Re: very bad service
Hello, you probably set the resolution low. In auto mode push set and select normal, fine,or superfine. Push down and select either L, M1, or M2. To change video back click set and select standard. Please rate my answer. I hope this helps!

The problem could still be within the batteries, digital cameras are very demanding. For example, if an alkaline battery stops working in a camera, very often the battery is still plenty good, and will work fine in other devices such as a flashlight. So before you give up on it try a brand new quality battery, I like the modern rechargables.
Open up your battery door, and you'll notice another tiny door labeled "CR1220". Pry open that door with your fingernails, and you'll find a little button watch battery that keeps the time settings for your camera. It's time for a new battery. Take that little battery down to your local drug store (Walgreens or Rite-Aid). Should only cost about $4. Note that Walmart is more expensive for these type of batteries, and drug stores are usually cheaper (I know, it's hard to believe).
the issue you describe seems to indicate that your product requires
repair service. Canon has excellent service options and we are eager to
provide any assistance you may need. Links to the service options that
are available for your product are listed below: ..."
You have to check for certain things.
1. First reset the camera settings by going to reset in settings.
2.While taking snap make sure the light is adequate by turning on the flash.
3. Keep the camera stable while clicking and click on two step....i.e first gently so that lens can auto focus then all the way to click.
A 1.3 hour movie is recorded on a DVD, not a CD. DVDs can hold a minimum of 4.7 GB, or nearly seven times the capacity of CDs. Your 867 MB file of 8.03 minutes indicates that you were recording at about 1,800 KB/sec, or the highest quality recording level. (See specifications here.) If you're willing to record your video in a smaller size, you can get much more recording on a CD.
Bad luck is that the CCD sensor in your camera has stopped working properly and needs replacing. You are lucky though because Canon repairs this fault on S1 - IS free of charge so phone them and inquire.
