The black Canon PowerShot ELPH 115 IS Digital Camera is a compact point-and-shoot camera featuring a 16.0 megapixel image sensor and DIGIC 4 image processor to produce high quality, well-detailed imagery. In addition to still imagery, these two technologies work together to enable clear 720p HD video recording that is accessible via a dedicated movie button. Improving the quality of both still and moving images, Smart AUTO is available and will intelligently select camera settings, based on 32 pre-defined shooting situations, to give you accurate exposures to best suit the scene in which you are photographing. To benefit shooting in low-light situations, Intelligent IS automatically recognizes six different shooting situations and will apply image stabilization techniques to optimally correct for the appearance of camera shake depending on the manner in which you are shooting. All of these imaging technologies are supported by the 8x optical zoom lens, which gives a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28-224mm, giving a wide-angle to telephoto range that is suitable for almost any type of subject matter.

    I am very impressed with the ELPH 115 IS camera. I've been a Canon fan for about ten years and have owned numerous point & shoot models ranging from the entry level A series to the advanced S and G series models. The only models that I've never tried were the ELPH pocket models.

    I consider myself an advanced armature photographer and my background is mostly outdoor landscape. My first trip with this camera was a weekend campout at the lake. I used the camera in conditions ranging from low light early morning/late evening to bright mid-day and was very pleased with the results overall. The camera actually far exceeded my expectations on some shots. I liked the camera enough that I immediately purchased another one for backup. It's just a great inexpensive pocket camera. Three specification details really stand out for me with this model... The old school CCD sensor, the moderate wide angle 28mm lens, and the moderate 8x zoom. I personally prefer the older CCD sensor over the new and more commonly used CMOS. CCD sensors handle contrasting light differently. I'm still on the fence with the CMOS. Regarding the 28mm lens... 28mm is a very user friendly wide angle that is less prone to heavily bending/warping vertical features on the outside of your frame. The 24mm lenses showing up on many newer Canon point & shoot models can really bite you if your not watching what your doing.

    Default "advanced" set-up tips... I use this model on 8.0 MP (perfect resolution for small sensor P&S cameras), super-fine compression, P mode (advanced auto mode), center weighted light metering, vivid color, auto white balance, ISO 100, and -1/3 exposure compensation (better base starting point then "0" for avoiding washed out over exposure).

    Note: The sample image attached to this review is straight out of the camera with the suggested settings noted above and has had zero post processing.

    Noisy images and poor in low light

    This camera only takes usable pictures outside on bright days. Any situation with low to medium light produces extremely grainy, noisy images with spots in them regardless of how you set the camera. ...Read complete review

    This camera only takes usable pictures outside on bright days. Any situation with low to medium light produces extremely grainy, noisy images with spots in them regardless of how you set the camera. Also, you must manually set the ISO below 400 in all situations or the image will be extremely noisy.

    I've used several inexpensive digital cameras and this one has the worst image quality I've ever seen, by far. I have an old 1.3MP that creates better images.

    I've included some cropped sample pictures that show the noise.

    Don't just take my word for it. Read some professional reviews. There's one on a site by "Steve" that shows sample images from this camera and they have the same "spots" or "specs" as mine. Search for "PowerShot ELPH 115 IS review" and you'll find it.

                                  upgraded from my canon powershot sd780. great pocket camera! i love the filters & effects. lots of easy-to-use options! soft shutter. my only two concerns are the av out port cover is flimsy & the materials don't seem as durable as my other canon. the 780 feels like it's made of metal whereas the 115 feels like plastic. it's lighter & a little larger than the 780 but am afraid it won't take a 'beating' (if dropped or rattling around in my pocket). distance zoom is much better than my old camera. lens doesn't retract as fast as the 780. display screen is great when looking straight on (subject gets lost/skewed when tilted).
