Uhm, isn't the successor, the S50, gonna be announced officially within a week?..
I just ordered an S45 and in process of choosing flash card menory. Any feedback as to size and pitfalls, or will any card make do. Does Cat II refer to mini drives, and is "high speed" worth anything other than marketing hype. Thanks for any insight...
I did a lot of research & testing on my S40. I found that the simpletech cards work best. Don't even try Sandisk or Lexar they are way too slow! They are selling a 256 mb simpletech on Amazon for about $40 so it's a great deal. How do you like your S45? I am thinking about getting one. Let me know what you think...
Hi I'm thinking of buying an S45 or coolpix 4300. How happy are you with your S45. Thanks in anticipation of your reply. John Coyle..
Has anyone heard about a mass storage driver for the the powershot s series? the driver is supposed to give the camera mass storage capabilities. a co-worker of mine told me about it. But I can't find it anywhere on the web. using a card reader is ok, but I sometimes forget to bring it along with me...
I have had the S45 since Feb and I love it........would only trade it for the S50 if I were not so poor lol. Takes awsome pics..
Hi. I'm very satisfied with my S45. Makes very high quality photos. Not quite satisfied with the fact that it has no cradle or adapter for "in camera" battery charging. I must (carefully) take the battery out of the camera for each charging. More macro would have been nicer to have too.
Other than that, I have no regrets buying the S45...
Does anyone know whether the S45 is able to take advantage of the faster read/write capability of the new, faster CompactFlash cards on the market? Thanks for any comment. Sterling..
Very little .. I am testing old sandisk 800kB/s vs new pqi 6MB/s..
Does anyone have an opinion whether I should get the Canon G2 or the S45? Any feedback would be appreciated...
I have a S45 and I spilt some milk on to the front shutter how do I take it off???? plz help!..
I have an SLR Canon EOS ElanIIE and a few really nice lenses. Does anyone know if Canon makes a digital camera that I could use these lenses on??..
EOS 10D retails for 1249 in rip off britain but no doubt cheaper over the pond. Bloody marvellous camera (6MPixel), wish I could afford one..
Hi.can someone please tell a newbie how to take night shots with S-45.
The pix I have taken so far are dark & the lights are fuzzy.
I have a Canon Powershot S45. While recording a video clip it is recording only for a second and LCD shows busy. Can any body advice me regarding this.
I found out today (after ordering a 256MB PQI 52x card) that the S45 shot-to-shot times do not change with a faster memory card. Digital Photography Review did timing tests and found that shot-to-shot times were consistently 1.9 seconds using either a SimpleTech CF card or an IBM Microdrive. This leads me to conclude that a faster CF card would also not have an impact because Microdrives are considerably slower. This makes a noticeable difference in other cameras, but does not affect the S45. Hope that helps! -Josh Timing comparison: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canons45/page10.asp..
I've had no problems with my S45 in movie mode. I do notice, though, that "busy" appears briefly on the LCD when I end a clip. It's may be obvious, but to start recording a clip you depress the exposure button and release it. The recording continues until you depress the button and release it again. At that time "busy" briefly appears on the LCD. While the recording is underway, the remaining number of seconds available is shown in the lower right corner of the LCD screen.
Hi digishoot, I saw your inquiry in the "Help! Night Photography..." thread and answered it there, but to save you and any others who are interested from having to jump around I'll repeat it here. Well, let's see. You will need a tripod, of course. Autofocus won't do the job for you with anything but very close subjects, so you'll have to set focus manually. For exposures longer than one second you'll need to set exposure manually in M mode. Then to avoid blurring of the image caused by camera shake when you press the button use the self-timer feature.
That's all I can think of. Experiment a bit and you'll get great pictures. It's a fine camera. Have fun! Sterling..
