2011 Girls’ Generation Tour with Canon Powershot S100 (:

After the madness of clicking, I managed to snag 2 tickets for the show *sayang mouse and fingers* 잘했어요!

Could have gotten better seats but silly me keyed in the wrong expiry date for my credit card and missed the time. Yes. I keyed in the wrong date MANY TIMES and for the ENTIRE holding period (think it was 5 minutes) *stabs self and dies*

Just like my post about SS3 + S95, this post is split into the concert and the camera.

The concert!

지금은 소녀시대!

If you look at the way I shouted and screamed at the concert, you might think that I’m more of a SONE than an ELF >.< Hahaha! Yes, I was screaming my lungs out and dancing and trying to keep up with the fanchant!

fan project.

I was a tad surprised when I saw this and a Yahoo! postcard at my seat. Yes, they are the fan project! While the Yahoo! fan project didn’t really happen, this simple project was rather successful!

Tiffany actually noticed and commented about it during their “pretend” fianl stage.

the “pretend” final stage.

Yes, the “pretend” final stage.

Tiffany was rather funny! She knew that the fans are aware that there’s still 3 encore stages so she asked, “You guys know that this is not our final song, don’t you?”

When the fans screamed yes, she went, “Well, then. This is our “pretend” final song.”

Hahahah! Aww. Like. I love their english too. So polite. Ah, hard to explain!

Genie~

WOOHOO! This has to be one of my favorite stage (: The Genie remix. If you have not seen it, you should! They did the same stage in their Japan concert and at Dream Concert!

Other than that, I rather like Sooyoung’s solo! HOT! She did Salsa (Tango?) to the song, “Sway” (I think). And omona! Her legs! Like!!!

I also like the encore stages (: Oh! too! 😀

Seohyun was the friendliest! Yoona was disappointing cos she was quite standard 😦

I did get a little bored somewhere in the middle (short attention span, yo!) though >.<

Anyways! Overall, I will give it a 5.5/10. On the ranking scale, it rates 2nd (after SS3 and before SHINee). Will I go again if they are back? Well, it will depend on their song list since this concert are mainly old songs.

The camera

Okay. While SS3 don’t allow DSLR, this concert don’t allow photography AT ALL. BAH! But I managed to sneak some shots 😛

I am compliant ok! I followed the old rule – “All media are only allowed to take photos for the 1st three songs.” Heheh.

Anyway, I was sitting at T08 (slightly off center), Row 27 (last row). So I was quite far back. But! I HAD CANON POWERSHOT S100!

Canon Powershot S100

Thanks to Renhao, Ogilvy and Canon, I managed to get my hands on the S100 for the weekend! (:

And the camera didn’t disappoint! It performed rather well! Less pixelation and better sensitivity. HS system rocks! (:

Lookey!

some compression by FB. color adjustment made.

The picture was cropped too! I couldn’t “activate” the digital zoom so I had to crop to make the photo “bigger”. Quite cool that it’s not as pixelated as I thought it would be.

Okay, at this point, I don’t have much to say about the camera. But if you are looking for a camera to bring to concerts/wedding dinners or the like, I think the S100 is a good investment!

If you like to have manual control on your compact (like me), S100 has it! If you are lazy, the Auto mode is pretty trust-able! (: Proof? My mum (who don’t know how to use a compact and is not tech-savvy) took this photo in auto mode –

with siblings for my birthday (:

I was laughing cause every time my mum press the Shutter, her hand will go down too. So, this photo was taken in rather shakey circumstances 😛 But it turned out awesome! And the color is not too bad too (:

Other features include, high speed burst (great for baby photos!)  + Movie Digest (hopefully I can try this out soon!) and  it shoots in *wait for it* RAW! Okay, I have still not reach the high level of shooting in RAW but RAW is good! It allows you to have more control of the control for post-processing! (: And S100 is the first compact to be able to do that! Hoots.

My only qualm with the S100 is that it takes quite a while to process photos after each shot. So there I was, anxious to continue to take the next “sneak” shot at the concert but the camera was still “busy” -.- 어떻게! 어떻게!

And I dont like that the shutter button is made of stainless steel. BOO!

Anyways, Renhao has very kindly helped me got a set for the camera! Yes, I am buying the camera!! So, stay tune as I discover and explore the camera.

Canon Powershot S100 is now out in store at a SRP of $699. 

More pictures of the concert by S100 can be found here. <working to fix the link>

  1. Hey, just wanted to ask if you took any videos from the concert? If you did, would you mind showing them to me? I’m going for a bunch of concerts soon and I’m looking to buy a Canon Powershot S100 to bring along with me and I was wondering if it’s good for video recording. Thanks a bunch!

    • Hi! Sorry, I didnt record any videos from the concert. S100 is definitely good for concerts. I brought the camera to Super Show 4 and another concert and the photos were awesome!

      As for the video quality, it’s quite good! If you would like, I have a video that I can show you on Facebook. Let me know! (:

  2. hi, is it only me or your photos don’t show up?

    do you have any post of ss4 with this camera?

    i’m really considering buying this one bcs the s110 is out so s100 is on sale now

    thanks!

    • hi, it appears that there are some problems with the photos. probably due to the change in facebook’s privacy settings. yes, i have photos from ss4 and big bang alive concert too. are you interested in seeing them? (:

      anyway, from what I know, there’s not much difference between S110 and S100. S110 has no GPS but WIFI-enabled. while S100 is the opposite (:

      hope this helps!
