I've had my Canon powershot in for repairs 3 timesd now.
The latest being the CCD.
Canon have deciced to replace it with a new S31S, which I have to say is a nice looking camera.
The problem is none of the memory cards for the S1 fit.
I'm als a Mac OS9 user and cannot download the CR Rom onto my computer and the old S1 program doesn't work for the S31S.
So I'm not stuct with a nice camera i cannot use and some memory cards with no camera to put them in.
Who said Life was mean to be easy?

Get a memory card reader and use those old CF cards as usb drives and buy SD cards for the s3. I only had my S1 fixed once and now its not under warranty so I guess I won't get a free camera.

"A nice looking camera"???
I believe it is possible that you really don't know what they gave you there. Quit complaining about the cards, buy a 1GB SD and use the camera, you'll see how good you got it then.

I'd say Canon was very fair with you and predict you'll love the S3. A 2GB Ultra 2 SD card can be purchased at Staples for $50. You'll like the combo of a large card and the S3.

Your experience with Canon is another reason I will likely buy the S3 with teleconverter instead of taking a chance on the new Olympus 550 UZ with 18X zoom.
