Thumbs up to Canon for good sound quality
I snagged an Elph 115 for $40 to be used mainly for video. I have always been critical of the audio quality of digital cameras for years. They could usually shoot good video, but left audio as an afterthought. I'm happy to see Canon putting good audio in their lower models now.
Problem was, the sound was so dynamically compressed (loud and soft sound levels made to be similar) and/or used such a low sampling rate that it sounded horrid. Some manufacturers still skimp on the audio in lower end models (Sony, Nikon...).
While not stereo, the camera sound is more natural with better bass response. I once had an S95 and while it had stereo sound, it was just too dynamically compressed and had poor bass response.
Now if they could do something about the image quality when shooting indoors...
