Canon adds three new PowerShot digicams

Canon_PowerShot_N100_Black_.jpgCanon has just released information about three new PowerShot models; the ELPH 340 HS, SX600 HS and N100. All three focus on portability, with compact form factors that allow each model to easily fit into your pocket. The SX600 is a powerful super-zoom, with an impressive 18x optical zoom stuffed into its pocket-sized frame. It's also packed with features you'd expect to see in a 2014 model, like built-in Wi-Fi, NFC technology, and a High Sensitivity CMOS image sensor to name a few. Check out our PowerShot SX600 Preview for more info on this gem.

For those that want an affordable pocket camera that still packs a nice zoom lens, the new PowerShot ELPH 340 HS might be the ticket. This sub-$200 camera offers some pretty nice features considering its price tag; like a 12x optical zoom lens, built-in Wi-Fi, and NFC technology. Canon has also added their Hybrid Auto and new Creative Shot modes to the 340 HS. More details can be found on our PowerShot ELPH 340 HS Preview page.

Lastly, Canon has added another model to their N-series of ultra-compact "New" cameras. The PowerShot N100 is a petite, simplistic camera that offers many features that you'd expect to see in a 2014 PowerShot; like a 12-megapixel HS CMOS image sensor, built-in Wi-Fi, NFC technology, a 3.0-inch tilting LCD, full 1080p HD video capture, etc. However, the N100 also packs a new Dual Capture feature, which includes a secondary rear facing camera; much like you have on your smartphone or tablet. This is a first for any digicam we've ever seen. Check out our N100 Preview for more info on this unique camera.
