Canon Powershot S1, Is It Good For Av Photos?

Wed Aug 25, 2004 12:32 pm

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 have it!

I haven't been planespotting that much, but I did manage to take quite a few photos. Go for it... the zoom and image stabilitation makes for excellent photos...


Check out this link for some recent photos of mine.

There is a fine line between a picture and a photo. The latter seems to be disappearing.

Hi CcrIR !

I'm a owner of this great Camera too, and I really love it.
I have now this camera for about 2 months and I'm happy with it.
I can easy said that I took more then 1000 pics with her.

The camera have some default (sometime focus and low light) but more good things (10X and IS).

For the aviation point, is not a reflex but she took really nice pictures. YOU NEED to know how to post processing the picture you took. It's really important.

I have my first acceptance with this camera and a good study of post-processing. Let's see my A.net pictures :

and more at my web site: http://www.pawmedia.ca/indexaviation.htm
I have more then 5 pics in the Q.

I think this can help you to choose.

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.
