Mostly out of curiosity, what meaning does the model designation on Canon's Powershot cameras signify? I don't really see anything on Canon's web site to give me general idea of what's what.For instance Canon has the following product lines # = 1 digit, ## = 2 digits, ### = 3 digits),A##,A###,G#,S#,S##,S###,SD##,SD###,I've heard that the A series is called that because it takes AA batteries but what's the basic difference between an A20 and and A200?G seems like a midsize line.It looks like SD means a compact camera that takes SD cards with the SD## being smaller and the* SD### somewhat larger. S1,S2, S3 are big zoom cameras that resemble DSLRs. (I bought a S3 2 months ago)I have no idea what the S## and S## lines are about other than being compact.So it's it the lens? The sensor? The processor? What makes each line what it is?
