My Canon S5 IS has been sitting in a drawer for several years, and I'm thinking about using it as an investment-free way to photograph the eclipse (80% where I live). I would put it on a tripod and only view using the LCD screen, playing with ISO, aperture, and shutter speed to see what I can get. If the camera gets fried it won't be much of a loss. I am more interested in protecting my eyes. Appreciate any comments about the feasibility of my plan and suggestions on how to improve it. Of...
So I'm deciding to stick with what's working, my S5 and not upgrade. I have the lensmate adapter for camera and was thinking about picking up a telephoto lens. Ebay has a bunch of knockoffs, does anyone have any suggestions? Also, do I need another lens kit/adapter for it? Please help.
I didn't even know Fuji did Nikon-mount SLRs till the other day, and when I looked them up they looked very interesting. My background is that I have Nikon FX & DX and I have been in the habit of taking cheaper old CCD cameras around for casual photos for the colours- if you expose carefully. I had been interested in a D200 for that reason after handling one, even though I already had more capable cameras. You probably already know the S5 is based on the D200 chassis but has a significant...
Hello! I've recently been looking into getting my first digital SLR camera. I've had the Canon Power shot S5 IS for years, and while it's a great little camera, I am looking to upgrade to a mid-range dslr. I would like a camera that I can grow into and use for multiple occasions, mostly wildlife photography, scenic and portraits. I will probably be using this camera for the next 2-5 years. I've been doing a lot of reading and have been looking more closely at the following: Canon T5i Nikon...
Hi, I have a Canon Powershot S5 IS. Yesterday were were taking a lot of shots in a workshop (building a canoe) There was some dust in the air, but not much. We were in manual mode, setting aperture/shutter speed by hand. About halfway the evening, the canon just started taking horrible pictures. It seemed like the white balance or exposure control was totally off. As well, the pictures seemed very poor quality -- full of thin lines. Here is an example shot. first shot Tonight I...
I posted this DEEP in a question that I had in the beginners area but I want some answers from some tried and true Nikon users ;-) Brief history: I've been snapping shots actively since I graduated High School (and even earlier if you count the 110 camera I had as a kid). As I've progressed my cameras have become more and more advanced until I got to My trusty Canon S5IS which finally gave out on me (coming up with some beep and lens error message, and it's def. served it's purpose over the...

Have any of you S5 shooters consider buying this lens for your S5 Pro, or have you even tried shooting with it? I really really like my XE1 but since i sold my 17-55 i haven't shot with the S5 that much and i do miss those punchy CCD colors. The S5 is just simply from another world. One thing i will tell you is that I did borrow my dad's 17-50 Sigma OS and that lens did give me sharper images with the S5, i am suspecting that the OS DEFINITELY helps in giving you more crisp and sharper...
