Latest Canon cameras

Posted 21/08/2007 at 3:01 AM
Canon have announced their new range of cameras, due for launch in September this year:

Canon EOS 40D
We reported this some time ago following an accidental release via the Canon HK website, but this time it's real.

  • 10.1 megapixel resolution
  • 3-inch (7.5cm) LCD screen with live view
  • 6.5fps burst rate
  • 9-point AF system
  • Compact flash memory

Expected Realease Date: 1st September 2007
RRP: $1999 (Body only)

Canon have also announced two new lenses, which we expect to form their standard twin-lens kit for this camera. These are the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS and the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS. This will bring the Canon entry-level SLR back in line with the Pentax K10D, K100D Super and Sony Alpha 100 as offering image stabilisation as standard.

Canon PowerShot G9
Canon's new top-of-the-range compact is a worthy dSLR alternative.

  • 12.1 megapixel resolution
  • 6x optical zoom with image stabilisation (35-210mm equivalent)
  • 3-inch (7.5cm), high resolution LCD screen
  • Face detection
  • Hot shoe for Canon Speedlight flash attachment

Expected Realease Date: Mid September 2007
RRP: $849

Canon PowerShot SX100IS
A new range of digital compact camera, the SX sits between the S5 IS and A710IS.

  • 2.5-inch (6.4cm) LCD screen
  • Red eye correction
  • Face detection
  • Support for SD, SDHC, MMC, MMCplus, HC MMCplus
  • AA batteries

Expected Realease Date: October 2007

Canon IXUS 960IS
Replacing the IXUS 950IS, Canon has labelled this 'the ultimate Digital IXUS', which is quite a claim after years of being the world's favourite compact camera.

  • 12.1 megazpixels
  • 3.7x optical zoom with optical image stabilisation (36-133mm equivalent)
  • Titanium case
  • 2.5-inch (6.4cm) high-resolution LCD screen

Canon IXUS 860IS
This is the successor to the very popular IXUS 850IS, and retains the wide-angle, 28-105mm lens that made its predecessor so popular. Resolution is increased to 8 megapixel.

  • 3.8x optical zoom with image stabilisation (28-105mm equivalent)
  • 3-inch (7.5cm) high-resolution LCD screen

Replacing the A640IS, this camera incorporates some well-deserved new features:

  • 12.1 megapixel resolution
  • 6x optical zoom with 'total anti-blur' system (optical image stabilisation, High ISO and Auto ISO shift) (35-210mm equivalent)
  • 2.5-inch (6.4cm) high-resolution Vari-angle LCD screen
  • 4x AA batteries
  • Face detection
