Canon Updates the PowerShot Line

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 5:13 pm

Canon went all out with the announcements today, introducing nine new cameras in every category from the entry-level A410 to the high-end, pro-level EOS 1D Mark II N.

In the compact A series, Canon will be keeping the PowerShot A510 and A520 and adding three new cameras: the A410, A610, and A620. The 3.2MP Canon PowerShot A410 ($149 list) is the entry level model, with 3.2X optical zoom, 14 shooting modes, and a 1.5-inch LCD. The A410 will record Motion JPEG video, but without audio, and runs on AA batteries.

The PowerShot A610 and A620 make up the high end of Canon’s compact-camera line. The A610 ($299 list) is a 5MP compact with 4X optical zoom, a 2-inch articulating LCD, and 20 shooting modes, including eight special scene modes. The 7.1MP PowerShot A620 ($399) is essentially the same as the A610 but with a higher megapixel count. Both cameras can also shoot Motion JPEG video with audio.

The black-and-boxy PowerShot S80 ($549 list) is a follow-up to the popular S70, with a 28- to 100-mm wide-angle lens (35-mm equivalent), a large 2.5-inch LCD, and 3.6X optical zoom. The 8MP camera includes 21 shooting modes, an optional housing for underwater shooting, and VGA or XGA video-shooting capabilities.
