Design: The SD1100 is aimed at the photographer who wants an ultracompact and stylish digital camera.

Resolution: 8MP

Optical zoom range: The focal length range of the lens is 38-114mm equivalent. It’s just too bad that the SD1100’s focal length doesn’t start at 28mm as that would have made it much easier to capture wide-angle photos such as group shots, scenics and architecture.

Rear LCD: 2.5 inches

Face detection: Focus, exposure, flash and white balance is automatically set.

The photo on the right illustrates the SD1100’s face detection technology — skin tones are not affected by the overall lighting as the camera automatically compensates the WB (white balance).

ISO range: 80 to 1600, with automatic and high ISO automatic (powered by Motion Detection Technology) modes.

Weight: 125 g (4.4 oz) without batteries.

Dimensions: 86.8 x 54.8 x 22.0 mm (3.4 x 2.2 x 0.9 in.)
