I think the difference in price is the stabilization and 10X zoom. Stabilization makes you much less dependent on a tripod. Now that I have had a camera with stabilization I will never buy another large camera without it.

Some people make large blowups with a 3Mp camera and are quite happy with them. The viewing distance is greater and it works fine for some subject matter if you donít look too closely at the photo. But 5Mp will make a better large print.

The movie mode on the S1 is great but you will need a large memory card to use it a lot.
