Summary: do not buy this camera. cannon purposely disabled videos from being longer then 10 minutes to force people to buy separate digital video cameras. otherwise it takes great pictures but i was looking forward to taking videos longer then 10 minutes!
Summary: I bought this camera to replace a 7 year old Cannon that I lost. One reason for choosing this camera was the special battery, as I have trouble getting "reusable" AA batteries to charge properly and hold a charge. After getting the camera and reading the directions it says to always charge the battery before each use. I called Cannon, they said the battery continuously discharges due to constant parasitic load.
Summary: After my previous Canon died on me, I started the search fo new camera. I've red many reviews to learn a couple of issues: un-reliablily of made in China Camera, Design issue of made in Japan camera and run out of power of GPS units. After reading these, I thought there is no perfect camera why I bother pay a lot of money, so I decided Canon Powershot 100. The camera is working so far, but I wanted to mention a couple of issues.
Fine Camera, but Canon 300 HS is much better for video

Summary: I was looking for a camera to replace my Canon SD780 IS, which was a nearly perfect travel and main video camera until the day it stopped focusing. Based on the reviews it looked like the Canon PowerShot ELPH 100 HS would be the perfect replacement. The body of the 100 HS is plastic, which made it feel inferior to the SD780, but the pictures it took looked great. To me the real shortcoming was with its video.
