    ★★★ New Canon PowerShot S100! In stock. ★★★

    The Canon S100’s sensor is a 12.1 MP 1/1.7" CMOS sensor which is smaller in size than a APS-C sensor found in many DSLR’s. It does however share some technology;

    > S100 is Canon's first camera to have a DIGIC 5 image processor, which is six times faster than the previous version according to Canon and improves image processing and noise reduction.

    > S100's image sensor is a Canon-made 12.1 MP 'high sensitivity' CMOS sensor in the 1/1.7" format (approx 7.5 x 5.5mm)

    > This new sensor uses technology similar to Canon EOS DSLRs, including an on-chip noise cancellation system and microlenses which improve its light-gathering ability. The resulting images are said to have reduced noise and increased dynamic range.

    > The top ISO has been increased to 6400.

    > A 4-channel set-up improves the continuous shooting rate, up to 2.3 fps.

    > The new sensor also features full HD movie recording at 1920x1080 resolution, with a 24P output frame rate.
