Becky: Clearly, the SX260 HS is the superior camera. The ELPH lacks the ability to control both aperture and shutter speed, critical components when composing interesting shots, similar to a DSLR. Additionally, with it's (true) 20X Optical Zoom, the 20X rating is not dependent on combining both digital and optical zoom… see more Becky: Clearly, the SX260 HS is the superior camera. The ELPH lacks the ability to control both aperture and shutter speed, critical components when composing interesting shots, similar to a DSLR. Additionally, with it's (true) 20X Optical Zoom, the 20X rating is not dependent on combining both digital and optical zoom to earn that designation.
While both cameras are equipped with the CMOS sensor, the SX260 is a much faster camera, thus delivering sharper images. With the price difference being minimal between the two, investing in the SX260 would provide you with a technically advanced camera wherein you can switch between manual and customized settings to fully control your images. Hint: Google cnet.com to see Jeff Goldman's youtube review of both cameras. You will then see the difference. So far, I am very impressed with my new Canon SX260 HS.
I would be interested in hearing from you after you have seen the videos. Best of Luck....KND see less

Becky, you have asked the wrong person this question. I am not at all familiar with the ELPH 110.
I can tell you this much. The optical zoom is a feature I would never do without. The SX260 does exactly what we need...it takes great photos of the kids in track meets, tennis games, basketball, and choir concerts. … see more

I can tell you this much. The optical zoom is a feature I would never do without. The SX260 does exactly what we need...it takes great photos of the kids in track meets, tennis games, basketball, and choir concerts. All these are different, difficult lighting situations, and many events do not allow flash photos. I think any of the good cameras available today can take perfect snapshots. The difference is all in what you are going to be doing with it. If you think telephoto is going to be important...buy a camera with optical zoom and forget digital zoom.
Sorry, that is the best I can do with my answer. see less

The SX260 is the better choice and I agree with the answer that both Tribute ONE and Duane Sparks stated in their comments. The camera also takes great pictures in very low light as well. The 20x zoom is fantastic. Also when you press the button to take the shot it responds immediately. My older Panasonic had a second… see more The SX260 is the better choice and I agree with the answer that both Tribute ONE and Duane Sparks stated in their comments.
