I always buy an extra battery for any camera I own. It just seems like must to me!

i agree! that and a memory card...you can never have enough of both...sucks to have a battery die out while out on a shoot..

Truth. Got my wife an SD600 with extra battery and card when she was going to Jordan and Egypt. Of course the spare SD card was too much to carry, so, you guessed it, last full day - at the Pyramids - she filled the 2 GB card in the camera (not helped in the least by accidentally setting it into video mode any number of times) early in the day.

I was lucky - got a demonstrator SD990 and they'd pulled a spare battery for it rather than use the one in the box, so I have 2 batteries for that (and the SX230, which uses the same battery, so actually I could call it 2 spares for the SX230). If I pick up an S100, same battery there too, which is an incentive. I can pass the SX230 on to my wife. Slap a 32 GB SDHC in there and she'll run out of batteries first.

oh man..that sucks..i was gonna mention..especially when you're shooting at a place where you can't get any spares...
i learned first hand with the S100 when i got it 2 weeks ago that the battery doesn't last long...it died on me after just a few shots and a couple of short videos when i went out to test it...i also read that most people are averaging around 200 shots on a full battery? either way..i now have 3 batteries :)

Don't forget video will kill the battery .

So will the GPS, especially in logger mode. Found this out the hard way on the wife's 230SX with GPS. Had to recharge the battery every night without fail if she planned to use it the next day.

Yes, got one extra battery in case i want to use the GPS or do video for a while.

Though I should be OK in my "normal" use.

I always have an extra. Oddly the one from a camera that I have that is 5 years old is exactly the same model, I didn't use that camera much and the battery pack still holds a decent charge! I only use that one around the house though I wouldn't trust it for vacation type use.

I bought a spare battery and luckily I did. With my old Canon SD1000, I didn't need to buy a spare battery but the S100 goes through it.

I just posted my review too - http://www.1kindphotog​raphy.com ...lingtek-powwer-nb-5l.htmlexternal link

Yes, go to the Camera Settings menu and open the GPS Settings sub-menu.

Talking of such; what's the little bit of rubbery stuff in the battery door for? It doesn't slide but does pop open and reveals the battery below. Are Canon expecting us to work this thing so damn hard the battery needs a blow hole? !!

:lol:

This is actually for powering the camera via an AC adapter. You have a "fake" battery that goes into the battery slot like a normal battery, then you open up the hole in the battery door and plug a pin into the bottom of the "fake" battery which provides power to the camera from the AC adapter.

Ah! Thanks for that. I didn't know. Not got one with any other of my G12/G9. Never had an S-series Canon before as all my Canon kit are the 1-series door stops ...

I only found out about it when I was looking for a way to continuously power my s95 from the car cigarette lighter :)

I only have one battery for the S100.

I have 6 for my T1i and 4 for my 7D. I really only need them when on vacation.

So canon s100 users did anyone of you buy an extra battery for s100
Or you think one battery is ok for you
Don't forget video will kill the battery .
