ease and creative control The PowerShot SX110 IS features a wide range of 20 shooting modes designed to achieve optimum results in a wide range of lighting conditions – a great help for users of all levels, from complete novices to more experienced photographers.

Shooting modes include a new Easy Mode, which sees all shooting settings chosen automatically by the camera – perfect for beginners prone to making unsuitable adjustments. Easy Mode also limits Playback options to simple image viewing and deletion functions. At the other end of the spectrum, experienced users can switch to full manual control, and customize settings for special effects or unusual lighting. To keep shots looking sharp, Motion Detection Technology – activated in High ISO Auto mode – uses Face Detection Technology, the optical Image Stabilizer and scene information to identify subject motion and camera-shake. ISO is also optimized for minimum blur and maximum image quality.

    The level of customer support provided by Canon is dreadful.

    I’ve had numerous problems with the camera and am having to pay for repairs which are amounting to almost the cost of the camera (allowing for depreciation)

    Avoid at all costs, unless you like wasting both time and money

    I have also had problems with this camera. I bought it in May to take on a trip with me, and the camera performed amazingly until I needed to change the batteries the first time. Then everything started going wrong. I replaced the batteries with high quality rechargables. The camera worked for about 5 minutes, then the battery light started to flash and the camera turned itself off. I have now tried every kind of battery on the market, to no avail. I have since googled the product + “low battery light” and discovered that I am not the only one. Canon obviously produced a batch with a defect – here’s to hoping that I’ll have more success getting it fixed than the other folks have.

    Why am I continuously having low exposure shots? (Actually from time to time, some are fine, but more often not.) I changed batteries. Have I an incorrect setting?
