Just Posted: Our review of the Canon PowerShot S100. The S100 is the latest in Canon's range of pocketable photographer's compacts, building on the success of the popular S90 and S95. This most recent model offers a more ambitious 24-120mm equivalent, f2.0-5.9 zoom in front of a Canon-made 12MP 1/1.7" type CMOS sensor, marking a much bigger advance than in the last update. Is it another step towards the perfect pocket shooter or has the camera giant over-reached itself? Find out in our review.
When Canon revived its PowerShot S range with the S90 in August 2009, it was in acknowledgement of a clear demand from enthusiast photographers for high quality yet pocketable cameras offering extensive manual control. The S95, which followed almost exactly a year later, stuck with much the same formula - a relatively large sensor (at least in compact camera terms), a 28-105mm equivalent zoom lens with a fast F2 maximum aperture at wideangle, and a multi-functional control dial around the lens. But while its successor, the S100, looks much the same again on the outside, it is to all intents and purposes a brand new camera.
We've just published our first impressions of the Canon PowerShot S100. Our full review of the S100 is being delayed by concerns that the samples we've used may not be representative of final product. In this article Reviews Editor Barnaby Britton explains the delay, and shares his personal impressions of the camera's handling, operation and image quality.
