Summary: I love this camera - not only does it have a ton of amazing features, but it's also compact and easy to use/figure out. I use it in daily life as well as during my travels. Easily fits into my pocket and takes quality pictures.
Summary: Have had the camera a little while and absolutely love it. Pictures are fantastic! It travels well as it fits in a pocket of slacks. Took a short time for me understand and feel comfortable with all the things it can do. Great product!!!
Summary: This tiny camera is perfect for my needs! I did a lot of research before buying. I just a wanted a point & shoot camera to take pictures of my son. I really love that this camera has a switch to choose between 'auto' or selecting the settings. There's no wheel to turn or complicated menus to navigate when I want to snap a quick picture. There's a dedicated button for the 1080p video. Plus, it's rare to find a camera at this price that has full 1080p HD video.
Summary: I have had 3 Powershot elph series cameras. I admit I am probably a little hard on them, but this one in particular gave out prematurely. Basically to summarize, it takes beautiful pictures and video, easy to work, great features. My problem occurred with long term use of the wrist strap. I would usually carry it on my wrist while walking. I used it for about a year, maybe 3000 photos, before there was an incident.
Excerpt: All I need is a basic P&S. But I'd like decent image quality. I've tried/had a few and the ELPH 100 HS is attractive for its size but I've found one major drawback on the IQ front: it always selects the maximum aperture available. This means depth of field is always limited. On my Fuji F10, as an example, the camera would select a midway F stop in most situations as long as it could assure a shutter speed of 1/100 or higher.
Summary: I got this same camera a few months earlier and had been using it and loving it. It takes really clear pictures, even in low light. I'm no where near being a photography pro but with this camera and its settings (such as light metering and white balance) have allowed me to take beautiful pictures, bringing out vibrant colors and clarity even on cloudy, foggy days.
