This camera was meant to be a replacement for my Canon Pro90 IS. It was a fine camera. The electronics were much more capable than that of the Pro90 IS, but the lens was no match for the one in the Pro90. This camera ultimately made me decide to switch to cameras with interchangeable lenses; pay for nice glass and keep it when you upgrade the camera body.
Have it all in one ultracompact camera. The canon S2 IS’s 5.0 megapixels of imaging power deliver stunning detail and clarity, even to oversized prints and the closest crop-ins. The impressively long 12x optical zoom is a feat of engineering, with Image Stabilizer (IS) technology that eliminates camera shake and a UD lens that provides brilliant color accuracy across the entire zoom range. The 4x digital zoom brings combined zooming power all the way to 48x for superb detail at sporting events, school concerts, and more.
