Coming in an array of bold, eye-catching colors that'll be a sure fit for any personality, the sleek and stylish PowerShot ELPH 100 HS digital camera is what you need to add that creative edge. It's packed with powerful technologies (3.0-inch LCD screen, HS SYSTEM, Full 1080p HD video and more!) that make this memory-making tool a great value.

  • newegg Canon HS System Canon’s HS SYSTEM takes the frustration out of low light shooting, which delivers clear, blur-free shots with all the ambiance intact, and frees you from the sometimes unwanted effects of using the flash. The system is the result of two technologies brought together in a compact PowerShot. The first is the 12.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor, which positions the light-receiving surface for optimal light reception. The other one is Canon's advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor, which actively reduces noise and delivers high speed image processing.
  • newegg Wide-Angle 4x Optical Zoom lens with OIS and 3.0-inch PureColor LCD The PowerShot ELPH 100 HS digital camera has the tools you need to photograph every moment in crisp, clear Canon quality. From wide-angle to telephoto, the 28mm Wide-Angle 4x Optical Zoom Lens lets you capture more into every shot. The Optical Image Stabilizer will also help keep all your images steady. The big and bright 3.0-inch PureColor System LCD screen lets you see everything easily, so whether you're trying to frame a shot or just reviewing your images, Canon helps you get the best image every time.
  • newegg High-speed Shooting The PowerShot ELPH 100 HS digital camera is equipped with High-speed Burst Mode that can capture 8.2 frames per second, letting you catch the sequence of the action–a feature great for using at sport events! You can also add a fun slow motion effect to you videos with Super Slow Motion Movie. Super Slow Motion Movie will record your clips at a high speed so that when you watch your videos, they'll play back in slow motion–a feature also useful for analyzing a play-by-play of sports moves!
  • newegg Full 1080p HD Video The Canon PowerShot ELPH 100 HS is capable of recording stunning HD movie clips at up to 1980 x 1080 resolution at a push of a button and keeping videos steady with Dynamic IS. It connects directly to your HDTV via a built-in HDMI interface for full-screen high-definition enjoyment.
  • newegg Advanced Smart AUTO for Stills and Videos that Shine The PowerShot ELPH 100 HS digital camera takes the quality of your still images and videos to a whole new level - automatically. The camera's advanced Smart AUTO system detects a wealth of information about the scene you're shooting, then automatically selects the optimal settings for you. Now with an expanded range of 32 shooting scenarios, the camera handles a wide variety of situations, freeing you up to concentrate on composing your shot and capturing the moment you're looking for.
  • newegg Movie Digest Mode Putting together a video containing highlights from family vacations, important occasions and other special events is now easier than you might imagine. Using the Movie Digest Mode, you can have the camera automatically record a short video clip (up to approximately 4 seconds) every time you shoot a still image. The camera will then combine an entire day's worth of clips into a single video.

4 out of 5 eggsCute little camera that packs a real punch!

Pros: -CMOS sensor with great light sensitivity
-wide aperture
-high res 1080p movies
-very compact, about the size of a deck of cards

Cons: -no refocus during movies (only on the Elph 300 and above)
-f2.4 would have been nice (only on elph 300)
-no A/AV or S/TV modes
-limited (but sufficient) zoom
-feels like it would break if dropped
-AF isn't quite as good as iphone 4s

Other Thoughts: this was a huge upgrade over my Powershot A400. I'm not too concerned with A/AV or S/TV modes since you can control the aperture and shutter somewhat with scene modes. my main complaint is how it feels a little flimsy like it would break if dropped. (my old powershot A400 was built like a tank and is still running strong after 7 years, almost 10,000 photos, and dropped dozens of times)

Overall this is comparable to the Iphone 4s camera, each have their pros/cons, but I wouldn't buy this if you own a 4s.

For indoor shots I recommend shooting in P+Macro(flower) mode, or Portrait+Macro(flower) mode for most shots. Auto is okay but it's not nearly as good as the iphone 4s

5 out of 5 eggsVery Pleased Indeed

Pros: Very good focus. No more blurry out-of-focus pictures like with my old Kodak. Excellent performance indoors and in low-light settings. Paired with a Class 10 memory card purchased separately, ultra-fast automatic Windows-mediated download from camera to PC without having to use proprietary software. Pocket-sized. Large, easy-to-view 3" display. The plastic hatches are not so flimsy after all and, as on my old Kodak, they will probably last ten years or more. Very reasonable price with many features comparable to cameras in the $200 - $300 range.

Cons: For me, none!

PCMag complained about the low resolution LCD screen (230K vs. 430K in higher-end models) but so what, I saved a lot of money. They also ran some kind of program indicating the pictures weren't as good. Well, if you compare a $600, 20 megapixel camera vs. a $130, 12 megapixel camera, then the lower-end camera might come up short according to some computer algorithm, but in real life, on web pages and when viewing on an LCD monitor with average resolution, the Elph is just as good if not better for all practical purposes. Those extra megapixels are simply wasted and only important to a small audience with enormous monitors or to people who like to brag. For 99.99% of all users, the question is: Why pay more?

