Canon PowerShot SX110 IS

All the zoom you could ever need

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

From a performance point of view, the SX110 has a lot to offer – although there are some disappointments. 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.

That said, if you’re looking for a camera with a wide angle lens, this isn’t for you. The continuous shooting modes make a decent fist of tracking fast moving objects, although the AF system struggled a bit as objects were passing close by, and at around one frame per second, it’s not the fastest system we’ve seen.
