Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot SX110 is a 9 megapixel super-zoom camera with a 10X optical zoom lens and optical image stabilization. The camera is designed to be a less expensive alternative to Canonâ€™s high end SX10/SX1 ultra-zoom cameras. You wonâ€™t get the 20X zoom lenses, rotating LCDs and flash hotshoes of those cameras but what you WILL get on the PowerShot SX110 are full manual controls.
Pros: 10X zoom with optical image stabilization; lens is fairly fast, Large 3 inch LCD; visible both indoors and outdoors, Class leading battery life, Full manual controls; exposure, focus and flash, Fast picture-taking performance, Generally good image quality
Cons: Lens is not â€œwide-angleâ€� (36 mm isnâ€™t as wide as competition), Flash has a very weak range, Large-ish size compared to less bulky cameras with same/more zoom, Lacks the noticeable grip of its predecessor; plastic tripod mount
Excerpt: Physical Views The Powershot SX110 IS and a standard CD for size comparison Powershot SX110 IS Specifications Type of Camera Compact digital still camera with built-in flash, 10x Optical/4x Digital/40x Combined Zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer System Image Capture Device Type 9.0 Megapixel, 1/2.3 inch type Charge Coupled Device (CCD) Total Pixels Approx. 10.3 Megapixels Effective Pixels Approx.
Excerpt: Blame it on their portability. Blame it on their great price-to-performance ratios. Blame it on the fact that people like something that's a little bit different. Whatever the reasons, compact ultrazooms – cameras that offer long lens performance in a smaller body – are one of the hottest segments of the digital camera market at the moment.
Pros: Full manual controls that make sense, Solid, stylish build, Excellent display, Good speed/AF performance
Cons: Battery life could be better, Noisy shots, even at low ISOs, Too much sharpening, Video performance not so hot
Big zoom and advanced features on this 9-megapixel camera.

Summary: A fairly good big zoom advanced camera, the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS has a few image quality issues but its 10x zoom lens, 3in screen and manual controls make it an appealing all-purpose unit.
Pros: 10x optical zoom with stabilisation, sharp pictures, good colour balance, manual shooting modes
Cons: Some over-sharpening, a little graininess at lower ISOs, no multi-point focus modes
Summary: : The Canon Powershot SX100 IS was almost the perfect pocket camera - it had almost everything you might possibly want from a camera, and managed to just fit in your pocket! The SX110 IS improves on the SX100 with higher resolution, smaller less bulky body, new 3" screen, and better layout of controls, all for roughly the same price. Unfortunately the camera is still missing a wide angle lens, HD video, suffers from purple fringing, and high noise.
Pros: Excellent image quality - very sharp results (as long as you stick to the lower ISO settings), Good 10x optical zoom range, Optical image stabilisation helps with zoom and low light, Very good 3" screen,, Comfortable, compact, solid black body, Orientation sensor, Good battery life, Focus assist light, Excellent macro mode, Good value for money, Full manual controls, Generally Quick performance...
Cons: But slow flash recharge time, Higher than average chromatic aberations and purple fringing, More noise than I would like to see (albeit with excellent detail), Video mode could be better (it's not HD, and doesn't allow optical zoom), Some vignetting when using the full 10x optical zoom
Summary: Although the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS is certainly a good, inexpensive megazoom camera, some aspects of its design and performance don't live up to the standards attained by its predecessor, the SX100 IS, meaning we can't recommend it unreservedly.
Pros: First-rate photo quality, Full set of manual exposure controls
Cons: No optical zoom in movie-capture mode, Slippery body, Spotty performance
