Drive Control Corporation (DCC) has introduced a number of new Canon compact digital cameras with improved new features and enhancements. The Canon Power SX120, Digital IXUS 200 IS, PowerShot S90, and PowerShot G11 are available now from DCC to resellers countrywide.

“We are excited about offering the absolute latest in Canon digital camera innovation to our resellers. As usual the cameras incorporate high-spec features, which one would expect to find in high-end products”, commented Jan Vorster, Canon product specialist at DCC.

The PowerShot SX120 IS builds on the success of its popular predecessor, the PowerShot SX110 IS, incorporating its ergonomic curved lines and a handsome, lightweight, black finish. Features include ISO Auto and Motion Detection Technology, a 10x optical zoom, Canon’s DIGIC 4 processor for natural colour reproduction, i-Contrast for retaining shadow detail, Scene Detection Technology.

The 12.1 Megapixel Digital IXUS 200 IS features a 24mm ultra-wide angle lens with 5x optical zoom, offering a wider perspective than conventional wide-angle lenses, for capturing stunning landscapes and large groups of people shoots. The camera incorporates Canon’s first ever touch-screen system that allows users to flip through pictures and select settings with a single finger-press and Face Detection Technology.

The new PowerShot S90 from the Canon PowerShot S-series displays Canon’s Dual Anti-Noise System with an f/2.0 wide-angle lens, a 3.0 inch PureColor II LCD display, 10.0 Megapixel and DIGIC 4 image processor. The camera captures high-resolution images in poor lighting conditions maximizing the light available and reducing image noise in the same time.

The PowerShot G11 digital compact camera, the successor to PowerShot G10, incorporates a number of new features such as Dual Anti-Noise System, 2.8 inch PureColor II VA LCD and enhancements to the i-Contrast technology. The lens offers a 5x wide angle (28mm) zoom with optical Image Stabilizer (IS), meaning that handheld shots can be taken at much slower shutter speeds than conventional non-IS models, thus allowing perfect shooting in darker conditions or at a lower ISO.

The G11 makes use of a new Low Light mode, which can be used to achieve low noise levels at reduced resolution in a higher ISO range, especially for indoor and low-light photography. Users can capture 2.5 Megapixel images at up to ISO 12800 and 2.4 frames per second and also fine-tune variations in natural and artificial-light and colour tones thanks to a built-in Neutral Density (ND) filter.

  • Between me and my husband we’ve had more electronic cameras over the months than I can count, including many different Samsungs, Sonys, Canons and many more models. But, the last few weeks I’ve settled down to one line of photo cameras. Why? Cuz I was delighted to notice how well-designed and thrilling the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Canon EOS Rebel T2 actually is. With it I have been able to take the most awesome photos. That’s all I wanted to say, hope you have a great day and make sure to shoot some stunning photos!
