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 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!
