Canon unveils four new PowerShot point-and-shoot cameras

Meet Canon's newest point-and-shooters.

Canon is known for its excellent cameras and lenses. Although the Japanese manufacturer has flooded the consumer market lately with DSLRs, at the end of the day, users would still want to capture those candied shots with a nice point-and-shooter.

That is why Canon is now announcing four new point-and-shoot cameras under its PowerShot series. Enter the PowerShot G16, the PowerShot S120, the PowerShot SX510 HS, and the PowerShot SX170 IS. These four cameras, Canon says, feature advanced DIGIC imaging technology that presumably proffers good image qualities. Let's go through each camera to learn more about its specific feature.

First is the PowerShot G16. Taking upon the specs of the older PowerShot G15, this camera touts a 12.1-megapixel CMOS image sensor combined with a DIGIC 6 image processor and a 28-140mm wide-angle lens with an aperture range of f/1.8 - f/2.8.

On the other hand, the PowerShot S120 is made to fit in your pocket. It also sports a 12.1-megapixel CMOS sensor and a 24-120mm extra-wide angle lens with an aperture range of f/1.8-f/5.7. Like the S110, the S120 supports Wi-Fi, and users can download Canon's free CameraWindow app for iOS and Android for uploading photos in a snap.

Up next is the PowerShot SX510 HS. This camera features a 30x optical zoom 24mm wide-angle lens and a 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor as well as Canon's DIGIC 4 image processor that reportedly allows users to capture high-quality images.

Last but not the least is the PowerShot SX170 IS. Unlike the three, the SX170 IS is outfitted with a 16.0-megapixel sensor and a 3-inch LCD screen. Users will also adore its 16x optical zoom with its 28mm wide-angle lens, high-speed AF and intelligent IS system, and Canon's SMART Auto technology.

As per availability, the PowerShot G16 and the PowerShot S120 cameras will be available in October at a retail price of $549.99 and $449.99, respectively. Meanwhile, the PowerShot SX510 HS and the PowerShot SX170 IS will be arriving earlier next month for $249.99 and $179.99.
