The Canon PowerShot S100 is one of the top high-end compact cameras right now and probably the best current camera that actually fits in your pocket. The S100 is especially good for serious photographers who want a pocket camera that provides excellent image quality and lots of control.

Because it’s such a sweet pocket camera, I was pleased when Thien posted his S100 user review. It’s a good review and it gives me a chance to highlight a really nice camera.

One of the main features I look for in my cameras is the amount of manual control. As I’ve grown in the hobby and understand what it all means, I’ve wanted more and more control, and the S100 has it all… (read more)
