Canon PowerShot S110 review – Introduction

Alongside the PowerShot G15, the Canon PowerShot S110 sits at the top of Canon’s compact camera range. The G15 is the larger of the two, with numerous external controls, a viewfinder and hotshoe.

Despite its simpler design, the Canon Powershot S110 is packed with features and the sort of control expected from much larger cameras, namely raw capture and fully manual exposure control. It replaces the PowerShot S100 – which was reviewed in AP 3 December 2011 and scored 86% – as a modest but welcome refresh and here we highlight its key aspects and new features.
