Canon PowerShot S100 with DIGIC 5
The Canon PowerShot S100 digital camera features the most powerful implementation of the Canon HS System yet. Building on the Canon PowerShot S-series’ reputation for providing high-quality, low noise photos in low light, the enhanced HS System optimally combines DIGIC 5 processing with a high-sensitivity 12.1 Megapixel 1/1.7-type CMOS developed using Canon EOS image sensor know-how - providing an even more powerful basis for low light digital photography. The Canon PowerShot S100 camera supports a maximum ISO of 6400 at full resolution, the Canon camera fully-utilises the high performance of the CMOS sensor and the power of DIGIC 5 to reduce image noise - offering the reassurance of excellent picture quality in all conditions.
Canon DIGIC 5
Designed to achieve new and advanced levels of image quality, Canon DIGIC 5 analyses four times more picture information to create each pixel, recording more detail and colour from a scene than ever seen before. Processing speed is also six times faster compared to the previous processor, efficiently managing the increase in scene information and simultaneously reducing the appearance of image noise by up to 75%.
