After 6 years this camera can still compete with modern compacts outside in good light. The lens is very sharp in the centre, poor at the edges especially in one corner. At low iso, 80 and 100 images are very good, full of detail and little noise.  At high iso, 800 & 1600 its noise wonderful noise. Many people complain about compacts have aggressive noise reduction leading to smearing and loss of detail.  This camera seems to have no noise reduction! Very good for indoor flash photography. ...

I've been using this camera everyday for about 1 year. I love it. Especially the xvid avi video recoding feature is what I wanted the most. I guess this camera is out of production now, so my review here is not so useful for new buyers. Problems: 1. ASR is slow, but helps a lot in many cases. 2. No optical image stablization. 3. Color is unacceptably pinkish or purple biased in mid-tone areas of pictures taken indoor. 4. Because of video compression, the video picture is not as clear as ...

Very good camera ... Very good picture... and easy to use. Problems: Sometimes the camera stop to work for no reason... you have to take the batteries out and everything is back to normal.... I believe this is due to the batteries type.

This is the ideal point-and-shoot camera for me. My criteria were mainly pocketabilty, penlight power, readable screen, one hand operation (right-handed) and a non-plastic solid feel. A shortcoming is obviously the lack of a viewfinder but I can generally live with that. Problems: The manual does not mention what to connect to the DC socket. I have a power supply meant for a Sony P72 (4,2V 1,5A) that also used two penlights but have no idea if the camera has an internal charging regulator etc. ...

I was looking for a high-quality compact point & shoot to complement my Nikon D80 and I was looking at the Canon PowerShot G7 when I stumbled across the S1050. Not being very satisfied with the G7 I decided to try another camera... when I found out that the Sammy had the same size sensor 1/1.8 as the G7 I decided to give it a try... wow... all I can say is that I'm very impressed... I've pixel peeped the G7 vs the S1050 and aside from a touch more noise with the S1050 at higher ISOs, BUT ...
