Aren't all canons imported to n.a.?

it's an import... wonder what that means? could be the reason that
we all missed any announcements from Canon...

I could be wrong, but I can't imagine Canon letting the S50 be
their standard bearer for the pixel crown in the prosumer catagory.
Actually, someone in the Canon DSLR Forum posted that he was told
by a "Canon employee" that G4 will be released soon, but did not
say anymore.

Anyone else see the s50 on Walmart.com?? It is black body and is 5
mp and 3x optical zoom. I just happen to come across it today. Any
info would be helpful.

Cut and paste from the Walmart website:

Key Features and Description
*

Lens: 3x optical zoom and 4x digital zoom Image Storage Format:CompactFlash Type I or II memory cards (32
MB included)
Display: 1.8-inch color LCD screen

Additional Features

12 shooting modes including aperture or shutter speed priority,
night scene and movie
9-point auto focus for crisp images regardless of where the
subject appears in the image frame
12 shooting modes from fully automatic to fully manual Built-in flash with red-eye reduction
5 digital photo effects including sepia and black-and-white Self timer with 2 or 10-second delay
USB connection Audio/video output

Looks to me like the S-45 with a 5 MP CCD. Probably pretty noisy.

It's interesting that it appears on the Walmart website with nary a
word on the digital sites. Obviously it's not released yet but I'll
bet we'll see the announcements from Canon in a day or so. I bet
they have a G-5, too.
