About Canon

Sleek and stylish PowerShot ELPH 100 HS (4927B001) digital camera is packed with powerful technologies like 3.0-inch LCD screen, HS SYSTEM, Full 1080p HD video and more that make this memory-making tool a great value.

Canon Features

  • The Canon HS system delivers clear, blur-free shots with all the ambiance intact and frees you from the sometimes unwanted effects of using the flash. The system is the result of two technologies brought together in a compact PowerShot
  • The first is the 12.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor, which positions the light-receiving surface for optimal light reception. More light means clearer, blur-free images with plenty of detail and nuance, even in dark areas
  • Working together with the CMOS sensor to deliver the HS system is Canon's advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor, which actively reduces noise and delivers high speed image processing
  • Experiencing the brilliance of Full 1080p HD video in a Canon PowerShot ELPH digital camera. You'll be able to record everyday moments in amazing life-like realism at a push of a button and you won't have to worry about shaky footage because Dynamic IS will help keep your videos steady
  • The PowerShot ELPH 100 HS digital camera is equipped with High-speed Burst Mode that can capture 8.2 frames per second, letting you catch the sequence of the action-a feature great for using at sport events
  • The PowerShot ELPH 100 HS digital camera takes the quality of your still images and videos to a whole new level - automatically. The camera's advanced Smart Auto system detects a wealth of information about the scene you're shooting, then automatically selects the optimal settings for you
  • Now with an expanded range of 32 shooting scenarios, the camera handles a wide variety of situations, freeing you up to concentrate on composing your shot and capturing the moment you're looking for
  • From wide-angle to telephoto, the 28mm Wide-Angle 4x Optical Zoom Lens lets you capture more into every shot. The Optical Image Stabilizer will also help keep all your images steady
  • The big and bright 3.0-inch PureColor System LCD screen lets you see everything easily, so whether you're trying to frame a shot or just reviewing your images, Canon helps you get the best image every time
  • Using the Movie Digest Mode, you can have the camera automatically record a short video clip (up to approximately 4 seconds) every time you shoot a still image. The camera will then combine an entire day's worth of clips into a single video
  • Add some vintage nostalgia with Toy Camera Effect. Toy Camera Effect recreates this look by darkening the edges to make them appear is if they were photographed through a pinhole lens and adding contrast
  • Monochrome lets you sway away from the usual black & white combination. Now you can choose from three single-toned effects: Black & White, Sepia or Blue to really give your photos the effect you're looking for

Great camera

This has been a great replacement camera

Lens Refuses To Work


Less than a year after purchasing, the camera won't even start up, lens refuses to open up. I've had this issue with previous Canons, and thought it was something I was doing wrong, but this one doesn't even try. Really disappointed with this purchase. When it worked, the camera was great, and the video it takes is very good. If you buy it, hopefully yours will still work after the 90 day warranty is up.


Love It


Love the camera and I highly recommend it Great camera.


Nice camera for the price


This is a compact, easily carried camera that works as well as larger, more complex units. Easy to use and understand, the camera does action shots particularly well ~ we raise Labrador Retrievers and like taking both stills and videos of them in action. This camera does not disappoint in either use. I would definitely recommend it to others looking for a small, easy to carry and use unit.


Little camera, great image qaulity


For a low cost, basic P&S camera, this camera does what it is supposed to do.

Fastest High Speed Burst I Have Ever Seen


Very Good Camera all except time it takes to reload flash, even still it is a VERY GREAT camera. Extremely Fast High Speed Burst When you have got a class 10 memory card about 8 photos per second. :-)


Great Second Camera


I bought this camera as a 2nd camera to keep in my car or shirt pocket. I have a very good DSLR but cannot always have it handy. Camera is very versital and takes good quality pics. Also has good battery life. I have not tried all of it's features yet but love it so far. Biggest negatives are not a fault of the camera. Being used to a large DSLR I was shocked at how difficult it is to hold and operate being small. Of course the small size is also the reason I bought it. I also do not like the absence of a viewfinder but I knew that when I bought it. The printed manual that comes with the camera has very little info in it. I initially thought the camera had limited capabilities until I decided to look at the manual that was on the CD. All things considred I am very pleased with the camera for my intended use. i would recommend to persons that have the same needs.


Great Pictures and Video


Better Quality and More Satisfaction than any cell phone camera!


Great point and shoot


As far as most point and shoots go, I rather like Canon ones. This was a great camera for under $100 (price when I bought it). I have a dslr as well, and sometimes the macro mode on this point and shoot does a better job of focusing than I do on the dslr! It's nice to have something small and compact to bring around.


Good P/S


Very nice P/S camera. It comes with different color that make it cute! The AF is good, IQ is good, the zoom could be bigger but it covers the essential. Lots of creative mode. Very small, fits perfectly in a pocket. The battery life is more than correct.
