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.
The two new well-equipped additions to Canon's A line are the Powershot A650 IS and Powershot A720 IS. The A650 IS features 12.1 megapixel resolution, a 2.5 inch Vari-Angle LCD, 6x optical zoom with image stabilization, and a full set of shooting modes. The A720 IS shoots at 8 megpixels, has a 6x optical zoom lens with IS, and a 2.5 inch LCD. Both cameras will be available in September with the A650 IS retailing for $400 and the A720 IS retailing for $250.
The new Canon Powershot G9 may be the camera that everyone wanted the Canon G7 to be. The G9 gets a bit more resolution (12.1 megapixels), a larger screen (3 inches), and a RAW mode that everyone missed when the previous G series camera was announced. The Powershot G9 will be available in October for $500.
The speculation and rumors can finally end with the arrival of the Canon EOS 40D. The 40D can capture 10.1 megapixel images at continuous shooting speeds up to 6.5 frrames per second. It also gets a larger, more viewable, 3 inch LCD, improved durability, improved AF system, and enhanced Live View mode. The EOS 40D will be available in September 2007, both as a body-only for $1300 and as a kit (along with a EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens) for $1500.
There are two new additions to Canon's Digital Elph line, the Powershot SD950 IS and Powershot SD870 IS. Both new cameras, as you can tell by their names, have image stabilization, the familiar compact design, etc. The SD950 IS is a 12.1 megapixel camera with a 2.5 inch LCD while the SD870 IS is an 8 megapixel camera with a 3 inch LCD. Both cameras will be available in September 2007. The SD950 IS will retail for $450, and the SD870 IS will retail for $400.
Among the new cameras today, Canon is even unveiling a new line of compact ultra-zoom digital cameras. The first (and so far only) camera in the line is the Canon Powershot SX100 IS. The SX100 IS features a compact size, 10x optical zoom, full set of shooting modes, 8 megapixel resolution, and 2.5 inch LCD. Look for the Powershot SX100 IS in October 2007 for $300.
It's that time of year again, where we see a whole flurry of digital camera announcements. Starting this week is Canon, with the new 21.2 megapixel EOS-1Ds Mark III. The EOS-1Ds Mark III gets a full-frame sensor, five frames per second continuous shooting, lighter magnesium alloy body, and dual DIGIC III processors. The EOS-1Ds Mark III will be available in November at an estimated prices of $8000.
