Thanks, but trying to find some information relating solely to the Canon S1 IS.

I took about 80 pictures last night and am new to picture taking, but have been reading lots about digital photography to beef up my skills. Messed around with different aperature and shutter speeds but finally settled on an 8 second shutter and F8 aperature to get my best pictures.

I'm equally as new to posting pictures, so I hope ya'll are able to view these if interested. I uploaded them to my yahoo briefcase. Link below:

Would be happy to hear any constructive criticism.

Pictures look great! So exactly what setting were you using; M or night scene?

Hey thanks!

I used the "M" mode and had the camera on a tripod.

I got some this weekend in movie mode. I was close enough to them that even at full wideangle some of them were spilling out over the edges of the screen. One of them exploded close enough so I would have needed a <10mm (35mm equivalent) focal length to capture it.
