Canon S500 vs. S60?

by grafikelement / February 24, 2004 5:22 AM PST

I know the S500 is coming out in April but will there be an S60? I have an S50 now. Is it worth getting the S500 for extra portability? I wonder if the image quality should be exactly the same since the S500 uses the same CCD as the S50. If you know any Canon rumors about an upcoming S60, please let me know. Thanks million!

hey thanks a lot! i have the s50 right now. is it worth selling my s50 and pay a bit more to get the s500? it should be just the same quality since it uses the same CCD. i don't fuss with the manual settings anyways... i'm just worried that the flash won't be all so great on the s500...

I don't see any great improvement in going from the S50 to the S500.

The flash for the S500 is weaker than the S50.
S50 - 13.1 feet
S500 - 11.4 feet

The lens quality of the the S500 may be slightly better.

The S500 is physically smaller.

Too close to call.
