Strange, your shot has more hits than mine!
I am having a ball playing around with the S1. I kept going into the local pro camera shot and staring at the body (should have been arrested for stalking the camera body) until one of the sales reps spotted me, grabbed the S1, put in some batteries and let me "play". I bought the darn thing in about 5 minutes!!!
Also want to say a big public thank you to you for giving me all that advice on the camera and taking the time to let me know your experiences. Although I may rescind that Thank You once I get my VisaCard Bill!
You are right, the 1:1.5 aspect does take some getting used to, especially if like me you are shooting still SLR. But once you do get used to it, bang, let the fun begin.
I like it because I can burn shots of anything without worrying, if it is no good, then just delete and shoot again. I"m now shooting angles and positions I never would have bothered with in the past. Example:

The only little problem I have noticed is that the CCD is very senstive to dust and little minute particles. You have to constantly clean the CCD with a blast from compressed air. One shoot I had a big black dot in the left hand side of each and every shot, which had to be airbrshed out of the final scan.
How are you finding it?
