Summary: Sweet little pocket sized wonder does it all excellently. Only con is it could have come boxed, with a memory card. In other words buying a camera in a box, it should contain all that is necessary to start using it.
Summary: I've had this camera for about 4 month now. I really like - image quality is great for what I'm shooting, it's smaller than the previous cameras (other ELPHs, Samsung, and Nikons), and has an excellent price point. The viewscreen is large enough and brieght enough for using it in direct sunlight. I also bought the Canon underwater housing for this camera and have been very impressed with the underwater images and videos it took.
Summary: I'm going to keep this camera because one has to take into consideration the ease of use and the price. My other camera is a Sony TX1 - also a subcompact, but twice the price. Nonetheless, I would have expected the Canon to have better images than the Sony because (1) the Sony uses folded optics and (2) the Canon is 12 megapixels vs. 10 on the Sony and (3) the Elph 100 is newer technology.
Worst Customer Service, Common Problem Unacknowledged By Canon, $126.95 In Warranty Repair Cost! Outrageous

Summary: We had this camera for a little over 1 month when the zoom mechanism got stuck half open. We googled the problem to find that it is a flaw well know by users of Canon Powershot cameras and is not acknowledged by Canon as a flaw in camera design. The exact problem that occurs triggers the the Canon E18 error which happens when the lens gets stuck while trying to extend. The camera will beep a few times and the LCD will display a little E18 in the lower-left corner.
Summary: I love my Canon PowerShot ELPH 100 HS. My daughter just had her first baby and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the High Speed Burst setting. It is a must have to capture the babys movements and facial expressions. The video setting is awesome as well. I shot a video of my cousins sledding a few weeks ago and it turned out great. I would highly recommend this camera to anyone who is looking for a small camera that has alot of features.
Summary: FIRST OF ALL I LOOOOOVE THE COLOR OF THE CAM AND IT JUST TAKES UH-MAZING PICTURES!!! I GET A LOT OF COMPLIMENTS WHEN PEOPLE SEE THE COLOR AND THE CLARITY OF THE PICS IT TAKES ITS JUST AWESOME. IVE ALWAYS BOUGHT CANON CAMS BECAUSE THEYRE COOL LOOKING AND THEY LAST VERY LONG!
