Trying to decide between this (Elph 110) and the S100, which is more expensive. I cannot really seem to tell why the S100 is more?

110HS:
- slower aperture (worse in low light) at the wide end, very slow (f/5.9) at the tele end
- noisier, smaller (1/2.3) sensor… see more
110HS:
- slower aperture (worse in low light) at the wide end, very slow (f/5.9) at the tele end
- noisier, smaller (1/2.3) sensor
- very basic controls, point and shoot only
- fixed aperture, meaning it is always f/2.7 at wide, and can only get darker when the ND filter flips into place. This means less creative control and less control in different lighting situations. Most ELPH series cameras have been like this and for point and shoot applications it generally works well enough.
- 16mp (but noisier, because each pixel is very very tiny. this is NOT a good thing.)
- comes in some really terrible color choices, plus black
S100:
- larger aperture at wide end (better in low light, more subject isolation), but the tele end is just as slow as 110HS...
- larger (1/1.7) sensor, less noise at higher ISO
- manual controls, lens control ring for manual control
- real adjusting aperture like most cameras
- 12mp (good resolution for this sensor size)
- black and silver only
If you need aperture control, you probably shouldn't be looking at a compact point & shoot. If you need some advanced control though, or need about a stop more light at the wide end and higher ISO capability, the S100 might be for you. It is quite a bit more expensive.
If you are just wanting to take photos, get the 110HS and you should be happy...if it goes on sale again that is. =) see less
