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.

    This is my 3rd in the S series powershot cameras and is the perfect camera for travel, family and discreet photography. All my pro geR is Nikon, but the Canon S Powershot cameras are the best pocket cameras.

        We have had a s100 and we lost it and had to buy a new one. We were quite happy with it. But saying the truth, this S110 is really better.

            Comments about PowerShot S110 Digital Camera (Black):

            Bought this as a complement to my Canon Eos 650 and I'm stoked how good pictures it shoots. What I'm most impressed with is the way it captures pictures in low light conditions. It's fast, small enough to fit in your front pocket of your skinny jeans. Many have commented on the battery which I would say is moderate. Charged it up overnight and then had it 2 days with roughly 200 pictures taken before it went black.

            Comments about PowerShot S110 Digital Camera (Black):

            This camera is a great camera for being digital. It takes decent night shots with good quality. The ISO has a wide range--from 80 to12800! The ability to save exposures in RAW format is another reason it's great. I am currently testing the Image Stabilization by panning with moving subjects without a tripod. It works very well as of right now. Definitely a good buy!

                As good as the G-11 but fits in a pocket. Now, make one with a bright & large (even with a hump)electronic viewfinder for the same price. That would be a winner.

                I was looking for a Canon point and shoot that was small,fairly light and shoots in RAW for my adventures in the back country. This camera is great!! The sensor is larger than most for this price range, and the quality of pics were amazing. The only feature that I miss is the weather proofing.
