Re: Offer Samsung EX-1 compared to Canon S100

Hi, I own an EX1 and have tried out a S100 in-store. Here is comparison of the pro aspects (never compare the negatives as nothing is perfect!)

My two cents:

pros S100

  • less weight and more compact

  • nice ring around the barrel for changing the settings

  • more tele than EX1

  • integrated GPS (if that suits your needs)

  • integrated lens cap (opens and closes automatically)

  • battery charger included in the package (EX1 only comes with a cable)

  • full HD video (if that suits your needs, I use a still camera as a still camera)

  • underwater housing available (if that suits your needs)

pros EX1

  • fully articulated display as opposed to fixed screen

  • faster autofocus than S100 (from my personal POV, don't know the lab specs off-hand)

  • faster lens at the tele end

  • hot-shoe for a viewfinder or flashgun

  • half the price of the PowerShot S100

At this price (199€) the EX1 is an awesome bargain!
