Canon's "G" line of cameras have always appealed to point-and-shooters looking for more of a pro experience. The new G15 has some great details—is it a $499 camera worth considering?
Last month we tested the best rugged, waterproof cameras and picked a winner. "But what about the new Canon?" everyone screamed. Fear not. The PowerShot D20 went through some cruel testing over the past couple of weeks. Could it live up? Could it live, period?
The new Canon Powershot ELPH 530 HS will be the first Canon camera with built-in Wi-Fi capabilities. That means you'll be able to wirelessly upload photos to the Internet as well as to transfer media directly to mobile devices.
The Canon S100—like its S-series predecessors—is an almost perfect compact camera with some drawbacks stemming from its pocket-friendly size. There's a lot of crazy tech on board. The Canon gods have outdone themselves; but that outdoing might be the camera's undoing.
You've got pockets, Canon's got cameras for 'em. The PowerShot ELPH 500 HS is the touchscreen-sporting successor to the affordable low-light champ SD4000 IS, and the SX230 HS has 14x optical zoom and GPS to keep you all orientated.
The PowerShot S90 is our longstanding favorite point-and-shoot, and one of its few shortcomings was that it couldn't do HD video. The updated S95 shoots 720p video and does it in a slightly smaller body.
Canon just pulled the sheet off three new PowerShots: the S95, a 720p-shooting update of our good old friend the S90; the SX130 IS, a $250 ultra zoom; and the SD4500, a 1080p capable point-and-shoot with 10x optical zoom.
Sure, basic stereoscopic images can be created using software to merge two slightly offset photos, but that only works for stationary subjects. For moving targets, there's Fuji's Finepix Real 3D W1, or this $20 hack using two Canon PowerShot cameras.
The Canon Powershot D10 will never, ever fit into a pocket unless you are MC Hammer, circa 1990. That's because it houses a telescoping lens in a bulging case, making it look like a sub. Still, shots are pretty.
I thought Canon's new G11 pro point-and-shoot—decked out with everything but HD video, depressingly—would make me drool the most, but I was wrong: Canon's pocketable pro point-and-shoot, the S90 is fapfreakintastic.
Canon is popping out cameras faster than the Octomom today and the S90 is one of the most attractive kids. The Powershot S90 gets its small stature from Canon's ELPH line, but its guts from the more advanced PowerShot G-series.
I love Canon's D10 toughcam because it looks like a submarine. I hate it because I can't fit its blimp-sized ass in my pocket or anywhere else in my pants.
Canon's got a bajillion cameras laying around, but this little guy, the Power SD780, is the one that most of the Canon reps said they want to stick in their pants and take home.
Most point-and-shoots have extremely similar feature sets now, whoever they're from—smile, booger and blink detection; image stabilization and other boingos you never use. So Canon's choice to focus on look-and-feel stands out—and pays off.
