Re: Need recommendations on a pocket camera for the wife
In reply to JimS, Dec 30, 2011

I actually bought a Canon S95 for my wife. The good thing about it is that she takes the camera always with her - in contrast to myself with my DSLR. That said it is very nice to have the option to do some pictures in raw and Av or Tv mode. It often helps to get a good picture even if light conditions are difficult.

Canon has just released the S100 (see review here on dpreview). Maybe it is an option to get a S95 with a nice discount? If money doesn't matter I would buy the S100 given that Canon has obviously build in some nice improvements.

Hope this helps.
