It also includes a 2.8-inch vari-angle, high resolution LCD screen that lets users clearly see their shot, and features a 28mm wide angle lens and 5x Optical Zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer. Taken photos are saved as RAW files, giving users complete control over their photos.
Canon Australia’s Assistant Brand Manager for PowerShot, Anna Kalinowska said, “The PowerShot G11 expands the range of shooting for a compact camera like never before. Users can enjoy the high quality and features they’d expect from a DSLR in a compact body. The new high resolution 2.8-inch vari-angle screen will allow users to compose their shot at low or high angles, expanding their creative possibilities further.”
In addition, Canon has also launched the PowerShot S90 – a lightweight camera with a 10-megapixel CCD sensor, bright f/2 Canon lens, and full manual control.
“At a mere 175 grams, the S90 is the slimmest-ever PowerShot camera, and provides users with a high-end camera in a pocket-sized body. The compact, wide and bright f/2 Canon lens allows users to capture motion without blur as well as create shallow depths of field for professional looking shots. You can enjoy analogue-like operability with a new control ring and full manual control, as well as the best of digital technology like the huge 3-inch LCD screen and RAW shooting,” says Kalinowska.
