    Tough crowd!

    Turn nailed this:



    The SX1/SX10 looks like Canon finally drew a firm line between S series and SLR, and I'm for it.

    I've got an S5 (and had an S2 before it), and I've never...

    Update: The online manual for the S5 doesn't answer the question, so I called Canon tech support, and the guy walked down the hall and picked up an S5 -- and yup, Face Detection engages. I've got an...
  3. PowerShot S5 IS movie mode / Face Detection question

    I'm considering replacing my PowerShot S2 IS with an S5 for a trip later this week, and I'm curious whether Face Detection works when you shoot a still photo in the middle of recording a movie. In...

    Goodbye loose lens cap

    From the photo at the Japanese site (linked above), it looks like we finally get a locking lens cap. I have to admit that the S1-S3 lens cap is a mixed blessing: I can flick it off the lens...

    S4 vs. TX1

    At first glance, the TX1 looked to me like a replacement for the S4, but the only real improvements I see are:


    Higher res.
    DIGIC III with Face Detection.
    High-def movie mode.
    ISO 1600 (we...

    The confusion continues

    The Amazon product page says the S3 has 9-point AiAF.

    And what's with calling it the "Canon PowerShot Pro Series S3 IS"? Pro? Is this where the PowerShot Pro went?

    Thanks for the BeBit link!

    I didn't notice this at first, but Canon changed the second function button to ISO speed instead of metering mode. You can set the S3's Shortcut button for metering...

    My main concern is that I'm going to Disney World at the end of the year. I want to be able to shoot indoors, even (perhaps hoping against hope) on the dark rides. If the S3 offers a significant...

    Tech specs

    From Canon's S3 specifications page:

    http://consumer.usa.canon.com/ir/controller?act=ModelTechSpecsAct&fcategoryid=144&modelid=13077

    It looks like it's still got only spot AF, not 9-point AiAF....

    PowerShot S3 IS

    So the word is out.

    If the S3's light sensitivity is truly better, I'll seriously consider selling my S2 (if anyone will buy them once the S3 is out) and getting an S3. My one lasting complaint...
