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

I also (almost) always carry my S100. But on a recent trip to Palm Springs, I sometimes decided to not take it and use my Nokia 920 phone instead, just to see what would happen. It did quite well for a phone camera and sure was convenient. No wonder Canon is leaving the low-end market.

But last week, on Valentine's Day, my wife and I went to dinner and a movie and I left my current camera (Canon PowerShot s95) at home for the first time. I brought with me a new Apple iPad Mini. It's tiny but even in low light it takes an adequate photograph. See example below. This is what Canon are up against. Who wants to waste a couple of hundred dollars on yet another electronic device when they already have a camera built into their iPhone, iPad, iPod etc?
