Very good, surprisingly so
Bought this because I wanted a small, easily portable camera that would fit in the rear pocket of a cyclist's jersey..and wouldn't be so expensive that I wouldn't carry it in case I had a crash.
Well it fits that bill brilliantly. And it also takes surprisingly good pictures. Lots of flexibility in spite of not having Av or Tv capability, which I wasn't looking for.
The low light/high ISO performance is really a stunner. I was hoping ISO 400 would be usable, well ISO 1600 is useable, and even ISO 3200 is acceptable at times!
I had an ELPH 500 HS previously. It was a little too big for my purposes and I ended up not liking the touch screen interface. I was also a bit disappointed with its image quality, odd noise or noise reduction artifacs. The ELPH 100 HS IQ is significantly better. Same sensor, same processor, only difference is the lens. Go figure.
Inexpensive, small, high quality. A no-brainer.

My best camera so far
Base on portability, price, easy of use and quality this is the best camera I ever had, and I had quite a few over 35 years. The image quality is impressive and the night shots without a tripod are amazing. The only con that I can find is that the zoom is only 4X but I was very aware that this is the small price that you have to pay if you want portability. I'm really happy with this camera.

Purchased this camera as a handy "pocket-sized always with you" backup to our Canon DSLRs. The photos are crisp, color rendition excellent, in short a much better camera than I was expecting in such a small package. The only downside.....I hate it when my camera is smarter than I am.
