I have a Canon Elph 110 and the videos come out with a bitrate of around 33400kbps, which converts to 33mbps which is a lot. The file sizes are big.

Can I drop that bitrate without a lot of drop in quality?

The 110 saves video files in h.264. They're already highly compressed*. Video files are big unless severe quality compromises are made.

Try changing from 1080p24 to 720p30 in the camera and see if that makes any difference. The extra frames should be more benefit than the extra pixels too.

* assuming you don't have it set to a MJPEG mode?
