Canon Announces New Powershot A-series Digital Cameras
CES hasn’t even officially begun and already the announcements are rolling out. Canon has announced four new, affordable, feature-packed A-series digicams: the PowerShot A3300 IS (image above), A2200, A1200 and A800. Of the new lineup, Canon says, “When capturing irreplaceable moments, it is important to use a camera that inspires artistic expression in a simplistic format,” and that’s essentially what they’ve done here. The new A-series cameras come equipped with Creative Filters, including Toy Camera and Monochrome mode; the PowerShot A3300 IS, A2200 and A1200 each have Live View Control and 32 predefined shooting situations within the advanced Smart AUTO feature; the A1200 has an actual Optical View Finder!—and all three of these cameras will retail for under $180. The $109.99 A1200 features 720p HD video, a 12.1-Megapixel CCD sensor, 4x Optical Zoom, a wide angle 28-112mm equivalent lens and a 2.7-inch LCD screen. The PowerShot A3300 IS, A2200, A1200 and A800 will be available beginning early February and into March for $179.99, $139.99, $109.99 and $89.99, respectively. Read the full press release below.
