With Optical Image Stabilizer (IS), Ultrasonic Motor (USM) and a UD lens element, the PowerShot S2 IS's 12x optical zoom is no ordinary lens. Optical IS works to counteract camera shake - even at full zoom and in low light conditions - for ultra sharp photos and movies. USM provides super responsive, smooth and near silent zoom, while the UD element reduces chromatic aberrations for razor sharp images with superb colour accuracy. A super macro mode allows for precise focusing no matter how close you get to your subject. Combine the powerful lens with capacity to shoot up to 60 minutes of VGA quality movies with full stereo sound. A dedicated movie button gets you shooting immediately in either 15 or 30fps to ensure you never miss those once in a lifetime moments. The Photo In Movie feature allows full resolution digital stills to be taken whilst shooting a movie.
The DIGIC II processor delivers incredible 2.4 fps continuous shooting, super fast auto focus and rapid start up, plus superb colour rendering and white balance accuracy for natural skin tones and rich, vibrant colours.

The lens is an ultra quiet 36-432mm (35mm equivalent) F2.7easily at hand with the ability to customise a function button to your preference.
The tilt and swivel LCD - similar to many video cameras - allows a different angle to your photos.
The cameras features and abilities greatly outstrip mine, but I hope I can grow into it over the next few years, rather tahn growing out of it in a few months.
In the two weeks I have owned it I have never been short of delighted with the results and continue to discover new features.
Superb crisp pictures with very realistic colouring. Extremely quick and powerful zoom and loads of features to keep you entertained.
As others have mentioned it's not perfect - the body is plastic. However my last powershot was plastic has has put up with being dropped repeatedly, used in very hot, cold and humid conditions and still carries on.
Considering what you're getting for the price it's a bargain.
