Thread: X100 Fujifilm Finepix versus S100 Canon PowerShot

    Default X100 Fujifilm Finepix versus S100 Canon PowerShot

    Hi, may I know which camera, between X100 & S100, which would you recommend?

    S100 at least for me.
    Try comparing side by side at dpreview

    There's no real comparison. From usability to interface to sensor size and lens capability they are totally different. If you want something simple that can zoom and take good pics without fuss, S100. If you rally want to learn photography and are ok with a single focal length, X100.

    Hi Rashkae, I am considering the X100 (emotionally inclined) but the sticky aperture issue & $$$ are hard to overcome.. And S100 seems like a more sensible choice.

    Basically those two are very different camera. The X100 had bigger sensor, prime lens and hybrid viewfinder. The S100 is actually an advance PnS...
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    You really can't compare the 2, it's apple and oranges. One is a modern rangefinder, the other is a good point-and-shoot.

    Thanks all for your advice... Seems like x100 has many technical issues (stuck pixels, sticky aperture blades, autofocusing...). Would you still recommend it?

    Hi Jacoblenin , as this thread is in newbies corner, i assume u as a beginner , please bear in mind that there is no auto mode in fuji x100 and the menu/layout could be quite confusing for beginner as well ..I suggest you to wait for the new x10 which is cheaper, zoom lens, better sensor than canon s100, better built quality (overall better than canon). Amazon UK mentioned it will available in november. Gud luck with your choice.

    Plenty of options, but X100 and S100 is an unfair comparison.
    X100 is ~$1.5k with larger APS-C sensor with associated benefits.
    S100 is an advanced pns.

    There are also LX5, XZ-1, Pentax Q and m4/3 cameras with pancake lenses to consider.

    Decide what you want in the camera before spending your money.

    Hey everyone, I was at the Harvey Norman sale at the expo, S95 selling at $499, includes camera bag, 8g sd card, PLUS additional battery! Very tempted to get that instead of x10 or s100!

    Isn't that the normal pricing? hmmm

    Perhaps Canon S100 should be considered next to a Fujifilm X10, as a more appropriate and closer comparison?

    I forgot to add that they were giving away a DVD player with every purchase...

    @geihou: yeah I'm waiting to get either s100 or the x10 now
