The Canon PowerShot SX100 IS is the first ultra-zoom camera boasting 10x optical zoom in its compact body. Touted as the perfect camera in the hands of any family member, we found it to be true—the SX100 IS is simple to use, and delivers superb photographs with minimum tweaking.
The SX100 is relatively bulky and can only be carried around in a pouch—too large for any pocket. Similar to other A-series cameras from Canon, the SX100 has a plastic body, however it is well put together and exudes a built-to-last feel. Instead of a five way rocker, the SX100 IS has a rotating click wheel for browsing the menu—quite intuitive to use.
The SX100 IS an 8 Megapixel camera with 10x optical zoom, face detection and image stabilisation. The camera has other features typical to the A series of cameras—scene modes, manual focus, colour swapping, panorama mode and so on. The 10x optical zoom combined with an excellent image stabilisation works wonders taking distance shots. The flash on this camera is simply superb—in fact, the best flash we have seen on any point-and-shoot camera. The SX100 IS uses AA size batteries—on an alkaline pair, we got around 120 photographs; using Ni-MH, batteries we got 400 shots—terrific. The downside to the use of AA batteries is the flash recycle time—painfully long, and becomes noticeable when batteries are low.
Colour rendition is accurate and natural. The camera performs admirably even in low ISO settings—we got excellent photographs even at 80 ISO. Higher sensitivity ISO setting such as ISO 800 and 1600 are completely useless—grainy images.
Working with manual focus and macro was fun, and it delivered some really good shots. The best part about SX100 IS is the ease with which anyone can take good photographs. Video capture is excellent. A 20-second video requires 30 MB of space.
Priced at Rs 19,000, the PowerShot SX100 IS is certainly expensive in India. At less than $300 (Rs 12,000) abroad, the camera is a steal for the features and performance it offers. If you have any friends coming from abroad, ask them to get you this camera.
