    Would a larger post perhaps show these photos lighter and allow better view of the ISO performance. Also; do you have actual action shots to post? And, how close do you sit?

    I don't think they'll want flashes going off, also it wouldn't carry all that far. You need higher ISO ("film" sensitivity to light) an lower "f-stop".

    You may have an "action" mode on your...

    Glad you agree.

    I believe that with the S2's max Optical zoom, 1/500th is not immune to camera shake. In fact, it sounds like a bare minimum. Try turning it off one day and let us know.

    The poster made it clear that shaky hand solution is tops. That's IS.

    In the old days, a 450mm shot hand held shot on a tiny camera was obsurd. Why steer someone from that great advancment?

    Thanks!

    Since 35mm was pretty well based on ISO 100 would it follow that at ISO 1600 you would half the 1/400th 4 times, lets see, 200, 100, 50. Yes, 1/50th shutter at 380mm when ISO is at...

    Tiff is close.

    RAW is "as sent from the sensor". No post-processing. Post processing is where things like sharpening and saturation are added.
