The SX30IS sports a cool 35x Wide angle Zoom.
Besides the new Canon G12, Canon also unveiled today the Canon SX30IS camera. The Canon PowerShot SX30 IS Digital camera is the world’s first point-and-shoot model to feature a 35X-Wide Angle Optical Zoom lens with Optical Image Stabilization, making those long distance shots that much easier to capture and then share with friends and family.
The new PowerShot SX30 IS has 720p HD video capabilities and when used in combination with the new 35X-Wide Angle Optical Zoom lens you get a essentially a decent camcorder.
The Canon PowerShot SX30 IS has a 14.1-Megapixel sensor, DIGIC 4 image processor and a large, 2.7-inch wide vari-angle LCD for easy viewing of images along with added flexibility when trying to compose overhead or low to the ground images. In addition, the PowerShot SX30 IS for the first time will use a Lithium ion rechargeable battery rather than the standard AA batteries found on previous models, making powering up the camera much easier.
The estimated selling price of the PowerShot SX30 IS is $429.99 and will be available in late September. The new SX30IS is already available on Amazon for pre-order.
