Paul, London, England Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It's got everything the G12 has and more - a better chip too & a lovely solid build feel. A great little piece of kit.
Bad points:
The positioning of the pop-up flash means you have to get used to holding the camera in a different way.
The flash is a little weak.

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The PowerShot S100 uses Canon EOS sensor know-how and the latest DIGIC 5 processor to deliver exceptional images even in low light. With an f/2.0 lens, RAW and GPS this is an expert compact with impact.

High-sensitivity 12.1 MP Canon CMOS sensor
The high-sensitivity 1/1.7 type CMOS sensor, developed using EOS DSLR sensor know-how, works in combination with the DIGIC 5 processor to deliver class leading image quality especially at higher ISO speeds and in low light.

HS System with DIGIC 5
The HS System is a powerful combination of the DIGIC 5 image processor, which is 6x more powerful than DIGIC 4, and a high-sensitivity CMOS sensor. It lets you shoot with low noise and high image quality even in low light up to ISO 6400 – reducing the need for flash or a tripod.

Versatile lens. Intelligent IS
A bright f/2.0 lens further extends your ability to shoot in darker conditions. A 24mm ultra-wide angle setting lets you take stunning landscapes and a flexible 5x zoom gets you up close. Intelligent IS automatically selects exactly the right optical Image Stabilizer setting from 7 possible modes to ensure sharp, detailed photos and videos.

Lens Control Ring, Noise Reduction control and RAW
The lens Control Ring allows quick access to functions such as zoom, aperture, shutter speed, focus or ISO. Make adjustments to the level of noise reduction applied to images or shoot in RAW format for post-processing in the supplied DPP software.

GPS
Embed valuable location information into your images every time you take a shot with GPS tagging. The GPS Logger function can record your position at set time intervals so you can review your entire journey on the supplied Map Utility software.

Full HD Movies, HDMI-CEC
Record superb, Full HD 1080p movies at 24fps with stereo sound. An HDMI-CEC mini connection allows for loss-less playback on a compatible HDTV.

7.5 cm (3.0”) PureColor II G LCD
A 460k dot bright and clear LCD features a tempered glass outer layer for strength and high visibility even when shooting in bright conditions.

High-speed Burst HQ
Thanks to the processing capabilities of DIGIC 5 you can capture full resolution split second action at 9.6fps in an 8-frame burst using High-speed Burst HQ mode.

Smart Auto, Multi-area WB
Smart Auto selects camera settings for you from 32 different scenes (21 in movies), automatically ensuring optimum results. Multi-area White Balance compensates for the presence of multiple light sources for natural results.

Optional Waterproof Case
Protect your camera underwater to depths of up to 40m with the optional WP-DC43 waterproof case.
