buy one of these bad boys if you want to take really amazing pics without the total bulk of an slr. i believe its the happy medium and its a great camera! just purchased one recently in malaysia and have been amazed witht he results! the zoom and image stabilizer combine wonderfully to take crisp and delightful images!
go get one!
You're right! I have an S1 IS for over a year already, and yes, the camera is simply amazing. With the improvements in S2, it'll only be better! Couldn't wait to lay my hands on one and try it out! I wonder what they have in store for S3!
How much did you get it for? From what I know, it's selling at the range of 1900-2000 Malaysian Ringgit (exactly the same as mine a year ago).
2000 ringitts with tripod, 1 gig card, bag, strap, software etc. bargain!
still loving the camera. went to spain with it and its fantastic!!
The S3 IS is coming out in soon.
6mpx, bigger lcd, Black and some software tweaks.
