1/250 sec., F2.8 and ISO 50

The Canon PowerShot S50 has the superb image quality, fast performance, professional features, and high resolution to satisfy demanding serious amateur photographers. It features the full set of exposure control in a compact and stylish design.

Though the S50 may not fit in everyone's jeans pocket, it is compact enough to slide into a coat pocket or large pants pocket, making it a full-featured digital camera in a sleek compact size. It has an all metal body which gives it a solid feel, and comes in Satin Silver or Matte Black. Its size will suit those who find an ultra compact digital camera just too small to operate well. Unlike some of its competitors that are more chunky with protruding lenses, the S50 has a distinctive sliding cover that protects its lens and also functions to power on/off the camera.

It's easy to get good results with the S50. In Program AE mode, the camera is point-and-shoot easy to operate; for more flexible exposure control, switch to one of the scene modes, Aperture-Priority, Shutter-Priority or full Manual mode. The S50 should prove to be a good starting point-and-shoot camera, as well as satisfy those who desire more flexible exposure control.

If you are a serious amateur photographer and are looking for a digital camera with superb image quality and flexible exposure control, then you should look seriously at the Canon PowerShot S50. The S50 can also deliver excellent results on Program AE mode, so you can share it with someone who is only a point-and-shoot type of photographer.
