Canon have lost me . . .
Sep 19, 2008

With the announcement of the SX10IS and SX1IS and even the G10, Canon have lost me.

Canon seems locked into the pixel count race; forever upping the pixels crammed into the same tiny sensor. Even Digic IV can't overcome the laws of physics. Image information coming from ever smaller pixels must include noise that will degrade the IQ.

If Canon was reading the market properly, it would see that the consumer is becoming more technically savvy and wants improved sensors, not more pixels.

I own a Powershot S3IS. At only 6 megapix, it gives great results in a variety of lighting conditions with very little noise.

I suspect that Canon feel the need to introduce new products to keep up with the pack while waiting for new technologies to emerge. The new cameras will no doubt sell well because of the badge across the front of the cameras. And that's what Canon does well . . . sell cameras!
