With all the hype surrounding today's announcements in Hollywood, the availability of the Canon Powershot S100 was overshadowed. These cameras are wiped out of stock from B&H Photo very quickly, and there's one on Amazon going for a higher marked up price. Checking over on eBay there's a few more listings, also some marked up prices. There is of course one New York camera store offering it for the MSRP price tag, and is also throwing in a 20 piece kit of random goodies like SDHC cards, Card Readers, Camera strap, etc.

I'm already dead set on this camera since playing with the previous Canon S95 and have already placed my order (ready to replace my GF1). I anticipate this camera will be out of stock before the weekend, unless you're willing to pay above MSRP prices. Check out the seller (click here).

[Update] That seller is sold out, but there's still a few at different prices following the link.

Canon just recently announced the upgrade to the popular Canon S95 and SX30IS, replacing them with the new Canon S100 and Canon SX40IS. These are two very popular cameras with features like full manual controls, 1080HD Video, Shoot in RAW, and can zoom from 24mm-840mm (35x). There's already an Amazon page dedicated to each camera with a full breakdown of features including information about the new CMOS and Digic 5 image processor.

The Digic 5 processor is said to be 6x times faster with 75% less noise than the Digic 4. The ability to auto white balance has also been greatly improved. Umm hold on, was that 75% less noise? Those numbers are a major improvement. Think of this as a sneak peek to what we'll be seeing in future DSLRs. Definitely worth the read - found below.
