Canon has revealed four new camera models, three of which are additions to their IXUS range of digital compact cameras with the last being a new Powershot A-series point-and-shoot.
Canon’s IXUS 135, 132 and PowerShot A2500 all feature a 16 megapixel sensor, along with the company’s DIGIC 4 image processor. The IXUS 255 HS uses Canon’s HS System and features a 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor with a DIGIC 5 image processor. The IXUS 255 HS is designed for use in low-light conditions and has a 24mm 10x optical zoom. The IXUS 135 and 132 both have 28mm 8x optical zoom options while the PowerShot A2500 has a 28mm 5x optical zoom.
The IXUS 255 HS captures full HD video at 1080p and the remaining models can shoot HD video at 720p.
Two of the new shooters, the IXUS 255 HS and the IXUS 135, are WiFi-enabled, able to connect to smartphones and other WiFi devices for quick uploads of images. All four cameras also feature an Eco mode, which Canon says conserves battery life by up to 30%.
