Excerpt: This camera is very small yet has a nice zoom reach. Lens optics are okay, nothing to write home about and the images can be rather noisy when the camera is used indoors under available light.
Excerpt: The specifications shown here for the 115 IS are actually those for the 110 HS! This camera has an 8x zoom, starting at 28mm, a 2.7" rear LCD, a slower lens, a smaller sensor, and only shoots up to 720p video, not 1020p video. If you want the faster 5x zoom and the better video, get the 110 HS.
Excerpt: MY BACKGROUND: I recently lost my 300hs again because it is so small. LOL This is the best replacement over the 320HS because I just didn't want a touchscreen or GPS which runs the batteries down. Why do I get excited every time I get a new point and shoot?
Excerpt: This camera is standard enough for the price in my opinion. It has a good shape as it is nice and slim so very easy to carry around in a handbag or pocket, even with the case on. It is a 16 megapixel camera which I find is fine for basic photography such as holiday snaps etc.
Practical and capable little point-and-shoot but a little under the quality of past IXUS models

Summary: My first digital camera was an IXUS 700 in 2005 and, costly as it was, it's still going strong on its original battery. In 2011, shopping for a family gift, I bought the IXUS 115 and again was most impressed (at a more affordable price tag by that point).
Summary: I've been a Canon fan half my life. From excellent point-and-shoot 35mm compacts through EOS SLR to my current EOS dSLR. And always very satisfied with the quality for the price. I don't take my dSLR everywhere, and I like a camera in my pocket.
