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.

    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
