There is a new Canon baby in town! Seriously, I'm rethinking my future G12 purchase because of the just released S100. According to Digital Photography's Review:
The S100 is in effect a whole new camera compared to the S95; almost every key feature has been upgraded or updated:
Frankly, I don't care about the built-in GPS tracker but I do care about its high sensitivity' CMOS sensor in the 1/1.7" format. This feature allowed Canon to increased s100's ISO to 6400! Wow lang.
- 24-120mm (equivalent) lens range, F2.0-5.9, built-in neutral density filter
- 12.1 MP 1/1.7" Canon CMOS sensor
- DIGIC 5 image processor
- ISO 80-6400
- 2.3 fps continuous shooting (9.6 fps for 8 frames in High-Speed burst mode)
- Full HD (1080p24) movie recording; H.264 compression, MOV format
- Optical zoom in movie mode
- Super slow motion movie recording (640 x 480 @ 120fps, 320 x 340 @ 240 fps)
- Direct movie record button
- Built-in GPS unit with image tagging and logger functions
On the other hand, this baby also looks smashing!
G12 has officially been ousted as the replacement for my 3-1/3-year-old Canon Ixy point and shoot. I never wanted those fancy schmancy DSLRs so I'm quite happy that Canon released these 2 new digital compact cameras. The only problem now is what exactly to choose. But first, must make a pros and cons list.
