My little S5 contribution: taken handheld, one on normal setting, zoomed and one on macro.

[img]file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Gary%20Y%20Reyes/My%20Documents/My%20Pictures/Cat%20Pictures/Zoom%20ISO%20800.JPG[/img][img]file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Gary%20Y%20Reyes/My%20Documents/My%20Pictures/Cat%20Pictures/Zoom%20ISO%20800.JPG[/img]You can clearly see details of the cats face - whiskers, hair, etc.

Hope the pictures appear because this is my first posting with photos.

This is on normal setting, zoomed.

Sorry, guys. A little mix up. This photo is the normal mode, zoomed in. The other cat photo is on macro.

My apologies. My first time to post photos.

That is an excellent shot, A-Beginner-

There is lots of fine detail and sharpness in your photo. Well Done!

Sarah,

Thanks a lot for the comments - testimony to the capability of the S5IS.

Have had it about 6 months - am still experimenting with settings and learning but am happy with most of the output.

Another sample below taken on normal setting, zoomed, ISO 400.

Red is a difficult color for Canon to deliver and to maintain. So, IMHO You have done a great job. Won't you join us in the NEW Canon SX-100 Gallery and Titorial.

Hi, Just saw your post on staying away from a s5is made in China rather than Japan. Of course, I just looked and mine was made in China. Whatam I in for? Thanks for any help you can give.

madpie-

Initially when Canon began the second production line for the Canon S-5 in China there were a few quality control problems. Canon immediately fixed the problem and that was almost a year ago.

My S-5 camera was assembled in China and it has performed flawlessly. So I really do not think you have any worries.
