Canon PowerShot S110 review – Our verdict

The canon PowerShot S110 has the same scores as the S100 in build/handling, dynamic range, AWB/colour, metering, autofocus and LCD/viewfinder, with one extra mark for its features and a deduction of two points in noise, resolution and sensitivity because of the improvements of other high-end compact cameras over the past year. Image quality is good without being class-leading, being superseded by the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100. The handling is excellent, though, and is even enhanced thanks to the reliable touchscreen. Wi-Fi makes image sharing easier, and hopefully next time remote shooting will be included.

Canon’s PowerShot S-series cameras may no longer be top of their class, but the S110 is a very capable camera that should find its way into the pocket of many photographers.
