Canon ELPH 100 HS Digital Camera Review

The 100 HS lacks some of its siblings' hot-ticket extra features, but it's a great camera for the money.

$159.99 at Amazon


The Canon PowerShot ELPH 100 HS (IXUS 115 HS in some territories) is the entry-level model in Canon's 2011 ELPH lineup. It's also the market's most affordable camera built around a CMOS sensor, which means that it's fast, and it can shoot great pictures in most settings. So, while the 100 HS lacks some of its pricier siblings' hot-ticket extra features, it's one heck of a camera, especially for the money.

The 100 HS launched in February 2011 in silver, gray, orange, blue, and pink shades for an MSRP of $199, though street prices have fallen since then.
