Canon PowerShot ELPH 100 HS 12 MP CMOS

Canon PowerShot ELPH 100 HS with 12.1 Megapixel CMOS and DIGIC 4 Image Processor to increase shooting in low light situations without the need for flash and decrease the level of noise at higher ISO settings.

Canon PowerShot ELPH 100 HS taking out frustrations low light shooting. This system provides crystal clear picture and blur-free images with all the atmosphere intact, and frees you from the unwanted effect sometimes using the flash.

Beautiful low light shot possible at both low and high ISO speeds, and dynamic range extended to maintain maximum detail in the highlights and shadows.

This system is the result of two technologies brought together in the PowerShot compact.

The first is a 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor, the position of the light receiving surface for optimal light reception. More light means more clear, blur-free images with much detail and nuance, even in dark areas. Working closely with the CMOS sensor to deliver sophisticated HS SYSTEM Canon DIGIC 4 Image Processor, which actively reduces noise and provides high image processing speed.

- Good looking and small

- Nice large 3.0 inch LCD screen

- Very good photo quality! When using this camera, I suggest you keep in auto mode. Its a really good auto mode unlike other auto modes on other digital cameras. You will always get a sharp shot with less grain. The HS system really helps.

- Very good 1080p for a small camera.

- Cool shooting features. Toy camera, Poster effect etc


- On Amazon its states that the camera can "optically zoom while shooting video". Not true. Its digital zoom which was a HUGE disappointment for me. If you like zooming a lot, I wouldn't recommend this camera. If you like zooming in optically during video, check out the Elph 300 and Elph 500 HS.

- NO autofocus during MOVIE mode. This was another HUGE disappointment for me. I do a lot of close up shots during video and I can't do that. I called Canon and asked them if the camera autofocus's and they said yes it does. They told me to reset the camera and I did and still no autofocusing. I honestly think the camera doesn't autofocus at all during video. You can set it to macro mode, but I personally like autofocusing better. If you like autofocusing during video, check out the Elph 300 and Elph 500 HS


I do like this camera a lot. It takes great still images and has some cool features. BUT I REALLY REALLY like zooming in optically and having autofocus during video. So I think I may return it to the store and buy the other Elph 300 HS or some other camera. I don't know :(. If you don't mind not having autofocusing during video and have digital zoom during video then this camera is just for you.
