Re: Great news... my thoughts on why...

Honestly I'd be disappointed to see it- the Powershots and Elphs have been iconic digital cameras for over a decade, and they've mainly been so popular because they just work. No muss, no fuss, good results with a simple point and click.

I do think they go overboard with their models though. Even as an enthusiast, when I was looking for a new pocket cam, I got lost. What do they have now, the A1000, A2000, A3000, 100, 300, 500, sx100, sx200, sx500, sx700, n series, s series, g series, d series.....that is a CRAZY range of compacts.

I think if they shrunk it down to A, SX, S, N, G, D, that's still 6 different models- more than enough. How can people even decide what they're purchasing at this point?
