PROS

  • The ELPH 190 IS is Wi-Fi and NFC enabled for easy cable-free transfer of images.
  • Its low price puts it into the "keep a camera at work" category.
  • A 10x optical zoom, 20-megapixel sensor, and optical image stabilization make for potentially good-quality pictures.

CONS

  • Video suffers a bit at only 720p HD resolution and 25 frames per second due to the CCD image sensor.
  • A fixed preview screen and no optical viewfinder make it less flexible than some other compact cameras.
  • Low-light images are not great with a maximum ISO of 1600 and a slow f/3.0-f/6.9 zoom lens.
The Canon PowerShot ELPH 190 IS camera is a budget compact with a stabilized 10x optical zoom and a 20-megapixel sensor. However, the ELPH 190 IS loses points for a CCD sensor with a maximum of 1600 ISO and a slow f/3.0-f/6.9 zoom lens. The built in Wi-Fi or NFC pairs with your smart device for file transfer. The 2.7-inch fixed LCD frames your shots, but there’s no eye-level viewfinder. You can shoot video, but only at up to 720p HD and 25 frames per second. With an MSRP price of $160, 10x zoom, and its super portability, the PowerShot ELPH 190 IS is a good camera to keep at work or toss into your backpack or briefcase. Just remember to get a sturdy case.

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 190 IS feels like a blast from the past, as many of its features seem like they were more common on point-n-shoot cameras from a few years ago.
