Introduction | Canon Powershot S110 sensor performance | Canon Powershot S110 versus competition | Conclusion

Canon’s Powershot S110 in an update on its previous Powershot S100, there are some improvements in the styling and user interface and an increase in the maximum ISO, which should be welcome for users working in low light.  However the DxO Mark overall score fails to live up to its predecessor, so are the changes purely cosmetic?

Features:

The Canon Powershot S110 is a the latest in Canon’s mid level compact range incorporating a 12.1Mpix CMOS sensor working with their DIGIC 5 processor.  The camera is equipped with wi-fi, enabling communication with other Canon cameras, computers or a mobile phone and the flagging of images with GPS data.  With full HD movies and image stabilisation as part of the package, the camera stands up well against the likes of the Nikon Coolpix P7100 and others in its class.
