This review is from: Canon PowerShot ELPH 115 16MP Digital Camera (Silver) (OLD MODEL) (Electronics)
Here is an example of the video quality of this camera. It does really well with light, but not so well in darkness. If you want to make a video in a dark setting, it is a good idea to go out and get an LED flash light, or find a way to get some light on the subject. Both Amazon and Ebay sell the LED lighting camera accessory. Also, in order to remove the sound from the video, I ran it through Microsoft's movie maker. Movie Maker can edit videos in HD also, and it's free from Windows. However, that would only be the Windows 7 and 8 editions.

Is there a limit on how long you can record a movie? Or is it simply limited by the SD card you have?

When you say it doesn't do well in darkness... how dark exactly was it while filming your cat? Really, really dark?

I asume the video does have sound. I'm I right? What about the batteries. What kind of batteries does it use?

What's the lowest f stop rating on the lens (widest aperture setting)? The combination of that plus ignoring the zoom in favor of the widest-angle setting (28mm) should ensure the most light on a focused subject (the wide angle gives you superior depth-of-field) while using available light (no camera light of flashlight required). Also, does the manual (available on the Canon site) indicate if the camera has "burst setting"? If so, that's ideal for firirng off 8 shots per second, ensuring some good shots of moving kids and pets. Instead of, or in addition to burst mode, the "face detection feature," or "smart shutter" often works like a charm for fidgety children. instead of ordering them to smile, you simply tell them that you have a camera that refuses to shoot unless it sees a smile. It really works--like magic, from the kids' perspective. I'll even put it on a tripod and get in the picture (no self-timer required--only a smile, which you can bet won't be mine).

It uses a rechargable battery.
