Canon Announces Four New PowerShot ModelsJust in time for CES 2013, Canon has announced four new PowerShot cameras this morning. While three of these models will be quite familiar, adding to established camera lines, the forth model is something entirely new.
Starting with the familiar, Canon has updated their affordable A-series line with two new entries; the PowerShot A2600 and PowerShot A1400. Both models share similar specifications, offering 16-megapixels of resolution, 720p HD video capture, 5x optical zoom lenses, DIGIC 4 processors, and Smart Auto exposure control. The A2600 sports a common rectangular shape with a 3.0-inch LCD, while the A1400 boasts a more ergonomic design with a nice hand grip and optical viewfinder.
Next, they've added a new Digital ELPH model; the PowerShot ELPH 130 IS. Following the traditions of this line, the ELPH 130 IS is an ultra-compact digicam that offers some appealing features to help you capture pleasing snapshots. Some of the spotlight features include 16-megapixels of resolution, an 8x optical zoom lens, and built-in Wi-Fi.
Now for the New model; the PowerShot N. Yes, N stands for "New", and this is the first model in this newly developed line of PowerShot cameras. Canon's meaning behind the label of this camera is that it's an all new design that changes the way you both hold and operate the camera. The N is quite unique to say the least, with a similar appearance to the camera in Instagram's logo. This model uses no buttons to operate the camera (other than the power button), instead you use the 2.8-inch, tilting , touch screen LCD and unique control rings mounted around the lens. These rings operate the zoom, as well as act as the shutter release. Some of the more recognizable features include a 12-megapixel HD CMOS image sensor, an 8x optical zoom lens, enhanced Wi-Fi functionality, full 1080p HD video capture, and a new Hybrid Auto mode to name a few.
