PhotoxelsCanon PowerShot SD30 review at Photoxels : DIWA member Yin Wong from Photoxels has reviewed the Canon PowerShot SD30 digital camera. The sleek and compact Canon PowerShot SD30 comes with 5.0 Megapixels and DIGIC II processing for high image quality and a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface for fast transfer speeds. When combined with digital zoom, the Canon SD30 digital camera delivers 10x magnification. The DIGIC II processor ensures that the images recorded have superb colour quality, as well as giving the camera improved performance overall. iSAPS technology assesses the scene and adjusts the camera settings to achieve the optimum results. The menu of the Canon PowerShot SD30 can be displayed in 22 different languages.
Canon PowerShot SD30 review at PhotoxelsCanon SD30 camera - White balance
According to Yin Wong: "We find the overall image quality of the Canon PowerShot SD30 to be good to very good, with highlights tending to be blown, and excellent flash portraits. The auto white balance gives warm colours indoors under artificial light [I have those special white light fluorescent]. Best results are obtained with Custom WB; being able to set White Balance manually guarantees true colour reproduction under artificial light. You won't find this feature in most entry-level models. Outdoors, under natural light, the AWB works very well."

Canon PowerShot SD30 compact camera - Noise and Image quality
Yin Wong continues: "At ISO 50, noise is very low. At ISO 100, noise is visible but still usable. At ISO 200 noise is quite visible and is noticeably present as splotches of colours at ISO 400. To test this noise reduction algorithm, we take a low-light indoors shot using a long shutter speed of 10 sec. (There is no exposure indicator to help you achieve correct exposure, so we use trial and error.) The NR works quite well. The AF also works very well in low-light, and the AF-assist Illuminator makes for precise and fast focus lock. Overall, good to very good image quality for a 5.0MP digital camera: sharp pictures, great image detail, vibrant colours, well-exposed, though highlights tend to be blown, and very good portrait flash images."

About Photoxels
Photoxels was founded in 2002 by MyKhanh Wong (Owner, Editor) and Yin Wong (Contributing Editor), the editors behind Photoxels. In 2001, we went on the Web to learn about digital cameras like everyone else. But it seems that the more we read about digital cameras, the more reviews we scrutinized, and the more we searched... the more confused we became. If we were somewhat confused about which digital cameras to buy before visiting the digital camera review sites, we became even more confused after reading most of the (very) technical reviews. Slowly, one article and one review at a time, we pieced together what were really important to know about digital cameras and clarified many of the digital photography-related terminology. We decided to share what we learned on the Internet, and Photoxels was born.
