My first digicam, S200...
 
I just bought a new Canon S200, this thing is great. Anyone else have one?

Any tips for using it?

Thanks in advance,
Christopher

Powershot S200
 
Got mine 1 month ago, still love it. To keep it short, things I love are:
- size!
- picture quality
- good pictures in auto mode, except low-light (Exp.compensation should be available also in auto mode)
- manual controls: AFL, AEL & long shutter
- remote control from PC
What I hate
- cannot choose shutter/aperture values
- shooting lag even with focus and exposure locked
- lousy and useless ZoomBrowserEX

I'm not a pro, in fact, I bought my first digicam 3 months ago. But it is amazing how greedy you can become when you get your hands on good cameras like this one.

About tips: make sure you try this remote control prog. You can even set exposure and aperture there! Too bad I don't have a laptop :)

Yeah, I've got one. Have you noticed any white star shaped spots on your pictures when you use flash at night time? Especially when it's dusty. Have a look at what I mean from the attached picture.

Other than that, I think it's a pretty good camera. But that white star is annoying.

Haven't seen this yet on my S200, but...
 
... it appears to be very common problem with compact cameras (not only digital ones). See<a href=http://webpages.charter.net/bbiggers/DCExperiments/html/spots_.html> this </a>and<a href=http://www.fujifilmsupport.com/faq/tech/spot/spot.htm> this </a>for explanations.
