i somehow wanted to have an additional point and shoot camera next to my SLR so i went out and got the canon ixus 1100 hs the other day. You can do everything on the touch screen Also you have options to record videos in super slow motion what is really fun.
For those coming across from the world of mobile phone photography, the IXUS 1100 HS should be an absolute cinch to use. The camera has a 3.2-inch touchscreen panel at the rear, which takes up most of the back panel. There’s just enough room for one physical button for playback/picture-review mode. Everything else is controlled from the screen itself.
The top of the camera features a power and a shutter button, a zoom rocker wrapped around the shutter and a switch sliding between full-automatic mode and scene/program modes. Like many other compact cameras, the IXUS 1100 HS is designed to be used primarily in automatic modes. You can tweak options, such as ISO and white balance in program mode, if you so desire, and there are a range of scene modes and filters to use, such as low light, miniature mode and toy camera.
