I can't find Canon putting it's latest innovation into a model where neither most users don't care about it nor it is neccessary. As far as I recall the 1D series where the ones to receive the new processor with (I think) the 50D beeing an exeption (1D III came shortly after)

True - and as has been pointed out, most P&S don't need anything more than the DIGIC IV at the moment.

Things probably point to a new processor in a 1DV or 1DsIV.  I doubt we would see the 5DIII before at least one of these is launched.

If the rumours about a full frame 1DV are true, then an interesting approach would be for Canon to launch the 1DV, which would give sports shooters and studio pros what they need, but allude to something bigger coming, and launch the 1DsIV a few months later, then a 5DIII after the dust has settled.  Of course, we are all just speculating.  If you add a 7DII after the 5DIII, that gives Canon a year's worth of high end DSLR announcements and the opportunity to create a lot of hype.

they could use digic v for higher quality video (the P&S and maybe better AF and in cam CA removal which might be good since lots of the P&S get shot jpg only)

I don't even see these tonight. CR must've gotten punked by a CR2 source now.
Maybe Canon is trying to find out the last of their moles by feeding disinformation or something and keeping really tight lips about the next cams this time.

don´t worry guys...  more time to fill your piggybank for the new cameras. :)

and you are not alone.

the nikon guys expected a BIG MEGAPIXEL announcement for  24. august and all they will get is more coolpix cameras as it seems.

..all Canon's major competitors announced a new "bridge" superzoom cam in 2011
The SX30IS is 1 year old.

It seems this small "pocket P&S" are a bit overrated in a way that "you" need 1000 models
of any kind, size and colours.

How big is the chance to see a new "bridge sz cam" within 2011?

maybe so
perhaps no DSLR from anyone until early 2012 then
still have yet to a single even slightly reasonable leak yet and it's awfully late in the game for the usual Aug/Sept announcements to have nothing yet so maybe 2012 it is for both camps (or an unusual late 2011 announcement).
