CES 2016: Canon announces new PowerShot models

by | Jan 5, 2016 | News, Products

Today, Canon unveiled five new PowerShot camera models, including three from the ultra-compact ELPH line and two from the higher-end SX series. While the features vary between the models, all are built around new, 20MP sensors which offer unprecedented levels of detail in this category. The high-end models in both the ELPH and SX lines apparently use a slightly upgraded sensor, as they carry the High Sensitivity (HS) designation. This should help create cleaner images in low light situations. The breakdown of the new models and specifications is below.
