Canon ELPH 100 HS (IXUS 115 HS) Reviews

PhotographyBlog reviews the Canon ELPH 100 HS (IXUS 115 HS) and writes;
“Whilst it’s not in any way a game change or particularly innovative, if you’re looking for a simple to use point and shoot camera that takes better than expected pictures, you can’t really go wrong with the Canon IXUS 115 HS.”
Rating: ★★★★½

CNET reviews the Canon ELPH 100 HS (IXUS 115 HS) and writes;
“The camera also has a high-speed burst mode that can shoot 3-megapixel photos at up to 8.2fps. The results are very good compared with similar modes on other cameras I’ve tested, suitable for small prints and definitely for Web use.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Cameralabs reviews the Canon ELPH 100 HS (IXUS 115 HS) and writes;
“For an entry level model, the ELPH 100 HS / IXUS 115 HS has a huge amount to offer. Not to be underestimated is that it’s an ELPH / IXUS, so it’s well built, looks stunning and is super-compact. Its 4x zoom range is nothing more than adequate, but if you don’t go in for panoramic landscapes or wildlife photography, that will be no loss and 4x is good enough to help frame the vast majority of ‘everyday’ shots.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Digitalcamerainfo reviews the Canon ELPH 100 HS (IXUS 115 HS) and writes;
“The 100 HS takes arguably the best photos of any sub-$200 camera on the market. It can capture decent shots even in challenging settings, and in ideal conditions—outdoors on a bright, sunny day—its images are bright and clear with true-to-life colors.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCMAG reviews the Canon ELPH 100 HS (IXUS 115 HS) and writes;
“The 100 HS kept noise under the 1.5 percent threshold all the way up to ISO 1600, which means it will take clear photos, without a flash, even in poor lighting conditions.”
Rating: ★★★½☆ reviews the Canon ELPH 100 HS (IXUS 115 HS) and writes;
“For the most part, the Canon ELPH 100 offers very good image quality, especially for a camera with a $199.99 MSRP. In outdoor photos, the Canon ELPH 100 has accurate colors and good exposure.”

Canon ELPH 100 HS (IXUS 115 HS) User Reviews

Very Nice Camera
“Very good photo quality! When using this camera, I suggest you keep in auto mode. Its a really good auto mode unlike other auto modes on other digital cameras. You will always get a sharp shot with less grain. The HS system really helps. Very good 1080p for a small camera.” – By Logic227
Rating: ★★★★☆

Everything I wanted and more
“This camera is exactly what I was looking for. I had previously had an older model (by a year or two) and was pleased with it, and hoped that nothing significant was changed that would decrease the quality. Well I was really pleased when this came in the mail. The new features of Super Slow Motion, and Recording in full 1080p are absolutely incredible.” – By supersonicsixteen

Canon ELPH 100 HS – good everyday camera
“The ELPH has several combinations of photo quality/resolution, and allows you to select between four movie quality settings; two are widescreen HD, and two are stand aspect ratio video. The various ALL ELSE modes that apply to still photos can also be applied to movies.. The pictures are very good, and you can make them even better by going into manual mode(s). At the price range of the ELPH 100, the photo quality is at least competitive with other brands and models.” – By P. Schmidt
Rating: ★★★★☆

Found a keeper
“Pictures always turn out amazing! Our house kinda has crappy lighting and its a major problem with pictures, this camera takes the best pictures by far! (not super grainy looking like others) I also wanted to camera that shoots video. I dont use it to shoot professional quality video but Im impressed!” – By Sawyern

Canon ELPH 100 HS — U R going to luv it
“The Canon’s Digic 4 processor & CMOS sensor make this camera truly point and shoot. By default it automatically selects the light level, shaking, target focus, shutter speed, flash/noflash and ISO to pick the optimal scene type. Perfect pictures virtually every time when button is correctly pressed 1/2 way (1) before fully in (2) for photo shot. ” – By george bancks
Rating: ★★★★★

The best pocket-sized Canon yet
“it does give up on any reasonable manual control, things like setting shutter speed, lens aperture, ISO. What access you do have to that level of control is buried deep inside menus. It took Canon a while to realize that for most of us, if we wanted to fool with that kind of thing on a regular basis, we would be using a different camera. This camera is designed to leverage convenience over extreme control or nth degree quality.” – By Bob Tobias

Canon ELPH 100 HS (IXUS 115 HS) Features

Experience the Power.

Canon’s HS SYSTEM with a 12.1 Megapixel CMOS and DIGIC 4 Image Processor improves shooting in low-light situations without the need for a flash and lowers noise levels at higher ISO settings.

The Canon HS SYSTEM takes the frustration out of low light shooting. The system delivers clear, blur-free shots with all the ambiance intact, and frees you from the sometimes unwanted effects of using the flash. Beautiful low light shots are possible at both low and high ISO speeds, and the dynamic range is expanded to retain maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas.

The system is the result of two technologies brought together in a compact PowerShot. The first is the 12.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor, which positions the light-receiving surface for optimal light reception. More light means clearer, blur-free images with plenty of detail and nuance, even in dark areas. Working together with the CMOS sensor to deliver the HS SYSTEM is Canon’s advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor, which actively reduces noise and delivers high speed image processing.
