Characteristic of point-and-shoots, photos are best in bright lighting at sensitivities below ISO 200. Grain becomes readily noticeable at ISO 400, but for the most part details remain decent enough for use at 8x10 or smaller sizes. The camera goes up to ISO 1,600, but photos at that setting or even at ISO 800 aren't what we'd consider usable for much more than small prints and Web use.

The A1100 displays good sharpness and detail at its lower ISOs. Taken at ISO 80, you can clearly see the hairs and fuzz on this raspberry.

Heading higher than ISO 200 won't do you any favors. This photo was taken at ISO 400. While good at small sizes, when viewed at 100 percent the edges are softer and you can see noise in the form of off-color specs as well as smoothness from noise suppression.

The A1100 exhibits a typical amount of purple fringing and is to be expected in this kind of shot. The amount was actually less than most cameras at its price point, though.

The colors produced by the A1100 are spot on and awesome.
