i bought the S100 in October and was immediately disappointed. White balance was terrible and battery life was awful. i bought a s95 refurb with spare battery a couple weeks ago for over $100 less and have been overwhelmingly impressed. Soo pleased with it. only thing that i wish i had that the S100 had was the dedicated video button and the 95 video streaks in lights. but then again, the 95 doesnt make constant noises on the video like the 100 did.
i primarily need this camera for low light in bars and clubs for work so this is where its at.
but, between the two, the rumours are all true. i hemmed and hawed over this for a long time waiting for newer potentially better models. wished id just paid the 400 2 years ago
