Has some drawbacks

I purchased the S100 as a replacement for my S90 that went missing somehow. There are several nice features but the come at a price. Most noticeable is the lag time between taking a picture and when you can take another one. This is painfully slow as the camera does not appear to have a built in buffer to store an image and write to the memory card. I had to turn off many of the features in hopes of speeding up the image stabilization. Don't even try using the GPS feature unless you bring along extra batteries.. this will suck down the battery juice big time. Canon finally added a quick button to record movies so you do not have to turn the function switch on the top. The camera also has a new focusing mechanism. On prior models you get green boxes around the subject face once the camera has focused. Here you get the same box but the it magnifies the face of the main subject it is focusing on. Not sure what the purpose of this is and it seems to slow down the image trecording.

Great pix, but watch out for pop-up flash

After reading several reviews of the S100, I was afraid of buying too much camera for me as I am not by any means a professional photographer. Fears aside, I still got it and I am not sorry. It is fun to play with the myriad of settings. Besides, I could take classes if I want to take better pictures. The camera mostly works beautifully, the pictures and video are wonderfully clear. My only real issue is the pop-up flash. Not a good placement design. Instinctually one holds a point and shoot camera with both hands to steady it but unfortunately the placement of the flash is right under your finger. If you don't watch your finger placement you could block the flash and cause the camera to error out. You have to re-start it in order for the flash to work again. I am not sure if that is why my flash stopped popping up after only two weeks, but it did. Since the camera was only purchased weeks ago, I opted to exchange it for a new one of the same model. Let's see what happens...

Good overall but poor cold weather performance

Have had this camera for 3 months. I have taken it on a number of ski trips which was one of my intended uses for this particular camera. I keep the camera in an inside pocket to keep it warm. Within a few minutes of exposing it to cold temperatures it stops working giving a low battery signal and retracting the lens. I have never had this experience with any of my other cameras including an SD 800 IS which uses the same battery. I am contacting Canon to find out what the problem is as The battery seems to have appropriate voltage. this is disappointing because otherwise I find this to be an exceptional point in shoot camera. Exposure evening complicated lighting situations has been excellent. As has been the auto focus. The HD video is spectacular although shooting in slow-motion mode requires significantly more light than you may find indoors. Shutter lag seems about the same as I have encountered in other point and shoot cameras.

Purchased unit in February and have used it extensively since then on travel, family and macro. As good as it is overall, it's highest/best use may be macro. Wide open it does a fantastic job in general shooting and outstanding on macro (down to one inch). Note to others who have had lens problems - The S100 has a recall program to correct the lens sticking issue. Mine was returned in very short order and has worked fine since. Night shooting is another area of excellence that I have enjoyed. Cons include the well known battery insufficiency (turn the GPS off and leave it off!), needs practice to make good use of features and does not come with a case or manual. I carry it in a very small zip lock snack baggy when in my pocket or backpack to ward off lint/dust/water/whatever and it works great. It's not a DSLR but it doesn't need to be, it IS quite good and the perfect pocket companion if you understand photography. Needs two things: First is more rapid, continuing development by Canon on software/features and, if it gets that, it will solve the second need - improved value equation.

Love this Camera

I am one of those old fossils who swore she'd never buy a digital camera. However, after much research, I finally decided on the Canon S100 and it was probably one of the best decisions I've ever made! I love this camera and cannot believe the photos I've taken. I have not been brave enough to try the manual functions yet, but the photos I've gotten from the Auto mode are absolutely unbelievable. I am amazed at the quality of photos, ease of use, and beauty of the S100. The people at the camera store set up everything for me, so all I've had to do is go out and shoot photos and install the software in my computer. I just finished downloading my first set of photos to my MacBook and it was very easy to follow the directions to do this. I took the other reviewers' advice and bought an extra battery to take along on photo shoots. I am very pleased with this camera and have been having so much fun with it. I can't wait to start using the manual functions, but so far, the auto mode has been perfectly acceptable. I don't plan to use the video, but one never knows. After all, I never thought I'd be raving about a digital camera!!
