What I noticed:

  • No viewfinder (bad)
  • Hi-res LCD (good)
  • Manual mode (good)
  • AA batteries (good)
  • Macro .39" (good)
  • 30 fps video (good)

Can you operate the zoom when using Movie Mode?

This is just the entry level super zoom upgrade, hopefully the S5 replacement will arrive very soon and eclipse these specs :)

No you cannot. I'm in the store right now trying this thing out.

Interesting, since the Wednesday announcement, we know more about the digic IV processor, lot more powerful, includes better picture noise handling etc.
From that video, we now know how much more powerful, the 5D needed 2 digic III processors, now they use just one Digic IV processor and they can do even more than they could with the two digic III's.

The "old" 5D has a single Digic II. The 1D3 and 1Ds3 have dual Digic III processors. Part of that was for the throughput. Using the 1Ds3 as a comparator, the Digic IV may be as much as 60% faster than the Digic III (2x Digic III chips to handle a 5 fps 21+ MP image (105MP/sec) rate vs. 1x Digic IV for 4 fps 21+ MP (84 MP/s) image rate). But the dual Digic III chips in the 1D3 line may not have been running at capacity, since the single Digic II in the 1DsII was handling 16.7 MP and 4 fps (66MP/s), which is faster than the Digic III chips in the 1Ds3 or 1D3 need to operate at.

Inclusion of video capability isn't necessarily an indication of increased power of the Digic processor; PowerShot models have had video capabilities with Digic, Digic II and Digic III processors. Canon just made several variants of the basic processor for the different camera lines. And we're really just seeing this here, as well, although the features of the low-end cameras may be creeping into the higher-end models. AF in Live View, I believe, isn't part of the Digic chipset, and that's where the biggest jump has been made

Wow, so older cameras can but this one can't? Seems like a fluke.

Um, no, this is a replacement for the SX100, not the S5.

My SD750 can zoom while in movie mode and like I said so can others. So, um...yeah.

I was just in Best Buy and saw this one firsthand. Something I thought was cool about the manual mode was that as you adjust your f-stop and shutter, it updates the image on the screen... Yes DSLRs have a DOF-button, but this is permanently enabled and accounts for shutter, so you can learn exposures without trial-and-error.

Plus, for a 10x zoom (f/2.8-4.3) as opposed to the EF-S f/3.5-5.6, and it's very compact! Starting to secondguess my very new XSi.

Don't get rid of your DSLR. It is nice to have a compact that can do what the SX 1xx series can do. They are very nice in a variety of situations, but there are times when a DSLR will kill it.
