For customers who want a camera with manual controls and Raw support yet still fits in a pocket, Canon has introduced the PowerShot G11 and PowerShot S90.
The feature-packed G11 comes with a 10-megapixel sensor and 5X optical zoom (equivalent to 28mm to 140mm) with optical image stabilization. The camera features a 2.8-inch vari-angle LCD, which is helpful when shooting at difficult angles, and an optical viewfinder—a relative rarity in the point-and-shoot market. The camera offers manual controls and support for Raw images—an increasingly popular option that gives you more control over how your image is processed.
The G11 will sell for $500 while the S90 will go for $430. Both cameras will be available in October
The $250 PowerShot SX120 IS offers a 10-megapixel sensor, a 10X zoom (36mm to 360mm equivalent) with optical image stabilization, and a 3-inch stationary LCD.
Both cameras will be available in September
Like the SD980, the $300 SD940 IS also includes a 12-megapixel sensor and HD video recording, but comes with a slightly smaller (2.7 inches) non-touchscreen LCD and a 4X zoom (28mm to 112mm equivalent) with optical image stabilization.
Both cameras will be available in September.
