>> Hi. I'm Josh Goldman, senior editor for CNET Reviews, and this is the Canon PowerShot SX110IS. It's a megazoom camera, featuring a 10X optical zoom packed in what's considered a compact body for a camera with a lens that large. For the most part, the SX110 is the same as the earlier model, the SX100. The 110 gets a bump in resolution, from eight megapixels to nine megapixels, and a slightly larger LCD. It's now three inches instead of 2.5 inches. Picture quality remains great, some of the best we've seen from a megazoom camera. Unfortunately, its performance is a bit mixed. Its shot-to-shot times are the main problem, averaging about 2.1 seconds without a flash, but jumping up to about five seconds with the flash on. Also, a few of the issues we had with the earlier model are in this newer one as well. For one, since it only uses two double "A" batteries, it goes through batteries pretty quickly, so you want to get some rechargeables. Second, the body is very slippery, especially right in the grip area. And lastly, the 10X zoom doesn't work when you're shooting video, which is kind of a drag. So despite the camera's best in class photo quality, it's spotty performance and other flaws keep it from getting a full recommendation from us. I'm Josh Goldman, and that's the Canon PowerShot SX110IS. ^M00:01:33 [ Music ]
The Canon PowerShot S5 IS is slowly losing ground to its digital camera competitors, though it remains a good megazoom.
Though the Canon PowerShot SX100 IS produces excellent photos, other aspects of the camera--some performance issues and operational annoyances, to name two--dim its luster.
A nice evolution of the megazoom, the Canon PowerShot SX10 IS delivers some improvements over its predecessor and provides an attractive option for megazoom shooters.
An excellent feature set and improved performance make the Canon PowerShot S2 IS megazoom camera even more attractive than its predecessor.
The Canon PowerShot SX30 IS is a point-and-shoot camera with a 35x zoom lens. As long as you're not expecting much more than that, it's a very good megazoom.
A very good compact camera, the 10-megapixel Canon PowerShot SD900 nonetheless falls short of its faster, more full-featured, albeit lower-resolution competitors.
If you want a compact megazoom with manual controls and fine photo quality, the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is a good place to start.
If you want a compact megazoom with manual controls, GPS, and excellent photo quality, the Canon PowerShot SX230 HS is a good place to start.
A very well-executed megazoom camera, the Canon PowerShot S3 IS reminds you why dSLRs still have competition for photo enthusiasts' hearts.
If you're after an inexpensive ultracompact with good low-light photos, the Canon PowerShot Elph 100 HS is one to get. But you better act fast.

The good: First-rate photo quality; full set of manual exposure controls.
The bad: No optical zoom in movie capture; slippery body; spotty performance.
The bottom line: Though it's certainly a good, inexpensive megazoom camera, some aspects of the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS fall a bit short of its predecessor.
