Canon has updated its G-series of digital cameras with the new PowerShot G11, although the new model features a 10 MP sensor instead of a 14.7MP sensor that was in the G10, which is said to have better performance in low light.
The Canon PowerShot G11 features a 28mm lens with 5 x optical zoom (28-140mm) with image stabilization, there is also a 2.8 inch vari-angle PureColor System LCD.
Here are the specifications.
- A 10.0-Megapixel High Sensitivity System to capture images with a powerful 5x Optical Zoom lens with Optical Image Stabilization. Additionally, a 28mm (equivalent to 28-140 mm) wide-angle lens helps to get large groups into one shot at events such as a family reunion.
- A 2.8-inch vari-angle PureColor System LCD, new to the G-series, allowing for easier on-camera previewing and reviewing of images from nearly every angle, while still incorporating the optical viewfinder found on previous models.
- Easy access to heavily used functions with two mode dials for adjusting ISO and exposure compensation, and a full range of shooting and recording modes, including RAW + JPEG for ultimate creative control when editing images.
- A host of optional accessories, including Speedlite flashes, an underwater housing and a tele-converter lens to provide further photographic flexibility.
The Canon PowerShot G11 will go on sale in October for $499.
