The PowerShot SX110 IS has 9MP CCD sensor with DigicIII processor, the CCD sensor is 1/2.3 inch which is bigger than the most SD series cameras resulting in better pictures. Controls are intuitive and a separate replay start button on the back gives you the flexibility to switch on the camera for playback without extending the lens. Feels good in the hands, battery compartment gives the camera a better grip, DSLR like black color. Huge 3" LCD scratch resistant screen makes composing shots easy. Great 10X optical zoom and 40X digital zoom. Flash can be flipped up or down as needed, this camera also offers 3 manual flash settings which really helps with portraits. Sharp pictures - Daylight pictures are excellent and zoom is great for capturing landscapes. Many modes to shoot - night mode, portrait, landscape, kids and pets, indoors, special scene modes (fireworks, aquarium, foliage, snow, beach etc.) and custom colors too. 2 extra buttons at the back for changing exposure in 1/3 stops and also adjust for face detection. Macro mode results in stunning close-ups with outstanding level of detail. Uses 2 AA batteries, can take 300-400 pics with one set of rechargeable NiMHs and if you run out of battery they are universally available.
