Default is there a canon p&s that meets the following criteria?

hi all. the basis of comparison is my trusty but aging (in terms of picture quality) sd750.

here is the short list.

1. continuous shooting speed of at least 1.5 fps (NON-negotiable)
2. small compact size (s90 about as big as i can put up with, and that's pushing it)
3. 3 inch NON-widescreen lcd (i will grudgingly settle for a 2.7 non-wide lcd)
4. at least a digic 4.


all that said, if there is another brand/model worth comparing it to, please bring it up. OR - i'd almost be willing to go backwards to an older model that has all of the above.

THANK YOU!!!!

ps: i know the sd4000is is/should be out soon. i certainly hope costco decides to carry it too. i'll keep my fingers crossed as they seem to bring on the top and newest canon models, like the sd3500, s90...

S90 is sub 1fps at .9
SX210 varies depending on the light from .7 to 2.5fps
SD3500 is only .9 also

You will need to move to a larger camera for higher burst rates.

Older and larger, the answer would be the Canon SX1 with a CMOS sensor.

Dennis-

I agree 100%, but camera size is a critical issue to the OP. BTW are you also "yooperguy" on dpreview?? Same style of posts.

thanks all. just an fyi post to end this, for now. just tried out a panasonic zs6. meets all reqs, except the speed. the old sd750 still beat it. as of this am, after more hunting, i think the sony tx7 fits my needs. minor gripes, yes. for what i need it to do for ME, i think it's a match.
