    This new offering from Canon sounds good- image stabilization, 12 x optical zoom, digic III processor etc and under 250. Also no need to lug round enormous lenses etc.
    Anyone tried one and willing to comment?
    Thanks.

    Does it shoot raw ?

    Does it take Cokin P size filters ?

    Have an S2, and recenlty upgraded to a dSLR due to the limiatations of it. The S5 is improved but still makes too many compromises. For example:

    Cant shoot RAW
    Noisey at higher ISO's
    Poor focusing, compared to most dSLR's
    Poor metering, compared to most dSLR's

    Of course not, but for what it does, for less than the price of a basic lens, it ain't bad! If that's what you want! Horses for courses, it's not what I want, but I'm sure it'll be just what a lot of people do want! A lot of people have DSLR's, have all the gear, and never print anything above, say A4. Something like this would do the job perfectly, and at a saving of a thousand pounds or more.

    If it is like my son's S1 then yes, you need to buy the adaptor that brings a lens shade and a thread that you can attach filters to.

    But in my experience they are no substitute for an SLR.
