Canon today announced its new #700/$899, 5-megapixel successor to the Powershot G3, the black or silver Powershot G5. Digital Photography Now seem to have the scoop on the new G5; they have several pictures of a real camera being handled by the site’s owner, Ian Burley.
Confusion still reigns over why the G4 name was missed out, with some websites commenting that the number 4 is undesirable in some parts of the world. Possible answers on a postcard please!
UPDATE: Having just read the Canon press release, the PowerShot G5 will be available from July 2003 for #679 RRP inc VAT. The PowerShot G5 1Gb Microdrive Kit will be available from July 2003 for #799 RRP inc VAT.
