TOTAL USER RATINGS: 16
PROS: Size & portability; battery life; SD card
CONS: slow Shutter speed, so-so image quality, poor quality metal casing
PROS: This is my first digital camera, and I've had it for about three weeks. I had been considering the SD100, and when this update came out, I decided to take the plunge. I wanted a small form factor, a solid quality look and feel, and the SD media since I have a Palm handheld that uses the same size cards. The Canon provides all that. I also considered the Pentax Optio S and was leaning toward that model for the 3X zoom (as opposed to the Canon's 2X), but all the reviews seemed to agree that the Canon coonsistently takes better photos. I have not been disappointed. The Canon is small, elegant and easy to use. The software is capable of compensating for any weaknesses - especially when I take photos in conditions where lighting makes it impossible to get an outstanding result right from the camera. There are a number of features (e.g., movies clips with sound, some manual exposure control) that I have yet to try. Although I was able to begin taking fine pictures without reading the manual, I can see room for growth and more creativity as I learn more about its capabilities.
CONS: Nothing major that I can discern. A 3X zoom would be nicer, but there's also digital zoom to help enlarge photos. The wall charger, which charges the battery outside the camera, is very compact and convenient; however, it would be nice to be able to recharge it inside the camera also, and from a car's power outlet (e.g., when on a road trip to keep it topped off between stops). To compensate for this, I'm sure I will eventually spring for an extra battery and keep it charged and ready.
PROS: Excellent all round. Great camera for beginners. Lots of room for creativity in manual mode. Pictures are very sharp and camera focuses extremely well in the ****. 3.2 Mega pixels more than enough for regular photography. If you want to blow up your picture extremely massive then go with more resolution. Camera is small and durable. Definately get a second battery. Comes in handy, especially if you shoot alot of video. Audio/Video quality is extremely good for a still motion camera.
CONS: LCD Screen is great but doesn't do pictures justice. They look much better once you get them on your computer so don't fret! I think Canon has a winner here but as per other comments a larger analog zoom lens would be appreciated.
PROS: Not the cheapest 3MP camera around, but for the size, it's sweet! It does everything you need, and produces perfectly exposed, great colored photos with no fuss. AND it's not noisy - the more pixels they pack into the same size chip, the less light gets to them & the noisier they are. I actually down-graded from a 5MP to this, and am MUCH happier, now.
CONS: No RAW mode
PROS: The PowerShot is very easy to control and use. It also has a picture perfect imaging source that really enhances the pictures and no pixelation what so ever. Most especially that I bought it for my mother last christmas and she seems to be enjoying it more than her video camera. It has a long lasting battery life as well as the extra pack for her adventures and sight seeing events.

CONS: Even though my mom and I love the powershot, 1 improvement would be size, if they can only make it a bit smaller that would be perfect
PROS: The best thing about the camera is the quality of pictures you get for its size. You can put it in your pocket (or purse) and you won't miss those moments where you would otherwise say "I wish I had a camera!!" Bigger cameras just make you want to leave them at home unless you are taking it specifically to take photographs. It is super easy to use and has plenty of options for the photographer that doesn't fancy himself to be Ansel Adams. If you want to capture life's fleeting moments, this camera is for you.
CONS: The size forces obvious limitations on features that serious photographers would probably want. The flash does overbrighten sometimes, but not often enough to make it annoying.
PROS: Very compact, pocket size, good quality pictures, fast turn on time.
CONS: Small screen, 2x zoom (but u get what u pay for, I bought it for $207 from refurbdepot.com so its a steal)
PROS: This was my first digital camera! and i was so excited when i first got it. i bought it myself and it was only $199.99! isn't that a great price? i think it is... for such a great camera. and i think it's perfect for me becuase i'm a beginner and it's so fun and easy to use! i am only a 14 year old girl, but just becuase i'm young... doesn't mean that i don't know good quality when i see it. n truely am thrilled to own this canon powershot sd110!!! n it's the cutest size! it's easy for me to carry around whenever i'm on the go (which i always am)! :) the pictures come out very beautiful... but a pictures quality also depends on if you know how or don't know how to take nice pictures. but i take great pictures! hehe lol! so yea... and well i could go on.. but i think you're getting my drift. hehe! i LOVE my new camera!!!:D
CONS: i haven't really found anything i dislike about my camera... buh i'm pretty sure i luv the whole package! o! well i only wich the battery lasted longer... or maybe i should find a better battery.
PROS: excellent image quality. I can play videos i recorded with the camera in full screen mode on my 15" moniter, and everything still is pristine and crystal clear. It has an excellent sensor, great color matching, and is light, sleek, and compact
CONS: it's pricy (but that's because its features are of an oustandingly high quality). the one problem I have encountered occurred once when the viewfinder showed purple fringing around a light at night. But the fringing didn't show up in the picture anyways. Oh, also, the SD Card it comes with is way way way too small. You will have to buy at least a 128MB SD card, which go for around $40
PROS: I have been using this great little camera with students age 7-11. It is simple to use & has clear function buttons. Staff also find it easy to take on class trips!
CONS: If higher optical zoom is required, go with a higher-resolution Canon.
