This new camera is sweet. It's fast, fast, fast compared to my S230. Start-up time is zippy, shutter delay is short, and shut down is fast. It's also smaller, over twice the resolution, and shoots much longer videos. In short, it's better in every way over my S230 as far as I can tell.
I can't wait to take it out for a real test. I haven't been this excited about a new camera in a while.
