Canon IXUS 115 HS Digital Camera - Silver (12.1MP, 4x Optical Zoom) 3.0 inch LCD
About this deal
At wide angle setting good corner to corner sharpness is for the most part maintained, and even at maximum telephoto setting we were getting nicely crisp detail. Some slight softening again at ISO1600, only really noticeable because the image is otherwise so clean of noise - unusually at this setting and particularly from a budget point and shoot camera.
The wiring which is usually found on the front of the sensor is moved behind the photosites, away from the path of incoming light. Editorial independence means being able to give an unbiased verdict about a product or company, with the avoidance of conflicts of interest.There are also a range of filters available to add that little bit of extra creativity to your images. Once again the LCD's aspect ratio is 4:3, though if shooting video, here a Full HD 1920x1080 pixels which is a nice surprise, the view narrows to a 16:9 widescreen equivalent, black bands cropping the picture at the top and bottom. Canon also adds in digital effects including fisheye, miniature (for stills as well as video), along with toy camera, monochrome, super vivid, and poster options.
A selection of images taken at the camera’s incremental light sensitivity settings, using only available daylight. Results from shooting in low light are probably the most impressive aspect of the IXUS 115 HS when it comes to picture quality however, and performance is pretty much like for like in that respect with the IXUS 220 HS and 310 HS.
So again the IXUS 115 HS is not the fastest ever compact in this respect but neither is it something you notice holding you up as you progress from one shot to the next. A decent depth of field has maintained detail for foreground to background; the shot could perhaps do with a little more contrast, but otherwise this is another very respectable result straight out of the camera. The Canon IXUS 115 HS’ power switch is level with the top plate to prevent accidental activation when generally handling the camera.
