The Canon Powershot S110 offers some nice updates over its predecessor, the S100, including better autofocus performance, wireless connectivity, and a touch screen.

-The Canon PowerShot S110 offers some nice updates over its predecessor, the S100. This includes better auto focus performance wireless connectivity and touchscreen. It retains the same general body of the S100 including a nice control ring, but it also does away with the small indented drip and the rubberized thumb wrist that made the model a little easier to hold than the S95. At least this one has got a nice matte finish that's not so slippery. It also has a touchscreen, which you can now use for operations like touch shutter and touch focus, but adjusting settings is a more highbred affair. For instance, you have to pull off the shooting options via the func. set button before you can select them via the screen. Overall, I still like the interface. The screen feels very responsive, and overall, I still like the interface, but it's clear not optimized for touch operation. The biggest new feature on the S110 is wireless connectivity. You can connect it to another camera, to a phone, to a computer, or upload to the web via WiFi access point. I'm not crazy about Canon's implementation, which requires that you setup an account with Canon image gateway in order to upload directly to Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube, which are the only services that are currently supported. You're better off connecting through your phone and saving the images there, then using your phone for those uploads rather than the Camera Window application. This model has a new sensor. It's the same resolution as the S100 and I found the image quality to be about the same. Good to excellent and bright light and okay up to about ISO800. Performances improved a bit most notably with regard to auto focus, which is very fast. However, it's still a little slow with image processing. For something who's looking for something a little better than point and shoot, with more manual features, and slightly better photo quality, but still owns the smallest camera possible, the S110 remains a good choice, but it's not substantially better than the its predecessors. So, if you can find them for less, the S100 and S95 are still good options as well. I'm Lori Grunin and this is the Canon PowerShot S110.
