TLDR: nice IQ, features, but the worst in it's class for shot to shot times.

"not terribly fast--probably fine for street shooting, but it'll never keep up with unpredictable kids or animals."

True? Is this a bad camera for kids and pets?

To me, the 8 fps burst mode is great for kids and pets. I got a great series of shots of my soon-to-be step-son falling into a pool at a waterpark.

Yeah, too expensive to give your kids and your dog could swallow it in one bite

I think she gave the s100 a lower score than it deserves. I've been using mine for a couple of days now and this is a great camera! Excellent high ISO performance, I've used mine at 1600 with no noise...amazing in such a small camera! I haven't noticed any slowness in operation but I haven't tried shooting kids or sports and I doubt there are any compact cameras that will match a DSLR in that regard. The thing is very high quality and a lot of fun to use!

Nah the S100 is not too expensive to give to kids

I was just letting my toddler use my T2i with a $400 prime last night.

I got a few nice kid level pictures.
