IXUS 100 pretty good HD video but not incredible
Jun 14, 2009

Hi

I just thought I'd post that I got the IXUS 100 yesterday mainly for the 1280x720p video. I also have the G9. The compression on the IXUS is quite a bit more than on the G9 (1024x768) and under low light comes out pretty grainy. The G9 lens is noticably better than the tiny IXUS lens. Video is also quite high contrast so when you watch it on your computer screen at full res you can see quite a lot of artifacts around edges of high contrast. Still, its a fun camera. Great value though, got to admit.

For a compact camera with HD the Leica Dlux 4 may be cleaner and more beautiful optics I'm guessing by reviews. At 3x the price though, you get what you pay for i think.
