The high performing IXUS 255 HS and slim line IXUS 135 are the latest additions to Canon’s expanding range of Wi-Fi enabled cameras. They combine distinctive design with Canon’s acclaimed imaging and lens technologies and feature a new Eco mode, which helps users continue shooting for longer by conserving battery life.

The IXUS 255 HS  will be available in black or silver. It sports a 12.1-megapixel CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 processor plus a 10x zoom, 24mm ultra-wide lens with Intelligent IS. It has a high quality 7.5 cm (3.0-inch) PureColor II G LCD screen with a 460k dot resolution and a Smart Auto mode with 58 pre-set scenes. Other features include a new Hybrid Auto mode that uses Smart Auto with Scene Detection technology for shooting stills with optimal settings, and also captures up to four seconds of movie footage prior to the shutter being released.

The IXUS135 and PowerShot A2500 feature 6.7cm (2.7-inch) screens and 16-megapixel CCD sensors. Both models can record HD (720p) movies   and both include a range of creative effects.  The IXUS135 will be offered in black, silver or blue and both IXUS models are due to go on sale from March 2013. The PowerShot A2500 will come in black or red and be available from late April 2013. Pricing is set at dealer discretion. For further details, visit the Canon website at  .
