Focus, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, step zoom, exposure compensation, aspect ratio, i-Contrast, or white balance can be adjusted more quickly and conveniently with the PowerShot S110's control ring. Located at the base of the lens barrel, the ring is more intuitive than other types of controls for many experienced photographers. The functions that can be assigned to the control ring vary with shooting mode, and you can set your preferences quickly using the dedicated ring function selector button.
PowerShot cameras offer shooting modes that make it easy to take perfect photos in a wide range of shooting situations by providing intelligent presets with optimized settings.

This camera is pretty ridiculously awesome. Takes great night pictures and has lots of very good modes for image capture. Not sure about the video yet, but the images come out very vivid and crisp. The camera itself is very fast to respond, however it chews batteries pretty fast. Luckily there are cheap batteries you could buy here on Amazon and elsewhere, and they all charge super fast, so i'd recommend getting two or three more for image posterity. This camera has the coveted HDR feature, naturally though, the camera has to be very still for the series of images it takes, so i recommend a small tri-pod. It takes a couple seconds then to combine them, like any other camera on HDR function. Haven't had any lens issues, but if i do i'll certainly post here about it.. that was my only concern when buying this camera. A lot of people complained about the flash popping out where naturally a person holds their left index finger on the camera; hindrance at first, but with a little brain effort it isn't that difficult to simply not put your finger on the one tiny spot anymore. So far i love this camera. If something changes i'll complain to the messes here.

buy spare batteries!
This camera takes great pics and Raw mode was a prerequisite to me purchasing, as its the 2.0 aperture. I only have 2 complaints. I think the camera is way too complex and overloaded with features, like watching for a babies smile to snap a picture, etc. I think these features are ridiculous, although I'm sure somebody likes them. The booth drawback though is the very bad battery life, not to mention the price of spares. Besides these issues, it takes very nice photos in a very small footprint.

Like a point & shoot EOS
My search for the ultimate small backup camera is over. I normally shoot with a 5D mki III, and a 7D. My back-up or lcompact has been a G11 and/or a SX30 (both fine cameras in there class) However i have always wanted a "do all" camera that would truely fit into a shirt or pants pocket. Of course there are hundreds of cameras from all manufacturers that fit into that size catagory. All the ones that I have tried (and that is a lot between family and friends) have fallen fare sort with their image quality. Then enter the Canon S100. The image quality is equal to that of the G & SX series, and some entry level DSLR's.
Still it will fit in a shirt pocket. Soots RAW , JPEG, or both, has GPS, and very good low light capability for this class camera. Shutter lag, is always an issue with compacts, however is not bad at all with the S100 (flash off of course). It would be nice to have a little more zoom, but in a camera of this size it just would be practicle without a tripod.
