  • By Ixus 265 I assume you mean the 340HS here in the states. Unfortunately it's image quality is fairly poor compared to it's predecessor, the 330HS. The jump in MP from 12 to 16 has resulted in...
  • One issue I have in general with the CMOS sensors is their rendition of blues and greens. The blues are too strong and the greens & cyans too muted. I have both the SX260 and the 330 & the 330 is...
  • Well their point & shoot offerings are pretty bland. And the one "cult classic" Elph camera (the 330) has been replaced by the 340HS which has a noisy 16mp sensor. And thats the problem with alot...
  • The colors on the 330HS seem better than most of the other Canon CMOS compacts, but I still kinda think the CCD's still do better in daylight, especially with Greens, Yellows, and Reds.
  • Some places here online have sold out too. Such a shame that Canon gets rid of a quality model, but they've done it so many times before, especially with the old A series classics like the...
  • Yeah get ready for gouging soon, was hoping to see some good clearance prices on a 330HS, should've picked up a 2nd one when they were briefly going for $99 at Best Buy awhile ago.

  • Looking at the sample images comparing the s110 and the 330HS side by side with the building & the sky, the S110 seems abit more washed out, the 330HS is more vibrant and picks up the slight cyan...

  • Thing is most cameras when zoomed in, especially long zoom cameras such as the SX280, have apertures over F4. I really don't notice a large dropoff in quality when zoomed in with my 330HS at all,...
  • Year77 wrote: Great thread. I still marvel at the image quality of the A620. One of my favorite cameras. CCD sensors were far superior in my humble opinion. CMOS may be more sensitive but, CCD had...
  • tkbslc wrote: A620 was awesome. It was pretty much a sleeper Canon G series. It had the same larger size 1/1.8" sensor and manual control, only real difference was the lens was a little shorter...
  • Replied in A620
    Ditto on the A620. Still produces the crispest photos in daylight and still my primary camera for daylight outdoor photos.
  • The default Canon color used to render skies abit more teal or cyan, skies actually are a mix of cyan & blue. I'm glad Canon is returning toward that color, instead of the smurfy blue they've been...
  • I'm glad you see why the S110 isn't worth the additional expensive over a 330HS. The SX280 is also amazingly good. If only Canon made a 330HS with some manual control, but they don't want to take...
  • I would assume the s95 would be sharper, the s200 has the same lens as the newer S series cams which isn't as sharp.
  • Its one thing I've noticed with the s100 and s110, soft/ghosty images when zoomed to a longer focal length, from the samples I've seen. Part of the reason I just can't justify the expense of these...
  • Well I can still adjust exposure, ISO, color, white balance, so its not a deal-breaker. It would be nice to have manual control, Canon could have easily made a 330HS with Tv,Av,& M, but they knew...
  • Its very hard to tell the difference between those 2 images. I have seen lens defects noted in the S110 review at IR¬†Imaging Resource S110¬†. The frosted look seems to appear in the test images,...
  • The 340 is a downgrade from the 330. It uses a smaller battery and will have worse IQ with the 16mp and MUCH slower lens (going from F3.0 to 3.6 is a major downgrade). Once the 340 hits the shelves...
