Cost Performace

Powershot S45 has the same case, lens, CCD sensor, LCD, control layout as of S40. Internals of the camera has changed significantly. You can notice this when you use it. Quick control of photographic settings such as the exposure compensation, white balance ISO sensitivity, drive mode etc.
