Digital imaging powerhouse Canon has two more compact, super-zoom cameras in the pipeline: the PowerShot SX520 HS and the PowerShot SX400 IS, both of which will be in stores by the last quarter of 2014.
Avid photographers get the best of both worlds: these models are designed to capture subjects from far distances quickly and easily but without the bulkiness of telephoto lenses.
These new cameras are equipped with features such as a high-powered 42x Optical Zoom lens (equivalent to 24-1008mm), Optical Image Stabilization, a highly sensitive 6 megapixel CMOS sensor, DIGIC 4+ image processor and full HD video for the PowerShot SX520 HS; the PowerShot SX400 IS, on the other hand, has a 30x Optical Zoom (equivalent to 24-720mm), 16 megapixel CCD sensor, DIGIC 4+ image processor, Smart Auto, and 720p HD video capabilities.
Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO of Canon USA said in a statement: "Our goal is to provide people who are passionate about photography with the imaging tools they need to capture the moments that inspire them."
"The PowerShot SX520 HS and PowerShot SX400 IS digital cameras offer users features that help produce high quality-images and video with ease allowing them to capture their most creative shots."
