Fine Camera, but Canon 300 HS is much better for video

Summary: I was looking for a camera to replace my Canon SD780 IS, which was a nearly perfect travel and main video camera until the day it stopped focusing. Based on the reviews it looked like the Canon PowerShot ELPH 100 HS would be the perfect replacement. The body of the 100 HS is plastic, which made it feel inferior to the SD780, but the pictures it took looked great. To me the real shortcoming was with its video.
Summary: I have "fancy" cameras but, sometimes you just need a simple, easy, quick point and shoot one and so far this one fits the bill. Takes good pictures in low light which was my concern and it hasn't let me down so far.
Summary: I own a few cameras, and my boyfriend is a professional photographer. We recently returned the go pro in exchange for this one. The video quality is amazing, and pictures too. If you look at your images on a large HD tv - you'll really see a difference in the quality. We bought two of these for productions, and plan to buy a case for underwater photos. Great price for a great camera.
Summary: 1 week after I bought the camera out of nowhere it stopped working. The lense doesn't open. According to information collected on google is a common issue with this camera, a from other users experience the warranty doesn't not cover this type of malfunction.

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 have purchased several Canon ELPH camera's for gifts over the last few years because I like them so much. They are small and easy to operate. This one has a large LCD screen. It was purchased for Christmas for my Granddaughter who is 13. The picture quality in low light is wonderful and the advanced features will keep any budding photographer interested is trying new things. The video in HD is excellent. I purchased an 8G card for this camera.
