A camera that takes better shots than an old A510? The 110hs doesn't.

So, what is your opinion of the lens-error challenged s100, assuming Sony continues its usual business mode? Bigger sensor, albeit only slightly bigger, lower mp...any noticeable

I still think it's one of the best cameras out there, considering it's size. I use mine almost every day.

Personally, I've never had an interest in the Sony rx100 though I know it's just about the best small compact out there for low light. But, for the vast majority of my needs, the S100 does fine in low light. I prefer it's size and it's 24-120mm equiv zoom range compared to the Sony's 28-100mm.

I have some photos taken with the s100 in my pbase gallery if you care to take a look: inside low light, outside, close-ups, etc.

I owned the Canon A510, and several others (A590, SD700, SD890), all fine cameras in daylight. But none could match the low light performance of the S100.

Hi Gail,

Love your work, and all of your helpful posts regarding all that you have gone through with your s100!

I believe I shall try to snag one when (and if) I see a good deal on Cyber Monday...I shall be sure to check the serial numbers right off.

The way I see it, one can get super pocketable, pocketable (s100), jacket pocketable (g series) then fuggedaboutit (need a case).  I wouldn't mind trying an rx100, but for that price I would start looking at 4/3.  The size really isn't that much of an issue; anything smaller than a dSLR is good.

Thanks again for the great advice and help,
