Canon IXUS 870 IS test photos

Just before my departure to the Photokina show, various test cameras arrived at my door. That means making product shots, charging batteries and cramming them into my already overfull suitcase with all the things I need for the Photokina show. For me as press member, Photokina means more than just visiting the many booths; I am also there to maintain contact with relations we have within the digital imaging industry. For me the day does not end when the Photokina closes its doors at the end of the day, that bit may be clear. In between, I will test the new Canon IXUS 870IS and make some pictures with it. The 4x wide angle zoom lens with 3 inch display is the most striking detail on the Canon IXUS 870 IS.

Besides that, a Canon IXUS always stands out through its design; an IXUS owes it to its name. But of course it is not all about appearance. This makes the built-in DIGIC 4 image processor one of the main features with which Canon shows that image quality is taken seriously, design or no design. The DIGIC 4 was introduced for the first time with the EOS 50D and EOS 5D Mark II digital SLR camera, and besides that can be found in cameras such as the Canon Digital IXUS 870 IS.

Canon’s improved Motion Detection Technology delivers fantastic, sharp results by registering camera and subject movement, then automatically adjusting ISO to prevent image blur. Blur is further guarded against by new Servo AF, which continuously adjusts focus on subjects moving towards or away from the camera. DIGIC 4 also powers Canon’s new i-Contrast feature, which brings out great, natural-looking detail in dark areas of pictures - without blowing out lighter areas.

The Canon IXUS 870 IS digital camera is on my priority list to be reviewed soon. In addition to the test in practice at which operation and functionality of the camera are evaluated together with the captured photos, the technical camera test in our DIWA Lab is crucial to come to a balanced final conclusion. The Canon IXUS test photos were taken with a full production model which means that this camera is equal to the model that the consumer can expect to purchase. The Canon IXUS 870IS test photos were taken in Purmerend, the Netherlands. See the Canon IXUS photo gallery at LetsGoDigital.
