In the DigitalCameraReview.com forums last week, one of our members posted about stumbling upon a one-off Canon SD model on Target.com. As it turns out, the PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital ELPH that leaked out on the retailer's site was actually one of a batch of pre-PMA releases from Canon announced late this evening.
Nikon and Canon have dominated the professional DSLR market since the beginning of the digital revolution, effectively condemning Olympus, Pentax, Panasonic, Leica, and Sony DSLRs to second tier status. That's too bad because there are some really exciting and very pro-capable digital SLRs on that second tier, including the new 10.1 megapixel, 4/3 sensor format Olympus E-3.
Online retail giant Amazon.com released its year-end "Best of 2007" list today, and both Canon's Powershot A570 IS and Adobe's Photoshop Elements 6 made the cut.
For much of the past fifteen years serious photographers have puzzled over exactly what digital photography was going to be when it grew up. The answer to that question is very complicated, but the past can provide some clues. Every so often a camera comes along that offers an iconic convergence of design, performance, and usability – like the Exacta VX, the Nikon F, the Pentax K1000, the Kodak DCS-100, the Nikon D1, the Olympus C3030, Sony F717, or the Canon EOS 300D. The new Nikon Coolpix P5100 isn’t worthy of place on that list, but it offers an important clue as to where this new technology is going.
