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 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.
Cons: Wind noise on movies; Undercut by competitors.
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: Editor's Note: During 2001, Canon released the Canon PowerShot S110 Digital ELPH camera. The 2012 model of the Canon PowerShot S110 is the follow-up model to 2011's Canon PowerShot S100 and 2010's Canon PowerShot S95 . Following up on the popularity of the S100, Canon has announced the upgraded PowerShot S110 to improve on the touchscreen quality as well as add Wi-Fi capabilities.
Summary: Nice photo quality, improved autofocus performance, and a very compact design make the Canon PowerShot S110 a solid option if you're looking for something between a point-and-shoot and an enthusiast compact. But if you can find them cheaper, the S100 or S95 are still good alternatives.
Cons: A not-very-impressive implementation of the new wireless connectivity features and still-sluggish image processing weigh down the camera.
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.
The Canon PowerShot S110 is the latest revision of the company's premier high-end compact camera model.

Conclusion: Since 2009's S90, Canon's S-series cameras have been perennial favorites for shoppers looking to get good image quality in a pocketable form factor. With so much success, perhaps it's understandable that Canon hasn't changed the formula much in the past three years. The PowerShot S110 is the third update, and it looks almost exactly like its predecessors—touch control and wireless connectivity are the only real additions over last year's PowerShot S100 .
