Three cheers for Canon! They just got three Gold Awards from the Digital Imaging Websites Association or DIWA.
DIWA presented the Gold Awards to three high quality Canon models: semi-professional EOS 30D, the high-zoom PowerShot S3 IS and the stylish and compact Digital IXUS 800 IS. That means they are at the top of their classes, as far as DIWA is concerned.
It cited the EOS 30D for a number of advanced improvements such as the implementation of Canonâ€™s revolutionary â€œPicture Stylesâ€ image processing parameters, spot metering and other useful features.
The Canon PowerShot S3 IS got the gold for its many fine improvements, among which are its higher image resolution and improved light sensitivity, a larger LCD screen that now features a histogram, more scene programs and the addition of the 16:9 wide screen format ratio.
The Digital IXUS 800 IS topped its line-up for its small size and advanced technology. DIWA cited the Ixus 800 IS for its fine image quality and its useful Image Stabilizer.
