The Canon PowerShot S100 digital camera has more than just 12.1 megapixels and a DIGIC 5 image processor. It also comes with a built in GPS with image location tagging! Kevin Pereira and Candace Bailey take a look at the S100 for Gadget Pr0n.
What You Need To Know
The PowerShot S100 digital camera is pretty powerful and shares a lot with the S95.
This camera is slightly smaller and weighs only 0.4 lbs.
The build quality is excellent and features a 3" LCD screen.
There's also a full size HDMI port.
What's really amazing is that the camera allows you to shoot in the jpeg and RAW format.
The new lens can zoom in 5x instead of only 3.8 (like the last PowerShot camera).
The ring around the base can be set to change a multitude of manual settings.
The optics have been improved and more light is allowed with an f/2.0 aperture.
The aperture closes as the camera is zoomed so at full zoom, the aperture closes all the way down to F5.8.
There are also 7 different stabilizer modes that the camera automatically chooses.
The camera can shoot 1080p video which is easy to do, thanks to a dedicated button that Canon has started to add to their cameras.
Instead of having to change the shooting mode, you can just hit the button.
You can also zoom while shooting video.
The video looked sharp and clear and we liked how smoothly it adjusted to low light.
Colors did come off as a bit over-saturated.
There is also a slow motion playback setting.
The GPS tagging lets you know where photos were taken.
The photos looked great: a lot of customization allows you to shoot great photos.
There was little noise and high contrast, and vibrant colors even in low light.
Outside photos showed a lot of detail for a camera of this size.
The camera's macro setting lets you focus on an object as close as 3 cm to the lens.
