New Canon S100 replaces the S95 (adds CMOS, GPS, 10fps, 1080p)
The replacement to the popular Canon S90 and S95 comes with the just-announced Canon S100! Yes, this is a name collision as there was a Canon Elph S100 a few years ago. Perhaps the namers of this camera thought the "Elph" in the old camera created a distinction or they just forgot of the Elph S100. Regardless, let's not get too senatorial with the name ;-)
The S100 is a new chapter in this series as Canon switches from a 10mp 1/1.7" CCD sensor to a 12mp 1/1.7" CMOS sensor. The switch opens the door to exciting new features such as 10fps burst mode at full speed (buffer of 8), and 1080p video. The CCD sensor "burst mode" was more of a turtle mode, nearly an order of magnitude less!
The lens is a 24-120mm equivalent and starts at f2. The camera adds a GPS unit making it more competitive. Buzz-words include DiGiC V, HS, and such.
It will come out in November for 450 euro in Europe and $430 in the USA (available for pre-order). It will be available in your choice of the usual black or the Elph-ish looking silver.
