There isn't such thing as "crop factor" for p&s cameras -because
sensor covers full image projected by the lens at it's actual focal length.

So my Canon A650IS camera with it's lens set to 7.4mm gives the same
field of view as a 35mm lens would on a 35mm film camera. Therefore
it's "crop factor" is a little less than 5.

Actually, Bogdan has it right, there's nothing to crop from the fixed lens. You're confusing crop factor with equivalent FOV.
