"MISSISSAUGA, ON, August 19, 2010 - Furtherelevating the “Power” in PowerShot, Canon Canada, a leader in digital imaging, today announced three new high-performance PowerShot cameras - the PowerShot S95, the SD4500 IS and the SX130 IS Digital cameras. These cameras achieve photographic brilliance with Canon’s HS (High Sensitivity) SYSTEM for improved low-light shooting in the S95 and SD4500 IS cameras, High Definition (HD) video recording, High Dynamic Range (HDR) in the S95 camera and a more intelligent Smart AUTO mode, among a range of others."
Canon has announced a trio of new compacts, led by the Powershot S95. The update to the year old S90 does not add much. The main feature is the ability to shoot videos in 720p at 24 FPS. The other main addition is the ability to do in-camera HDR, not too dissimilar to what Sony compacts have been doing lately. The S95 retains the S90's 10 megapixel resolution, fast f/2.0 to not-so-fast f/4.9 28-105mm equivalent lens with improved image stabilisation. It's not much of an update, so if you have a S90, don't worry about your camera being obsolete. The other two cameras are featured after the break.
