A great camera with a fatal flaw

G2DK, Amazon
31 August 2012
  • Summary: The good is that it's a well built camera that takes sharp pictures and has a great feature set for its size. I considered the Sony RX100 and this camera, the newest pocket cameras with larger image sensors.

User Review

fritzb, DP Review
30 May 2012
  • Excerpt: I love this camera for a small still camera. Personally I think they could have made it a little bigger and given it more telephoto capabilities. You can't really fit in a pocket so, to me, you might as well make it a little bigger, easier to hold, more room for lens, etc..

Less than I hoped for...

rhaase345, Amazon

  • Summary: I intended getting an s100 for my wife as a Christmas present, but could not find it in stock anywhere. I ended up getting her an s95. We both love the s95. We took a few hundred pictures over the holidays and are very happy with the results; mostly indoor shots of our children.

Going back for the third time

Michael, Amazon
26 March 2012
  • Summary: Update. Camera going back for the third time. Now I have the dreaded lens error issue where the lens won't retract and the camera won't shoot. This is subject of a repair notice which should make it free. Still the camera has been a nightmare for me. I require reliability.

Canon Blew It on the S100 !

AG, Amazon
26 March 2012
  • Summary: I had high expectations, but Canon really stumbled with the S100. The new CMOS sensor, lens and Digic processing system have not added up to a better camera than the S95. The S95 gave really nice results in terms DOF and clarity and those qualities are missing in the S100.

Big disappointment

Andre060 "Andre", Amazon
9 December 2011
  • Summary: I was really excited for this camera - there are very few in this market segment, a small compact camera intended for enthusiasts. It has full manual controls and can save images in Raw format. On the plus side, the ergonomics and build quality are excellent.

Not there yet . . .

S. Jennings, Amazon
19 November 2011
  • Summary: I've found several serious shortcomings in the S100 I received two weeks ago, not least of which is a ridiculously short battery life (8 - 12 hours with moderate usage). I'd planned to use the camera on multi-day wilderness trips, but this would require toting along several extra batteries (at $30 -...

Frustrating little camera

Kennedy, Amazon
19 March 2012
  • Summary: This compact camera does many things well -- it is perfectly pocketable, very well designed (metal, made in Japan, with fantastic controls - especially the function ring on the camera's face), and almost all the settings can be tweaked manually.

Zweimal defekt. Einmal in Garantie, einmal ausser garantie

Ioannis Angelos, Amazon
13 January 2016
  • Summary: Ich habe diese Kamera in 2011 gekauft. Vor dem Ablauf der Garantie ist das Objektiv defekt geworden. Zweites mal 4 Jahre danach, schon außerhalb der Garantie. Hätte man von Cannon nicht erwartet.

Umständlich zu bedienen, unzuverlässige Technik

Martin, Amazon
5 November 2015
  • Summary: Zum Äußeren, eine handliche Kamera mit großem Display. Leider hält die Kamera die meist guten Bewertungen nicht ein. Die Zeit bis die Kamera auslöst ist teilweise ätzend langsam, die Blitzfunktion hat sich schon lange verabschiedet und die Einstellungen sind sehr kompliziert.
