Canon PowerShot S110 Digital Camera Review$449.00
The Canon S110's lens no doubt creates a fair amount of chromatic aberration, but the camera corrects for it very well. We found little evidence of lateral fringing in the corners of most of our resolution test images, though the images appeared to soften in the same ways. It's likely the camera is merely correcting for the color fringing that usually pops up around high contrast edges, leaving just a slightly defocused edge instead.
The S110 is equally adept at controlling for distortion due to its lens, as well. We found that the 5x optical zoom still showed a 1.42% barrel distortion at the wide end. That shrunk to just a 0.78% barrel distortion at the midpoint of the zoom range, with the telephoto end showing zero distortion according to our testing software.
