Canon PowerShot S110 Excels in Low Light Conditions

One of Canon's newest PowerShot cameras, the S110, may be a bit confusing to some photographers who've been using digital cameras for a decade or more.

If you believe you've owned a Canon S110 in the past, you may have, as Canon released a S110 ELPH model around 2001. The newest S110 model, though, has nothing to do with the camera from a decade ago.

The PowerShot S110 includes a 5X optical zoom lens, a 3.0-inch touch-screen LCD, 12.1 megapixels of resolution, and up to 1080p HD video.

The S110, which carries an MSRP of $399 (Compare Prices), is available in white or black camera bodies. The new S110 includes an ISO sensitivity up to 12800, which allows this model to have strong low-light results.

With so many possible names available, it's a little odd that Canon chose to give this new S110 a name similar to an older camera, but the S110's powerful features should clear up any confusion versus the older S110 ELPH, which had 2.1 megapixels of resolution, a 1.5-inch LCD, and a starting price of about $600 in 2001.

Quite a bit different from today's S110!

My very first digital camera was the original S110. Even with the low pixel resolution it made lovely photos. I accidentally broke it. I liked it so much, for a long time I tried to get it fixed
