    The S2 is no where near obsolete.
    Its has the highest resolution and lowest noise of all the cameras in its
    price class.
    Far less noise that Kodaks new 14mp camera and a lot cheaper than Canons
    It has repordedly near 9 mp of resolution and great colors.
    Low noise at high ISO and firewire.
    And takes all my nikon gear.

    Its a great camera.
    Ask anyone who uses one.

    To get correct color with no casts in portraiture I will either use raw mode
    and adj. in PS or use Cust. white bal. set off a Kodak grey card while
    firing the strobes?

    Sound good???

    What if I use a gold insert in the brollies(2).

    Remember I am trying to get rid of the pink and add a little gold to match
    the skin tones

    Not sure but I think you need the inverse of gold (neg) in order to
    ballance the cam for more gold in the shot. Probably photoshop and
    a printer (and some testing) could serve you.

    For example if you wanted to get rid of pink then a pink card would
    be used... etc. At least I think that's right.

    low noise, 12mp, asa 1600 to 100.
    what is your camera with more than 12 mp?

    any digital camera is obsolete the year it comes out.
    they work perfectly anyway.

    using studio strobes and a blue seamless background?
    will auto handle a color mix like that?

  7. The S2 is a 6 megapixel camera.
    There's nothing clearly better in its space even now, I agree. (The
    Kodak DCS 14n is a studio camera, not general purpose; doesn't handle
    low light at all well. The Canon 1Ds is really cool but is in such a
    different price class that they're not alternatives to each other.)
