Canon has introduced two new ultracompact SD-series Digital ELPH cameras and two more compact A-series point-and-shoot cameras in its PowerShot line.
The $349 SD750 and the $299 SD1000 update last yearâ€™s SD600 and SD630. They both offer 7.1-megapixel resolution and an f/2.8-4.9, 35mm-105mm (35mm equivalent) 3x zoom lens. The new ELPHs use Canonâ€™s new DIGIC III image processor to enhance performance and image quality in both photo and video modes.
The main difference between the two is their optical viewfinders: the SD750 has none but sports a 3-inch 230K-pixel LCD monitor, while the SD1000 packs the same 230,000 pixels in a smaller 2.5â€ screen supplemented with an optical viewfinder.
The $230 A560 and the $280 A570IS offer 7.1-megapixel resolution; an f/2.6-5.5, 35mm-140mm (35mm equivalent) 4x zoom lens; an optical viewfinder, and a 115,000-pixel, 2.5-inch LCD. Both cameras also use Canon’s new DIGIC III image processor to enhance performance and image quality in both photo and video modes.
