Weakness:

No 640x480 video mode

I have the Canon Powershot A40, but now its broke, so I did a lot of research for my new camera, based on experience with my first digital camera. The A40 took excelent pictures but had some technical problems from the very start, and having to plug in a USB tiny connector every time I wanted to download pictures was quite iritating. So was the too offen battery change. The limited time of video recording was very iritating too. So my demands was ( in priority ): 1) Docking station ( that disqualifies all Canon cameras ) 2) Unlimited video recording time ( that disqualifies all Canon cameras ) 3) Inexpensive SD card ( that disqualifies all Sony cameras ) 4) Small as possible I made a comparison of picture quality at www.steves-digicams.com where most digital cameras have been tested, and which has photos from all the cameras. Conslusion was, that there was very little difference in picture quality among the compact cameras. Only if you compare the pictures side by side and examine closely you can see a difference - so picture quality is not an issue when choosing a compact camera today - they are all more or less the same in picture quality ( unless you are a photofile ). I ended up with ZZ50,Z55 and S100 was the only cameras fullfilling my demands. I choosed the S100 since it is the smallest - yes there is a difference in picture quality from Z55 to S100 but ist tiny and you wont notice it unless compared isde by side - of cause you compare a 5M with a 3.2M camera. Conclusion: The S100 is a fantastic camera, no complains at all. The docking station is very important to have. Dont buy a camera without docking station. At a price as low as 217 Euro look no further for your compact camera - this is the best one available today. Looking forward to the next model from Casio with 640x480 video recording.
