Kodak S-1 PDF User Manual
Did you lose or misplace the instruction manual that came with your Kodak PixPro S-1? It happens all too easily, but fortunately Kodak makes a soft copy available that you can browse through online, print out, or download (see the pdf file below). It is certainly good practice to carefully familiarize oneself with the many different functionalities and options that the S-1 offers, and the official user manual is without doubt an authoritative and comprehensive source of respective information.
That said, the instruction booklet can be a dry read, so that a dedicated camera guide book from a professional photographer that illustrates the camera's core functions in a real life photography context can be a very helpful complement. Yes, getting one of these camera guides (see here at amazon) would involve an additional expense, but if that book helps to exploit the camera's potential to the full, the (small) additional investment may well be worth it.
In any case, the S-1 is an advanced imaging tool, whose many features merit serious attention. This mirrorless interchangeable lens camera was officially introduced on January 18th, 2012, which means that, as of today, the camera is 3911 days old (young?). The camera has meanwhile been discontinued, but there has not been a direct replacement model for the S-1 from Kodak.

Kodak S-1 FAQ
Below are some additional questions and answers concerning some particular features of the S-1.
What type of imaging sensor is used in the S-1?
The camera is build around a CMOS (Complementary Metal–Oxide–Semiconductor) sensor.
What is the ISO sensitivity range of the S-1?
The camera has a native sensitivity range from ISO 200 to ISO 12800.
Does the camera have a selfie-friendly screen?
Yes, the LCD-screen of the S-1 is flexible and can be turned to be front-facing for capturing selfies.
What is the life expectancy of the shutter in the Kodak PixPro S-1?
Kodak does not publish a shutter rating for the S-1. Yet, shutters in comparable cameras from other manufacturers are said to be good for at least 100 000 actuations. It should be noted, though, that this number represents a Mean Time before Failure. The shutter might fail earlier, or it might last longer. Anyway, in order to exhaust an expected shutter life of 100 000 shots over, say, three years, one would have to take about 100 pictures each and every day.

Does the Kodak S-1 support the Ultra High Speed (UHS) bus interface for SD cards?
