Canon A520 vs previous A series
 
Just wondering if anyone could inlighten me on the main differences between
the A510,A520 from Canon and the previous A75,A85 series. Are they just the
same but under a different model name? Other than the 4x zoom, don't see
much.

Don't they have 2 AA's versus 4 AA's?

Two of the hottest digital cameras of 2004 were the Canon PowerShot A75 and
A85. Both were superior to the competition thanks to their picture quality,
full manual controls, and expandability. For 2005 Canon has gone even
further with their replacements, the A510 ($199) and A520 ($299). Instead of
slapping new model numbers on the same old thing, Canon reinvented the A75
and A85 with some great new features, which include:

a.. 4X optical zoom lens (versus 3X on the old models)
b.. Smaller, more compact body
c.. Built-in "zoom flash" (more on this later)
d.. Support for an external slave flash
e.. Uses SD/MMC memory cards (versus CompactFlash)
f.. Uses two AA batteries (instead of four)
