    I'm assuming he meant to write "S3" instead as he owns an S3 hehe. In answer to the previous question - most matters concerning S2 can be applied to S3 as well.
  3. S3 - Occasional "recoiling" sensation when taking photos

    I'm not sure if my S3 has been doing it all along or just lately, but this happens in like 1 out of 15 or 20 shots perhaps (last couple of days, I was just outdoors taking a bunch of random shots). ...

    To clarify this tip (not asking a separate question) - do you mean to move the contrast setting all the way to the right so it's darker? It would be more intuitive if Canon had the left side as the...

    S3 Shortcourses book

    Has anyone tried out the S3 Shortcourses book on www.shortcourses.com? It seems some people on dpreview are praising the S3 book, but part of that might have to do with the fact that there aren't...

  18. How to retain S3 exif data when modifying image ?

    I understand that retaining exif data after heavy post processing is somewhat meaningless, but what if all you wanted to do was crop, resize, or add a copyright watermark to the image? I tried...
