The S2 IS does indeed have stereo sound for video capture, contrary to what has been posted. This is evidenced by Canon's product page for the camera, currently at this url. --Jmeden2000 19:44, 13 April 2007 (UTC)


What on earth is that sensor size supposed to read? It says 1/2.5 in CCD -- that's certainly not 1x2.5 in, if it's 1/2 x .5 ... that doesn't make sense either. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:16, August 29, 2007 (UTC)

    • Correct. For no adequately explored reason (other than historical ones that really don't matter in the consumer market) sensor sizes are given in fractions of an inch rather than the far more sensible mm. (talk) 18:55, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Canon PowerShot S2 IS.jpg[edit]

Image:Canon PowerShot S2 IS.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Shutter type[edit]

Shutter in S2 IS, is Mechanical shutter + electronic shutter as you can see in its specs:, or observing it in action if you own one, as I do. -- (talk) 19:23, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
