New bundle for PowerShot G2, numerous updates to pricing as well...
Canon USA Inc. has today announced updated pricing for several models in its PowerShot S-, A- and G- series digital cameras, along with a new bundle for the PowerShot G2. Changes are as follows:
You heard it here first!
- Canon PowerShot S30 and S40 both reduced in price by $100. The S30 is now listed at $499, whilst the S40 lists for $699.
- The PowerShot G2, first announced at $899, also gets a $100 price-cut for a new list price of $799. A new bundle is also announced, similar to the G2 Black bundle available in Europe in which the camera features a new black body color. However, where the European bundle includes a Microdrive, Canon USA opted to bundle the new G2 Black a 96MB CompactFlash card and a leather case.
- Pricing and availability information is now becoming available for the recently announced A-series digital cameras. The PowerShot A100 will list for $179, and the A40 for $299 - both of these cameras being available within the next couple of weeks. Pricing is still not decided for the PowerShot A30, which we hear will be shipping around June 2002.