Other Thoughts: After the first week, I'm still pleased as punch with this highly portable, power-packed denizen of Middle Earth. It's amusing that the Elph is underrated by some reviewers. I say buy it now and spend the considerable amount of money you will save on a 16-gigabyte Class 10 memory card, a spare 1400 mAH battery and a small, cheap tripod.

5 out of 5 eggsFavorable Initial Impression

Pros: I'm happy with my purchase so far. This baby seems to shine in low-light conditions which is a common scenario indoors. Cameras have come a long way since 2004 when I last purchased a Kodak. I have not had time to compare the photos with my old camera, a Kodak Easyshare LS-743, but I'm thinking they will be much better. I can tell from the LCD that this camera performs much, much better in low light. And the flash is not on by default as it is with the Kodak LS-743. That's good. I had to manually turn flash off every time I took a pic with the Kodak.

The Canon Elph 100 HS is about the size of a wallet and could be easily mislaid if you're not careful. But it is a breeze to carry in your pocket. I prefer the silver trim myself. Some of the other colors look like toys.

The LCD screen is big and easy to view, and with a Class 10 memory card (*not included), it has a surprisingly fast response time. The price seems reasonable considering all these features. A lot of people paid $200.

Cons: No memory card included. So buy one. They are cheap these days. Don't settle for less than a Class 10.

The NB-4L battery is only 760 mAH, which seems a bit weak. I bought a generic replacement, waiting for it to arrive. Newegg doesn't seem to carry cheap third party NB-4L's. I don't know whether they are reliable yet though.

Canon's transfer software on the included CD is adequate. I don't plan to use Canon software, because I have an old version of ACDSee. It's not a big deal though. Canon's software is about comparable to Kodak's, except Kodak is more in your face about buying stuff from their online store.

The plastic hatches on the camera do appear flimsy, as other reviewers have noted. Let's hope they endure. It may be that looks are deceiving and they are stronger than they appear. Anyway if the hatches somehow break off, it would only be a cosmetic flaw. Just be careful and don't let little kids play with it. I think it will be okay.

Other Thoughts: To transfer images to computer, I recommend using the plain old Windows Image Acquisition wizard. Connect the camera, turn it on, and then in Win XP's Explorer, right-clicked on the Canon Elph, select Properties, then program to run (WIA) and click on the box "delete images after transfer" so they don't accumulate on camera. Canon should have the auto-delete option available and on by default in their software, but it's not such a big deal that I would deduct a star for it. I mean come on. But if you use the Canon software, you will have to delete pics or format the camera yourself, because it's not automatic.

BTW, Newegg should delete "reviews" that are nothing more than criticism of Newegg's product info page. That's not Canon's fault.

Also, I really wish all the colors would be grouped together. Is the pink Elph 100 HS really any different in function from the silver Elph 100 HS?

1 out of 5 eggsWeb Page Error

Pros: Camera works well and was recieved in good condition.

Cons: The web page states that a 4Gig card and carrying case are part of the deal, when I recieved the camera they were not incluced. Customer Service says the purchase was on 10/02 and the promotion deal starts on 10/03. That information is not on the web page. Not Cool

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Point & Shoot Camera

Pros: 1. Takes good pictures with minimal learning
2. Good build & finish quality (except the battery door)
3. Very compact & slim- will fit in a pocket easily
4. Auto setting works fine under a wide variety of light conditions

Cons: 1. Proprietary rechargeable battery-would have preferred AA's, limits the number of photos you can take if you are on a day long trip.
2. Battery door is flimsy, i mean real flimsy.
3. Noticeable lag between snaps.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a basic point & shoot that will get the "job done" with minimum hassle at a very attractive price point, hit the Buy button. There is not much to play around on this camera and increasing the ISO produces some real grainy pictures. But it has decent color reproduction, takes good pictures indoors and outdoors and has a usable flash. The large 3" display is very useful and clear but is not a touchscreen. But at this price that is not really a complaint.

If you are a serious photographer or think that you are or are fussy about your pictures to look "perfect" look at the Canon S-95 or the Panasonic DMC LX-5.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Camera! Best Value in its class...

Pros: Love the Camera! Love the 3inch screen. The HS system really is nice! Better than the older 2010 models in its class.
The shutter speed is much faster than my 2008 SD870 Elph which was a higher end model.
Haven't used the Video on this camera, but I hear its decent.

The Full Auto mode works great. The 32 programmed modes covers virtually every situation. It takes great clear photos that match the seen very well do to the more sensitive CMOS sensor so the flash isn't used as much and less grain is introduced. They have co,me a long way since 2008.

Cons: I have no complaints but a con for some may be:
No optical zoom while in Video mode. I don't really care though. Since I don't like to zoom much while doing video. Digital zoom work's if needed. If this is Important then go with the 300 model instead. But its costs $50 more

No SD card included, but I guess that's expected nowadays

Other Thoughts: I bought this at a big box store, but still the same camera.
