Macro focus working well again, this time backed up by good colour saturation and exposure metering.

In the field (literally) this shot looked washed out, but the Canon IXUS 140 has actually retained good highlight and shadow detail from this high-contrast scene.

Chromatic aberration (purple fringing) is quite well controlled here, and there's a good amount of fine detail resolved too, albeit at ISO 200 sensitivity.

Again detail is in abundance, though a little softer towards the corners of frame.

This scene had horrible lighting conditions and looked like a complete silhouette at the time, but the camera has managed to preserve some foreground shadow detail.

There's plenty of detail in this shot, but chromatic aberration is an issue if you feel like pixel peeping in the high-contrast areas.

Despite the tiny sensor, zoom in this tight and there's even some attractive background bokeh blur to be had.

This shot taken at ISO 1600 sensitivity shows the level of grain across the shot and colour speckling creeping in to the shadow areas. Consequently fine detail has been smeared.
