Excellent value and performance for it's size

on 5/11/2012

I wanted to get rid of my large SLR camera but didn't want to compromise the SLR picture quality and camera features. I found what I was looking for in the Canon Powershot S100 - it is small enough to put in my purse and still takes excellent pictures. I am very pleased with my purchase so far.

Super easy to use, powerful pocket camera

on 6/5/2012

Canon perfected the button layout and interface design for its S-seriers cameras. Very intuitive to use, smooth handling. Image quality is not the best but better than any other pocket camera. GPS works great, always spot-on outdoor, even works indoor sometimes.

Product Overview

Canon's PowerShot S100 Digital Camera is an advanced compact digital camera with lots of razzle-dazzle backed up by top-notch engineering. It boasts an impressive 12.1 MP CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 5 Image Processor for razor-sharp image quality. Add to that an f/2.0-5.9 24-120mm (equivalent) zoom lens, an intuitive manual-control ring, and the superbly refined Intelligent IS image stabilization system with six different modes, and you've got yourself a recipe for superb still images and video capture. There's a slew of shooting modes to choose from, and RAW + JPEG capability too. The S100 delivers pretty much anything you might wish for in a compact digital camera--and a lot more.

Not only can you capture photos with sensitivity up to ISO 6400, you can choose the degree of control you want over exposure, white balance, focus, and more, from an extensive menu. You can automatically produce High Dynamic Range, panoramic, fisheye, low-light and many more specialized photos with built-in programs.

And you don't have to stop at still photographs: shoot gorgeous 1080p HD video with stereo sound at up to 24 fps, or 720p at up to 30 fps--there's even a miniatures effect that blurs the top and bottom of the video frame, giving your subject the appearance of being miniatures.

The S100 is a simple point-and-shoot camera, and it's a serious image-making machine. You get to choose.
