My first complaint about the S110
Dec 23, 2012

I've had the S110 for a few days now and I'm still testing/trying it. While I'm very impressed with it overall, I ran into something that bothers me a lot today. I was outside shooting, and the battery meter showed "full." I started shooting some video, and within about a minute the red low battery sign popped up. When I stopped shooting video and went back to regular mode, the battery level showed roughly 2/3rds full. I turned the camera off and on again, and the battery meter showed full again! So, the battery meter is pretty worthless, which mean buying and carrying a spare battery is essential.

I also wonder whether the video mode is a major power drain and will limit video shooting to just a minute or two - which will be a major flaw.
