Excerpt: The new Canon PowerShot S110 is an understated and rather elegant little P&S digital camera that offers a lot of professional features. The S110 (like its "S" series predecessors) was designed for serious photographers looking for a pocketable compact camera with lots of creative capability.
Pros: Compact, Easy to use, First rate optics, Excellent image quality, Manual exposure capability
Summary: The Canon PowerShot S110 is a great compact camera with many features automatic and manual that lead back (in outline) Reflex in the world. Even the price if you want to Reflex and it would be more justified if we found the waterproof case in the sales package (this is optional), even if we have to take into account that the features of the camera will find WiFi and GPS.
Pros: HS System, ISO 12800 maximum, Smart Auto (58 scenes), built-in WiFi, Full manual control; DIGIC 5; mini HDMI port, Intelligent IS, GPS module; HDR Mode, High-speed Burst HQ, ND filter; CMOS sensor with high sensitivity; Lens f / 2 very bright; Lens Control Ring, Capacitive Touch Screen Display
Conclusion: It’s a given that you’ll get better performance from a camera with a larger sensor, but more convenience out of a smart phone. So, where does the S110 fit in? It fills that niche where you want excellent image quality but you don’t want to lug around an interchangeable lens camera, no matter how compact some mirrorless ones are. The S110 is an amazing little camera that thinks it’s a more powerful shooter, and it backs it up with its picture and video quality.
Pros: Great photo quality and performance, even in low light, Faster autofocusing than predecessors, Easy to use, yet has plenty of user-adjustable options
Cons: Wi-Fi not the easiest to use, somewhat half-baked, Slow continuous shooting
Summary: The PowerShot S110 makes a number of improvements and alterations to what was already a very popular and well-liked model but, crucially, nothing Canon has done compromises its prime attraction and its biggest competitive advantage - its compact and lightweight body. A couple of minor changes aside, the S110 looks like the earlier S100 and shares exactly the same dimensions and weight.
Pros: Smaller than other high-end compacts., 3 inch 461k dot touch-screen., Wi-fi network and smartphone connectivity., 5x 24-120mm zoom.
Cons: Poor battery life., Lacks movie PASM modes., No built-in GPS., Lacklustre continuous shooting.
Excerpt: It seems like only a year ago we were telling you about the Canon Powershot S100 — wait, it WAS a year ago, almost to the day. So, in celebration of that anniversary, Gear Patrol, or rather Canon, brings you the next evolutionary step in point-and-shoot cameras, the Powershot S110 ($449) , scheduled to hit stores in November. Besides an extra 10% of numerology, Canon adds Wi-Fi for automatic picture uploads and subtracts GPS, which drained battery life.
Summary: The Canon PowerShot S110 is a really versatile, very small camera that would be a great carry-anywhere option for the more ambitious photographer and anyone looking for a point-and-shoot to supplement their dSLR.
Pros: Wide maximum aperture; Built-in Wi-Fi; Raw shooting; Plenty of manual controls; Very small.
Cons: Wind noise on movies; Undercut by competitors.

Summary: The canon PowerShot S110 has the same scores as the S100 in build/handling, dynamic range, AWB/colour, metering, autofocus and LCD/viewfinder, with one extra mark for its features and a deduction of two points in noise, resolution and sensitivity because of the improvements of other high-end compact cameras over the past year. Image quality is good without being class-leading, being superseded by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100.
