'The ISO 200 result is remarkably good and the ISO 400 result is perfectly usable for smaller prints.'
'has a small hesitancy when focussing at the long end of its zoom reach in low contrast light.'
'Its feature set is solid, but not exceptional.'
'The H5 is definitely outclassed by the competition in the continuous shooting department: the Canon PowerShot S3 and Panasonic FZ7/FZ30 can shoot infinitely (with a high speed SD card) at over 2 frames/second.'
'the Canon PowerShot S3 IS's combination of features, performance, and relatively compact design certainly gives megazoomers a compelling alternative.'
'S3 shooters have a fast, accurate, and very quiet ultra-zoom digital camera that's capable of capturing reasonably sharp handheld shots at shutter speeds that are beyond the ability of other (non IS) long zoom digital cameras.'
'It offers just about everything you want in a camera, from a big zoom lens to optical image stabilization to manual controls to a fancy movie mode.'
'The S3 IS fit well in my hand and felt sturdy, though it's light and fairly compact.'
