      not so sure

      By mana

      from new jersey

      I agree with others that the flash is in an inconvenient spot and that the on/off button is small. My main complaint is that a lot of my pictures come out blurry. I can only think that this happens bc their is no viewfinder so there is nothing to keep the camera perfectly still. Lose a lot of pictures to this blurriness. Not happy about that.

      Best Uses

        I loved this camera. I used all the features. I probably convinced others to buy this camera because of the way I promoted it and believed in it. I traveled with it to Italy, Peru, Puerto Rico and all over the USA and took beautiful photographs. I am a former black and white film photographer who had a hard time switching to digital and had an even harder time switching from a slr to a point and shoot but this camera made me a believer in the capability of both. I had owned the canon powershot s110 camera for 1year and 3 months when it just stopped working (on my sister's wedding day ). I own about 12 cameras and this one was my "go to" for everyday life and travel. It took such wonderful shots for its size. The warranty ends at one year so I am just out of luck and so disappointed. The camera will not turn on, that's it. There was no trauma or damage, no scratches anywhere, it appears to be in mint condition. It just stopped working.

                  Best Uses

                    This review is from the perspective of a long time DSLR user. My regular camera is a DSLR with the battery grip and several lenses. I have been looking for an easily portable camera to carry when I don’t need or want the heavy gear. My goal was to reproduce the functions of the DSLR in a small package. This review looks at my five most important DSLR functions and explains how they are reproduced in the S110. Shooting in Camera Raw I always shoot my DSLR in RAW mode and custom crop and process every image. It sounds like a pain, but thanks to automated features in programs like Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, it isn’t a big deal and the results are worth it. If this is new for you, the difference between capturing a picture in JPEG and RAW is in the ability to further manipulate the images later. For example, assume you have set your camera to use: 1) Auto White Balance, 2) No Exposure Compensation, 3) Medium Sharpening, and 4) produce the image in JPEG format. The camera takes the picture, applies your settings and records it as a JPEG file. If you shoot the same picture in RAW with the same settings, the camera notes your settings and may apply them to the thumbnail that it shows you, but what you download from the camera is the data collected from the sensor without the settings applied. This is why pictures from a cheap point-and-shoot (P&S) camera may look better out of the camera than pictures from a DSLR or advanced P&S. But, the trouble comes when your JPEG settings don’t give you what you expected. Suppose you get the pictures on your computer and they have a green cast from the lighting, they are under-exposed and under-sharpened. If you shot them in JPEG, you may be out of luck without doing extensive fiddling. If you shot them in RAW, you use your processing software’s RAW converter and change the settings to what they should have been to give you the shot you wanted. Basically, you adjust RAW images on your computer like your camera produces JPEG images in the camera. The computer gives you more processing power, more sophisticated processing software, and the ability to change the settings until you get the image you want. Combine this with the fact that JPEG compression will hurt image quality and RAW images come out of the camera uncompressed and you can see why shooting in RAW mode is more work, but can provide a much better outcome. The primary reason for selecting any of the cameras in this class of advanced point-and-shoots is the ability to record images in RAW format. If you plan to leave the camera in JPEG mode, you can save yourself some money, get a good camera, and get very nice pictures by choosing a different camera that takes only JPEGs. Front Control Ring You can assign 8 preprogramed functions to the front ring. I use the control ring to change the lens zoom settings. The focal length changes in fixed steps of the standard prime lenses from 24mm to 120mm. I find the control ring works much faster than trying to frame with the zoom lever on the top of the camera. After using a range finder and SLR cameras for years, it is natural to have this control on the front of the camera and I love the ability to program it with the push of a button. I have been surprised by how this one feature simplifies shooting with the S110. Display Information I don’t know if I will ever get used to framing on the screen of a P&S. I prefer the “real� optical viewfinder of a SLR. But, none of the cameras in this class have an optical viewfinder, to get that feature you will pay another $100 and get a larger camera. The S110’s display gives me all of the information I get when using my DSLR and more. When framing the shot, I see the battery level, shooting mode (e.g. RAW), the exposures remaining on my SD card, the length of video I could shoot, the flash setting, horizontal level, exposure compensation, f-stop, and ISO. When I press the shutter button, the display clears at the top and then shows me the information on that shot along the bottom of the display: exposure meter mode, horizontal level, f stop (in aperture priority), exposure compensation, and ISO setting. Aperture Priority Mode Cameras in this class will allow you to choose Aperture, Shutter, and Manual mode in addition to a bazillion scene settings. Like my DSLR, I keep the S110 in aperture priority nearly all the time and use the back thumb wheel to change the aperture. If you have read the reviews for this camera and the others in this class you know that you lose a lot of aperture range as you extend the zoom. For example, the aperture range is f 2.0 to f 8.0 at 24mm and at 50mm the aperture range is f4 to f8. The relatively fast lens helps get good pictures in low light situations. The problem is that the relatively small sensor gives little control over the depth of field, again an issue with this class of cameras that is not unique to the S110. Exposure Compensation The camera’s meter is always a good place to start. But, I often find that I need to increase or decrease the exposure to accurately capture the mood of the scene. The exposure compensation process is simple with the S110; press the top of the rear control dial and rotate the dial to select the exposure increase or decrease. The display them previews the shot with the new setting. If you have read the other reviews, you know that it is a good idea to buy a second battery. I own at least two batteries for all my cameras, so I was not surprised or disappointed by the battery life. The S110 is not intended to replace your DSLR. But, Canon has taken the DSLR’s controls and wrapped them around a point and shoot sensor to give photographers a great small camera that they can carry virtually everywhere.

                    I took this on a mountain trekking trip, and it was pretty good. The whimpy zoom was more limiting than I had anticipated.
                    However it is great for taking family pictures and does fantastic in low light.

                      This camera takes great pics and Raw mode was a prerequisite to me purchasing, as its the 2.0 aperture. I only have 2 complaints. I think the camera is way too complex and overloaded with features, like watching for a babies smile to snap a picture, etc. I think these features are ridiculous, although I'm sure somebody likes them. The booth drawback though is the very bad battery life, not to mention the price of spares. Besides these issues, it takes very nice photos in a very small footprint.

                          My search for the ultimate small backup camera is over. I normally shoot with a 5D mki III, and a 7D. My back-up or lcompact has been a G11 and/or a SX30 (both fine cameras in there class) However i have always wanted a "do all" camera that would truely fit into a shirt or pants pocket. Of course there are hundreds of cameras from all manufacturers that fit into that size catagory. All the ones that I have tried (and that is a lot between family and friends) have fallen fare sort with their image quality. Then enter the Canon S100. The image quality is equal to that of the G & SX series, and some entry level DSLR's. Still it will fit in a shirt pocket. Soots RAW , JPEG, or both, has GPS, and very good low light capability for this class camera. Shutter lag, is always an issue with compacts, however is not bad at all with the S100 (flash off of course). It would be nice to have a little more zoom, but in a camera of this size it just would be practicle without a tripod.
