    Nice camera with a 12X zoom. The S2 IS looks like a SLR film camera.

    What kind of SD card are you using?

    Got ya!



    Patriot Extreme Performance 1GB Secure Digital Flash Media Model PEF1G133SD

    The card works great, it keeps up with the buffer in the camera without trouble. My older generic Kingston cards would get to 16 sec. of video or 18 continuous shots and stall....

    I still need to do a lot of learning, this thing has so many settings I'm overwhelmed. I'ts as close to SLR as I could get...

    The camera came in today. It does take nice shots. It will take some time to get comfortable with it as does all things with buttons.

    I suspect the first camera may have been OK as I had the same issue with this one. The instructions are quite simple.
    "Insert the battery paying close attention to the direction of the battery." There is a little slide lock that keeps the battery in while the SD card is added/removed. I could not get the camera to power up until I Physically forced the 'slide lock' to engage.

    681 seconds of video @ 30fps 4:3 asp or 584 seconds of video @ 30 fps 16:9 asp. This is a Sandisk Ultra II 1 GB card.

    I really wanted to know why the first camera did not work. I didn't need proof that I can be an idiot. I have proven this too many times in the past. Still, God looks after children and fools.

    ahh, see on that canon that little battery lock just snaps over by itself. either way works though, and the lock didnt seem very durable so i wonder what would happen if it actually broke...

    the video specs seem about the same. its pretty decent video at least for a small digicam. defiantly ok for quick memorable moments, like writting permanent marker all over a buddys past-out face
