I have one of the original-release models of S100, serial # 29..., with almost 3000 images, and no problems.

Same here with #29 serial... I purchased Oct 15, 2011 = 1st day my local Best Buy rec'd them. Mine has only taken about 1,200 images, though but no problems so far.

Have you looked at this pop-up sun shade? The frame stays attached to your camera but you can easily remove the pop-up portion for extended indoor use should you choose.

Mine is 4-5 months old. serial number #41xxx...

Happy with the camera. The battery life was fine to me as well, no need for a 2nd one. Put in a Sandisk16GB Class 10, and Bob's your uncle!

My only regret was not putting on the screen protector when I had it, have got a couple of scratches on the LCD now...

Hope this helps. If this is the camera you think you want, go get it.

It was sad to see that Gail had the dreaded lens issue issue with his S100 as those glowing reports were responsible for me finally taking the plunge. I was on the fence, as you are, and have had my S100 now for 4 months with no problems and amazing results.

second sample, no issues
In reply to Tapper123, Jul 20, 2012

My first sample had the dreaded lens error (lens got stuck in the "out" position). The second sample is surprisingly good - decent DR, excellent detail rendition for a small sensor camera. I wish it didn't stop down so quickly as the focal length increases, but that's the price one pays for pocketability (we'll have to wait and see what the new Panasonic is like in real world photography).

I'm very pleased with my S100.

I have the S90, S95 and an early model S100, which has one of the affected serial numbers (30xxxx...) known to have the lens error issue.

So far, I've never had a problem with any of these delightful camera.

You are very kind to say this bc. But I think the problem is greater than many expected. The good news, though, is that Canon has announced a fix and, hopefully, they will get it right.

It's a pain when something like this happens but at least we know that if the problem surfaces beyond the warranty period, it will be fixed free of charge. Mine is all packed up and ready to be shipped to Canon repair early next week.

I am glad to see that there are many who have not experienced the lens error and I trust that their s100s remain problem-free! I have been and will continue be using my sd700 and s90 in the interim. I'm very fond of both cameras but, boy, do I miss my s100!

I buy my S100 in October and I'm really happy with it.

I take really good picture with it, indoor low light picture without flash are really good, and high ISO don't have lots of noise.

Only thing, buy a other battery and the battery need a few charge cycle to get better charge, don't know why, but when the battery was new I didnt take alot of picture before I get low battery warning, now it's better.

my S90 is still going strong 15k clicks later. i got mine three days before official release.

it has been dropped several times on club/bar hard floors so it has plenty of battle scars but NO structural damage. battery lid still tight, flash flush to body, all knobs/button/dials function perfectly. i did drop it twice with the lens out and it got jammed but was able to un-jam it; the lens is just slightly loose and IQ is not affected.

it continues to perform perfectly and in rough conditions. i purchased the UW case used for 1/2 retail price and it works great too.
