    * What budget have you allocated for buying this camera? Please be as specific as possible.

    Max $300

    * What size camera are you looking for? Or does size not matter at all to you?

    Compact. Something that will fit in my pants pocket

    How many megapixels will suffice for you?

    Doesn't matter to me

    * What optical zoom will you need? (None, Standard = 3x-4x, Ultrazoom = 10x-12x)

    The more the better, but not a real factor for me

    * How important is “image quality” to you? (Rate using a scale of 1-10)

    Very important, so 10

    Do you care for manual exposure modes (shutter priority, aperture priority, manual)?

    Not really. I am someone who will just turn the camera on and take a picture

    * What will you generally use the camera for?

    Traveling for vacation. So maybe it gets a lot of use 2-3 times a year

    * Will you be making big prints of your photos or not?


    Will you be shooting a lot of indoor photos or low light photos?

    Possibly yes. i would prefer something that takes good low light pictures

    Will you be shooting sports and/or action photos?


    Are there particular brands you like or hate?

    I was thinking of sony, panasonic and canon since they seem to be the top brands. But if you have other suggestions, I'm open to listening

    Are there particular models you already have in mind?

    canon s110 and canon 330hs

    Other Info

    I've had a canon sd1100 for about 6 years and I love it. I'm going to europe in a couple months and I'm looking for something to replace my old camera. I've looked at a bunch of models including the panasonic zs25, sony wx350, canon s110 and canon 330hs and I've narrowed it down to the two I mentioned in my title. My first requirement is image quality followed by video recording(pref 720p @30fps) and ability to take pictures in low light. I was considering the sx series from canon but the battery issue for recording movies was a deal breaker.

    So I'm just looking for some opinions on the 2 models and if they have any other suggestions.

    The S110 is the superior camera as it has a larger, better sensor and a better lens, which results in superior image quality. The only advantage of the Elph 330 HS is that it has more optical zoom - 10x vs 5x. Keep in mind, though, that the S110 has a touchscreen interface while the Elph 330 HS has the traditional dial and button interface.
