5.0 out of 5 stars A Decent Successor to my F30, 25 May 2012
By 
This review is from: Canon PowerShot S100 Digital Camera - Black (12.1MP, Ultra Wide Angle, 5x Zoom) 3.0 inch LCD (Camera)
I had been putting off upgrading my Fuji F30 for many years as I did not think that anyone had yet managed to best its low light capabilities. I had been interested in the s90 and the s95 for some time but never really felt it was worth the upgrade. I finally bought the s100 for its video capabilities as much as its photographic ones in order to capture those family moments when my 60D wasn't to hand, or inappropriate. My main reservation was the reportedly low battery life, being used to a very long battery life on the F30.

I have to say I'm impressed all round. The video is superb, actually seems to be better than my 60D. Size and handling is perfect, and that ring is really useful. Image quality in bright sunlight is comparable with SLR images, and the low light capability is on par with my F30 (ie class leading). I find the extra focal length helpful as well, although its only really worth using in sunshine as its f 5.9 at the long end. Finally the battery life is actually quite acceptable. I havn't run out yet, despite shooting video and photos quite actively for a large part of the day.

Comes highly recommended.
