Just in time for your holiday shopping, we’ve posted two new hands on reviews. First up is Canon’sPowerShot S100. This pocket-powerhouse builds on the extremely popular PowerShot S95 from last year with some hefty upgrades that are sure to make just about any user smile; whether you’re a noob or a pro. This one is packed with Canon’s newer HS (High Sensitivity) system, which boasts a 12-megapixel CMOS image sensor, DIGIC 5 processor (6x more powerful than DIGIC 4), and a fast f/2.0 lens (at wide angle). The zoom range has been extended from 3.8 x to 5x, and Canon has even added built-in GPS. All of this is still packed in a pocket-sized shell that is now available in Silver and Black. For more details, check out our Canon PowerShot S100 review.
Next up we have Samsung’s brand new MV800. This camera takes their Dual-View line to a new level, with a new label to boot. The MV800 is the first of a new series of Multi-View cameras from Samsung, that offer the same great versatility of a front facing LCD that was so popular on their Dual-View cameras; but with a slight twist. Instead of having a LCD mounted on the front, this model uses a single 3.0-inch display mounted on a hinge that lets you easily flip it up for a front facing viewfinder. From there, the camera works much like past models. The MV800 also boasts their newer app style GUI, with a nice touch screen interface that will make smart phone users feel right at home.
