2012 Best Value Point-and-Shoot Camera

$249.99 MSRP

Introduction

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 110 HS is a cheap, truly tiny compact camera that occupies the bottom rung of the company's consumer-oriented ELPH line. An evolutionary upgrade over last year's 100 HS, it boasts a higher-resolution 16.1-megapixel CMOS sensor, a sharper 460k-dot rear LCD, and a broader sensitivity range that climbs as high as ISO 3200. The body has been subtly redesigned, but Canon's reliably user-friendly control scheme is essentially unchanged, as is the dead-simple on-screen user interface. Manual controls are still MIA, but that's not necessarily a negative in a category that caters to casual users.

The ELPH 110 HS is available from most major retailers in black, blue, green, pink, red, and silver colors. It debuted at an MSRP of $249.99, but it's currently being sold at $179.00 by reputable internet retailers.
