Canon PowerShot S100 Digital Camera Review

Improves on the S95 and takes its place at the top of the point-and-shoot food chain.

$399.00 at Amazon


Canon's PowerShot S100 succeeds the S95, a high performance model that many consider to be the best deal in the ultracompact market. The latest iteration of this popular point-and-shoot offers more refinement than reinvention, though that's hardly a bad thing in today's saturated market. Most notably, the S95's old CCD has been replaced with a 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, and GPS functionality has also been added.
