    Canon Powershot S1 IS

    Bottom Line: Image Stabilization is useful, and the swivel LCD is convenient. A stylish design and 10x USM lens make for a great family camera. However, noise at high shutter speeds and at ISO 400, plus some focusing issues keep the S1 from reaching its full potential.
