No 720p 60fps? I don't care about slow motion at lower resolutions, they are useless, but 720p 60fps would be great :(

Interesting to see that the Digic V in the 12MP S100 allows it to take 2.3fps vs the 0.9 fps of the Digic IV in the 10MP S95

Cant wait to see what it (or even 2 of them) can do in an SLR  :)

How much of that is Digic V, and how much is the sensor itself?  CMOS sensors read out faster than CCD sensors.

When did 24mm became *ultra*-wide ?
Since the zooms on compact / P&S cameras are quite often around 34 - 38mm equivalent.

About Digic 5: just as for instance all intel i5's are not created equal, you should IMHO look at Digic 5 as a generation of processors. But it is good to see some [well actually a lot] of change for the good.
And apparently this site got it right: there is a new S, but not a new G.

One [undoubtedly stupid] question: what does HS stand for?

I thought that was Canon's code for a backlit CMOS sensor?

Hybrid Stabilisation.

It is the newest form of Canon's IS technology as introduced by the latest 100L macro lens.

I couldn't believe what a world of difference IS made when we got our first A series with it.  HS sounds yummier :)

where is teh direct print button????

Says it can be re-purposed.

Who direct prints?  ;D

Ummmm...no. You're referring to Hybrid IS (H-IS) in the 100L Macro, which corrects for angular motion like traditional IS, and for translational shift. There is no system in PowerShots that corrects for translational shift.

HS = high-sensitivity, and refers to the combination of sensor technology and Digic image processing that allows for cleaner (relatively, at least) shots in low light conditions.

Indeed, good point.  This may be a stupid question (im not afraid to ask), but in the end were there any real benefits of CCD over CMOS i know there were supposedly in the early days, but what about in recent times?  i assume Canon would have stuck with CCD if there were so maybe ive answered my own question.

I think the S100's macro/hybrid IS mode is designed to correct for shift-type camera shake.

CCDs don't suffer from the "rolling shutter" problem that CMOS does because of the we it reads out the pixels. It also is suppose to have high image quality but I'm not sure how true that is anymore. CCDs also use a lot more power than CMOS does and are more expensive.

That's basically it. I'm sure others have more info.

Apologies - you are correct.  Sorry for not checking my facts.  The S95 does, indeed, have hybrid IS. 

But still, HS is something different.
