Now check out our verdict!


The following images were taken with the Canon PowerShot SX20 IS. Unless otherwise stated, the SX20 IS was set to Program mode with Large Fine JPEG quality, Auto White Balance, Evaluative Metering, and with ‘My Colours’ switched off (the default setting for contrast, saturation and sharpening). Image Stabilisation was enabled for all these handheld images.

The individual exposure mode, file sizes, shutter speeds, aperture, ISO and lens focal length are listed for each image.

The crops are taken from the original files, reproduced at 100% and saved in Adobe Photoshop CS4 as JPEGs with the default Very High quality preset, while the resized images were made in Photoshop CS4 and saved with the default High quality preset.

The three crops are typically taken from far left, central and far right portions of each image.

Note: you may wish to open a number of galleries for direct comparison of detail and noise: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ38 / FZ35 sample images, Canon PowerShot SX1 IS sample images, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX1 sample images and Canon PowerShot SX10 IS sample images.
