Canon launches three new PowerShot cameras

Canon has launched three new compact cameras for their PowerShot line – the PowerShot S110, PowerShot G15, and the PowerShot SX500 IS.

First up is the PowerShot S110, the successor to last year’s S100. The S110 didn’t fall far from the tree and sports a 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, DIGIC 5 image processor, a large f/2.0 aperture and an enhanced HS System. GPS is no longer an option but Canon added WiFi connectivity so you can view your photos directly on your iOS or Android device using the Canon CameraWindow app. From there you can add GPS data on the images, save it on your device or upload it on Facebook. Another notable feature of the S110 is the multitouch capacitive touchscreen so you can now do the “pinch-to-zoom” gesture when viewing photos.

The Powershot S110 also boasts in night or low-light photography. Its new Handheld Night Scene mode takes two shots of the subject – one with flash and one without – then combining the two shots automatically. Take a look at the sample shot below:
