The S100 is a superb low-light performer and comes equipped with an ultra wide and bright 24mm f/2.0 lens with 5 x optical zoom.

As well as great stills, the Canon PowerShot S100 can record full 1080p HD video with stereo sound, making it an exceptional pocket-sized imaging tool. More
High-sensitivity 12.1 MP Canon CMOS sensor

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.

So much camera in your pocket
About Me Casual user, Getting started, Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Comments about Canon PowerShot S100 Silver Digital Camera:
A compact and light camera with proper controls if you want them. I'm starting to learn how to photograph all over again. Memories of learning on my first Praktica SLR, f numbers, depth of field, shutter speed. But this is so portable and the picture quality so much better.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Compact and well built
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
See all my reviews
Useful compact camera with high build quality. Pocketable with easy controls if you are used to a Canon compact menu structure.Having read reviews I had expected great results, having had an earlier S model that really did the business in picture quality.Although the video is good the picture quality leaves something to be desired with heavy blurring in distance shots at anything near full telephoto lens position. Good for close ups but lacks detail for landscape shots in anything other than ideal, bright conditions.Disappointed overall.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
