ART Canon S95 - any idea on when this will drop or when the next model comes out?

Wobistdu

Little sick of this thing lingering around $350-$400 for far too long. Any idea on when it will drop due to a new model? The s95 has been out for a while now.

i wanted to get an s95 for my europe trip
but the sony tx10 looks much better
and then pentax just released the new optio rz18
it looks really nice (i like plain/simple design :o) and has 18x zoom :eek3:

The S100 (or whatever they call it) will be announced sometime in the near future (that's as specific as I can get) and I know our store has already dropped it to $339 (currently sold out) in anticipation of it's replacment...

And yeah, the Optio's are cool cameras, but they are plagued by HORRIBLE build quality. Pentax's high end P&S seriously feel like Canon AA cameras.

what's the latest recommendation other than s95 for high iso capability?

The Powershot HS series are pretty solid. They've been a good seller, work well at higher ISO's as long as you're not a pixel peeping cunt that's going to be like, "Oh... this has noise at ISO 1600..." like some of my customers are.

Bottom line, they're point and shoots, none of them are great at high ISO's compared to DSLR's.

I'm also kind of anxious to see what the Fuji X10 is going to be like. It's a smaller sensor, but Fuji's been coming up with some pretty revolutionary shit lately, I think I'm going to pick one up when they come out.

there's no G12 replacement this year, either.
