Designed for travellers, the compact PowerShot SX410 IS features a 40x optical zoom lens plus 80x ZoomPlus technology that effectively doubles the zoom range.  Canon’s intelligent image stabiliser technology reduces blurring at high magnifications. The camera’s ergonomic grip ensures greater stability when zooming in on distant subjects.

The 20-megapixel CCD sensor and DIGIC 4+ processor combine to support fast, TTL autofocusing and an ISO range from 100 to 1600. Smart Auto shooting and Creative Filters make it easy for snapshooters to capture attractive pictures and movies, while 32 pre-set and pre-configured shooting modes are available for tricky subjects and to achieve special effects. The PowerShot SX410 IS will be offered in red and black and is due to go on sale in March.

Equipped with a 6.17 x 4.55 mm back-illuminated CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4+ processor with iSAPS technology, the Canon IXUS 275 HS features a compact slim design and pocketable metal body. The 12x optical zoom lens is teamed with Canon’s HS System to enable users to capture subjects as diverse as landscapes and portraits ““ and almost anything between.

The Smart Auto shooting mode includes 32 in-built scene presets plus popular creative filter effects. Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC plus the Mobile Device Connect Button make it easy to link the camera with smart devices for sharing images via popular social network site. Shots can also be viewed and stored on Canon’s Connect Station or uploaded to Canon’s cloud storage service, irista.
