This page includes some useful tips I found in working with the S2.
Mirror Up Mode handheld
The Mirror Up Mode can be used handheld. While this often results in a minor framing difference, I found it be be exceptionally useful in shooting down to the 1/30 second range, though success at 1/30 second was less than at 1/45 and 1/60.
Set Mirror Up on, then press the camera firmly against your forehead, so that it is coupled to your gross body movements. At 1/45 second, at least one very sharp image almost always results out of three attempts when I work this way.
