Found 7th Jan 2014
Just purchased this camera after waiting for it to drop in price from uk supplier.

Shopping around this is currently priced between £200 and £230 as its been replaced with a newer model S120 (£400 on average).

F2 fast lens, touchscreen, 24mm wide, 5x zoom, wireless, hd movie, full manual control, raw and jpeg, great low light capability and most important it's very pockitable!

I was seriously considering the Sony rx100, but at least £180 more I just can't see it being worth the extra money especially as it was being considered for low light photography and after reading the user forums on the Sony it appears that the image stabilisation is a weakness so can't reduce the shutter speed lower than what the Canon can go down to without introducing camera shake.....so bigger sensor and faster lens (1.8) doesn't help in this situation without pushing up iso (hand-held shots)...

Edit - HUKD seem to have **** out the Simply Electronics bit.

Heat added though as this is the best price from a UK retailer. On a side note, I wish Canon would stop advertising these as GPS enabled. They do not have a GPS chip inside; they instead rely on picking up that info from your connected smartphone. Not good!

How does this compare with the Panasonic Lumix TZ30 or Canon Powershot SX780?

The cameras you have specified are travel zoom compact cameras. Good camera for general allround use, however as I have experienced in the past they are not so great with night shots and indoor shots. The canon S110 has a larger sensor and a faster brighter lens so can capture better low light situations. The only thing those cameras have the edge over the S110 is the longer zoom range and built in GPS (not sure about the canon).

Thanks Parms - its a shame that this camera isn't included in the Canon cashback promotion. Otherwise I'd be in.....

If you value a viewfinder the Panasonic LF1 is £100 more and gives a 7X zoom range in an almost identical sized package. Seems to have similar low light performance and review scores.

the s110 is known to be a very high quality compact, and is often chosen by professional photographers as their pocket camera of choice.

Indeed but the LF1 is newer and from all reviews seems to be of similar performance but with the added benefit of the EVF and longer zoom.

I think rx100 is widely regarded as much better at low light. And not aware of any is issues. Costs twice as much though.

I actually purchased the RX100 yesterday to try it out myself from a nearby store, and found that night shots were very good only if I used shutter mode and set the speed i.e. increase to 1/60. The camera then increased the ISO to compensate for this. However, if you leave the camera in auto it seems to pick 1/30 and this is susceptible to camera shake as I found out last night.

The canon simply goes down to 1/15 or 1/8 shutter speed and still takes a steady shot. This also made me realise that the RX100 would not allow me to to take handheld pictures of silky smooth flows of streams and rivers because of the bad image stabiliser. However, the canon would be able to do this without an issue. No doubt the RX100 is a better camera than S110 but these kind of shortfalls are surprising for such an expensive camera.
