The new Canon PowerShot S110 is an understated and rather elegant little P&S digital camera that offers a lot of professional features. The S110 (like its “S” series predecessors) was designed for serious photographers looking for a pocketable compact camera with lots of creative capability. I’ve owned several small cameras over the years, but nothing like this tiny workhorse digicam – the snazzy little Canon S110 packs more features and functions into it’s sturdy metal-alloy body than most DSLRs provide. It has a high-sensitivity 12 megapixel CMOS sensor, a very good 5x zoom lens with a fast f2.0 maximum aperture, a 3.0 inch touchscreen LCD monitor, built-in wi-fi connectivity, GPS functionality, 1080p HD movies, auto mode ease of use, the full range of manual exposure shooting modes, and RAW format support. In fact, pretty much the only thing the S110 can’t do is switch lenses. The Canon S110 is currently priced at $349.
