I'll buy another Canon when I am done with this one.
23 November 2013
Summary: I've had a bunch of digital cameras. The one prior to this one was a Nikon with all the gadgetry and the lighting on photos was horrible. In contrast, this Canon, points and shoots without delays. The photo quality is good. The software is also very compatible with what I already had on my computer and easy to use. I haven't said this about any of the last cameras I've had, but I WILL buy another Canon when I am done with this one.
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.
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 needed a camera ASAP for one of my summer trips and I chose this one. The pictures are AMAZING. It does not have many options for you to take the picture, but indoors and outdoors they look really good. You just need to leave it in automatic and the pictures are very nice. Easy to use and for the price the pictures are good.
Pros: NightScene mode offers spectacular low-light performance. Very quick at startup. Amazing picture quality for the price. Lots of shooting modes to play with. Easy access to flash modes and EV compensation.
Cons: Buttons too small for my fingers. No manual mode. Auto mode tends to overexpose in order to bring out dark areas, sometimes making shots look too bright or washed out. No in-camera stitching of panoramic pictures (requires supplied software).
Summary: I purchased this camera to replace my aging Powershot SD870IS, which I had been very pleased with. The 100 HS exceeded my expectations. After reading several reviews and looking at images taken by this camera on various photo sharing websites, I decided to jump in. I only had it for about a month when I purchased one as a gift for my mother. The pictures are sharp and show great detail especially in low light.
Summary: Bought this for my girlfriend as a backup. She has a Canon T2i, but having to always lug around a DSLR cameral is a drag. She loves having this for just going out and snapping photos for day to day types of things. The camera is pretty quick to turn on and be ready to shoot. The battery life seems to also be very satisfactory. The optical zoom is a nice feature, and works well. Digital zoom is useless and is just a marketing gimmick for all manufacturers.
Summary: I purchased this camera along with a few others to evaluate as a replacement camera for work. Overall it was a pleasant camera to use. Pictures were good, the camera handled well and construction was good. However, in the end I returned this camera and opted instead for the Canon Elph 300hs (black), which is the next model up from this one. This decision was guided by several factors. First, the 300hs has a wider angle lens (24mm vs.
