EXCLUSIVE: This from an anonymous source, I've received a photograph of Canon's S10, a 2.1 megapixel A50 look-alike. News from various sources contradicts itself, some say this is simply a mock-up prototype, some say it's product and will be launched in a month or so. Only time will tell.

IF this is a real product then it could be very competitive, even with the limited 2x lens, it's very small and compact (same size as A50) with a 2 megapixel CCD, NiMH battery pack and USB connectivity.. A handy zoom digicam you could carry everywhere.

As soon as I can confirm any other info on this camera you know it'll be published.
