Sleek and Serious.

The PowerShot S100 is a sophisticated pocket-friendly point-and-shoot digital camera which has the power to create standout images for advanced users and enthusiasts. As with other PowerShot cameras, the compact PowerShot S100 incorporates all of the advanced Canon technologies that make capturing superb photos and video as easy as pressing a button. Yet, when it's time to get creative, the very same camera in the hands of a skilled photographer can produce stunning images that would be at home in a gallery. As automatic or manual as you need it to be, the PowerShot S100 is, at once, a pocket camera and a serious photographic tool, impressing even demanding pros. It incorporates the Canon HS SYSTEM, now featuring the new DIGIC 5 Image Processor for enhanced image quality and amazing low-light performance. The fast f/2.0 lens helps you tackle unfavorable lighting and capture breathtaking portraits with beautiful, shallow depth-of-field. 12.1 Megapixels ensure crisp, richly detailed images, and a 5x Optical Zoom provides an excellent all-around range to shoot near or far.

  • newegg Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor The latest-generation Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor brings phenomenal increases in processing speed and power. Improved chip architecture and algorithms deliver greatly expanded functionality with further refinement in image quality. Improved noise reduction produces clearer images when shooting in low light at high ISO speeds. Enhanced i-Contrast performance adjusts differences between light and dark areas to achieve even more natural-looking results. The faster processing speed also results in faster continuous shooting capability while maintaining full image quality. The DIGIC 5 Image Processor also makes possible a new, highly advanced automatic white balance system. Whereas conventional white balance makes an overall adjustment based on a single type of light source, the new Canon Multi-Area White Balance analyzes several areas of the image to determine whether different adjustments are needed, for example, for the main subject and the background.
  • newegg Canon HS SYSTEM The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you take bright, clear photos in an even wider range of shooting situations. Beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies brought together in PowerShot cameras: a high-sensitivity imaging sensor, which is able to capture more light; and the DIGIC Image Processor, which actively reduces noise with high-speed image processing. The 12.1 Megapixel Canon CMOS sensor in the PowerShot S100 incorporates advanced light reception technology that enhances sensitivity. The new DIGIC 5 Image Processor provides a major boost in noise reduction, expanding the usable ISO range to an amazing high of ISO 6400. The Canon HS SYSTEM thus lets you use higher shutter speeds to capture clearer images with reduced noise and blur.
  • newegg Canon Full HD Video Advantage In addition to the Canon HS SYSTEM, the combination of the advanced CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor in the PowerShot S100 makes it possible to shoot crisp, clear high definition video. Imagine the fun and excitement of being able to shoot spectacular 1080p Full HD video with stereo sound that you can later watch on your HDTV or download to your computer to share with family and friends. In addition to being able to shoot Full HD 1080p video at 24 frames per second, the PowerShot S100 can also shoot 720p HD video at 30 frames per second and features dedicated Movie button, Wind filter and Optical Zoom for easy video capture, plus HDMI with CEC support and Apple iFrame format support.
  • newegg 5x Optical Zoom and 24mm Wide-Angle Lens The PowerShot S100 features a 5x Optical Zoom that will appeal to enthusiasts and casual shooters alike. The zoom range starts at 24mm (35mm equivalent) at full wide-angle, providing the coverage needed to capture indoor group photos, tall buildings, and dramatic landscapes. Full telephoto is 120mm (35mm equivalent), providing a versatile range that includes focal lengths perfect for portraits and close-ups.
  • newegg Bright f/2.0 Lens A fast f/2.0 maximum lens aperture enhances the camera's ability to capture excellent images in low light, but it also does more. You can shoot professional-looking portraits by taking advantage of shallow depth-of-field to impart a pleasing blur to the background. The large aperture also lets you capture more nuances in dimly lit scenes by making better use of the available light.
  • newegg Intelligent IS The latest advance in Canon Optical Image Stabilization technology, Intelligent IS analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation. For stills, the system automatically selects among Normal, Panning, Macro (Hybrid) and Tripod IS modes. When shooting video, the system automatically selects among Dynamic, Powered, Macro and Tripod IS modes. With Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera make the most effective IS settings to assure the steadiest possible image.

5 out of 5 eggsHas the 1.7" sensor (bigger)

Pros: This is just to alert those of you who are looking for higher image quality than the usual point and shoots. This camera has the larger 1/1.7" sensor rather than the 1/2.3" sensor that is used in most other Canon powershots.

I have the Canon G-9 that also uses the 1/1.7" sensor. It takes noticeably better lower noise photos than my regular point and shoot Canon with smaller sensor.

Now, the G-9 is a few years old at this time, so there could have been a lot of advances made in that time. But I believe that there is still a noticeable difference.

I think that the newer G models use the 1/1.7" sensor still, except for the newest $800 G1X that uses a big 1" sensor almost as big as the DSLR cameras use that cost thousands.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Check out the reviews on Dpreview which are the lead camera critics available. Also, don't go by megapixels as a guide to quality in a compact camera, after they got past 10mp, it is pretty useless to go higher in a point and shoot. The better cameras at a low price now go for 10-12 mp with a reduction in noise being the prime feature.
