S1 Niggles

I’ve had some time to play with the S1 and I’m now able to complain about it.

  • No bulb mode (unlimited exposure time, required for night time photography) I think the maximum exposure time I can dial is 15 seconds, which is well short of what’s needed for serious night time work, but adequate for play.
  • Slow focus in low light conditions. It often helps to turn IS (image stabilisation) off, focus, then turn IS back on.
  • Chroma distortion. Blue fringes where dark and light objects meet. Normally means that you’re close to over exposing the light objects anyway.
