I am looking to get my first digital camera and was just hoping for some opinions. I like the Cannon S5 IS, any thoughts on this camera or any others. I have been using disposables for the past few years. I would definately like to upgrade. Thanks.

I like the Canon S3 and S5 cameras. Very versatile and very fast to focus. I love the movie mode with stereo recording and use it a lot at my kids music recitals. But I just read a rumor that the S6 might be announced in June. If so, that means you can get the newest version of the camera, or get the S5 for cheaper as retailers clear their stock.

I had the S2 Is, upgraded to the S5 Is, then to my Rebel. The S5 Is is a great compact camera. You can use it fully automatic, or fully manual. I typically used AV priority when not in full manual mode.

I really enjoy the Supermacro feature on this camera for real up close photos. The other great feature is the rotating flip LCD screen. I find it handy for low light tripod shots.All in all a great camera.

Stereo movie clip are excellent from the S5 IS. And color swapping is another fun artistic tool from the camera menu selection.

The zoom is about 36mm to 432mm. You can purchase the conversion Lens Adapter, # LA-DC58E and the 1.5X Tele-Converter TC-DC58B to get you to 648mm zoom. A 58mm diameter filer works on the conversion lens, a filter such as the circular polarizer would be a great addition.

I'll echo what the other two have said about their experiences with the Canon's. I have the S2 IS, and love the macro and supermacro on it. I just upgraded to a digital Rebel XT, but I still carry my S2 IS in my camera bag.

    • If you ever have a hard time controlling temps with that controller you can always switch it out with a Savannah Stoker. https://www.savannahstoker.com/collections/frontpage/products/savannah-stoker-pellet-grill-control-system
    • LOL, you probably have more money into grills and smokers than I do.....
    • Just picked up a camp chef SG the other week pretty stoked about it  
    • I bought a boat before this season the guy I bought it from never transferred it in his name and registration was set to expire.  I had all the registration cards and what not I simply just made my own bill of sale from the "original" owner and scribble his name the best I could from his registration card. The trailer title was easy because the old owner filled out the seller info already and the guy I bought it from never filled out the buyer so I just had to put my info in.   I wasn't about to go track down the original guy when he lived 2 hours away from me. What is the worst that could happen
    • You will probably need that many to make sure you have one that works 😁. The last grill I bought was a top of the line charbroil with the side burner yadda yadda. Nearly $600.  Lasted barely two years with half the burners no longer working right and finally the grates were a rusted mess and it was replaced by a pellet grill. 
    • It's the same form whether the boat is titled or just registered. How long is the boat? 16' or longer or if there was a loan on it when new it would be titled. The form is just the starting point, since Homeland Security took an interest in boat ownership transfers several years ago it is not an easy process.
    • I have had great luck w/ my 3 yr old Big Horn. I have always said that the controller and hopper looked a lot like the Pit Boss       yeah... I'd say you've got options!
    • Actually I got a new 4 burner Char Grill with side burner this spring for up at the camper and a new cheaper 2 burner with side burner a week ago for at home, so alone with the new Char Grill smoker I got last year I have plenty of wienee cookers thanks.  😘
