Summary: I purchased this camera based on its outstanding history and track record for being a very good device. Yes its older, but works better than many new and more expensive units ive bought. The only drawback- the Memory card and needing a card reader to transfer the pictures to the PC. yes it has a cable port but only one end is usb into the PC to the camera is some odd type of connecter- so typical usb cables dont work. Thants the only negative I can say.
Summary: We also use an SLR and wanted the digital to replace our point-and-shoot, especially for a new baby with all of our family out of state. We picked this model for its size, the proprietary rechargable battery system, the optical zoom and resolution, and its ability to interface with Mac computers. We are very happy with its performance in all these respects.
Summary: I just got this awesome little toy on Friday night, and realized that I need a copy of my invoice for the rebate. Since my scanner no longer works, I tried taking a photo of the invoice with my new Canon S110. I was astounded by how clear the image came out. I had no problem reading every little detail on the page and it made for a great copy. Then I got more ambitious and used it to photograph an old 3x5 photo from the family album.
Summary: I was a bit skeptical at first - I don't know why, maybe because of it's unbelievably tiny size, but I've always relied on Canon for quality cameras. This one hasn't disappointed me one bit! I can see where it might be a problem for some men, since the tiny size could be completely lost in a large hand. If you need a comparison, this camera is the *exact* size and shape as a pack of cigarettes.
Summary: I searched for 6 months for an ideal digital camera and this is it. I own a regular APS Canon film Elph and was interested in the digital version, but I could never find one in a store that worked so I could check out how the software worked. So, I was reluctant to purchase. I found a site called dpreviews dot com and it was just what I needed. Their reviews are so detailed that I learned everything I needed and did the comparison reviews too.
Summary: This camera is a great replacement for your old 35mm. It takes great snapshots and is easy to use. While the small size is great, it might be too small for big hands. The battery charges very quickly. The only problem I've encountered is the flash. Finding a distance that will illuminate the subject perfectly can be tricky. In low-light the corners tend to be dark if you're too far away. I'm sure the flash is just as good as most cameras of this size and price-range.
Summary: After comparing the comparable Sony P50, I chose the Canon Elph because of size and quality of pictures. This little monster is unbelievable. Having owned an Elph 35mm that I purchased a couple of years ago, I knew the great value of small size and quality pictures. Never having owned a digital before, I wanted to do my homework. I compared the Sony to the Elph S110, and found the Elph takes clearer pictures, and is a breeze to upload to your computer.
Summary: I bought the Canon PowerShot S110 as a supplement to my Nikon SLR (big, film camera that takes great pictures). Instead, I seem to have displaced the Nikon forever. The Canon's small size allows me to take it where I would never take my SLR. Thus, the joy of capturing so much more on film makes this camera tops in my book. This is all due to the very small size of the camera, but the camera would not be a favorite if it were not for the high quality prints.
Summary: Currently, the two most popular pocket sized 2mp cameras are the S110 and the Nikon 775. I work at a camera store. Since these are the two cameras we sell the most of, I wanted to see for myself which one took better pictures. I tripod mounted each one and made the settings the same: auto white balance, high resolution JPEG possible, no flash, timer exposure (as to avoid camera shake).
Summary: First of all, I just want to say that this was I think the best buy I could have made, considering the options. When I first started looking into my next digital camera I went straight to the BAD reviews. My other option was the [similarly priced] Sony DSC-P50. Let's just say that compared to the competition, the Canon has practically NO real flaws. First of all, someone commented (about the Canon S110) that the USB connectivity is a big problem.
