    If the amature wants more than a point and shoot offers, he/she should shell out for a DSLR.

    This is what happened to me. I got S1 IS hoping I could do serious photography with it.

    It's not convenient:

    You can't achieve shallow DOF
    You can't focus fast
    It is not fun to shoot with
    The body is really flimsy
    The resolution is not there
    You can't go to high ISO without getting lots of noise
    Therefore, the inside shots look bad
    You can't shoot moving objects fast....

    etc etc etc...

    Shell out for the rebel... you won't regret it. Even if you have to wait a few months :) Cheers

    I agree. The S1 IS is a point & shoot style camera & it's only advantage over most others is the IS feature.

    Go straight to the Digital Rebel and open up the world of SLR photography.
