Canon Launches Seven New Premium Products
Canon Philippines launched their newest milestones with their seven premium imaging products in a media launch at EDSA Shangri-la Manila.
The launching of the products was holiday-inspired as we all know that the yuletide season is nearly coming. Themed as “Winter Wonderland”, the event was snowed by different creatively designed booths featuring the main attractions- the 7 Canon products.
First on the list is a bunch of compact camera shooters unveiled with smart high-performance functions. Lighting condition is one of the major difficulties a photographer faces especially when the area is low light. Worry no more because the Ixus 1000HS, PowerShot S95 and PowerShot SX130 IS solve the problem plus other technical advantages over other shooters.
The world’s slimmest, fully-flat compact digital camera with a 10x optical zoom lens in the name of Ixus 1000HS has its Best Image Selection mode which automatically selects the best shot among five continuously taken shots. Tripod is not necessary to capture sharp night scenes. Also, capturing critical action shots has been made easier with up to 8.8 frames per second.
The PowerShot S95 is slimmer thus bringing a lightweight device which prevents camera shake that causes blurring. Plus Tracking Auto Focus feature helps to track and focus on moving subjects with ease.
The other PowerShot, SX130 IS, has a 28mm wide-angle lens which supports up to 12x optical zoom giving you a wide scenes.
New Canon G-Series camera, the PowerShot G12 and the PowerShot SX30 IS, will be handed down next. These two support high-definition movie recording with stereo sound compatibility. The Canon-proprietary DIGIC 4 imaging processor, which is the common feature among the new released products, enables new high-sensitivity sensor which produces photos with minimal noise and sharp details.
While G12 includes high dynamic range shooting mode that can take three different exposure levels of the same scene to create a single image, the SX30 supports new Zoom Framing Assist function (a combination of high speed zoom with high speed AF).
The event also featured the newest DSLR known as EOS 60D with overflowing pro features. Notable is its wide Vari-Angle 3-inch LCD monitor that can be twisted and turned in almost any direction, providing unparalleled flexibility. The ISO level is expandable up to 12800 ranging from 100-6400. “Toy camera Effect,” “Soft focus,” and “Miniature Effect,” are added for effect. The EOS 60D also captures video at full HD video (1920 x 1080), HD Ready (1280 x 720), and standard TV (640 x 480).
Also introduced in the event is the Canon Selphy CP800 which “Shoot-Print-Share”. CP800, the revamped CP780, offers Photo Collage Layout and Skin Smooth Effect. PC is not a requirement to edit your pictures immediately. ID Photo Layout adds business reason for you to buy the product. Combining dye-sublimation technology with Canon’s imaging expertise, Selphy printers can achieve professional, lab-quality photos.
