Great Camera

ST, B&H Photo

  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact

No Viewfinder in This Nice Little Camera

Spoilin' Grandma, Amazon
15 January 2014
  • Summary: The Technical Details (under "See More Technical Details", the expanded list) state that this camera has an electronic viewfinder. IT DOES NOT! I ordered this camera on December 4, 2013 and received it on December 10. Before I ordered it, I contacted customer service to confirm that it did indeed have a viewfinder, as I had found conflicting information on various sites. The rep stated with absolute certainty that it actually had a viewfinder. It does not.

Could Have Been Great

  • Summary: I purchased this camera as a replacement for an older Canon. The reviews for the camera were fairly positive, with the stickler being the possibility of getting the lemon lens. One of the deciding factors for me when compared to others in this price range was that the batter/charger were the same as my old camera. Well, I have been using the camera for several weeks now, and believe I have seen the good and the bad of this camera. Pros: Solid body. Built to last.

Fine camera with some flaws

Peter, B&H Photo
7 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I wanted a smaller camera that took good photos when I travel My big glass hurts my neck after a long day. The images are very good. I am particularly pleased at how I can take photos of old church books in less than perfect light when I do my family history research. The big screen and closeup ability are very good. However, there are two things that make me a little sorry that I bought the camera. I am sure Canon is proud of their touch screen.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Short Battery Life, Touch Screen Too Touchy

Mixed bag

Harriet, Amazon
4 November 2013
  • Summary: Easy to carry in pocket or purse but controls too small to use easily. On/Off control tiny. Since my previous digital camera was a Canon, how to use the camera's basic functions were intuitive to use. Still need to study the manual to learn the more advanced options. Not impressed with picture quality in zoom mode.

Might not buy again

PK25, B&H Photo
20 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought this camera for worldwide travel and taking product images for online auctions. Likes: 1- Finally, a camera where red eye reduction works! 2- Small size makes it relatively easy to carry. Dislikes: 1- Power button is difficult to press. 2- Popup flash location is where I put my finger to steady the camera. 3- Wi-Fi is cumbersome to set up since you need to make a new password every time. I find myself using a USB cable or taking the memory stick out instead.
  • Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Cumbersome Wi-fi, Difficult Power Button, Flash location

Not so good low light - shutter cover fails

Jones "Bookman", Amazon
12 August 2013
  • Summary: I have always loved Canon point and shoots. In fact my best pictures have been with my original Canon S400 and/or my DSLR. I purchased the S110 as an upgrade and expected better shots. Outdoor photos in good lighting and also videos turn out great. However, the camera can't take decent low light pictures, hardly anything great indoors. BUT the worst thing is that literally 3 days after receiving this camera, the shutter cover on the outside of the lens failed to open.

User Review

madnina, DP Review
5 July 2013
  • Excerpt: PROS: a real pocketable camera, super slim and light; good quality build, buttons feel solid; menu is intuitive and easy to use, easy to change settings; ring dial VERY easy to use thanks to a dedicated "customise ring" button. 5x zoom. Good image quality and manual control. CONS: tried to take snapshots in HDR that came out very blurry (the same shot on other cameras in the same class came out perfectly clear). Terrible battery life.
