Powershot S5 / Speedlite 430

I have now received these and had a play with them. The main changes in the S5 that I noticed immediately over the S1 are the larger LCD screen, of course the hot shoe on top, and small incremental differences. In features and functionality it is very much like the S1 I have grown to enjoy. The flash shoe is the main reason for me to buy this camera, with a flash that costs almost as much, but which is highly desirable due to limitations caused by the low performance of the internal flash. The S5 also comes up to date with some of the feature set of my A460 such as the super macro which in theory could focus on a fly walking across the lens. I’m looking forward to the improved capabilities of this camera which is largely used for work related occasions where up to several hundred photos are taken each day.
