Hey there. I'm Josh Goldman, senior editor with Cnet and this is a look at the Cannon Powershot Elf, 100 HS. And with so many point and shoot release through out the year, some fall through the cracks, specially at the low end. And that's the case here. The 100 HS was released in the 1st half of 2011 and it's notable because it was Cannon's 1st sub $200 elf with it's new high sensitivity system with a 12 megapixel backside illuminated Cmos sensor. Now it also has a 3 inch LCD on back and a 4x f2859 28 millimeter wide angle lens and it shoots full HD video at the press of a button. It's photo quality is very good for the money. Subjects but noticeably softer from ISO 200 and above, but colors are excellent and in general the results above indoors and out are better than you'll get from the average smart phone which is really what this class of cameras competing against these days. Plus you get a bunch of Cannon's creative shooting options such as toy camera or miniature effect and it will even create small high speed movies for slow motion. Shooting performance is decent for it's class. My main issue is that its autofocus can be slow and inaccurate but if you're not afraid to leave auto, you can get better performance from it. Again, for the money, it's a very good pocket camera and since it's a little older now, you can find it for little more than $100 which is an outstanding deal. I'm Josh Goldman and that's the Cannon Elf 100 HS
