My S1 IS never did that, and my S2 IS hasn't either. What you are describing
sounds quite usual. Do you have fresh batteries in it? I know that sounds
odd, but may be the cause.
I always used lithium AA cells in my S1 IS, and am using them exclusively in
my S2 IS. They provide very smooth power with a very flat discharge curve.
This means that when they are good, they are very very good, and when they
go dead, it happens very quickly.
