Canon Launches Flagship Cameras

Canon has rolled out a total of three compact cameras, two in its IXUS range and one in the Power Shot series.

The compact Canon 14.3 megapixel PowerShot G1X adopts powerful EOS technologies and large CMOS sensor to capture amazingly high-quality photos, for those who desire the power of an EOS camera in a smaller package. Whereas the outgoing and socially active users can look forward to the new 16.1 megapixel IXUS 125 HS and 10.1 megapixel IXUS 500 HS, which have the ability to take outstanding photos without the use of clunky accessories, while still being stylishly slim enough to slip into a tight pocket.

The new range of compact cameras features DIGIC 5 image processor. The DIGIC 5's superior image processing capabilities generate high quality images in all types of lighting conditions, with minimal noise and more accurate colors, ensuring the best-looking skin tones under any type of light.

The classic, stately look of the 14.3 megapixel POWERSHOT G1X with a 4x zoom 28mm lens says it all. This sophisticated, no-nonsense camera is designed for photography enthusiasts.

To make the most of all this visual data, the POWERSHOT G1X can save photos in 14-bit RAW format. Common for Digital SLR cameras, the respected RAW format is favored by professionals because it preserves more image data, and grants additional flexibility when it comes to touch-ups.

The 16.1 megapixel IXUS 125 HS's 5x zoom and the IXUS 500 HS's 12x zoom are complimented by the Intelligent IS technology which is intelligent enough to detect factors like zoom position and shooting distance to accurately counter camera shake.

The new Face ID function allows users to register the names and faces of up to 12 people, and tag the photos that they appear in.
