Canon’s cameras rose to great popularity with the immense success of the Canon S95 model camera. Now S95 has a better and more capable successor –Canon Powershot S100 digital camera.  S100 is a simple point-and-shoot camera allowing the user to control everything manually. It has a solid but light body which also makes it highly portable. Powershot S100 also features wide aperture.

Anybody interested in cameras knows that S95 became famous for its awesome image quality not to mention the f2.0 aperture and HD video recording capability. Canon S100 is a bit more advanced than its predecessor, sporting full HD 1080p video recording capability, wider aperture, amazing image quality, higher optical zoom etc. It also incoprorates GPS technology.

Key Features of Canon Powershot S100:

  • 1/1.7 inch Sensor size

  • 12.1 mp CMOS sensor

  • 24 – 120 mm focal length

  • Image Stabilizer

S95 had a CCD Sensor, but Powershot S100 has a CMOS sensor which is much better. A light body with a smooth matte finish is bit rougher in the S100, compared to its predecessor.

Canon Powershot S100 features a dedicated video capture button. The Ring function button is positioned perfectly, making it more comfortable and easy to use. This button can also be used as a delete button. With the built-in GPS module, the users will be able to tag the location to the captured images soon after capturing it. However, the GPS module linking with the satellites from your camera, takes a lot of juice.

Thus the users have to configure the GPS settings accordingly, so as to reduce the battery drain. To adjust the shutter speed, use the small dial at the back and to adjust aperture, use the ring, in Manual Mode. The S100 supports continuous shooting to up to 3 Frames per second and is pretty fast, as it requires only about 1.5 seconds, becoming functional, from the OFF state.

You will see that the captured images have awesome quality even at environments with low light. Canon Powershot S100 hasn’t been officially released yet in many countries. So its price details in India is not available as of now.
