Canon S110 a disappointmnet
Oct 13, 2012

I have been waiting for some opinions on the S110. To date very little has been forthcoming from S110 owners in the way of posted photos or qualified opinions.

Finally a thread on this forum suggested that the S110 is not as good in IQ as the S100. He gave as proof the pics on Imaging Resource Comparator. So, I went to the Comparator site, and sure enough the S100 & S110 are available for a comparison test.

I have a excellent Sony 30" monitior, the best they made last year, and it gives a faithful rendition of photos for clarity and color etc.

I was amazed to see that the S110 is not near as good as the S100 in terms of IQ. The photos of the S110 are very much inferior to the S100 at all ISOs. They're not as clear; the S110s are noisier, colors not as vibrant, more smearing etc.

I was looking forward to getting the S110 because I liked the S100 so much. Figuring that the S110 would be even better. To my knowledge this is a first for Canon: where the succeeding model in a line is not as good as the model it replaces.

What is going on at Canon??

To be fair: it could be that Imaging Resource used a camera that was a preproduction model and not a final model for general sale?

It will be awhile, if ever, for me to buy the S110!
