August 7, 2009

BEIJING, Aug. 7 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Himfr.com, one of China’s leading B2B
search platforms with more than 30 B2B industry websites to its name, compares
Sony W290 with Canon IXUS 110 IS.

Part 1: Outlook

The Sony W290 inherits the style from the Sony W Series. With a dimension
of 97.4 ¡Ã 57.4 ¡Ã 22.6mm, it features an all-metal material case with added
special texture effects. It weights about 145g, with a solid shell that makes
the camera more durable.

The Canon IXUS 110 IS has a more stylish outlook, with a “thin” and “long”
smart design. Dimension for the camera is 98 ¡Ã 54 ¡Ã 22mm, which is similar to
that of Sony W290 but the design features allow the Canon IXUS 110 to be more

Part 2: Functions

In the attempt to simplify camera buttons to free up more space, the Canon
IXUS 110 IS has the setting mode at the top of the lever for switching between
video, photography and iAUTO intelligent modes. However due to the relatively
small distance between the buttons, users are likely to touch the wrong button
which lead to inconveniences during shooting.

The Sony W290 is more practical with a easy to use traditional mode dial,
but the dial is quite small and users with bigger fingers may find it
difficult to operate.

In terms of zoom levers, W290 and IXUS 110 IS are the representatives of
the latest slim digital camera zoom lever design, that one has a left and
right switch-type zoom lever, while the other features a left and right push
type. The Sony W290 adopts the push-type zoom lever design which features a
long strip of keys, but if used for a long time users may find it a bit tiring
to operate within a short range.

The Canon IXUS 110 IS features a touch-type wide zoom lever that uses a
light touch control, which makes it easier for the fingers even after long
operation hours.

Part 3: Display

The display screen of the Canon IXUS 110 IS is very special, with a LCD
monitor of 2.8-inch 230,000 pixels and 16:9 widescreen. It might take users
more time to get accustomed to the view which seems smaller that the
traditional 2.5-inch screen, but the resolution is very fine and clear. The
widescreen mode and HD video mode allow excellent display of widescreen

In shooting mode, backlighting of the IXUS 110 IS shows a clear effect of
the true color, while the anti-glare screen offers a better view during

The Sony W290 features a screen of 3.0 inches with 230,000 pixels, which
is the mainstream of the current configuration. However, the color contrast is
less sharp when compared with the Canon display. However, the screen anti-
glare capability with the Canon IXUS 110 IS is basically the same.

Himfr.com comments that the tiny Canon IXUS 110 IS
(http://www.frbiz.com/consumer-electronics/ ) is more portable and more user-
friendly. On the other hand, despite Sony W290 features a larger screen,
display of the Canon IXUS 110 IS is more pleasing.
