SX260 Vs IXUS 255/ELPH 330
7 months ago

I've spent some time trying to get the same result from my new IXUS255 as I get from my older SX260, some of my experiments are here: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53435777

Because I like the SX260 output so much I have used it as a standard to reach.

This is the settings that I have always used in the SX260 and the resulting image:

P mode

Metering Centre Weighted Average

EV= -.3

Icontrast=AUTO

My colors Contrast = +1

My colors Sharpening = -1 (resharpened after reducing to web size)

SX260 @ 25mm

This is the IXUS 255/ELPH 330 settings that get closest to the SX260, and the resulting image:

P mode

Metering Centre Weighted Average

EV= -.3

Icontrast=AUTO

My colors contrast = +1

My colors Sharpening = -1 (resharpened after reducing to web size)

My colors Saturation =+1

My colors Red = 0

My colors Green = +1

My colors Blue = -1

IXUS 255/ELPH 330 @ 24mm

The IXUS has a closer macro than the SX260 but only half the zoom.  Also note the amount of the wider view from the IXUS 24mm Vs the SX260 25mm.

They make a nice pair of very portable cameras with slightly different abilities, but able to back up each other in case one is broken or stolen while on a tour.
