I want one but I would like to see what others say about it. I get mixed messages from different people.
Also I am open to other cameras in this price range. the features that I'm looking for are...
usb, rechargeable batteries, 2 mpixcle, at least 2x optical zoom that takes good pictures.
Well, to copy what someone told me, it doesn't matter how great the camera is if its not on you when you want to take a picture.
Plus, given how any camera you buy will always be obsolete in a year, get one thatís small. Size is never obsolete. Thatís why I like ultraportable laptops. No matter what, theyíre always mobile.
Iíd say if you want point and shoot, you canít lose with the S100. You wonít miss those extra pixels. In my opinion, cameraís donít have enough pixels yet to print.
Thus 2 megapixels is fine. Youíll get great 800x600 photos. In my opinion, although 2 megapixels is enough resolution to print, b/c of the way the ccd works, you need 3 times as many pixels to get the color depth, sharpness and realism. Thus 6 megapixels to print a decent 5x7. Just look at a 1600x1200 on your monitor, it looks fuzzy and blurry. Shrink it to 800x600, and it looks great.
