IXUS 50, the new 40

Canon has been producing some very nice digital SLRs recently and the D350 is especially evident. Being comparable to the D20 in capabilities yet the price is completely affordable by most prosumers. Yet, i have no time and heart to purchase such a prized camera for several reasons. firstly, it's large and bulky. i want something that i can take around and pocket where ever i go. secondly, it's serious. i don't have the time to put it into good use. having said that, i feel that a ultra compact point and shoot which produces awesome quality is the way to go. i searched high and low finally coming to the conclusion that the little sibling ixus 50 is just the camera for me. i have always been loyal to SONY, with the pro V1, the P5 etc. but times have changed and i can no longer stand the memory stick with all it's inconveniences. playing around with the Canon i am taken away by its gorgeous design because it has never been the strength of Canon to produce good looking compacts. leave the designs to Sony, fujifilm, even Nikon, but not Canon. the metal casing with 3X optical zoom, 5 MP resolution and the new DigicII image processor i feel that the ultimate compact has arrived. the new processor allows the 50 to start up, take shot to shot and review photos at blazing speeds. no longer known for the slow start up times, we can focus on the quality photos Canon cameras are known for. also with a 2 inch large LCD screen, pict bridge and 9 point AF, i can't wait to make my purchase and have it in my pocket at all times. the real tipping point came when i found out that an underwater housing (AW DC30) can be purchased at around 100USD to take photos at up to 10 feet. basically not a diving casing (those cost hundreds more) but rather a casing i can use to protect the camera when i go to the beach and swim or surf. all psyched up to capture some good surf photos.
