But for me personally actually using the S100 proved a huge disappointment. I was told the camera was zippy and good in low light. What I discovered is that it is sluggish (the write times are a bane - "busy" is the most common message the camera seems to display to me, even at medium Jpeg settings, which is just a killer - click, wait-wait, click, wait-wait); in low light it is average to poor (the 2.0 lens and high ISOs haven't gotten me a charming low light picture yet after a month or so of constantly tweaking the settings to find the 'sweet spot' where everything works simply and reliably with minimum adjustments); and generally it hasn't been any fun.
I don't know how else to put it - it just seems to be a struggle to get the thing to take a quick, decent picture unless you're in broad daylight with nothing moving too quickly in front of you, and you stay at 24mm. It's been a disaster trying to get good (i.e well exposed and in focus) photos of my children, so if that's your intended use for it, I'd recommend against. I haven't taken one picture yet where I thought, Yes, thank you S100!
This is my first duff Canon. I'll be putting it aside and having a look at the Olympus ZX1 and Lumix LX5, which were the other two cameras i considered before getting this one.
*****I didn't intend to be completely negative, but then I have had a largely bad experience with this camera, so being fair wasn't an option. I was also going to give it three stars, but then I remembered the price, and that stung! So two it is...*****
Of the 3 cameras I have been tempted by recently - Olympus XZ-1, Fuji X10 and S100, the latter was the ONE. I have wanted something that would replace a beloved Powershot G11 in a smaller form factor and this is it.
Sadly I couldn't purchase directly from Amazon (at the time of writing due to availability constraints) so had to bite the bullet at a local high street store for the higher RRP price - actually handling one was the decider!
Contrary to what one would expect of a high end compact like the S100 and indeed what Canon's literature leads us to believe, the Powershot S100 does NOT have a full manual control mode.
In manual mode the S100 places automatic limits your ISO and shutter speed combinations. For those of us that like to take creative photographs of the night sky etc. this renders the S100 next to useless. An even more ridiculous state of affairs considering it's reported superior low noise capability would otherwise make it a good choice for such use.
These limits in manual mode may not be a concern for you but just be aware that manual mode isn't quite as flexible or indeed fully manual on the Powershot S100.
