PowerShot Info

EOS 5D SR
As if those cameras need a megapixel bump. Beats me why would anyone want a P&S with more than 12MP.
I believe the G11 and G12 dropped down to 10MP. I'm hoping Canon bumps it back up a little, but with improved image quality.

Simple. Merely alter the laws of physics such that a zoom lens which can project a FF image circle can fit into a P&S-type form factor. Or, maybe they could do it now with a 35-80mm f/8-16 lens. I bet that would work for you, right?
Sarcasm not needed. Full frame not likely or needed, but APS-C is certainly doable. Interchangeable lens rangefinder type (similar form to the Fujifilm X-100). A couple of wide-angle and normal primes or a narrow range zoom made especially for the camera, plus an adapter to mount Canon's telephotos would be a dream come true.

I'm waiting for a PowerShot that will replace my 4x5 view camera. I'm sure that Canon has the technology to make a camera that is smaller than the sensor. :D :D

a FF in the smaller camera possible , we dont care for a few mm more or less, but a real sensor not a confetti
the G10 was crap in a sexy body

Check out the last generation of film P&S's. It's been 10 years but, as I recall, the smallest were about the same size as my G10, maybe a little larger.

More megapixels? Please God, no!

If anyone would like more megapixels, I will gladly trade my G9 for a G12. Any takers? Two extra megapixels! Yum! :D

Maybe a bit smaller. I had one of these (still might have it in a drawer somewhere, in fact):



It's not much bigger than some of the A-series PowerShots, and while it's about as wide as your G10, it's shorter and shallower. It was splash-proof, too - nice feature in a small, convenient camera!
