1st question - no idea - maybe technical problem

2nd question - the cam is quite slow if you disable continuous autofocus. Look at the menu settings and enable AF setting to continuous (multiple pictures) - should be better. But a warning: this drains the battery even more

Continuous vs. single AF has nothing to do with single vs. continuous SHOTS.

@Dequardo: Huh? I know that. I was answering the question: "... i see a great picture i press the shutter buton half way it confirms the picture i want i press all the way and end up with a different picture why ..."

So to my mind he refers to the slow response of the S1 IS when you press the shutter halfway. AF works then till it makes "beep" and cam is ready to shoot actually. In the meantime a fast moving object (and even small childs count as that for the S1 IS) changes position or scene changed. If you now press the shutter you get another picture - not that what you saw when you pressed the shutter half.

Maybe I got it wrong, but that's what I felt he was asking about.

I find my S1 tends to over expose everything (especially under bright sunshine - I haven't played much with flash yet) which causes colors to appear false. Also, vivid appears too garish to me. Try setting effects to neutral and exposure compensation to -2/3 and see if you get better results.
