Just Posted: Canon PowerShot S100 hands-on preview

Just Posted: Canon PowerShot S100 hands-on preview. We've had a chance to use the S100 and find just what's changed from the much-liked S95. The example we had was too early for us to be allowed to shoot with but we've studied the details (such as the maximum available aperture through its zoom range), to give you an idea of what Canon's latest enthusiast compact brings.

GF3? not a chance... of course, if it does... :)

I don't think you can compare the GF3 IQ, different camera type and lens dependent. On paper looks promising though.

Slimmer body and wider lens - this looks like it might make my wish list if the image quality is good and compares well enough with a GF3, given the smaller sensor.

I wouldn't count on any micro sensor to suddenly become endowed with m43 or larger IQ. Highlight transitions, DR, high ISO, shadow noise and sensor read noise will always be worse with the smaller, higher density sensor.

Most likely little or no better than the S90/S95, so not anything like the GF3, and certainly not comparable as a camera in the first place. No offense.

Horrible looking when compared to the S95.
GPS is a nice addition if it works fast.
