Well, I got my new S1 and am thoroughly involved in learning all of its tricks. A big package. One aspect boggles me: On my old Olympus I used to just plug into the USB D/L port and pipe images directly into a folder. The Canon S/W won't let me do that, instead ducting files into a high-overhead proprietary thing of theirs. I can circumvent that by using a CF card reader, but maybe somebody here knows how to directly download from the card while it is stll in the camera. Thanks.
