S100 and SX230 HS
Oct 4, 2011

I'm an architecture student who needs a good camera for site visits, and also musician who needs a camera with good video capabilities. Not an experienced photographer, but with some interest in photography, quick learner and hope to be able to utilise some manual controls.

Type: Fixed lens cameras.
Preferred brand: Canon
Type of photography: Mostly stationary objects.

Models in mind: Basically narrowed it down to 2 options: Canon Powershot SX230 HS, and the Canon Powershot S100

I don't quite know what the fuss about S100 is, it only has a 5x zoom! Is that really sufficient? I'm also considering waiting for the upgraded SX230, with the DIGIC 5 processor probably.

What do you guys think?
