Very good product for its size. Not much control but for what I have used it for it has performed very well. (preview shots for 35mm camera work and for point and shoot snapshots.

Strengths: Small size that you can carry it everywhere.
Weaknesses: Little battery charge duration, weak flash produces low quality indoor shots. Battery takes too long to charge and an extra battery is expensive. Also the AC adapter is very expensive (1 extra battery + 1 AC adapter = 50% the price of a new S100)
Photoshop is a must have so you can fine tune the pictures, specially the ones taken at night/indoor which are always dark.
Price Paid: $320.00

This camera is an excellent camera for it's size!! I have used this camera snowboarding, hiking, fishing, going to see live music, etc, etc. for the past few years. With it's size the camera has no limits.
One downfall is battery life. Although, there is an easy fix, buy another.
With this camera, an extra battery, 128mb flash card, computer, and Photoshop 6.0 you are ready to start archiving the world!

Strengths: Size, compact and light
Ease to use
Strong rechargeable batteries.
Weaknesses: Opening and closing of the lens.
This is an exceptional camera for many reasons. Because of its size, I carry it with me all the time and have shot photos that I would have missed otherwise. I have taken over 3200 shots in a year and a half. It is very easy to use. Infact, I have given it to my nieces ages 7 & 9 and have been very happy with the results.
