About this deal

But, when shooting people or objects that are pretty straight, the photos can show signs of stretching/curving, known as barrel distortion. That's not the case here and even the three megapixel Low Light mode delivered a pleasingly sharp result when faced with our regular doll test subjects. Buttons sit flush with the back panel, including the mode selector switch that alternates between full automatic mode and various functions in program mode. Comparing this with my first digital camera, a Canon Powershot S330 bought almost exactly a decade ago, provides a nice illustration of how much camera technology has improved. Again, not the fastest ever but neither is it something you notice holding you up as you progress from one shot to the next.

The camera takes well exposed images, although at its widest, as can be seen below, detail tends to be better in the centre of the images and there is some lens flare and chromatic aberration in the trees. The last button we haven't yet mentioned on the camera back is the self-explanatory 'menu', tucked into the right hand corner near the base. There's also a dedicated video record button that flicks the 220 HS into its full HD, 1080p and 24fps recording mode.The video quality is a little noisy, but everything else about this interior panning shot is good, from exposure and white balance to audio quality. Things have moved on since then, and with the Canon IXUS 220 HS, Canon hope to appeal to a whole new generation. three or six frames per second to provide a time-lapse movie style effect, further extending the camera’s creative uses. As this seems to be a pretty active forum with a lot of professionals that could help further, I decided to post it here, too. frames per second burst mode at full resolution, full 1080p HD movie recording with stereo sound and a HDMI port, and a 2.

A dedicated video record button located in the top right hand corner of the back plate, in lieu of its own option on the shooting mode slider switch, signals the importance leant that facility, as does a mini HDMI port alongside a joint AV out/USB 2. Auto mode is pretty random in terms of results you can get, excellent in a bright sunny day, but pretty unusable in the majority of other situations (especially indoors). As with the rest of the IXUS camera range, the 220 HS' glossy exterior disguises the fact that this could be classed as a budget compact option.Program mode provides you with more control, allowing you to determine settings such as ISO, White Balance and metering. Please do not feel any sense of urgency based on our data, we exist only to help you save money in a calm and well-thought out manner. Colour reproduction is excellent and the camera performs excellently in different lighting conditions.

but it's still going strong; I love using it and it takes fantastic photographs (much nicer than my Canon point-and-shoot).Next to these controls and slightly sunk into the top plate to help prevent accidental activation when transporting the IXUS is the on/off button. i-Contrast comes to the rescue, making only specific parts of the scene a bit brighter/darker, so the whole picture looks much better. On the back there’s a two-way mode switch for toggling between Smart Auto and the current selection on the exposure mode menu. To see how the quality of the ELPH 300 HS / IXUS 220 HS measures-up in practice, take a look at our real-life resolution and high ISO noise results pages, browse the sample images gallery, or skip to the chase and head straight for our verdict.

Like other HS-series models, the ELPH 300 HS / IXUS 220 HS offers a Handheld Night Scene mode to reduce noise (see results pages) and also a Best Image Selection mode which takes five shots in rapid succession and chooses the best one, which generally means the one with least camera shake and subject blur, and saves it to the card. That said the screen provides a bright contrasty view which is easy to see in most conditions with the usual exception of direct sunlight. back-illuminated CMOS sensor, designed to deliver a better level of performance under low-light conditions, reducing noise and there’s a solid ISO range, running from 100-3200. maximum aperture is actually usable; a setting at which the performance of most point and shoot cameras is degraded significantly to resemble something closer to a watercolor than a photograph. Speed also adds to creativity when filming video clips, thanks to the 240fps Slow Motion movie mode – although footage is shot at a low-quality 320×240 resolution.Press this and provided time and date have been pre-set, the camera readies itself for the first shot in just over a second – which is fast for its class – lens extending to maximum wideangle setting and the LCD blinking into life with an audio flourish. The camera takes the same amount of time again to apply noise reduction, so for example at the 5 second setting the actual exposure takes 10 seconds.
