I don't see this on Canon's site, did popphoto let it loose a little early?

http://www.popphoto.co​m/photonews/5497 (external link)

Canon has today announced the Canon Powershot G10 (SRP: $499), a 14.7 megapixel luxe-class compact digital camera as the replacement to the popular G9. The G10, along with the other compact cameras announced today, is powered by the Digic 4 processor.


Key upgrades and features of the G10 include:

-True 5x zoom wide angle lens (28-140mm equivalent.)
--Face Detection can recognize profiles.

-14.7 megapixel capture

-RAW format files editable in Canon Digital Photo Pro (instead of ZoomBrowser/Imagebrows​er like the G9)

-ISO up to 1600 with binned pixels lo-rez 3200 scene setting

-ISO dial now wraps around mode dial.

-Exposure Comp has own dial to left of the hotshoe (where the ISO dial was on the G9.)

The Canon Powershot G10 will be available in October 2008. Stay tuned to PopPhoto.com for a full test of this cool new compact camera.

That's about 8 more megapixels than I reckon we need, but oh well. No change to the sensor? I heard some speculation that they might upgrade it.

Curious to see the rest of it.

14.7MP in a tiny sensor? Man, I wonder how the noise will be like. I heard digic 4 handles noise better from the 50D articles, but the MP race is becoming silly.
In a year or so, little digicam will be having 16MP.

...and be almost completely unusable as a result. :(

The MP war doesn't bother me in the least as long as the images that come out of it are decent enough to print out a 4x6 and stick it in a frame or album.

I'd like to know if they addressed the supposed "vacuum" affect of their lens retraction mount though. That seemed to be a major sticking point in the G9's quality control for a while.

If I only wanted to print 4x6" size, I wouldn't want to waste $$$ on a 15 MP camera. The reason I got the G9 was so we could print larger sizes, so far up to 24 x 36", and have the sharper details. My older A620, 7 MP, still produces excellent images that can be printed larger also. Why do we need 15 MP if all we want to print is 4x6"? We need less MP than 15, less noise, and more dynamic range, IMO.

Obviously, Pop Photo jumped the gun! I think the G10 will come with the renamed 5D successor in Sept.

Take it easy Dennis! You buy you're cameras for a specific reason, great. More power to you. Me, I would buy a P&S strictly for carry-around snapshots. Less artistic merit, more just getting the shot.

Anyways.

who said anything about 4x6? I print larger than that with my G9 all the time and would want to do the same with the G10.

That said, I'm not interested in more MP at the expense of more noise.

I've been looking for a used G9 but I think I'll wait and see what the G10 tests out like. I just want another camera that I can use for pics while out on my motorcycle. Carrying a DSLR on a bike is way too much trouble but this means I miss lots of pics I'd like to have.

Hopefully if it now will be possible to process G10 RAW on DPP that will allow the G7 and G9 in the door there too.
