The widest setting will likely be 24mm (equ) just like the SX30 predecessor. The long end will be 840mm. Looks like the SX40 will gain the BL-CMOS sensor from the 100HS, 300HS, and 500HS, and the SX30 will pass it's sensor down to the SX150, and 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)? Another inch forward for the Powershots, yippee. Honestly though, I think Canon makes the absolute best P&S cameras on the market so little improvements don't really bother me.

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.

Any idea on when the s100 might be released and for how much?

The G12 won't be replaced. Later next year a new EVIL camera from Canon will appear.

I like fotoloco's thought process. With the body size of the G-series cameras I see no reason Canon cannot make a ILC with a larger sensor and maintain the body size (or less) and have conciderably better IQ (albeit without the collapsable lens). The G-series are consistent amongst the most expensive P&S cameras, and as long as they don't raise the price much, it shouldn't get into the entry-level SLR range.

+1 on the 24-120mm
although I don't own a P&S yet I might get one within the next year.

Names don't really matter for me, but Canon has to find a different name for the S95 replacement. There already was a S100:

http://www.xcameras.net/canon-powershot-s100/

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.

Previous releases in the line have beleased in August but hard to find in stock, better availability in September. Prices have been pretty steady at $400 MSRP.

I still maintain that the EOS IX form-factor would be great in this market segment...



EOS IX: 132 x 80 x 59 mm, 485 g (with battery)
PS G11: 112.1 x 76.2 x 48.3mm, 355g (without battery)
Lumix G2: 124 mm x 84 mm x 74 mm, 428 g (with battery)

I was thinking the same thing also. I owned S100, which is at least 10 years ago, as far as I remember.

May be they will call it S100HS this time ;)

So no G12 replacement?
Just because there's no rumor, it doesn't mean there's no replacement coming. But remember: Even if there's a rumor, there isn't necessarily a product coming.

The s100 that is suggested would probably cover everything the G series would do. For the G series they'd have to go back to the drawing board... especially with 4/3 and the x100 as competition.

I think there must be a couple of typos in this rumor (or it's a really bad rumor):

Here are the old cameras being replaced:
SX30 IS - 14mp - 35x
SX130 IS - 12mp - 12x
S95 - 10mp - 3.8x

So just based on the above, the red below I think is likely incorrect:
SX40HS - 12mp - 35x Zoom
SX150 IS - 14mp - 12x Zoom
S100 - 12mp - 5x Zoom

I'm very interested in the SX40 IS. The two things I hope it has the SX30 doesn't:
- 1080p video
- Digic 5

And I REALLY wish (but already pretty sure it won't happen):
- CMOS

The SX150 designation would make sense if Canon is following the same path with the SX1xx as with the SX2xx, where the SX220 is apparently a version without GPS not sold in the US so that for US consumers the series designation appears to skip from SX210 to SX230.

Any thoughts on why the SX150 would not have a 14X zoom -- the SX1xx series had seemed to follow the SX2xx lens changes (after, of course, the SX2xx series was introduced.)

Surprised there isn't more information on the next G series. Also, should be interesting if Canon reduces the overall size of the G series.

However, if Canon is coming out with a mirrorless model next year, would they phase out the G series and have the G12 just continue on until the introduction?

What on with a 35x zoom? Assuming 50mm = 1x, that's 1750mm!

Those consumer cameras seem just to add extra features that mom and pop just eat up
Sorry, my first post here..

Confirmed by who? There is no trace of new cams.
Which source confirmed this?
