Powershot S2 IS Gallery - hdwalther
I was floored by the S2's abilities with this shot. It was taken at ISO 400, in Tv mode at 1/60 sec from the audience at the symphony (the guy on the left is my brother-in-law). I supported my arm on an armrest and set the camera for high continuous shooting.  I would then pick a good moment and take 5 or 10 shots in a row, keeping my arm as still as possible.  Usually a couple great shots would come out of each burst.  Since there was so little light available I also bumped up the exposure compensation by 1 stop. 

I did also need to do some noise reduction and a little sharpening in post-processing, but overall I felt so impowered to be able to snag this type of shot from so far away. It also showed me that ISO 400 is not "useless" as so many people say. It definately has its uses.
