For much of the past fifteen years serious photographers have puzzled over exactly what digital photography was going to be when it grew up. The answer to that question is very complicated, but the past can provide some clues. Every so often a camera comes along that offers an iconic convergence of design, performance, and usability – like the Exacta VX, the Nikon F, the Pentax K1000, the Kodak DCS-100, the Nikon D1, the Olympus C3030, Sony F717, or the Canon EOS 300D. The new Nikon Coolpix P5100 isn’t worthy of place on that list, but it offers an important clue as to where this new technology is going.
Canon has issued a product advisory for the Powershot A650 IS. Some models are affected by light leakage when using the Variangle LCD in bright sunlight. Canon is correcting the issue, free of charge, at their Factory Service Centers.
The just introduced Canon Powershot G9 is Canon's flagship point & shoot digital camera. Like the iconic Leica CL/Minolta CLE film cameras of the seventies, Canon's "G" series digital cameras are elegant, relatively compact, and completely self-contained imaging tools capable of producing professional quality images. The new G9 features 12 megapixel resolution, the DIGIC III processor, a bright 3.0 inch LCD screen (and an optical viewfinder), an excellent 6X optical zoom, optical image stabilization, improved Face Detection AF, a dedicated hot shoe for Canon Speedlites, and improved ergonomics.
Canon’s newly-introduced Powershot A650 IS has been anointed their new "top-of-the-line" A series offering, and Canon has packed a wealth of features into the camera to back up that ad copy. 12MP, DIGIC III processing, Face Detection focus/exposure technology, a 6X optical zoom (35-210mm) with optical image stabilization and a 2.5 inch variable angle LCD monitor are a few of the goodies to be found in the A650 IS.
