Canon PowerShot S2 IS review

Upgraded from S1. Ergonomics and build quality is fine. Slighly better IMO than the S1. Better battey door and SD door is smaller and more stable.

I like the revised swivel LCD. Canon stiffened it up and I much prefer this over the previous swivel.

Yes pictures have nose at higher ISO but the color reproduction is spot on IMO. I will experiment with -1/3 EV as others seem to state this best.

AF is fast enough for me.

Movie mode is stellar.

Overall an important enough improvement over the S1 to me.

Problems:

None yet.
