Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH -

The Canon Ixus 1100 HS is nice to han­dle be­cause it of­fers both touch-screen ma­noeu­vring as well as buttons for op­er­a­tions. It has a good solid feel to it, the sort that gives you con­fi­dence you will get good pic­tures out of it. And it does—to the ex­tent that com­pact cam­eras do. The pic­tures are ad­e­quately good, though you will no­tice colour dis­par­i­ties oc­ca­sion­ally. One bug bear is the delete func­tion. These days, eras­ing a picture is a mat­ter of press­ing a but­ton or an icon on the dis­play. With this one, you have to first ac­cess the delete icon via the Func­tion menu and then pro­ceed. But what goes most against the 1100 HS is its price. At al­most 25,000, it is too highly tagged for a cam­era that of­fers nei­ther man­ual ex­po­sure nor the shut­ter and aper­ture pri­or­ity modes. Its big 12X op­ti­cal zoom, though, can be help­ful in day-light pho­tog­ra­phy.
