Canon PowerShot S2 IS review from DP Review"Canon's long-awaited successor to the Pro 90 - made its way into dpreview's top 5 cameras (based on visitor clicks), a position it held for the best part of a year, despite stiff competition. There have been few compact cameras as eagerly awaited as the S1's successor, which finally arrived at the end of April 2005. In the 14 or so months between the S1 and the S2, the 'super zoom' market has grown immensely, with affordable 5MP image-stabilized models from Panasonic, Konica Minolta - and now Sony with its H1."

Canon PowerShot S2 IS review from Steve's DigiCams"If you're looking for a light-weight, stylish, moderately-priced digicam that is versatile enough to handle most family events while getting you close to sports action or wildlife, the Canon PowerShot S2 IS should be high on your list."

Canon PowerShot S2 IS review from CNET Reviews"The successor to the image-stabilized S1 IS has more than just a slightly expanded waistline. The Canon PowerShot S2 IS boasts an upgrade to a 5-megapixel sensor (from 3.2), a 12X zoom lens (up from 10X), and a 1.8-inch LCD (vs. 1.5 inches). A Digic II processor and a high-speed USB connection speed things up. "

Canon PowerShot S2 IS review from Megapixel"With respect to the ergonomics of the body , the most noticeable improvement is to the grip. The S2 has a textured section on the inside of the grip to provide a better hold of the camera. With respect to performance, the S2 is equipped with 2 microphones, just above and on either side of the lens, so that is can capture stereophonic sound."

Canon PowerShot S2 IS review from Design Technica"This class of camera (5MP, 12x zoom, optical image stabilization for less than $500) is one of the great deals for 2005. With their extensive focal lengths, they are great for travelers; one camera handles anything thrown its way without encumbering separate accessory lenses or moving to a more expensive digital SLR. The S2 is a good camera but it has its flaws."

Canon PowerShot S2 IS review from Let's Go Digital"The Canon S2 IS camera features an impressive optical zoom of 12x combined with an almost indispensable image stabilisation. When used to working with this function, you don't want to do without it anymore. The specifications of the Canon Powershot S2 IS are impressive; 5 Megapixels, 12x zoom with optical image stabilisation, high video clip resolution and the already rather famous DIGIC II processor."

Canon PowerShot S2 IS review from Pocket Lint"Image noise over ISO 200 sensitivity is noticeable and in low lighting, there are annoying lapses in the AF, which seems to be a tad hit and miss in those conditions. Nevertheless, colour and exposure are great and the lens, despite its jack-of-all-trades focal length is impressively free of distortion."

Canon PowerShot S2 IS review from PC Mag"Although the PowerShot S2 IS comes close to being a hybrid camera, we don't classify it as one, because it doesn't capture video clips in MPEG-4 format. Even so, it does offer fairly good stills along with decent video clips."
