Canon HS SYSTEM
The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you take bright, clear photos in an even wider range of shooting situations. Beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies brought together in PowerShot cameras: a high-sensitivity imaging sensor, which is able to capture more light; and the DIGIC Image Processor, which actively reduces noise with high-speed image processing. The 16.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor in the PowerShot ELPH 110 HS digital camera incorporates advanced light reception technology that enhances sensitivity. The DIGIC 5 Image Processor provides a major boost in noise reduction, expanding the usable ISO range to an amazing high of ISO 3200. The Canon HS SYSTEM takes the frustration out of low-light shooting, delivering clear, blur-free images.
Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor The latest-generation Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor brings phenomenal increases in processing speed and power. Improved chip architecture and algorithms deliver greatly expanded functionality with further refinement in image quality. Improved noise reduction produces clearer images when shooting in low light at high ISO speeds. Enhanced i-Contrast performance adjusts differences between light and dark areas to achieve even more natural-looking results. The faster processing speed also results in faster continuous shooting capability while maintaining full image quality. The DIGIC 5 Image Processor also makes possible a new, highly advanced automatic white balance system. Whereas conventional white balance makes an overall adjustment based on a single type of light source, the new Canon Multi-Area White Balance analyzes several areas of the image to determine whether different adjustments are needed, for example, for the main subject and the background.
All functions working except the photos come out with overly dark backgrounds.They look fine when taken.

Should be easy
Somehow although I think I'm hitting the same sequence I always end up where I don't want to be. I just want to see my photo or erase it but I'm in movie mode and I can't get out! Ten minutes later I just turn it off and put it away until I have more time to futz.
Also, I can't seem to get a photo of my black cat; he's always just a black spot in the center of the hardwood floor. That's with auto settings, daylight or night, with and without the flash (which seems to go off at odd times such as yesterday in bright sunlight).

First digital camera I owned received as a Christmas gift from my wife love the quality of pictures it takes and the SMART feature is awesome but the controls are tough to understand and pics in light aren't great even with flash not much help but overall I would recommend to a friend or family member

Worst canon model I had (of 5)
I'm a diehard Canon fan, but very disappointed in this model. I like the capabilities and the quality for daylight images. The biggest downside is dust (in the air) reflection in flash images very often, due, I suspect, to the lens being too close to the flash for the wide angle setting. Red eye reduction also seems largely ineffective and flash range is poor (compared to SD900 Elph). Features are plentiful, but correspondingly hard to get to as you have to scroll to get to them - no quick access to common ones (except full auto), so by the time you get the setting you need to make a good shot, whatever you're shooting has been gone a long time. Anyway, I love all 4 of my other Canon digital cameras so I'll probably buy Canon again, but I'll do a much more thorough test in the store first.
