  The Canon PowerShot ELPH 110 is a thin, light and compact basic point-and-shoot digital camera that takes good daylight snapshots. Although it uses Canon's HS (high sensitivity) exposure system designed to produce better images in low light, photos taken in less than optimum conditions might still look soft or grainy, The ELPH 110 can also shoot 1080p full-HD video.

This camera has a fairly large assortment of automatic modes (including 58 predefined shooting situations), but no full-manual override, so the camera makes all the setting choices. Its 5X zoom is less powerful than on some point-and-shoots, but the ultra-wide-angle zoom lens is good for group shots and landscapes. The ELPH 110 can take up to 5.5 frames per second, and up to 12 specific faces can be programmed into the Face ID feature, which sets the camera to get the best exposures of those specific faces, wherever they may be in a group shot.

What People Are Saying:

Critics are generally positive about the Canon PowerShot ELPH 110. It is on the 2012 recommended list at Consumer Reports and is listed as one of the Top 3 Cheap Digital Cameras at User reviews are primarily positive, with most calling it a fast, easy-to-use camera that takes relatively good quality pictures for everyday use.
  • CNET: "The good: Canon's PowerShot Elph 110 HS is small and lightweight with a bright, ultrawide-angle lens and lots of fun shooting options, and can produce some very nice photos and movie clips. The bad: The 110 HS has a relatively short battery life and mixed shooting performance, and low-light/high-ISO photos can look very soft. "
  • "The PowerShot Elph 110 HS is a good compact camera, but not a great one. Its lens is sharp, but Canon's decision to cram 16 megapixels onto a tiny sensor results in noisy images at higher ISO settings. The camera attempts to counteract this with noise reduction, but only serves to kill detail in photos at higher ISOs. "
  • "The Canon PowerShot 110 HS was obviously designed for casual users and snap-shooters. It's easy to use, compact and just about anybody can operate it after a brief scan of the quick-start guide."
