I bought the Canon PowerShot ELPH 110 HS because I was looking for a camera with full HD video as well as a decent overall picture camera. My other option was to use my phone, but I have a lot of scratches already from dropping it everywhere I go. I also wanted something that I could travel with and not carry it around in a case or bag.
My budget was around $150 and I was looking to get around 16 Mega Pixels.
Price: $144.95 from Adorama Camera (through Amazon)

1) Picture Quality – Pictures are nice and large [insert dimensions] and are really clear. See examples below.
2) Video/Audio Quality – The full HD (1080p) and stereo microphone perform exceptionally well for a point-and-shoot camera. It is very popular with many YouTube Partners. See examples below.
3) Size – It is small enough to easily fit in your pocket with other things.
1) Zoom Noise – This camera is loud when zooming in. It is picked up in the video recording which is definitely a bad thing.
Overall, the Canon PowerShot ELPH 110 HS is a great all-around point-and-shoot camera. The price is good and the quality is great. I used this for some graduation photos and it didn’t disappoint at all. The outdoor pictures were especially good.
This is also great if you are looking for a camera to shoot videos with. The quality is pretty good and can capture great moments like sporting events or concerts. The size makes it really portable too. This makes a great camera for YouTube videos as well!
