Replacement for S110
« on: June 28, 2017, 01:44:03 PM »
My wife's trusty S110 died halfway through our vacation  :(
The electronics work fine but the lens won't retract.  Probably some sand in there or else it wore out.
We are looking for a replacement.
We liked the size and build of the S110 (pocketable)
We liked the 24-120 mm (equivalent) field-of-view
I liked f/2 at the short end.  It worked really well for low light.
Being able to shoot raw is a must.  Raw file compatibility with CS6 would be nice.
Suggestions?

Hi AJ!

With these specs and if you're looking for Canon I'd take a look at the
G9 X Mark II (if size matters) or
G7 X Mark II (if you want the best lens)

I cannot say anything about CS6 compatibility.
If you are from the EU it might be interesting that both are in the German Summer cashback promo.
sometimes you have to close your eyes to see properly.

You can use the Adobe DNG converter to convert newer raw files to DNG, which will be compatible with CS6.

Check out if there is a Canon recall (product advisory) on this issue. My S100 had this issue, and I had it happen to me and got it fixed by Canon service for free.
