DCviewsDCViews Canon Powershot S2 and Sony H1 comparison : The Dutch portal web site DCViews has published a 2-in-1 review, a side-by-side review of two comparable digital cameras. The first digital cameras that make their appearance is the Canon Powershot S2 IS and the Sony Cybershot DSC H1. Both digital cameras are full packed with attractive features, provide 5 Megapixel resolution and offer a great 12x optical zoom. The new Canon Powershot S2 IS has been introduced around April 2005, the Sony Cybershot H1 in February 2005. However, both camera's are available since some weeks so we are talking about two brand new products. It is interesting to learn about the differences between two competitors.

A strong 5.1 effective Megapixel resolution Super HAD CCD matches the high optical strength, so not only do you have a large zoom with this model, you’ll have the option for larger prints too. The Sony Real Imaging Processor further enhances the shooting experience, keeping pictures sharp, colors real, ensuring an extremely rapid camera operation, and long STAMINA battery life. For even further subjects a 24x Precision Digital Zoom is on hand, as well as an astonishing 48x Smart Zoom in VGA mode.

Canon PowerShot S2 IS
The Canon Powershot S2 IS offers a 12x optical zoom. A convincing blend of versatility with power, this worthy successor to the Canon Powershot S1 IS features optical Image Stabilizer technology, outstanding optics and 30 fps digital video camera quality extended video recording of up to 60 minutes with stereo sound. Powered by the same DIGIC II processor found in Canon's pro-series D-SLR cameras, the Canon Powershot S2 IS features super-responsive 2.4 fps shooting, start up times and auto focus speeds almost twice as quick as that of its predecessor, 18 shooting modes and shutter speeds to 1/3,200 of a second. A USB 2.0 Hi-speed interface is provided for super quick image and video transfers. The Canon Powershot S2 IS digital camera will shoot continually and uninterrupted at 2.4 fps until the memory card becomes full, providing users with a new realm of action sport sequence opportunity. 17 still shooting modes include full manual mode, 6 pre-set Special Scene modes for quickly optimizing settings in tricky lighting conditions, and Stitch Assist for multi-image panoramas.

DCViews - Sony Cybershot DSC H1 and Canon Powershot S2 IS compared
According to DCViews: "The Sony H1 has a large LCD-screen (2.5" and 115,000 pixels) and works well as a viewfinder, even in bright light conditions. The Electronic Viewfinder of the Canon S2 IS is of average quality. This is fully compensated by the twist-and-tilt LCD-screen." About Action photography: "Start-up, operation, focusing and shutter delay of the Sony Cybershot H1 are excellent and you don't have to miss a shot with this camera. Unfortunately the 'motor drive' is too slow as is the buffering. This makes the camera not really suitable for action- and sports photography. Canon put all their knowledge in the Powershot S2 to make it a very fast digital compact camera. As said it is very responsive and 2.4 fps in continuous mode without limit is a unique feature for this type of camera."

DCViews - Conclusion
DCViews: "The Sony Cybershot DSC H1 and the Canon Powershot S2 IS are almost each others equal. Both cameras are suitable for beginners and more advanced photographers and are extremely useful for 'candids', nature- and travel photography, as well as taking pictures at concerts and indoor events."
