    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.

    Conclusion

    Sporting Canon’s exclusive image stabilization and a sleek, silver body, the Powershot S1 IS packs excellent features for a consumer digicam. But with a price tag of $400 retail and a few disappointing setbacks, it is both too expensive for the bargain hunters and too underpowered for those willing to shell out that kind of cash.

    Still, those in the market for a fashionable camera with powerful zoom (and who are willing to pay $400 dollars for it) may want to give the S1 a chance. Its superb movie-clip shooting capabilities and swivel-LCD make the S1 a good, albeit pricey, choice for a family camera.

    It is really too bad that the S1 was plagued by so many performance issues, because it could have been so much more. Unfortuantely, its not.

    Pros:

    - Image Stabilization is effective

    - Great movie clip shooting mode

    - Stylish design

    - Electronic viewfinder and swivelable LCD

    - Powerful 10x Zoom

    Cons:

    - Wimpy 3.2 Megapixel sensor

    - Lots of noise at ISO 400

    - Some focusing issues
