The Canon S3 IS is one tough camera. I have taken 100.000 pictures with it, also I dropped it from almost 2 meters high on the ground (clumsy me) and it's still alive without any damage into the parts that create the image (lenses,motors and stuff). Too bad they don't make the cameras as tough as they once were.
Thank you for your comment. Yeah, I was going for that surrealistic look but I didn't want to overdo it like they do it on many HDR images.

Kind regards.

Sadly, mine wasn't as tough... and the sensor was the first to fail, everything else still working but images taken with it have horizontal lines all over.

I'm now a Fujifilm user but still miss my S3.

It's funny you mentioned that. Since the day I bought my S3, one in 3-4 thousand images comes out with the same horizontal lines you mentioned. It's been doing that for the last 6,5 years and it still works fine. I guess my S3 came with partially broken sensor.
