Digital Camera Resource Page Reviews the Canon Powershot S100

"As you can see, the PowerShot S100 got a bump in resolution, zoom power, and continuous shooting performance -- plus it now has a GPS receiver. The S100 retains the compact metal body and customizable lens ring of its predecessor, plus full manual controls (with RAW support), an HDR mode, and larger-than-average sensor. The PowerShot S95 was one of my favorite cameras from last year. Will the same be true for the S100? Find out now in our review!"

The S100 is a nice upgrade from the S95, unlike the S95 itself, which was a small bump in terms of specs from the original S90. The 24mm equivalent wide-angle is a highlight for me, and the images have a smoother look to them compared to its CCD predecessor. All-in-all, I think this is the small compact camera to beat.

Canon Releases Powershot S100 and SX40 HS

"Today, we've got a pair of Canon point-and-shoots to show you. The S100 is the successor to the highly regarded S95, while the SX40 HS takes on the super-zoom market with its 35x lens. Both cameras use the company's new DIGIC 5 image processor, which brings high-speed burst shooting and 1080p video to the party."

Canon has launched a pair of high-end compacts, both of which are upgrades to popular cameras. The S100 is an update to the S95, which features a new 12 megapixel CMOS sensor which is made in-house by Canon, a new 5x optically stabilised 24-120mm equivalent f/2.0-5.9 lens, and now offers 1080p video at 24 FPS. The LCD is the same 3" HVGA affair, as is the wonderful front control ring, but the new version also adds GPS and a high speed movie mode (not too different from the HS line of compacts. It can also do a burst of 8 shots at 9.6 FPS. Available in November for US$440, in both titanium (yuck) and classic black. Check out DPReview's preview as well!

The SX40 HS has a pretty amazing 35x optically stabilised 24-840mm f/2.7-5.8 lens, a 12 megapixel CMOS sensor, a 2.7" articulated LCD, and 1080p videos at 24 FPS. The camera can also do the same high speed videos as implied by the HS moniker, and like the S100, features an 8 shot burst mode, but at a higher 10 FPS. Available in late September for US$440.

Nikon Announces Six Coolpix Cameras

Posted by Lee Yuan Sheng in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 09:34 AM

Nikon has announced a whole bunch of cameras, starting with the Coolpix P7100. Following up on the not-very-successful P7000, the new camera features the same 10 megapixel CCD (at a slightly larger 1/1.7" size) and optically stabilised 7.1x 28-200mm equivalent f/2.8-5.6 lens, but updates the body styling to include a countered handgrip and a front command dial and a tilting 3" VGA LCD. More importantly, Nikon promises improved performance with the camera, which really was the P7000's main problem. Other features like 720p video and a hotshoe are still present. Retails for US$500 in September. More cameras after the break!
