The PowerShot ELPH 115 IS features a powerful Genuine Canon 8x Zoom Lens that delivers outstanding optical performance and versatility. Fitting a high-performance lens with such wide zoom range into a camera so thin would normally be considered an impossible feat but Canon's expert optical engineering met the challenge, developing a lens that achieves outstanding compactness with high zoom power and superb performance. The zoom starts at 28mm wide-angle and extends to 224mm telephoto (35mm equivalent), covering an exceptionally wide range. The telephoto reach gives you the freedom to capture subjects from a considerable distance, while the 28mm wide-angle makes it easy to shoot sweeping landscapes, large groups of people and tall buildings.
poor low-light performance
This camera only takes usable pictures outside on bright days. Any situation with low to medium light produces extremely grainy, noisy images with spots in them regardless of how you set the camera. Also, you must manually set the ISO below 400 in all situations or the image will be too noisy.
This camera has a lot of good features but the image quality is not acceptable.
Don't just take my word for it. Read some professional reviews.

Dane memory cards bad.
The Dane memory cards are bad. Test at store before leaving. Tell store you like the camera but ask to exchange the card to a SanDisk 8 GB card. Show them the Dane does not work. It is a great little camera. If they don't change out the card, ask for a refund and walk away.

Purchased the camera at Sam's club. Going on a cruise and started taking pictures. Took a few pictures and viewed them on the camera, they looked ok. Turned the camera off. When turning the camera back on to take pictures a message came up on the screne memory card error. I had to purchase a new memory card and it worked fine.
