Canon Powershot 110 Review

canon powershot

The Canon Powershot 110 is a 16 Megapixel compact camera with a 5x zoom range. This is a wider angle compact camera and one that is excellent for indoor photography as well as landscapes. It also has the ability to record full HD 1080p videos. The sleek and stylish design continues the Powershot trend of packing a huge number of features and excellent image quality into a small, compact package that can be conveniently carried anywhere at any time either with or without a case or bag.

Included in the Canon Powershot 110 Bundle are the following items:

■ Canon PowerShot ELPH 110 Digital Camera
■ 8 Gigabyte SDHC Memory Card
■ Memory Card Wallet
■ Carry Case
■ Lens Care Kit
■ LCD Screen Protectors
■ Mini Table Tripod
■ Free high quality prints

Fit with Canons latest DIGIC 5 image processor, the Canon Powershot 110 is packed with potential. The 16MP sensor allows plenty of detail to be captured, particularly in well lit environments. The battery, a rechargeable Li-ion, is rated to last for up to 170 shots. Canon has bundled some software with the camera as well, and this includes Zoombrowser and PhotoStitch.

Unique features of the Canon Powershot 110 include the excellent Experience Face ID which is able to recognize images of people and optimize them accordingly. The addition of Intelligent IS is welcomed as this helps to create clear shots free of blur in a wider variety of situations, particularly when the light is getting low or the zoom is extended completely.

Full HD video is a feature to be appreciated. Theres no need to carry a separate video camera around when you can film in full HD from such a small camera body, while easily being able to switch back to still shooting at any time.

For people who just want to get started, Canon has wisely created a Smart Auto mode where you can simply photograph any subject, virtually anywhere, and let the camera take care of all the settings and selections. It works well in most situations, with only the most challenging requiring your input. Despite the Smart Auto ability, the Canon Powershot 110 will also impress those who do want more control over shooting settings, with the array of menu options available to give you complete power over any situation where you are taking photos or shooting video. Switching to Smart Auto is just a matter of flicking the small switch at the top of the camera.

Weighing just 4.8 ounces and with a thickness of only 0.8 inches, this camera is one of the smallest on the market and although it does not have a large zoom capability, will suit people who wish to photograph family, events and outdoor landscapes. With a maximum resolution of 4,608 x 3,456 pixels, you can easily create large, vivid prints from your images. The only function that is not present is a HDR mode, although it is still possible to take multiple exposures of a high contrast scene and create a HDR image manually on your computer.

The ISO range is from 100 to 3200, with very usable images being experienced up to ISO 800, with softness being evident above that. However when resized for the web, using much higher ISO is possible as artefacts and softness can be masked somewhat by the resizing process.

Small enough to carry everywhere, using the Powershot 110 is fun and simple. Canons famous quality is immediately apparent the moment you pick up the camera, and this is carried through to the high image quality. Available in a number of stylish colours, its a camera you can match to your personality and style. This Canon Powershot 110 bundle provides everything the budding photographer needs to get out there and start taking high quality photos right away.
