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.
Excerpt: This is my fourth compact .. and the cheapest ( E100 ). It seems to be an entry model and looks and feels like it. In the range ixus 40 / 50 / 75 I've owned it is still using the same battery. Build quality is quite poor compared to those. But as it is my everday backpack-cam I does allright. Image quality is decent but not spectacular. It is the kind of camera you take along in situations where you might expect it to get damaged or lost.
Summary: Hello at Amazon, It appears that you sold to me used camera for the price of new one. It was even not properly packed, there is some kind of glue at the bottom of camera and no camera's cover has been provided. Another words, it is totally different when I got mine first same model from other on-line store. I am not sure if I need to thank Amazon for that. Regards, Valery Kats.
