Did anyone else get this deal from buydig?? I received mine but the contents looked like it was taken out and put back in the box. Camera is ok so far, but if I recall this was not advertised as open box or refurbished...even if it was refurbished, the packaging should have been clean and tight, which it wasn't.
Has anyone else had this experience with buydig? This was my first purchase with them, not sure if I'll ever buy from them again.

The 110HS that you have is not a bad camera at all. You didn't get ripped off. It's a nice camera. I would get that camera as a backup too. But I was just saying you really can't compare the 110HS with the S100/110 - they're in a different league. For the slickdeal price you got for it especially, you can't beat it. For most casual shooters, it is more than enough especially if you're just posting pictures on facebook or something. S100/S110 would definitely be overkill for my parents.
In the end, you have to consider how picky you're going to be with the image quality, if you need more flexibility in manual controls, and feel of the camera body/controls.
It's basically comparing a Kindle Fire with an iPad/Nexus -- they both do the basic work and similar features... most people will probably be happy with the Kindle... some really don't need/care for the higher model tablets, but others do. It all depends on your needs. What's best for one person isn't going to be for another. Like I said, you wouldn't buy a S100/S110 for your grandparents.

For anyone comparing this with S100 and trying to come up with a decision - there are a couple things of note:
S110 has the next generation processor - what improvement this would bring - I don't know.
S100 has GPS tagging. S110 does not have this
S110 have wi-fi and touch screen, S100 does not.
These last two features is more related to what you are interested in. I don't find wi-fi useful. Touchscreen would be a nice addition but not better than having GPS tagging.
Other people comparing this to cheaper point ant shoots of canon: You will probably get same image quality if you will just use auto settings under good daylight or using flash indoors (cringe).
If you are intending to shoot family photos indoors and if you are ok with blurry/grainy photos - by all means get the cheaper camera.
And on another note - any cheapest DSLR will have better image quality.
And last note, when people are talking about image quality - they don't talk about the bazillion megapixels that the camera is saving images with. It does not matter - you don't need anything more than 6mp, if you are gonna print posters maybe 10mp.

Guess I'll get the s100

S100 for $249-$230
that's close to "~$200" imo

Really don't want to spend $320.
Any suggestions on around $200?
Was thinking the S100???

I will also assume you are not trolling. The specs you did not mention are the sensor size and the lens aperture. S110's sensor is larger and the lens is brighter/faster. This results in better image quality. To channel Lark and not to sound condescending - perhaps not in the Auto mode.
Whether it's worth an extra $200 (or if it is in the budget at all) is a personal decision.
