Canon's scrappy new compacts can determine a subjects age before taking their picture
The G1 X is the new king of the Canon compact castle, but it's not their only new camera. Two new Elph cameras bring the line back to its compact, but relatively boxy looks.The $299 Elph 520 HS has a 10.1-megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor as well as a 12x optical zoom lens starting at 28mm (28-336mm equivalent). It shoots 1080p HD video, has a 3-inch LCD screen and high-speed burst mode capable of grabbing 6.8 fps. That's aided by the inclusion of the Digic 5 processor.
