Default Canon S1 IS

Just bought one Sunday to compliment my 2 10d DSLRS. I liked the camera a lot at first, but after loading the images into photoshop and see the image noise I am now unimpressed. Its very objectionable, quite terrible in fact. Unless the picture is taken in very bright light the noise is just awful. I thought this would be a great little P&S camera, but I was wrong.

Did some more testing it appears this camera likes a lot of light. Flash indoor pictures are very noisy while outdoors you can grab some good shots. See here:

I suppose You used Auto. Forget it (with almost cameras).
Set ISO to 50 or 100 and will not find any noise.

Well I shoot with 2 Canon 10d DSLRs, so not used to auto, but wanted to use auto with the smaller camera.

Guess I'll pick some auto mode that will let me select ISO and see what happens.

Thanks

Set Mode Dial to P. Is an Auto with many variations.
The problem with Auto is that "it" will help us. High ISO (with high noise) to get a "faster" picture.
Try P with 50 ISO outdoors.
