A co-worker showed me his new solid black S100 P&s yesterday, and some pictures.
What a nice camera, size of a pack of king sized cigarettes but weighty and substantial, as if forged from solid titanium. Pictures are excellent. $400.
Loved it, but as long as 20D's are $150 in nice shape, not for me. I could just see watching it sink to the bottom of the sea.

Adobe has a beta Camera Raw that will process the s100 raw images and they look sweet with that new CMOS sensor.

This is a great little camera. I got it so that I can have a camera that goes every where with me and also to use when scuba diving and its working out great.

Does anyone know how it compares to the camera in the iPhone 4S? Both IQ-wise and video-wise?

outlawyer, I'm with you. The S100 looks nice, but I always carry my Droid with me and I can use that just as well. Give me a good ol' dslr and I'm happy. My T2i is my portable camera. My 1DsIII and 1DIV is when I get serious.

Just stills so far - the S100 wins hands down.

Raw images (matters to people on this board)
Much lower noise
Higher rez
Optical zoom
Real IS

I had the S95 which I gave to my mom because her older P&S died. The S100 is a superb replacement in all respects except the hand strap, which is a pure travesty compared to the old one.

The 20D may be better and cheaper but doesn't quite fit in my pocket or center arm rest in my car (where my P&S spends most of its life).

absolutely my thoughts. I had a s95 briefly. It is markedly better than my Droid, but not enough to warrant bringing another device wherever I go.
