Default Digital cameras going wide screen?

I know that many of the newer camcorders which are out now record in wide screen format, but has anyone seen any digital cameras that take photos in wide screen format? I can't seem to find any and was wondering if they exist yet?

the only downside to the canon S3 IS is thats its only 6-megapixel, which it was more tho coz its got loads of things you can do with it

once you get up above about 4 Megapixels, i think the quality of the photos depends more on the quality of the lens, and the processor inside the camera than just megapixils. i could be wrong though, just think i read that someplace before.


edit...quick question,,do you have to set it to widescreen every time you turn the camera on, or can you set it to widescreen and have it stay on that setting regardless of whether you turn the camera off and on?

i wouldnt no that, your prob right, but if you have the money get the Canon EOS 400D, 10.1 Megapixel, its going for about 600 i think, maybe less, my dad was looking to get it for ages but he got the canon S3 IS instead from ebay, didnt cost much and came with a 2GB SD card
