Canon PowerShot S100 features : The Canon S100 camera is equipped with a 12.1 Megapixel sensor. The high-sensitivity 1/1.7 type CMOS sensor, developed using Canon EOS SLR sensor know-how, works in combination with the new DIGIC 5 processor to deliver class leading image quality especially at higher ISO speeds and in low light conditions. The Canon HS System is a powerful combination of the DIGIC 5 processor, which is 6x more powerful than DIGIC 4, and a high-sensitivity CMOS image sensor. It lets you shoot with low noise and high image quality even in low light up to ISO 6400 - reducing the need for flash or a tripod.
