The PowerShot S100 features a 5x Optical Zoom that will appeal to enthusiasts and casual shooters alike. The zoom range starts at 24mm (35mm equivalent) at full wide-angle, providing the coverage needed to capture indoor group photos, tall buildings, and dramatic landscapes. Full telephoto is 120mm (35mm equivalent), providing a versatile range that includes focal lengths perfect for portraits and close-ups.
Bright f/2.0 Lens
A fast f/2.0 maximum lens aperture enhances the camera's ability to capture excellent images in low light, but it also does more. You can shoot professional-looking portraits by taking advantage of shallow depth-of-field to impart a pleasing blur to the background. The large aperture also lets you capture more nuances in dimly lit scenes by making better use of the available light.
