The Bottom Line Small size, excellent image quality, and a solid, though not extensive, feature set make the SD1000 a great choice for a compact camera. Canon's SD1100 IS adds optical image stabilization to last year's hit SD1000, while delivering just as impressive image quality. Nice photo quality, improved autofocus performance, and a very compact design make the Canon PowerShot S110 a solid option if you're looking for something between a point-and-shoot and an enthusiast compact. But if you can find them cheaper, the S100 or S95 are still good alternatives. The PowerShot SD1400 IS is another stylish ultracompact from Canon with features and performance that are stuck in the past. If you're looking for a nice, simple ultracompact for use indoors and out, you'll want to strongly consider the Canon PowerShot Elph 300 HS.
