According to Canon's website:

Movie: 640 x 480 (30 fps), 320 x 240 (30 fps) available up to 4GB or
60 minutes

Yep, that's right.

It is somewhat odd that they wouldn't at least keep the higher res video from the G9 (even if it was a slower frame rate). Knocking a feature OUT of a new model is never a good idea, as "typical" consumers feel they have lost something and it therefore in their minds makes it less of a value as the older model.

Likewise, it also seems strange that one of the new megazoom SX models gets the new consumer-sized CMOS chip, but the G10 does not (?). Seems like odd marketing logic to me that the flagship G-series would be dumbed-down in features compared to the previous model, as well as compared to other models in cheaper Canon series. Oh well, I don't try to understand marketing folks anyway. LOL
