Think about real world: who needs more than 2 mega pixels ?
Recommend this product?
Unless you're into printing your pictures (and you've got the printer for it), DSCs are about storing/viewing pics on a PC, and sending pictures thru the web, and 2 megapixels is about as good as it gets in today's world.
If you're into playing around with 1Mb+ pictures, good for you.
This said, the S100 (or Ixus V as it is called in some countries) is a very good DSC if you are into point-and-shoot pics.
Picture quality is good, let's you choose between 3 resolution modes, fits in a jeans pocket.
Build quality feels robust, the paint at the corners of the case wears out pretty quick however.
Menus are kind of awkward to navigate, something Canon has improved in the latest model they released.
The battery indicator is a total joke, no way to know what your battery level is when leaving in the morning, and the thing warns you about 5 minutes before dying on you. Sony DSCs with their Infolithium give an estimate of projected battery life in MINUTES. Probably the biggest weakness of this camera.
Bundled software is okay, but the most practical way (if you use a laptop) to get your pics is probably to buy a PCMCIA compact flash adapter so that you can xfer your pictures without going through one of these album mgt softwares which seem only good at creating garbage on your harddrive.
The photostitch application allows to make pretty stunning panoramas in a snap.
Amount Paid (US$): 500
