Canon adds to its pocket-cam lineup with the ELPH 520 HS and the ELPH 110 HS

ELPH 520 HSWhile the G1 X has definitely stolen some thunder, Canon also announced two new ELPH models. The ELPH 520 HS and the ELPS 110 HS will both use the same DIGIC 5 processor as the G1 X, so they should both have high-speed and low light capability in common with the new high-end, fixed lens device.

Both cameras also have improved Smart AUTO technology. A new Face ID feature allows these cameras to recognize up to 12 people and you can actually create profiles for them, including their name and birthday. This face recognition technology works by taking pictures of your subjects at various angles so it can then detect them and fill in some metadata. There’s also an age priority system so that younger subjects get more focus.

While these cameras have a few things in common, the ELPH 520 HS (at top) is the higher-end device. It has a 10.1-megapixel CMOS sensor with a 12x optical zoom, as well as an advertised ISO range of up 3200. The camera also includes Full HD 1080p video record and a 3-inch LCD. And while it will pale in comparison to the G1 X’s burst mode (it has continuous capture at 6.8 fps), it comes in a much smaller and affordable package. It will be available in March for $300.

ELPH 110 HSThe ELPH 110 HS is Canon’s new entry-level device, so expect things to be a bit more basic here. The camera has a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor and 5x optical zoom. It’s same ISO range and similar burst mode (5.8 fps) mean you’ll be able to capture comparable quality but your options are somewhat more limited. It will be available in February for $250.
