Re: S100: for the Point-&-Shooter, or not?

Thanks for the idea doctortee. I did check into the P300 and the smaller lens coupled with the overprocessing of JPG's has a few review sites saying it can't quite match the S100 IQ. That is definitely a contender though.

You know it just seems like each vendor has something that would be "perfect" as a next release... eg; a S105, P400, XZ-2, X11, LX-6 hahahah

[quote] That's what I'm struggling with right now... I'm willing to pay whatever, for the best P&S camera. I am reading the S100 makes bad auto decisions, people suggesting to +1 this and -1 that, etc etc. I'm looking at the S100, Fuji X10, Panny LX5 and Olympus XZ-1 and am having a hard time in finding out the best small sized P&S.

Good low light, good natural colours, good video, which rules out the XZ-1 so that leaves me with S100, Fuji X10, Panasonic LX-5. [ quote]

I also was looking for a quick-no-worry-p&s, and i'm happy with the Nikon P300. It delivers very good photos, also in low light and doesn't need any postprocessing (well, it doesn't has raw). also the standard automatic white balance works great in artificial light. And the video mode is very good, too!
So, maybe this is an idea?
