Quality Camera with a great price

Strengths: Strengths: entry level SLR

Weakness: Weaknesses: a litte big in size, lcd screen a tad small.

Excellent images, excellent photos, flawless reliability.
Just the perfect Camera for the money.
would benefit from an even bigger optical zoom, but that's probably unrealistic at this price range

Great Pictures - Lens error

Strengths: Great picture quality for such a high ranging zoom lens. 12x Optical Zoom lens is very nice. The photographer in me loves all the manual settings.

Weakness: The lens has not been working correctly (E12 Error - Lens not contracting) and is now in the shop. This camera has been very well cared for and the lens problem is disheartening.

Over all the Cannon S2 IS is one of the better cameras I have owned. Just wish it spent less time in the shop. As an amateur photographer, I find this camera's manual settings a big plus, though it also works as a point and click.

Strengths: Everything on this camera is great.

Weakness: Nothing.

This is the best camera you can buy for the money, period. I love it! I love the quality of the images and the optical zoom! Gives you options of a more expensive camera.

Fantastic Ultra Zoom camera for all purposes

Strengths: Super Ergonomic design and ease of operation, great zoom and lenses, plenty of automatic and manual settings, DVD quality video with stereo sound, AA batteries, Canon warranty

Weakness: A tad smallish LCD, and that's about it...

Greetings, reader! I had my eyes set on this camera since its predecessor Canon S1 IS appeared and paid FULL RETAIL PRICE which it still worth every single penny. I’ve taken thousands of photos (including a couple thousands in three days of semi-finals and finals of World Badminton Championship in 2005 in Anaheim, CA) and hundred of videos with it and Canon and always was impressed with the...
