Nothing exciting - everyting as expected, but at least they start to announce products again. It will be interessting if they can deliver them at the time frame they mentioned (EF8-15 and Big Whites - BUMMER)

For the moment, everything is pointing to new PowerShots being announced tonight.
The next one is coming in October, more on that later.
NO DIGIC V?
TS-E 24mm @ f 3.5
So no G12 replacement?
I have an RS-4 for almost two months now and used it alot during a three week-trip to the US. I carried it with a backpack on dayhikes in Yosemite and the FastenR-3 never worked itself loose.
How have you managed to get both a backpack and a black rapid strap on at the same time?
I actually have done the same thing. I put the BlackRapid on first, then my backpack. The straps to overlap on the left side but there is no conflict on the right. It was just like using a BR strap normally.
Is this an unrealistic fear? I've thought about fastening some sort of a "safety loop" attaching the regular camera strap lugs to the Black Rapid strap. Anybody consider doing that, or do you all have complete confidence that the Black Rapid lug won't work itself look while the camera is dangling from it?
Making me even more paranoid is the fact that I use a battery grip, so in my mind there are two possible points of failure: the lug that attaches to the strap and the connection between the battery grip and the camera.
Also keep in mind that the average consumer wants the latest tech-gear. If they hear the lens was anounced almost a decade ago but Nikon's just last year (ok I think I made that up) they probably prefer the Nikon. Same reason why they update Rebels and Powershots every year.
True, but the 'average consumer' is not the target market for the EF-S 10-22mm. The average consumer would look at that lens and say, "Damn, that's expensive...why would I pay that much for just a lens when I can get a brand new T3i with a lens for the same price?!?"
well canon has updated the 18-55mm IS and there was no reason either.
beside a few pennys they save on production cost.
The 18-55mm IS is the Rebel kit lens - as such, Canon sells more of that lens than any other, and possibly more than all others combined. Saving a few pennies per lens is a very good reason for them to 'update' it. It makes sense for them to update best-selling lenses - the sub-$300 lenses, they gave the EF-S 55-250mm lens the same profit-generating update. The 10-22mm is a great lens, but not a real best-seller for Canon - most likely it would not be cost-effective to re-tool the production line for cosmetic changes.
...the S100 will have a longer zoom than the S90/S95 that came before (5x vs. 3.8x). Hopefully the S100 will continue with the f2 on the short end. The 5x would seem to indicate a wider short end on the S100 (24-120mm) than the 3.8x on the S90/S95 (28-105mm), or could they be thinking about adding it to the long end only (28-140mm)?
I hope it's the former. A 24-120mm (equivalent) S100 with f/2 at the wide end would induce me to upgrade from my S95. A 28-140mm (equivalent), bah, no thanks.
The Canon PowerShot S100 shows incredible features that make it a good choice for professional photographers. It is embedded with true 2-megapixel sensor for 1600 x 1200 pixel images, and 2-optical zoom lens that are professionally delivered by a tiny body. It shows a strong metal construction which provides great durability features. In addition, the lenses are provided with automatic covers that protect them when camera is not in use. The camera also features 5.4 to 10.8 mm zoom lens with a maximum aperture of f/2.8 to f/4.0, digital telephoto, shutter speed from 1 to 1/1,500 seconds, built-in flash with five distinct operating modes, sensitivity equivalent to ISO 100, CompactFlash type 1 image storage, and NTSC and USB ports. All these deliver an impressive photography tool which delivers excellent results.
