    Canon S1 IS Digital Camera

    I think a lot of cameras have trouble shooting in low light. My previous camera - the Nikon Coolpix3200 was just as bad as the S1 in taking pics in lowlight (but the S1 was much better at everything else... =P).

    I just recorded a movie at 640x480 (30fps) and it is smooooth. It must be your video playback, Chris. See if dl the newest codecs help.

    Canon S1 IS Digital Camera

    I forgot to share this with you guys. I was about to sell my S1 so I could buy the new Kodak 7590 5.0mp S1-type of camera (you know, 10x zoom, SK lens, yadda yadda) for $500 with included camera dock. However, looking over its specs, it doesnt come with features that I took for granted with...

    Canon S1 IS Digital Camera

    I picked mine up a 6 months ago for 355$ from best buy. I just do pricematches - usually circuit city has the S1 for 359.99 and best buy does 110% price match... if you talk to them. To Chris, Keep your eyes peeled for an S1 sale, you can get some money back if you pricematch.

    Canon S1 IS Digital Camera

    from my experience between my old coolpix3200, the kodak 6490, and the canon s1... the canon s1 is very quick in taking pictures. compared to the 6490 especially, the s1 has very little delay between shots. just point and click, then click again to skip the post-shot view, then point and click...

    Canon S1 IS Digital Camera

    Just bought the camera a week ago.... one word: awesome! very handy and very nifty! although it should be more than 3.2 mp and should have a dedicated macro.. i feel that because i dont shoot anything more than 3 mp, this camera is fine, not to mention i was still able to auto-"macro" just by...
