Looks like the ELPH 300 sports a wider angle lens (24mm) than the ELPH 100 (28mm) and a 5x zoom, vs. the 4x zoom on the ELPH 100. The back interface is also different. The 300 offers several more buttons, including one-touch video mode, and a 2.7" LCD screen. The 100 has fewer buttons and a 3" LCD screen. That 24mm lens sounds especially good to me. I also prefer more buttons vs. a larger screen, and obviously the 5x zoom is an advantage. I'm going to give the ELPH 300 a shot. EDIT: Also read that the 100 does not optically zoom during video, but I'm not sure of that. Worth checking out if it's important to you. I know the 300 supports optical zoom during video, which for me is important.

Canon s95 has the best image quality of all cameras mentioned above (CCD sensor). If you want better video mode than you have to go with CMOS sensor cameras (sx230, 300HS). The s95 and sx230 have full manual controls.

All I received with my camera was a CD. I would contact Canon and see if they have it online that you could print out.

Yes, on my approx 5 year old SD870 Elph. Black spot grew from pinprick to 1/3 of the screen over about 6 months. Doesn't show up on pictures, but makes it hard to see what's on the screen. Screen is losing pixels or something.

I have the same problem with this camera. Focus is soft and there are noticeable chromatic aberrations (aura you're talking about), there's also noticeable barrel effect (people look wider off-center). Honestly, optics is pretty bad on this camera. The focusing system also seems to be hit and miss but mostly miss. I set mine in manual mode with center focusing and even then the image is far from what I'm used to call "in focus". I'm surprised this camera is rated this high. My older Canon S410 takes consistently better images.

Buy a simple SD card reader (about $10.00) which allows you to use the Mac's USB port to transfer your pictures. No more silly cables...
