Showing 121-130 of 500
Indoor photos are much better when taken in the program mode with a 100 or 200 ISO setting

Summary: I have been attempting to replace an older Canon S50 with a more compact camera for a couple of years. For me the key criteria is the quality of indoor photos since most cameras (and smart-phones) take excellent outdoor photos. I have purchased and returned several cameras, that while more compact than my old S50, simply could not take indoor photos that were remotely comparable to the S50.
Summary: I purchased this camera along with a few others to evaluate as a replacement camera for work. Overall it was a pleasant camera to use. Pictures were good, the camera handled well and construction was good. However, in the end I returned this camera and opted instead for the Canon Elph 300hs (black), which is the next model up from this one. This decision was guided by several factors. First, the 300hs has a wider angle lens (24mm vs.
Summary: I ordered this camera for a 9 month trip to Asia. So far I am only one week in but the camera has been everything I wanted both pre-departure and abroad. The size is small enough that I can throw it into my pocket on my way out of the door which is convenient since last time my host took me on a 'walk' we ended up being gone for hours and visiting a bunch of interesting sites. The build is also substantial enough that I don't have to worry about it falling apart.
Summary: I'm not big on cameras and my photography knowledge/skills border on zero, but my work often necessitates the taking of pictures. I received the Canon PowerShot Elph 100 as a gift a couple of years ago and found it was the best camera for someone like me. I rarely moved the dial from the "Auto" setting and found myself pleasantly surprised with the quality of the pictures I was taking.
Summary: I hardly ever need to turn on the flash. I take a lot of pictures at night and they turn out fabulous. The hd movies take up a lot of space on the memory card. That's the only drawback I can think of at the moment. If you're looking for a easy point and shoot camera this works perfectly. There are a bunch of settings to play around with too for some fun shots.
Summary: this was a replacement to another canon powershot that died after 6 years of use - got my monies worth from the first one so purchased this one - LOVE IT - carry it with me at all times - lots of great photos since purchase and expect many more - would buy another one - small in size and great photos for the amateur photographer...
Summary: I'm a Nikon user, but typically carry a Canon compact as the so far Nikon hasn't made a compact that can compare. The 100 HS has an HD movie mode, takes well saturated color photos , and has plenty of gimmick modes (color swap, miniature mode, fisheye, etc.). Most of these are simple software conversions that could be done in Photoshop but are added so you can see the effect right away.
