Canon Powershot S100 Review

The Canon Powershot S100 “Elph” camera, is the most compact digital camera that Canon has produced and one of the smallest ‘Mega Pixel’ digital cameras on the market. Inside the stainless steel body is a 2.1 Mega Pixel CCD which can produce image sizes large enough to print 8 x 10inch photographic prints.

A 2x low distortion optical zoom lens is provided. The automatic focus system features light assisted focusing which allows it to focus even in very low light situations. With built in automatic flash the S100 is a great point and shoot camera.

Movie recording ability is not available on the Canon S100, and although a high speed USB interface is provided for downloading images quickly from the camera to a computer, no serial port support available for those who don’t have access to a USB connection.

The camera uses Compact Flash memory fully compatible with both Mac and PC platforms.
