Surprisingly Cannon has unveiled two new superzoom cameras for release this September, before the usual Photokina expo release setting.
The new cameras include the PowerShot SX500 IS and the PowerShot SX160 IS digital cameras which have been fitted with a 30x and 16x optical zoom, alongside Cannon’s latest auto focus technology, which according to Cannon is more responsive and of a higher-speed compared to their previews models.
Both camera’s also include long-reaching zoom and Cannon’s intelligent Image Stabilization technology which will analyze the scene being shot and will make images and video steady, even when panning or walking.
Alongside this both cameras are equipped with Cannon’s Smart AUTO mode, which will automatically apply optimum image settings depending on the shooting scenario.
The PowerShot SX500 IS will feature a 24mm wide-angle lens with 20x optical zoom, 16 megapixel sensor and the DIGIC 4 image processor. Alongside that the camera also include’s the IS system we talked about earlier, a 3 inch LCD screen and a Zoom Framing Assist feature.
The PowerShot SX160 IS is a model down and will include similar features to the SX500 IS but a little dulled down, the first feature to have this is the optical zoom which on the 160 is a 16x optical zoom, however the camera will still feature the same 16 megapixel camera and DIGIC 4 image processor alongside all that other tech just not the superzoom.
Both cameras will be made available in September 2012, and will cost around $329.99 and $229.99, respectively.
