Engadget Summary

The PowerShot S100 is one of the best ultra-compact cameras ever made, and includes full manual controls, HD video, GPS, and a longer lens than its predecessor. Just be prepared to pack a spare battery if you're planning a big outing. While the S100's original price of over $400 may have been steep for a point-and-shoot, it's now available for as little as $240, making it a bargain compared to other high-end compacts, such as Sony's $650 Cyber-shot DSC-RX100, not to mention its Wi-Fi and touchscreen-equipped offspring, the S110, which is now available for $399.
