Cons It can scratch really easily<br>It also can be easy to lose becuase it's small
Recommended it? Yes

I really liked this camera. I use it for better pictures than my iphone can take. It's really good for general use and for those who aren't professional photographers. The screen is really clear and displays pictures really well as a display. It is very quick with the turning on and responses. The... Read full review »


a compact and good camera to take

bymario_alvarez Mar 6, 2013
3 Helpfuls 4 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros VERY compact in size. Great quality images.
Cons Flash needs to be improved upon.
Recommended it? Yes

I bought this camera for it's size. Indoors in a dim room you MUST be close to the subject. Also, if you want to turn the flash on (as opposed to "auto") you have to put the camera into "manual" mode and then turn it on. It's not hard to do but the three previous cameras I owned had a seperate... Read full review »

Pros Picture quality is amazing at normal size
Cons Pictures can be grainy once they are blown up
Recommended it? Yes

My parents got me this camera as a graduation gift a few years agp. As a free lance and photo journalist, I had spent years working with high-tech, company-owned cameras, so I wasn't too sure about owning a camera that wasn't worth a small fortune. However, I must admit that I have been impressed... Read full review »

The S100, so easy to use even and Old Pa.Dutchman can use it with ease.

It was a gift from our son and we love it. We are constantly amazed at the great pictures we can get with our S100. Yet we are not over whelmed with complex instructions or features you need to be a rocket scientist... Read full review »

Pros compact size, ease of use
Cons poor quality, useless after a couple years
Recommended it? No

I loved this camera when I first got it. It was portable, was easy to use, and took good pictures After 1.5 years with this camera, I have had nothing but problems. First, the camera started shutting off by itself. So you get the picture you wanted all ready and when you push the button to take the... Read full review »


First & favorite digital camera

bymizubara Jun 4, 2003
3 Helpfuls 4 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Size of cigarette pack. Crisp pictures. Many functions. Great first digital cam!
Cons Battery = Abnormal (special order); Must recharge often. Slower operation in cold weather.
Recommended it? Yes

When I saw commercials for the Elph, I knew that I had to buy one. They are so small, functional, and durable. (At least I've knocked mine around a few times, and it still works great).
Also, since it's such a small camera, I'm more likely to take it with me and take a lot of pictures, (it... Read full review »

Pros Small size
Cons Durability Battery Life
Recommended it? No

After paying $500 for it a little over two years ago, the camera no longer takes properly exposed daylight pictures. All are severely over-exposed no matter what automatic or manual settings are chosen. While they display properly on the camera's LCD when taking the shot, the stored pictures are...

Pros Re-chargable Battery, Size, Weight, Photo Preview, Quiet
Cons Performance in Cold Weather, Menu, Storage
Recommended it? Yes

My wife and purchased this camera in November of 2000 when we decided to build a new home. The main advantage of this camera was it's small size. We found that most "Show-Homes" in our area don't allow you to take photos. The Canon Digital Elf is small enough to hide in the palm of your hand,... Read full review »

I have been using this camera for a year and a half and have taken more than 2500 pics in different occasions.

Pros compact, durable, easy to use.
Cons slow, limited zoom, software

Overall, this is a fantastic buy. I've owned this camera since October of 2001 and have gotten a lot of use out of it.

The quality of the pictures it takes are good, even when you leave it in its default setting which takes the most number of pictures but gives you the lowest resolution... Read full review »

Pros One word describes this camera - TINY. This is, without a doubt the best feature.
Cons Battery & software management are not as good newer models
Recommended it? Yes

This is a great line, by Canon. However, if you can afford the S110 or S200 cameras, then I would definitely recommend going in that direction. The size CANNOT be beat, though. At only 2.1 mega pixels, it is pretty good. Turn off the LCD in order to (significantly) extend the battery life.

I bought this the S100 (aka Digital Elph) in January 2001 for my wife. She wanted an Elph camera - for it's small size and convenience - and I refused to go back to film (especially APS film). I have been using digital since 1997 when I bought my first Olympus in Hong Kong for $1400 :(

Pros Good DSC
Cons Awkward menus 8Mb memory a shame no leather carrying case bad memory indicator
Recommended it? Yes

Think about real world: who needs more than 2 mega pixels ?
Unless you're into printing your pictures (and you've got the printer for it), DSCs are about storing/viewing pics on a PC, and sending pictures thru the web, and 2 megapixels is about as good as it gets in today's world.

Pros Size and Weight, awesome clear screen,
Cons Pricey, the zoom is weaker than Gandhi

Alright, this camera is a little expensive, ranging from 300 bucks to about 500, but in the end it is definatly worth it. Its not the top of the line digital Canon Elph, there is one that takes miniature movies (30 seconds)which is pretty niche.

Cons Small, CF card too small, Some Plastic Parts, LCD washes out in bright light.
Recommended it? Yes

The Canon S100 is truly remarkable. So small it can fit into your pocket. But can you get a great photo from such a small camera? You bet you can! I was astounded when I printed my first picture. The quality was as good as any 35mm film camera. The S100 is so simply to use. Just point and shoot... Read full review »

Pros Compact traveling size.
Cons Unit-specific battery.

Few reviews and almost no manufacturer brochures explain the total traveling size and weight of digital cameras.

The PowerShot S100 is not only small in itself, but its battery charger is cordless and compact. This dramatically reduces the total carrying size. (My old cameras had bulky... Read full review »

I wanted a small, easy to use camera to replace the 35mm point-and-shoot I usually carry in my jacket while on ski trips. The S100 has some great features for skiing: 1) The size. Fits easily in an inside jacket pocket. 2) The movie option. Ok, the resolution is pretty poor and you can't zoom but... Read full review »
