Cool, what about...

Loved the review for the A650 IS - so much I bought one. Very pleased with it, easy to use and great results.

However - quoting from the review - "The DIGITAL port connects USB 2.0 (high-speed) to the computer for download and camera control with the RemoteCapture software"

The Remote capture feature is the sole reason for buying another camera. This is not a faeture of the A650 IS. Canon have confirmed this.

The PS remote doesn't seem to do the job either.

Does the reviewer know something I don't or a way of achieving this, or was it an incorrect assumption?

Thanks, Tony

Please don't cross post the same questions to multiple threads, especially one that has nothing to do with your question (this one, which is a post about a Service Notice). That way, the responses to a question are all in the same place.
