Canon’s cutting edge (wallet draining) camera range


Hold on to your wallets and purses Canon fans! The camera giant has just unveiled a whole range of new cameras to get your shutter fingers twitching.

First off is the new, compact DSLR the Canon EOS 6D, the smallest and lightest full-frame DSLR to come out of the Canon stable. It has a 20.2-megapixel full-frame sensor, a maximum ISO of 25,600, for optimum low-light performance, built-in GPS and Wi-Fi connectivity. It also offers the option to grab Full HD video.

New to the PowerShot G-series lineup is the Powershot G15, which boasts the brightest lens yet. The new f/1.8-2.8 lens gives photographers an extra-wide aperture throughout its 5x optical zoom range.

And then there is the PowerShot SX50 HS, which is the first compact camera in the world to have a 50x optical zoom.

Both of these cameras offer full manual controls as well as RAW image capture.

And finally there’s the PowerShot S110, which now comes with Wi-Fi connectivity, along with an 3in touchscreen, which lets you use Touch autofocus to make focusing easy.

And to help you once you’ve taken all those shots, Canon has also revealed the beta of its Project 1709, which is a new image management platform. Cloud-based, it is compatible with all browsers, and lets you access, organise and enjoy images from multiple sources in one simple place.
