Summary: I agree with all the positive reviews on image quality, manual adjustments, RAWness, and size. I will add that this camera has lived for the last two years in either the rear pocket of a bicycle shirt (in a plastic bag), a backpack, or a pants pocket. I haven't had a single issue. The darn thing is rock solid.
Summary: This Canon is the best compact digital camera I have ever had. I am very satisfied with it: it is very compact, smart, it has a very good image quality for a great value of money. I highly recommend this smart, tiny and amazing camera.
Excerpt: Even as a professional, I hated carrying around my DSLR, and I was craving a pocketable camera that gave me the ability to use all the manual controls that I always use. Man, did this little gem fill the bill! It yields super sharp images that easily rival my Nikon D7000, and needless to say, my Nikon is no longer used!
Summary: We upgraded from the ELPH when we were going to Iceland on vacation. The camera takes amazing photos! Truly professional quality. And all I used was the point and click as I didn't have time to read up on all the camera abilities. And it fits in your pocket- minimal lugging.
Summary: Picked this camera up on sale during the last Black Friday. For a compact point and shoot, it doesn't get much better. It does well in low light and really well good lighting. We usually use the auto setting, but I've toyed around with the manual controls and find it easy to control.
For pocket camera, takes good pictures for point and shoot.

Summary: Bought it for traveling because of small size. Have been really impressed with the quality of pictures it takes. Have been taking it along most everywhere, and taking a lot of pictures. Good low light capability. Bought small belt carrier, that also has room for extra battery. Got 16 gig sd card, so feel like I'm prepared. Have not been bothered as much as I thought with lack of view finder.
Summary: I've had the s95 for over 2-1/2 years, and finally wore it out (after dropping it and abusing it, keeping it in my purse or pocket on a daily basis; I've taken it on dozens of trips- even international, and taken over 10,000 pictures with it). When I realized it was dying, I started looking into the newer model. I decided to try the s100 because it was cheaper yet still got excellent reviews.
Summary: I use a Canon t4i as my main camera, but sometimes you need to go places where its not feasible to carry a large camera. This is a great camera small enough to fit in my pocket when I don't want a big camera to carry around.
Summary: I compare this camera to my Canon 7D SLR. I am amazed that I get pictures that are essentially as good as those that I get with the far more expensive SLR. The S100 has some of the drawbacks of a point and shoot such as a simple exposure system and the fact that you must use the preview window on the back to compose your shot. But....it has the advantages of a good point and shoot in that it is small, lightweight and easy to use.
