    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.

    Design



    The design element behind the S1 was engineered by a team of experts lead by Masakazu Kumakura. Kumakura and his team sought to achieve the highest level of functionality while maintaining eye-catching craftsmanship. In this respect, they have succeeded. The S1’s elegant curves and complimentary colors make for a stylish camera, while strategic placement of components such as the pop-up flash (centered to minimize vignetting) also improves camera functionality.







    According to Canon’s design room, Mr. Kumakura had in mind to “express the beauty of circular tension with an ellipse that reminds (him) of a scoop of ice cream” when he designed the upper portion of the S1. Ice cream was certainly the last thing on my mind when I set out to describe the S1, but I am sure that Kumakura knows what he is talking about.



    What I know is that the curves and contours on the S1 are both attractive and comfortable, and that I would much rather take the S1 to a party or night out than my bulkier SLR, or even my Sony Cybershot.
