Image Performance

Photographs look pleasing straight out of the camera, with well-controlled image noise and attractive color. 

The PowerShot A3300 IS scores a high 1800 x 1800 LPH horizontal and vertical on our resolution test chart. We were worried that demanding 16 megapixels out of such a small sensor would cause more image noise, but we didn't find that to be the case. Image noise is kept to a pleasing minimum. It starts to creep in at ISO400 and can be seen at ISO 800, but the grain is finer rather than coarse, so it looks okay. Even at ISO 1600, the noise is tolerable.

The Toy Camera effect makes even the innocuous look dramatic.

Because the plane of focus can be turned and its size modified, you can use the Miniature Effect creatively for selective focus.

Horizontal resolution measures in at 1800 LPH.

Vertical resolution measures in at 1800 LPH too.
