Seven new PowerShots at PMA from Canon

In addition to their new D-SLR, Canon is rolling out seven new PowerShot digicams according to their PMA press release. Nice to see a nod back to the older Pro 90 IS, with a couple of models sporting longer zooms. Gonna be an exciting week in Vegas...

Just finished reading the specs on the new cameras.

Thoughts on the Pro 1 in particular...
8mp? Yeah!

L series lens, Yeah! No image stabilizer? Booo! The S1 gets IS, why not the Pro 1???

2.5 fps for 6 frames? Meh. 1fps for 16 frames? Double meh...

Yay for the 28mm -200mm lens where most others in that category of camera start at 35mm, except the Minolta A1, which also has a 28-200mm lens (except WITH IS).

Why can't everyone make a 640x480 30fps movie mode? Why just 15fps?

Flip out 2" 253k pixel LCD? Yay!

Pricey.... But a lot of camera for the price. The Digital Rebel is the same price, but without a 28-200mm L series lens...

Props to Canon for including a 64mb card where other manufacturers are still putting in 16mb cards.

Still, the most important thing, image quality, remains to be seen. I doubt Canon will dissapoint there.

Canon is definitely looking to control the digicam market- and with the way they're going- it looks as if they may just pull it off......

...Canon stuff is just plain ole' good!!!!

Funny thing, about two days before this release, I was talking with a salesperson at a photo shop about how Canon (CANON!) had nothing in this market. Well, looks like they do now!
