And it is Canon's continued lack of improvement that leaves us with where they are today....bottom in sensor tech.


What a POJ!!! 3 mp ha! Canon must think it's the year 2000. :-) ( I love reading these old reviews to see how far digital has come) It's Canon's early use of CMOS tech that allowed them to become the top seller they are today.
