I want to how good is this camera. I'm just scouring the net and salepapers for one so I can work to get it, and I saw this one for $400.00 at Best Buy. Even though my birthday isn't untl November, I still want a good camera under $500.00 that is good for aircraft photos. Anyone here has this one?

I used to have a powershot pro90. The S1 must be much improved, but I heard that it has a similar problem to the pro90 which I found really interfered with action shots of planes. Every time you clicked on the shutter, the EVF would blackout for a second or so, and you would not be able to take the next shot for another half a second after the EVF image resumed. This means that you can only take one shot of a moving plane as you cannot recompose and retake another shot in time.
