First up, the EOS 50D DSLR offers a 15.1 megapixel resolution, can shoot 6.3 images per second, and has an expanded ISO sensitivity (down to 12,800!) for catching those low-light shots. The camera also features a Creative Auto Mode than lets users have most of the creative flexibility of a manual mode without all the tedium. The EOS 50D also offers a 3-inch LCD display, and integrated cleaning system, and supports two sRAW1 and sRAW2 recording formats. The EOS 50D should be available in October for $1,399; with a Canon EF 28–135mm ƒ3.5-5.6 IS USM zoom lens, it’ll be $1,599.
Next up, the Canon A series gets two new members, the PowerShot A1000 IS and PowerShot A2000 IS. The A1000 packs a 10 megapixel resolution, 4× optical zoom, optical image stabilization, a 2.5-inch LCD, long with face-detection, motion detection, and red-eye correction technologies. The A2000 IS adds to that with a 6× optical zoom and 3-inch LCD display. Both run off AA batteries for ease of use out in the boonies. The A1000 IS should carry a sticker price of $199.99, with the A2000 IS going for $249.99; both should be available in September.
The new PowerShot SX110 IS brings in a little of the look of a DSLR camera, and packs a 10× optical zoom in addition to a 9 megapixel resolution, 3-inch display, optical image stabilization, and face/motion detection technology. The SX110 Is should be available any day now for a suggested price of $299.99.
Finally, Canon is hoping to appeal to youthful, fashion-conscious photographers and tweens with the new PowerShot E1, a $199.99 camera offering a 10 megapixel resolution, 4× optical zoom, optical image stabilization, face detection, motion detection, and red-eye correction wrapped in a rounded, curvy form factor in white, pastel blue, or pink. The E1 offers 17 shooting mode to “capture every OMG moment,” and offers an Easy Mode that tucks away some of the camera’s features for a more intuitive interface. Expect to see them in stores by mid-September.
