    Canon S1 IS Digital Camera

    I agree with you pat the lens cover isn't very good...but on the other hand I know a guy that has either an Olympus (or maybe its another brand but i think its an olympus) that has the clip on lens cover...but its attatched to the outer body not the zoom so if he forgets to remove it before the...

    Pat there's a much nicer metal lens adapter that you can put on the S1. Once you have that on you could go to a regular clip on lens cover. Click here for details

    Yikes that's strange. I've never seen that happen before with any digital camera I've used. As Steve mentions there are app's that can try to recover data from various micro drives that could do what you need. If you have a card reader (highly recomended) you could try to do a checkdisk on it...

    I have no problems playing the AVI's in WMP9 and I just made a DVD of a couple of vid's I took this afternoon and they turned out pretty good other then a little wind noise.

    I've shot some video with mine and used various software packages to make DVd movies out of them. The image quality is pretty good for what it is (a digital camera not a video camera)

    Doubt it since it won't try to take a photo...at least that's what I would think. I haven't tried to take a photo with no CF card installed.

    No not at all its just a little different then your typical short zoom camera...and likely an issue with all the long zoom models. It can be annoying but its typically not really an issue for 95 percent of the shots I've taken.

    Canon S1 IS Digital Camera

    For the most part I've been pretty happy with my S1. What I really like is the extra long zoom with the stablizer, the built in flash, its movie mode and the fact it uses CF cards that I already owned. Where its not so strong is it eats batteries so use rechargeables (not uncommon in digicams)...
