It's the SAME 1/2.5".

The only difference is the fact it jumped 1MP.. A good example of this not working is comparing the A610 and 620.. There's differnce (not positive) when squishing an additional 2MP out of the same size sensor.

Being the same size doesn't mean it's the same sensor.

$300.!!! thats a sweet deal. I would rather have the S3 because its black. It looks more like an SLR doesnt look like a cheezy P&S being black.



So its 1MP more with the same sensor? so what if i use the image size that the S2 max size is? will it make it the same quality? If the S2 and S3 are both set at say 1024X768 will they take the same quality images?

On 4/13 I bought one from Dell for $284 after the coupons (free shipping and had to pay taz), and it shipped from Dell the same day! Should be here any minute now!
