I think Canon releasing the s100 with Digic 5 is an early signal to say our new waves of DSLR are on the way soon. I think the main reason that the s100 has been annoucned first is because with holiday season appraoching this is a camera that would appeal for that market. So it needs it to be out there first, whereas the Pro DSLR are not seasonal products.

It just lets everyone else know that we know your anxious but they are coming. Also the the Hollywood event in November should be interseting could be the 5D MKIII release that is geared for video?

IMO, definitely a worthwhile upgrade for my S95.  I'll be ordering one when they become available!

What it does raise an interesting question about is a G13 - The S and G series have after all shared sensors.

What I am also wondering about is whether we will see built in GPS coming to more Canon cameras.  That will be interesting to see.

I'd bet the G13 (will they name a camera -13?) would have the same sensor, if/when it comes, and built-in GPS.  Probably a new lens, too - 24-168, perhaps?

I'm hoping we start to see the built-in GPS in dSLRs, at least the 1-series if not lower bodies.

Amazon has the pre-order up:

http://www.amazon.com/Canon-PowerShot-S100-Digital-Stabilized/dp/B005MTME3U/ref=sr_1_1?m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&s=photo&ie=UTF8&qid=1316117726&sr=1-1

Gotta love the usual UK ripoff - £439.00 ($700) to buy the same camera in Britain.  Granted that includes 20% sales tax - so the equilvalent of $560

Just got a delivery estimate from Amazon for the S100 (black) I pre-ordered of October 4-12

Yep, if I place the S100 in my cart and go to check out it estimates the delivery date to be Oct. 5-13.

mrbill, Amazon doesn't usually collect taxes on the items they sell in the US, so that really is a huge difference.

Not only cost, as Amazon.uk states, "This item is due to be released on November 25, 2011," and like the previous poster, I got an email from Amazon (US) estimating delivery the second week in October.

Still don't have the one I pre-ordered.  Amazon still shows delivery by 10/19, although it seems they're no longer taking pre-orders.

I went through the manual briefly and noticed that the number of pictures on a single charge is only 200
my last p/s dates back to 2004 so I don't know if this number is normal or not but it does seem a bit low

what is the average number of shots for a normal or high end p/s
for those who owned the s90/95 what did you get out of it on a single charge?

The S95 is also rated for 200 shots.  The S100 uses a battery with a slightly larger capacity, so presumably it does use a bit more power to get those 200 shots.

yes, in the mean time I checked the online manual for the s95 but my real question is for those who have used this camera, what is your "actual" number of shots from a single charge, has it ever been a limmiting factor (that would require a spare battery)

It's hard to say. I do have an S95, and I've only drained the battery to the red once.  That was no where near 200 shots, but as I stated, it's tough to evaluate. First, all manufacturers overstate battery life when compared to real world performance. Second, usage pattern matters - going out and shooting 200 shots at a time is not common, I expect. More commonly, one would go out and shoot a few dozen shots, again a day or a few days later, etc.  Personally, I do have 2 batteries and I swap them out frequently. The time I nearly ran out of power, I had grabbed the camera when I was running late, and it had sat unused for a couple of weeks after a day or two of use, and I neglected to swap in the fully-charged battery.  Li-ion batteries self-discharge, so a few days drops the charge level several percent.  If you get in the habit of charging after every shooting day, I think you'd be fine.
