Glad I held out getting a S90, hopefully for Jan/Feb announcements we'll see a D20/D30.

Lovely! Since it has been shown that I don't know how to take sharp pictures with a high end camera I think I'll sell all the bodies and lenses that I own and buy one of these babies! Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!

Wow. Not only did they manage to not improve the ergonomics after a year of complaints about them, they went out of their way to make them *worse* by removing the spot on the back where your thumb goes.

I...just don't even know what to say. It's just really, really disappointing.

Hm... what are the differences of SD4500 / IXUS 1000 and S95 compared to their predecessors? Ok, HD video as far as the S95 is concerned, but what else?  ???

New low light modes

Shoot in darker situations with f/2.0 aperture and the HS System
The PowerShot S95 includes Canon’s HS System – a combination of a high-sensitivity 10.0 Megapixel CCD sensor and powerful DIGIC 4 processing, which provides exceptional low light performance even better than that of its predecessor. The HS System enables the camera to support a maximum ISO of 3200 at full resolution and works to reduce the occurrence of noise at all ISO speeds for high quality images. Users can also set their own parameters in Auto ISO mode, with the ability to limit the maximum ISO speed they want to employ during shooting.

Using Low Light mode, the camera can also achieve an extended ISO range from ISO 320 to ISO 12800, capturing images at 2.5MP resolution. Manual control of ISO settings and white balance in Low Light mode also provide greater control over shots taken in darker conditions, allowing users to accurately capture the ambience of a dimly-lit environment exactly as they see it. Low Light mode also enables higher speed shooting, capturing up to 3.9 shots per second so a moment is never missed.

As well as providing the ability to shoot without the flash and still achieve correctly-exposed shots, the PowerShot S95’s high-sensitivity sensor offers a greater dynamic range compared to conventional sensor types. Tonal range representation is improved as a result, allowing natural looking pictures to be captured in all conditions. A bright, f/2.0 genuine Canon lens perfectly complements the HS System, allowing more light into the camera and providing greater ability to use faster shutter speeds and freeze the motion of moving subjects

I wonder if anything like that will make it into the EOS bodies and if the 2.5MP mode (1/4 of 10MP) is the result of using pixel binning? I can't wait to see sample images from this.

The S95 sounds interesting. I'd really like a compact with a decent lens, and to be honest the main use for it would be indoors and on nights out where low light shooting would be essential.

I have wanted the Panasonic LX3 for a while, but their upgrade doesn't do it for me. The fixed f2.0 of this deffinitely gets my interest.

Fixed? Attached to the camera indeed, but it's f/2.0 - f/4.9.

The SD4500 IS / IXUS 1000 HS can optically zoom and auto focus during HD video recording, does anyone know if this is also possible with the S95 and the SX130 IS?

Cheers

Right, you'll only be shooting f/2 at 28 to probably 35 or something. Fixed it is certainly not.

I wish it was though...

Well, I am super excited!  I loved the S90, but didn't have the scratch to get one at the time.  I will be interested to see how it does w/ the HDR thing.  the HD video (even though it is "only" 720") is a nice addition for me as well.  Also excited to see how the Hybrid IS works on it.  Curious to see how much better the low light handling on this camera is from it's predecessor.

No super drastic changes, but it is a really nice set of additions to make a great camera even better.  Really hoping I will be able to get one of these this time around.  This is definitely better than a printer  ;D

That's me looking at the bullet points and not looking further into the specs. I guess f2.0-4.9 is acceptable as indoors you are going to have it wide open most of the time.

Still tempted with something like this.

It seems that Canon decided to become a unique company which produces new PHOTO cameras which have almost nothing PHOTOGRAPHICALLY new during past 2 years?! Really, let's have a look - T1i - only increased MPix, T2i - even more increased sensor MPix and slightly better ISO, Canon 7D - late answer to Nikon D300 - same sensor as T2i and 19 focus points (vs. 51 of D300, even D95 is believed to have 39), 5D Mark 2 - again increased sensor MPix and slightly better ISO 1D Mark 4 - far behind Nikon D3s in every aspect, except... availability. We got S95 tonight, which has only HDR feature new (again, I consider only related info). If cnet news is not fake then the same "upgrade" has G12.
Now we expect 60D wth swivel display and plastic body and possibly again same sensor as T2i.
Sorry guys, I really don't see any PHOTOGRAPHY related news here!

Yap. Let's wait until D95 and 60D are finally official. But if the D95 rumors are true, while the 60D remains with their xxD-typical-9-cross-type AF sensors than nikon wins this one. We'll see.

was just on DP Review and they mentioned that the back control wheel has a more positive "click" feel to it now.  I remember that annoying me on the old one, so that is a nice update.  Again, I know these aren't anything big, or maybe drastic is a better word, but I really do like them.

I do find it interesting that the video is 24fps and that 30fps isn't offered.

Ohh, and it also has the same external coating as the 7D.  Nice touch :)
