    So does the Pro1.

    I just realised that the S2 IS and S3 IS uses SD card as compared to the S1 IS which uses CF card.

    Agree that it actually looks very pretty in black. A real pity that it still don't have a hotshoe, otherwise will be almost perfect. But overall doesn't seem a much of an improvement over the S2.

    Nice! Black is nice, but looking from the basic specs, doesn't seem to have much improvement from the S2.

    No manual focusing and zooming. Exterior looks just like the S2 IS but it's only black.

    Only a higher ISO rating, a slightly larger screen and it's 6MP now. Also have 16:9 aspects ratio, the ability to use higher shutter speeds at sports mode and the ability to take pics while recording movies! It's call MovieSnap. May have other improvements though
