Conclusion: Get the $30 Canon PSC-900 leather case . I got one for my S95, and it is also the same for my S100. It's very well made out of real leather, and works great. The S100 is the best pocket camera ever made by Canon, and Canon makes the world's best pocket cameras.
Summary: The functional yet compact S100 continues to refine Canon's high-end Powershot line. With a GPS, 5x wide-angle lens, 1080p HD video, and the much-lauded control wheel, does this camera have what it takes to be top dog?
Summary: The new Canon PowerShot S100 is one of a new Canon digital cameras with DIGIC 5 image processor and sensors inspiration SLR with 12.1 MP Canon CMOS sensor with high sensitivity with ultra wide-angle 24mm lens, f / 2, 5x optical zoom and Technology Intelligent IS.
Pros: CMOS sensor with high sensitivity, zoom ultragrandagolare; Control Dial on the camera body; system with GPS logger and geo-tags, Multi-area White Balance.
Excerpt: I just purchased this camera because my SD500 finally broke after one too many drops. I bought it based on the following:Compact, point and shoot camera can be strapped to my chest harness for quick accessGreat image qualitySupports both fully manual and fully automatic modesSupports full HD...
Summary: For photographers who like to take control over their cameras the S100 provides a near DSLR-like level of manual control in an easily pocketable 'take-anywhere' camera.
Pros: Very good image quality, especially at low ISO settings., Well optimized JPEGs, low contrast detail is well-preserved at low ISO settings, Automatic fringing/CA correction in JPEGs, Fast operation, Bright LCD screen is easy to see in daylight, Exposure simulation in live-view and accurate live hi...
Cons: Manual focus preview resolution is too low to be useful, Lack of in-camera alignment of HDR images makes it a much less useful feature than it could be, Auto ISO is limited to 1600 (wasting two stops of extra ISO sensitivity), Pop-up flash can be blocked by your finger
Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot series of point-and-shoot digital cameras has been running strong for fifteen years. Why stop now? That’s Canon’s thinking, as evidenced by their latest release, the Canon PowerShot S100 ($430) .
Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Canon Digital Ixus: (2 megapixel ultra compact class) Nobody could fault Canon for producing the smallest, lightest digital camera yet, and they certainly couldn't fault them for building it with a large degree of precision and an eye to robustness.
Pros: Tiny size, light weight, strong metallic case, looks (these add up to portability), Automatic lens cover, Fairly good image quality (though not breathtaking at 100%), good colour balance, Super-Fine JPEG mode for TIFF quality at half the size, Nice easy to use menu system, straight forward contro...
Cons: Still got that "Canon" slightly cool / under saturated look to images, Some visible noise on flat areas, No support for CF Type II (probably a battery limit), Moiré pattern / early detail aliasing at distances, Very limited low-light abilities, Small flash makes for use only at relatively short d...
Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot S100 is a worthy successor to our previous Editors' Choice high-end point-and-shoot camera, the PowerShot S95. It adds a longer zoom lens and GPS, and improves on the S95's image quality and performance.
Pros: Sharp, fast lens. Very good low-light performance. Fast recycle time. Raw shooting support.
Cons: Pricey. LCD is not best in class. No hot shoe.
