    Graininess, 5.0 mpixel Canon S2 IS, what to do?

    Guys!

    I recently came back from a trip to Barcelona and was a bit excited to see how my photos turned out for the trip. I was really disappointed to discover that almost all pix where really grainy. Is that just the nature of my camera, or am I doing something wrong?

    Low res

    I'm guessing you're shooting in full auto? If that's the case the camera might set it self at a higher ISO-setting. Try shooting in manual with low ISO ^^

    This sentence does not exist when you're not looking!

    if its not an EOS, the sensor quality is not as good. ISO might also be a factor. Post-processing, too. but hey, grain ain't so bad
