And that is the SX130IS.
Taking IS away from the A1200 is the kind of crippling Canon does on purpose.
Now there's no new model that is pocketable, takes AAs, and has IS.

I'm pretty sure Canon will find a way to mess with the SX130IS, probably taking away the AA batteries and possibly manual control in the SX140IS.

The only thing they can improve on with the SX130IS is a Backlit CMOS which may deliver better IQ at higher ISO's, the MP should stay at 12. As far as the A1200 Canon should at least bring IS back in the A1300.

I sure miss the days when there's was always plenty of new cameras to look at and want to get. Now there aren't any.
Thank God for eBay.
