I couldn't be happier with the s100. I've taken thousands of photos and test photos with it since buying it last October. I've not had one problem with the cameras and neither have many others.

Yes, there harve been some lens issues, but now that Canon has acknowledged and promised to fix it, I'd have confidence buying the S100 knowing that IF I had factory fault issue with the lens, it would be fixed for free.

Quite frankly, you can have problems with any brand digital camera.

I would have no problem buying a s100 today, however if you're going to constantly worry that something will go wrong you'll never be happy with it so the better route may be to look for a different brand camera.

Here are a few sample shots I've taken with the S100: good light, low light, close-up, etc. I primarily us PMode and do minor editing. You can see additional photos taken with my S100 in my pbase gallery.

Sorry, I have no experience with the Nikon P310.

All the best with whichever camera you decide to buy.
