The only "elph" I know of is "elf" which is an executable format for programs in Unix. I doubt that it what you're refering to

When wondering about a term, I usually go here:

http://www.nikonians.com/html/resour...-glossary.html

But that term isn't listed. I'd search on google like "elph camera" and other useful related keywords and see what comes up.

Default Do you mean, as in Canon S230 Digital ELPH?

Probably just a name...

mmmm.....So why not call them CAPST then? Perhaps ELPH has some Japanese meaning.

Would it have anything to do with the cameras size? It probably relates to an Elf or a small fairy or pixie.

probably not much more than IXUS or IXY does. ( IXUS is the UK name for the ELPH USA and IXY Japan)
