On September 17 2012, Canon announced 3 new PowerShot digital cameras
- G15, S110, and SX50 HS. These 3 new models provide advanced features, greater focusing speed and multiple-shot speed. Both the G15 and S110 models include a newly designed 12.1 Megapixels High-Sensitivity CMOS image sensor.
The PowerShot S110 comes with built-in Wi-Fi feature allowing the camera to share images and video to social networking sites through the Canon iMAGE GATEWAY or to Wi-Fi enabled devices such as iOS or Android smartphones and tablets with the free download of the Canon CameraWindow app. It features a 24mm f/2.0 wide-angle lens with 5x optical zoom, ISO speed of 12800, 10fps High-Speed Burst HQ mode at full resolution, 1080p Full HD video, built-in stereo microphone, optical zoom while shooting, and convenient playback via HDMI output. The new PowerShot S110 digital camera is listed for $449.99. Here's the summary of review by PhotoReview Australia, giving the camera a rating of 8.5 out of 10:
"Despite the new sensor, we saw only modest changes to overall image quality in the new camera. Colours were, in the main, accurately recorded and even though shots taken in bright outdoor lighting often contained blown-out highlights, there was enough detail in shadows and saturation was well contained. Traditionally difficult-to-capture colours like bluish purples were handled capably. Subjectively, we judged autofocusing to be slightly faster that the S100's, particularly in movie mode. Metering was just as accurate as the S100's and image stabilisation was equally proficient. We noticed no improvements to the HDR mode, which was introduced in the S95. Tripod mounting is still required and subjects should be static to avoid blurring while the three shots that make up the image are recorded. Even in bright lighting, you can't be sure the images will combine precisely. Imatest showed JPEG resolution almost able to meet expectations for a 12-megapixel camera, while raw files processed with Digital Photo Professional just tipped the expectations boundary at low sensitivity settings. The graph below shows the results of our Imatest tests at different ISO settings for both JPEG and raw files.
The effects of image noise became visible in shots as slight softening from about ISO 800 on, due to automatic noise-reduction processing. Night exposures of one second showed noticeable softening by ISO 1600. Interestingly, available light exposures of 1/200 second or faster, showed much less softening than one-second exposures and shots taken with higher sensitivity levels were usable at small output sizes (maximum 15 x 10 cm), although by ISO 12800 noise had become evident. Flash exposures fared slightly better than available-light shots. However, in P mode the flash had insufficient power to provide correct exposures at the 26mm focal length (which has a maximum aperture of f/5.9) with ISO settings below 200. Exposure levels were well controlled at higher sensitivities, although images became softer from about ISO 1600 on. Lens performance was variable, with the highest resolution in our tests achieved at wider apertures around the middle of the zoom range. However, although the lens opens to f/2 at the 5.2mm focal length, the aperture at its highest resolution was a relatively slow f/3.5. And, with the minimum aperture of f/8 at all focal lengths, you quickly run out of aperture settings as focal length is increased."
Canon Powershot S110 Camera Reviews Roundup
|Digital Camera Review: "Most of what made the S100 the most popular "S" model to date has been retained by the S110. Like its predecessor, the S110 is built around a short (5X) relatively fast f2.0-f5.9/5.2mm-26.0mm (24mm-120mm - 35mm equivalent) zoom lens. Most P&S digicams offer zooms with maximum apertures of between f/2.8 and f3.5. The S110's f/2.0 maximum aperture lets in twice as much light as an f2.8..." - 23 hours ago More »||N/A|
|Imaging Resource: "With the PowerShot S110, Canon revisits the excellent and easily-recommended S100, tweaking the design to allow wireless photo sharing. It's the fourth iteration of a series that has always performed admirably, offering enthusiast-friendly features in a pocket-friendly body. Our time with the Canon S110 has left us feeling slightly conflicted, though -- perhaps because its predecessors have set the bar so high. On t..." - Apr 03 2013 More »||N/A|
|CNET UK: "In common with just about any compact you'd care to mention, the S110 shoots full high-definition video at 1,920x1,080. The maximum frame rate at that resolution is 24fps. If you want to push it further, you can reach 30fps at 1,280x720 and 640x480. It has two high speed options for shooting footage that plays back in smooth slow motion, providing for 120 and 240fps at 640x480 and 320x240 pixels respectively. I perf..." - Mar 05 2013 More »|
|Camera Labs: "Anyone who was worried that the successor to the S100 would sacrifice its diminutive dimensions to add more of the things that get enthuiasts excited, such as a hot shoe, accessory port, brighter, longer lens or a flip out LCD screen, can relax. The S110 is the same size and weight as its predecessor. Thankfully, Canon has resisted the temptation to compromise the one thing that defines the PowerShot S range and thi..." - Feb 05 2013 More »|
