Canon offers this year a 5 Mega Pixel version of its successful Digital Elph Line - Canon S500 ().

The S500 is adding a megapixel to the popular S400 Digital Elph. It measures 3.43 x 2.24 x 1.09 inches and weighs 6.5 ounces (without batteries).

The 5-megapixel PowerShot S500 can capture 2592 x 1944 images for poster-size prints. It also has 1600 x 1200, 1024 x 768, and 640 x 480 resolution modes. The 3x optical zoom lens has a focal length of 7.4-22.2mm (35mm equivalent: 36-108mm). It also has a 4.1x digital zoom.

The Canon S500 is still slightly bigger than the super slim Sony DSC-T1.
