I do find it interesting that the video is 24fps and that 30fps isn't offered.[/url]
They need to leave space for the S96...  ::)

That might be.  I think someone else mentioned that they were wondering if there would be a quick replacement for it (don't remember who said that).  I would imagine that most companies leave a few things off that they could have put on so that they can upgrade later.  Don't get me wrong, I like the 24p...nice look, but I was just surprised as 30p is almost standard.  Ehhh...It's still such a good camera I'm not going to let it bug me.  If I can afford one I definitely will get one as it meets my needs.

Been shooting Canon compacts for about 8 years now, and I've kept track of just about every one! Nice new cameras, but nothing overly exciting. I wrote them up on my blog here: http://www.aputure.com/blog/2010/08/19/new-nikon-lenses-canon-compacts/

The SX line is moving in the right direction. I don't know what the hell they were thinking with the SD4500 IS...

This is a serious question, because I want to get a Powershot and have been looking at them.  Why are there so many models?  The SD4000 and the S95 seem very similar.  Several families - S, SD, SX, A, - overlaping price points, very similar features.

Has anyone sorted this all out?
6D | 7D  | EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM | EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM | EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM | EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS USM |
EF 35mm f/2 | EF 50mm f/1.4 | EF 85mm f/1.8

From Wiki:

A series: "Easy and Fun" budget cameras ranging from point-and-shoot to prosumer cameras
D series: waterproof, freeze- and shock-resistant
E series: design-oriented budget cameras
G series: flagship cameras with advanced features
S/SD series (also known as PowerShot Digital ELPH, Digital IXUS and IXY Digital): "Performance and Style" ultracompact point-and-shoot cameras
S/SX series: ultra-zoom cameras
S series: originally a series of compact point-and-shoot cameras, currently a series of prosumer cameras slotting beneath the G series

Not sure that helps, though.   ;)

Specifically, for the SD4000 vs. S95, see THIS.  Basically, the S95 and forthcoming G12 are the logical choices from someone used to shooting with a dSLR - RAW capability, good manual controls, etc. 
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses
