Review for: Canon PowerShot S100 12.1 MP Digital Camera - Black
i was after something pocket friendly but with ability to take great photos - i got really tired of hauling a dslr with lenses everywhere. sony rx100 was over my budget and other considered models and makes were after all not that small. s100 is basically a g12 but smaller and with newer processor - reviews on the net were very good and not without a reason. for a compact its awesome (first impression was: dear lord, this thing is smarter than i am!:) but do not expect a dslr outcome - if you are used to interchangeable lenses cameras you may feel at first a bit disappointed (at first) and will notice straight away the difference in picture quality (again - for a compact is still outstanding), battery life (1 day busy shooting with gps off and shortest possible review times), handling (of course - its compact), features (a bit short zoom range but pretty wide, 24mm, for a compact, no optical viewfinder - would save a battery, who really needs a gps in a camera? - would be cheaper without it).. - but its way way way lighter to carry around than my d300s and at least 2 lenses! very solid, pretty, great pics - all in all very happy with this baby! Recommended!

Review for: Canon PowerShot S100 12.1 MP Digital Camera - Black
I'm the Olympus PEN E-PL1 user and since planning the trip to Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia needed to get the camera which instead of drawing the attention and hanging around my neck all the time would rather fit in my pocket and don't make me look like a tourist and easy target. At the same time I wanted good picture quality and - what important to me - wide angle lens for shooting landscapes. 24mm equivalent in 35mm system was wider than any other camera I was considering (it's usually 28mm). Aperture of 2.0 at the widest and image stabilisation let's me shoot handheld at night, which is great, since I wouldn't take my bigger Olympus on night escapades in Azerbaijan. This camera does all what I wanted it to do. What it doesn't do: does not stitch panoramas in the camera (you have panorama assist which helps you shoot panorama photos, but actual stitching happens on your computer with Canon provided software). And it doesn't let you take portraits with nicely blurred background called by pros bokeh. Well, that's what's still reserved for cameras with bigger sensor (and bigger and bulkier at the same time). You will still get very shallow depth of field for all the macro work, I guarantee this bee on the flower would be exceptionally happy with it's own portrait:)

Review for: Canon PowerShot S100 12.1 MP Digital Camera - Black
I had a s95 and decided to upgrade because of the slightly wider, slightly longer lens. I think I have been unlucky because I got blue horizontal streaks on the viewing screen in low light high contrast situations, although the streaks do not show on the photos themselves. I have had to send the camera back and am waiting for its replacement. Apart from that I would say that the s100 feels better, more solid, easier to hold and use. I miss the low light click wheel option of the s95 though. You can get the same or better photos but with a few more menu selections and button pushes. I reckon if you don't have an s90 or s95 then get a s100. The choice is not so clear if you have an s95 ( but given that the s95 has kept its price - after all it IS a very good camera ) you could probably upgrade for about £80 or so after taking the sale of your s95 into account. The only thing in the back of my mind is what will the s105 have - On balance I don't regret moving to the s100. Just a bit hacked off that I got a turkey this time

Great image quality, full of features.

You can buy an entry level DSLR for that price though, so you must require a small form factor, as this camera is not as versatile as a DSLR.

The only annoyance is the inability to align HDR shots in-camera, so you need to use a tripod. Meh.
