Jeff Keller finalises his review with info from production-level cameras...
Jeff over at the Digital Camera Resource Page website has now updated his combo-review of the Canon PowerShot S30/S40 digital cameras with sample images and info from production-level cameras. Jeff originally posted his review on October 1st; offhand we're not sure if the conclusions have been updated (this article is being written at 35,000 feet on the way to Comdex, so we don't have a 'Net connection to check!) but the current review concludes:
"While the PowerShot S30 and S40 are what I call "putting the same camera in a different case with a new name", it's not a bad thing here. That's because they're based on the excellent PowerShot G2, and they've arrived with most of the G2 features intact. That includes full manual controls, excellent photo quality, a capable movie mode, and lots of preset "scenes" for easy shooting. Oh, and they're easy to fit in your pocket too. If you want to use accessory lenses or an external flash, you'll want to consider the G2 instead. But these two are excellent choices that I definitely recommend."
