Great on the go camera

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 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: This is a great camera. I had a Canon 6 MP and wanted to update to a 12 MP or higher and I wanted to stay with the Canon brand so I checked out what they had. This little camera just stood out for me. The first thing that attracted me was the color, but that aside, it does great in low light, just like it says and you can choose to shoot totally automatic or switch it over to manual and either choose one of the preset shooting modes or just adjust your own settings.
Summary: The Canon PowerShot Elph 100 is a great camera with a lot of awesome features. It has a big screen, it is easy to use, the picture quality is really good, it is slim and easily fits in your pocket. It is very reasonably priced and you won't be disappointed.
want it to be easier to use and faster to focus. pictures not great.

Summary: I bought this to replace my Panasonic DMC-FX3S 6MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Silver) , which developed spots in the lens. This Canon model is compact and cute. The color is nice. But compared to the Panasonic model, ease of use is not as good and quality of pictures is disappointing. The main things I'm disappointed with: 1) erasing a bad picture requires too many button presses. On the Panasonic, there's one button to "trash" the picture.
Excellent videos and outdoor shots, indoors not so great
6 December 2011
Summary: I really liked this camera at first. Videos are awesome, as well as outdoor shots. Now that I've tried all weekend to get a decent indoor shot, the love has gone. I will give it another chance in the coming week, but probably will return it. And it's not like I'm an inexperienced photographer--true I'm not a professional but I know enough about cameras and how to use them.
Summary: I have been reading all those 1-star reviews where people kept saying something like "ohmygod, camera's bad, camera broke, pictures are bad, lens are awful, do not buy this" etc. What can I recommend those people is to throw out their hands, not camera. Why? My co-worker bought this camera two weeks ago at BestBuy without reading any reviews or characteristics. What we needed was an everyday simple smart camera for taking photos of delivered cars.
"great picture quality,editor has horrible "navigator""
28 November 2011
Pros: picture quality is great, especially got it for close-up macros of small items, and low light detail; it delivers quite well.
Cons: editor has a horrible useless unnecessary little 1-inch thing called a "navigator" that floats on and obstructs the image while editing-- can't get rid of it! editor only does one function at a time, many clicks and frame changes to edit one photo>:(
