A series -- base models
S series -- middle range
G series -- top of the point and shoot line

I do not fully agree, Todd. The S45 and S50 are listed along with the
G3 and G5 on the Canon web site as high end digital cameras. The S400
is listed as a basic model.

More specifically it should read:

G series: Fully featured cameras not sacrificing features for size.
S series: Canon's most compact digital cameras. Features will vary.
A series: entry level cameras

However, there are TWO different S series. The ones with 2 numbers in
the name (S40, S45, S50) are actually just "more pocketable" cameras
that retain many of the features of the G-series cameras. In
particular, they have full manual exposure control.

The S-series camera with 3 numbers in the name (S100, S200, S230, S400)
are the particularly compact cameras. These are "auto only" small
cameras, and really not comparable to the other S series at all.

The A series is also divided into two. The 2-digit ones can be quite
capable cameras with manual modes and zoom lenses, despite being "entry
level". The 3-digit ones are simpler cameras with fixed focal length
lenses.

So it's best to think of Canon as having five lines of non-SLR digital
cameras. Representative models are G5, S50, S400, A80, A300.
