I added this camera to my wishlist on Amazon and I might try and purchase it before Christmas, but I wanted to ask you if you know anything about this Canon PowerShot Pro Series S3 IS 6MP with 12x Image Stabilized Zoom camera.
If you don’t know anything about it or just want to say “seems cool to me”, then don’t bother. No offense. I’m just looking for decent feedback and conversation about this camera.
Some of the features include:
- 12x optical zoom lens with USM and UD lens element
- Optical Image Stabilizer
- 6.0-megapixel CCD
- Larger size 2.0-inch vari-angle LCD
- 30-frame-per-second (fps) VGA movies with stereo sound and Photo in Movie feature
- DIGIC II, iSAPS, and Flexizone AF/AE for fast, precise results and 2.3 fps continuous shooting performance
- 20 shooting modes and My Colors photo effects
- High ISO Auto and ISO 800 for low light flexibility
- Widescreen (16:9) recording
I don’t even know what all this means, but seems good. I’ve been debating getting something like this instead of a full DSLR. Just seems I can save about $400 and still get about 98% of what I want out of it.
