Summary: Purchased in February, 2009. Love the zoom, ease of use, flexibility, AA batteries and pic quality. Not happy with quality of Canon cameras these days. This had a problem with a spot on the pics that Canon repaired under warranty in March, 2010.
Summary: Bought this camera 2 years ago. It does take great pictures but if you're in the habit of carrying it around with you take a supply of batteries along with it. You can't let it set idle for more than a week. The batteries will run down just sitting in the camera.
Excerpt: Bought the camera for photos during a family reunion. Photos of reunion are mostly very good. Glad I bought the camera for most purposes. Especially like composition grid. I've been an amateur photographer since 1951. Problems: 1. Cannot force fill flash! Flash only works when it wants to!
Summary: Except for the latch on the battery compartment, we have been happy with the camera. My wife prefers the easy-to-hold size. She does not like tiny cameras. But we started having trouble with power on after changing batteries or switching SD cards.
Summary: Nice image quality outdoors. Zoom is nice. But for my purposes, the long waits between when the flash is ready is a showstopper. This makes it almost impossible to capture spontaneous moments. I generally respect Canon quality, but I'm afraid I'll be returning the SX110 IS to the store.
Summary: I purchased this camera late-December, after experimenting with it for a few weeks here is my take: The pros: - Interface is well done, very easy to understand, learn, and use. - The 10x optical zoom works great, very nice feature for a camera of this size.
Summary: This camera is very nice with its big LED screen, ease of use and image quality. However, it is a little heavy with its AA batteries. The batteries don't last long either- maybe for just an hour or two of total usage and the flash takes a considerable amount of time to recover for the next shot,...
Summary: I searched for along time for this kind of camera. (in the $200 range) I was drawn by the 10x zoom and Optical Image Stabilization(IS). (both work great and are very nice to have!) After using it for a few weeks, I have had mixed results.
Summary: After doing all the research, I just knew this was the camera for me. My main camera is a Canon Rebel and I was looking for a backup camera to use when I don't feel like carrying the big one around. When I read the specs and reviews for this one, I rushed out to get it. Problems: Focusing is iffy.
