The PowerShot ELPH 115 IS features a powerful Genuine Canon 8x Zoom Lens that delivers outstanding optical performance and versatility. Fitting a high-performance lens with such wide zoom range into a camera so thin would normally be considered an impossible feat but Canon's expert optical engineering met the challenge, developing a lens that achieves outstanding compactness with high zoom power and superb performance. The zoom starts at 28mm wide-angle and extends to 224mm telephoto (35mm equivalent), covering an exceptionally wide range. The telephoto reach gives you the freedom to capture subjects from a considerable distance, while the 28mm wide-angle makes it easy to shoot sweeping landscapes, large groups of people and tall buildings.
With the camera's 16.0 Megapixels of resolution, your images are rich and clear, with textures and tiny details faithfully reproduced even at the long end of the big 8x Optical Zoom. This high level of resolution is ideal for creating the largest prints, and allows you the flexibility to blow up and crop any section of an image to express your creativity. The DIGIC 4 Image Processor powers the camera's advanced systems and features, ensuring fast, reliable performance with low battery consumption.
Canon DIGIC Image Processors have set the standard for functionality and performance since their groundbreaking introduction in 1999. With each successive generation, DIGIC processors have brought elevated performance and powerful new features to PowerShot digital cameras. The DIGIC 4 Image Processor has ushered in a new level of picture quality and accelerated processing, making possible features such as high-speed continuous shooting, HD video and Face Detection Self-timer.

The camera then makes optimal settings to ensure the best possible image capture when shooting still images. Smart AUTO also includes Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. With Smart AUTO, all you have to do is frame your shot and capture away.

I bought this camera to carry in my car so I could take shots that occur spontaneously from time-to-time, since I don't generally carry my DSLR everywhere I go. It is compact and convenient, easy to grab quickly, and the 8X optical zoom will handle most of the longer shots I might have to take. Picture quality is excellent, and the price was quite reasonable.
very good for casual and random photography
Quick response. Takes sharp beautiful pictures. I use this as a supplement for my Iphone and Ipad.
I expected this camera to have a self-timer (I thought all cameras did now) and am disappointed that it doesn't have one. It is nice and compact, seems to take good pictures and I like the zoom. I will be interested to see how long the batteries last.
Camera is small and easy to carry, use it to take unexpected phptos.
Great camera for the price. Much smaller then expected, has a nice weight to it. All metal body. Middle of the road as far as features, but hard to beat for under a hundo! Looks good too. Very Happy. Needs lots of light for photos though.
This was a birthday gift for my daughter and it fit the bill perfectly. The camera is easy to use and the case was perfect for a teenage girl. The added benefit of the memory card made this a great all in one package. The camera is perfect for the kind of shooting she will be doing and it is small enough she can carry it around every where with her.
i'm getting the best use out of it! Looooove it!
This is the latest of several Canon ELPH's that I've owned. This camera is primarily a "grab and go" and for that purpose it performs well. The camera is small, light and takes excellent to good pictures. It is easy to stash in a purse or a pocket. The not so good - Although all the Canon's ELPH's I've owned have a similar format, the buttons on this (zoom/shutter) seem a little awkward. This is probably something you wouldn't notice if you hadn't owned another model previously. The battery is a little difficult to install and the compartment hard to close. Overall I'm satisfied with this purchase. I'd recommend this for a casual photographer, for travel, or for anyone who wants a small reliable camera that won't break the bank.
The sharp images are exactly why I purchased this camera, and I am not disappointed.
