Alright, rounding things out, Canon dropped four new cameras on us today, including that
EOS-1Ds Mark digital SLR that we speculated about
yesterday, the PowerShot SD20, the PowerShot SD200, and the PowerShot SD300. Here's the dirt on each of them:
Just like everyone expected, the EOS-1Ds Mark II is Canon's 16.7 megapixel follow-up to the EOS-1Ds, which bumps up the megapixel count by nearly six million and sports faster continuous shooting of 4 fps. Other upside: a new 802.11g attachment so you can wireless beam your photos back to a PC over a WiFi network (yep, Nikon has one of those, too).

Canon's smallest five megapixel digital camera, the PowerShot SD20 will come in four different colors (they even have faux impressive-sounding names like Platinum Silver, Midnight Blue, Bordeaux Red and Storm Grey) and is really small and all that, but they cut one big corner to get there: no optical zoom lens.

Except for the difference in resolution, the threemegapixel PowerShot SD200 and the four megapixel PowerShot SD300 (pictured above) are essentially the same camera. Both have a 3x optical zoom lens and are just eight-tenths of an inch thick.
