Canon PowerShot S100

A tiny digital camera with a lot of flash and flashy features, the Canon PowerShot S100 Digital Camera is also built to last thanks to its high-quality manufacturing. It is equipped with an outstanding 12.1 MP CMOS sensor as well as a DIGIC 5 Image Processor, which results in very fine image quality.

When you combine an f/2.0-5.9 24-120mm (equivalent) zoom lens with an easy manual-control ring and the wonderfully developed Intelligent IS image stabilization technology with six distinct settings, you have a formula for stunning still photographs and video capture.

There are a number of shooting settings to select from, as well as the option to shoot in both RAW and JPEG formats. When it comes to tiny digital cameras, the S100 offers pretty about everything you could want — and a whole lot more.

Along with the ability to shoot photographs with a sensitivity of up to ISO 6400, the camera has a comprehensive menu that allows you to choose the level of control you desire over exposure, white balance, focus, and other settings.

With the built-in programs, you may create High Dynamic Range, panoramic, fisheye, low-light, and a variety of other specialty photographs on the go.

And you don’t have to limit yourself to still images: you can shoot stunning 1080p HD video with stereo sound at up to 24 frames per second, or 720p video at up to 30 frames per second—even there’s the effect of a miniature that blurs the top and bottom of the video frame, giving your subject the appearance of being miniatures.
