Thumbs up Less newsworthy Canon P&S's...

Officially released, finally, when Canon Rumors has known they've been coming for quite some time now...

Sure, just when I thought an SX100 with CHDK was the ultimate "travel" sized superzoom, they decide to prove me wrong...

Looks like 28mm equiv. wide is never going to enter the mainstream.

I have seen an SD800 IS used for $200, maybe time to scoop it up. The SD870 IS is only $240 new but I'm not sure I want to deal with yet more pixels on that small a sensor. Need to read up on the image quality comparisons.

They'll probably save this for the S51 IS (? on the name), which rumor has it should be coming out any time.

(My thought is it will be a total duplicate of the Panny FZ28 that takes AA's instead of a Li-ion.)

Edit: Just looked at Canon Rumors and they're now saying it will be called the SX1S. They also caught a G10 leak: http://www.canonrumors.com/images/G10.jpg
That page has now been hidden.
