If you were holding out for new ELPHs this fall, you'll have to keep waiting or pick from what's already available. However, if you're looking for something a little less expensive and don't mind some added bulk, the new A1000 IS and A2000 IS could be for you. Both are 10-megapixel cameras with image stabilization (hence the IS), run on two AA batteries, and feature Canon's ease-of-use settings found in its other A-series models. However, the A1000 has a 4x optical zoom, 2.5-inch LCD, and comes in gray, blue, gold, and purple, and the A2000 is a two-tone silver with a 6x optical zoom and 3-inch LCD.
The PowerShot A1000 IS will sell for $199.99, and the A2000 IS will set you back another $50. Look for them in September.
