In addition to the Canon HS SYSTEM, the combination of the advanced CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor in the PowerShot S100 makes it possible to shoot crisp, clear high definition video. Imagine the fun and excitement of being able to shoot spectacular 1080p Full HD video with stereo sound that you can later watch on your HDTV or download to your computer to share with family and friends. In addition to being able to shoot Full HD 1080p video at 24* frames per second, the PowerShot S100 can also shoot 720p HD video at 30** frames per second.
*Actual frame rate is 23.976 fps.
**Actual frame rate is 29.97 fps.
Dedicated Movie Button, Wind filter feature and Optical Zoom for easy video capture
It's never been easier to shoot videos with a PowerShot digital camera. The PowerShot S100 has a dedicated movie button that lets you start and stop recording instantly. There is no need to go through layers of menus or operate switches or dials to switch to and from video recording mode. The camera is always ready to shoot stills or video whenever you want. The PowerShot S100 also incorporates an electronic wind filter, which suppresses wind noise that can muffle or distort the sound. And unlike less sophisticated point-and-shoot cameras, the PowerShot S100 lets you use the full range of optical zoom when you're shooting a video.
HDTV Playback via HDMI with CEC Support
It's easy to enjoy and share the videos you shoot with the PowerShot S100. Simply connect its HDMI terminal to your HDTV using an HDMI cable. And because the PowerShot S100 supports HDMI-CEC technology, you'll be able to control the playback of your images and videos on any CEC-enabled HDTV using the TV's remote control. (CEC - Consumer Electronic Control - is part of the HDMI specification, enabling components in a system to communicate with one another.)
iFrame Movie Support
With the PowerShot S100, you can also shoot video in the Apple™ iFrame format, which is a computer-friendly standard that speeds up importing and editing of videos. It keeps file sizes small, making it more convenient to upload or e-mail high-quality videos. The iFrame format enjoys native support in compatible Mac and Windows video applications, making it unnecessary to perform time-consuming and often quality-degrading conversions.
Crappiest Powershot ever
Overpriced and poor replacement to the S95. Three product advisories issued w/in one year of camera release. Lens wouldnt retract after several months. Canon really has dropped the ball on this line and lost a lot of fans of their Powershot series. Much better options out there ..

Lens Flaw Ruins Otherwise Great Camera
I purchased this camera in December 2011 and have used it for thousands of pictures and for HD video. Picture and video quality is superb. It is my "go to" camera for traveling light applications.
Unfortunately . . . the lens jammed in June 2012. Two week repair plus shipping and insurance. Lens jammed again in June 2013. Back to the shop hoping the warranty will be honored. Had to buy a replacement as I use the camera almost daily in my business.
I can not recommend this camera.

Great looking camera, but the User Guide is awful. So little real information on how to use this new camera of mine. I want my old camera back!
