I bought this camera to have with me at all times, mainly during work. I work in construction management and therefor I come around many situations where I need my visual reminders. For this I need good low-light performance. Building sites usually have a lot op dust in the air so flash is awfull. This camera has an excellent low-light performance. It's not like my Canon 5dII but great for a compact. Next to that pleasantly handy are the HDR features and touch screen (point at the auto focus subject on the screen). Wifi is nive but more like a gadget

I wanted a smaller camera that took good photos when I travel My big glass hurts my neck after a long day. The images are very good. I am particularly pleased at how I can take photos of old church books in less than perfect light when I do my family history research. The big screen and closeup ability are very good. However, there are two things that make me a little sorry that I bought the camera. I am sure Canon is proud of their touch screen. However I wish I could turn the touch capacity off when I want. Your finger frequently and inevitably will touch the screen changing the focus point and even other settings. I wear the camera in a leather case hanging from my neck. The fact that the camera is hitting my chest keeps the screen lit and changes the focus. This worsens the noticeably rapid battery discharge. You can set the camera to Auto to try to keep the focus correct, but then the camera only takes the lower resolution file, not the "super" less compacted one. Perhaps these shortcomings can be fixed with a firmware update. I owned an S100 that I gave to my son. I liked it better.

          I had the S95 and upgraded. I'm not disappointed. I love this camera and it does a phenomenal job for a point and shoot.

              The S110 takes very sharp true to color photos. I use it mainly for landscapes but works very well for portraits. 24 to 120 lens is very bright as well. And its built very solid. It is very user friendly. I love the manual control ring to chose ISO speed.

              I can't think of anything negative. And the price break was incredible.

                    I'm using this only for happy snaps. I like that I can hand this to someone to get a photo of me without intimidating them with an SLR. The S110 is a lightweight pocket camera with good resolution and image quality for snapshots. It is easy to focus on the touchscreen and transitions nicely in video.

                    This camera responds well and is a great substitute for my DSLR when I wish to carry something light instead. It's well built (feels sturdier than previous PowerShots) and the feel is terrific. The image quality is very good in most light conditions. However, I don't use the flash often since it's range is a little short and it does leave everyone a bit too white when used.I'm still learning how to use its different settings. But, so far, so good! The menu and navigation are intuitive and the touch screen responds well. In short, very pleased and highly recommended, especially if you want to point and shoot.

                    I own a canon G15 an absolutely love everything about it...except for the size. I work as a backcountry guide and over the past few years have missed some exceptional shots due to the fact that I was traveling light and could not easily put the G15 in a pocket. When I saw this camera was on sale I bought it-wish I could disable the touch screen though. The picture quality is pretty much identical to what I got out of the G15 so I'm happy!

                              Excellent value for the price. Best pocket size P&S and has many advanced features. Careful about the pop up flash - we had S95 and the flash got stuck after a while.

                                I bought this camera to take high quality landscapes when I didn't feel like changing my DSLR lens. I also bought it for digi-scoping and digi-binning. So far it has performed far beyond my expectations and feels solid enough to withstand field conditions!

                                Picked this up before going on a trip, and it packs a punch. Fits in my pocket, has Manual settings for when I wanted to get fancy, a lot of cool settings. Overall, very satisfied with this purchase. It was perfect for my trip.

                                    I bought two cameras as gifts, the online experience was great and the cameras arrived 2 days later, as promised.

                                    Overall great experience.

                                        I bought this camera for my wife. I have the s95 as a small camera to take with me for work. The S series are great advanced cameras offering full manual control for those of us familiar with DSLRs. She really likes the face recognition, touch screen and smarter AF of this version compared to my S95.
