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.
Summary: I got this for my Mother as a gift. Her old camera was only 2.2MP. She has really taken to this camera. She's taking lots of pictures and really enjoying the camera. I don't know anything about the specs for this camera other than the 12.1MP CMOS is a great feature. Images turn out very nicely. Great point and shoot camera with some advanced features as well.
Summary: i got this camera as a gift for my birthday last year. i've always had canon cameras and love them cus they never fail on me and they take beaufitul photos... this is no exception, specially for the price, i thought the quality wasnt going to be very good but it turned out better than expected. easy to use and small, i can carry it in my purse or give it to my friends to carry it on their pockets. super cute.
Summary: I purchased this camera as a present for my son, along with a great case of the same color. My son is extremely satisfied with the camera and all of the features it has. And of course, the quality of the photos is really good.
Summary: Bought this as a gift for my wife. Chose this over other pocket point and shoot cameras because at the time it was the only one with a CMOS sensor instead of the standard CCD sensor. The CMOS sensor is the kind commonly found in DSLR cameras (the big cameras that photographers use). Because of this sensor it easily takes pictures nicer than many 14 and even 16 megapixel cameras. The optical zoom may not be much, but don't worry.
