I really love this little happy snap.  It takes great pictures, and it saves me from dragging around my D300.  I'll just nitpick on my biggest complaint- the pop of flash.  Let's face it, you are going to get red-eye whether you have a pop up, or built in/stationary flash so why have something that literally gets in your way every time you use the camera (especially when you forget to turn off fill flash)?

I'm taking the time to write this one because i don't want you to be surprised. This camera is amazing and does for me very well all that she promises except for one major thing. This thing is the ticking noise of the auto focus in video mode. It's always present, especially in quiet shooting conditions (like an interview). follow this link to hear it yourself on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0NZ-BrysOo The video shooting is one of my major uses of this camera. The image quality ...

Small, light, with very high definition for a compact. I use RAW with Lightroom and enlarge my picture until 30x40 cm : no difference with my Nikon D 300.

This is an impressive little camera, though it looks quite humble from the outside. If there were something like quality per square centimeter, the S100 would be the absolute winner. It's incredible what they managed to squeeze into this little package: a great sensor with impressive noise performance (great up till ISO 1600, useable at ISO 3200 and even 6400), a nice bright (at least at 24 mm) lens with a reasonable zoom, and all the manual controls you need. Auto white balance does an ...

I am still a big fan of the S90, but the S100 has many features that are more useful to me such as: - more useful focal range - does better in low light (up to and including ISO 1600; 3200 and above suitable for only snapshots) - excellent auto white balance - fast continuous mode - very good video quality (mine does not have the flickering some have experienced) - built-in neutral density filter - ergonomics have improved by leaps and bounds I don't regret my purchase and expect to keep and ...

Hi, Finally I got one, This camera looks great with lot's of options... Video seems good but without manual options. Good optical 7D with 16-35 f2.8 looking darkness then S100 f2 (with same ISO). Tomorrow I am going trip to Europe I'll report after that with Image Samples. Problems: Image quality not bad can't say it's like 7D/5D when I am using 640 ISO I got smeared littel image . But I must say that's better then any other pocket cameras that I have ever seen. GPS works nice, Missing option ...

I'll skip all the line resolution junk and get to the meat: how it makes pictures. And the answer is: it makes great pictures (depending on the user, of course). I had the s80, G7, G8, G10, s90, s95, and now… the s100. Love it. Canon really listened and got a ton of things right on this. Here's the minor upgrades that make a major difference in my opinion. The grip. I've had to mod the slippery grip on every previous sXX camera. Dropped them in the snow with slippery gloves, etc. Not this ...

The camera feels great. Small and light, but very solid feeling. Aside from the flash problem and current lack of support for the RAW format I'm loving this camera. It starts up fast and is ready to shoot almost as soon as I am. Focus is prompt, and although my daughter and dogs don't like it, but the AF lamp really speeds up focusing indoors. Outdoor image quality is excellent. Landscape and macro shots are tack-sharp and as long as you don't zoom out the lens is quite fast. Images are very ...
