EXCLUSIVE: This from an anonymous source, I've received a photograph of Canon's S10, a 2.1 megapixel A50 look-alike. News from various sources contradicts itself, some say this is simply a mock-up prototype, some say it's product and will be launched in a month or so. Only time will tell.
Specifications known so far
- 1/3" 2.1megapixel CCD (1600 x 1200)
- 35-70mm (2x) lens (F2.6 - F4.0)
- Shutter speed range: 1/6s - 1/750s
- Range: 9cm (macro)
- TTL autofocus
- ISO 100/400
- 2" LCD
- Optical Viewfinder
- NiMH battery pack
- CompactFlash storage (not confirmed Type I / II)
- USB, RS232 and Video-out connectivity
- Same dimensions as A50
IF this is a real product then it could be very competitive, even with the limited 2x lens, it's very small and compact (same size as A50) with a 2 megapixel CCD, NiMH battery pack and USB connectivity.. A handy zoom digicam you could carry everywhere.
As soon as I can confirm any other info on this camera you know it'll be published.
