Canon A550
The Canon announced successors of digital cameras in entry class. Canon A class offers maximum possibilities in compact case.
All cameras in Canon A class have been designed with ease of use firmly in mind.
New Canon A550 is a successor of the last years bestseller Powershot A530/A540. Comparing to previous model, new one is bringing new optical sensor with 7.1 Mpix, new lens with 4x optical zoom, large two inch display, a redesigned controls.
Canon A450, A460Also two new cameras are presented in lowest price range, A450 and A460 replacing the previous A420 and A430, both cameras have 5.0 Mpix optical sensor and large 2.0 inch diagonal display. The A450 is using 3.2x optical zoom lens, while A460 is using 4x zoom lens, which is basically only difference between them.
All three cameras have DIGIC II Canon image processor, witch is no surprising in lowest A4xx class, but honestly I was expecting newly developed DIGIC III image processor ( already presented in Powershot G7 ). Obviously this is no revolution, Canon produced tree more great cameras to substitute three great cameras. There are just enough improvements to stand out from last years model and nothing more. For now all eyes are on the next camera that will come from Canon ( A560 ) it should implement new version of DIGIC processor witch is more able to confront demanding processing image data from small sized sensor packed up with megapixels.
All tree cameras are expected in the stores during February.
