Product Features
  • High-sensitivity 12.1-megapixel 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 24 mm 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.
  • 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.
  • Full HD movies, HDMI-CEC

  • 3.0" PureColor II G LCD

Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewVery Good

  • THE GOOD

    "A great little camera with advanced features, the Canon PowerShot S100 builds on the strengths of its excellent predecessor."

  • THE BAD

    "As a trade-off for extending the zoom range to 5x the lens' aperture narrows very quickly as you zoom out. And there's no improvement over the S95's so-so performance, despite the price increase."

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    The Canon PowerShot S100 is a generally great little camera for advanced shooters who don't mind slowing down a bit from a dSLR.

Great little camera IF it works.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Canon PowerShot S100 12.1 MP Digital Camera - Black

The GOOD: Good image quality, very compact, yet decent zoom/range, reasonably fast auto-focus and lack of shutter lag (compared to my several year old Olympus P&S, altho not my dSLR), relatively large sensor, ability to shoot RAW.

The BAD: The "lens error" issue; which can occur almost immediately in a humid environment, even when it was working fine at home--then you're stuck with a useless apparatus while on your vacation--happened to me.

The UGLY: Although Canon will repair the above at no cost, it applies only to the serial numbers they designated as problematic. Mine was a later # and Canon would not promise to repair for free--I could send it in and be charged for it! Not the way to stand behind your product.

For the price, excellent value, and I hope to use it for a long time.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I think this is a fabulous little camera. The picture quality - in terms of color, focus and distortion - is noticeably better than my SD 870 elph.

I've used digital SLRs in the past, and I like that this camera has a lot of the same features - it gives me more flexibility and helps me take creative pictures I wouldn't otherwise be able to take.

Also, the low-light sensitivity is really good. I usually shoot in either AV or TV modes and I'm impressed by how it can capture very nice shots without the flash. In fact, the only time I've really found myself using the flash is for fill to light up peoples faces on sunny days.

I liked the notion of the ring around the lens, but, in reality, I haven't used it.

I also think it stinks that the time-lapse video is only accessible in the "model" mode where it makes at least 1/2 of the frame out of focus. Canon must have been smoking crack to not allow the choice to make the whole frame in focus.

However, I have had fun playing with the high-speed (slow motion) video mode. It's a really neat feature to include, but, unfortunately, the resolution is quite reduced. Unlike the time-lapse gripe, I can't really hold Canon's feet to the fire for this, because it's such a unique feature in a small camera, and I'm sure they had all sorts of processing, storage and imaging limitations to deal with. The time-lapse gripe is just a stupid oversight; they've broken it by going through the trouble of making a "feature" - the artificial blurry parts!

Great picture taking camera at a small size, yet professional grade.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Canon PowerShot S100 12.1 MP Digital Camera - Black

This is a professional quality picture taking camera at a small price. I purchased this camera for skiing. I have a professional Canon, but too large to lug around the mountain.
The S100 can do it all, it can take a nice quality picture and video. The controls are easy to use and you have multiple options for the controls.

The camera is a size that it can fit nicely in my chest pocket and pull it out for pictures easy. It also has a nice size lanyard for your wrist and making it secure.

The zoom is quick and very responsive and easy to use to focus. Depending on what you are shooting there are a lot of pre-set conditions for all types of pictures. You just have to take some time reading the manual and finding out where all the funtions are.

I have not been outside yet with the camera, the weekend I got it, I also got a cold and the cold beat me up. I will use this soon and from everything I have seen and used inside so far is such a pleasure.

I am just amazed at the size, options and quality of the pictures. One of the first pictures I took was a miniture rose bush that I got my wife for Valentine's Day. I showed my wife the picture and she thought it was from my large Canon. She was totally surprised when I told her it was from the new small camera.

I am excited with the new purchase and look forward in taking a lot of pictures in the future. Especially on the slopes, will be the primary use at first this winter.

I love it so far and the reviews I read don't do it justice. An incredible small camera with big positive picture taking.

Compared to the little Vivitar I have been using for the skiing pictures, this new one is not even in the same league. The sample shots have been amazing.

Buy this, a sweet Class 10 SDXC card, and 2-3 batteries; then LOVE it!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Canon PowerShot S100 12.1 MP Digital Camera - Black

I very much like this camera. Takes great photos, the flash is more powerful than I thought it would be, and with the larger sensor size it gives you more flexibility to NOT use the flash in many situations.

The only weakness is the battery life. Buy yourself 2 or 3 batteries because this boy chews through them like butter. Well worth it though with the cameras features, speed, and quality in my opinion.
