The new Rebel DSLR isn’t the only new ride in Canon’s garage this morning. There are four new PowerShots to consider, each sporting an improved Smart Auto mode. Here are the details broken down by model.
Canon PowerShot SX210 IS
** At $349, the SX210 is the top dog of today’s PowerShot announcements, bringing with it a 14.1-megapixel sensor and a 14x (28-384mm equivalent) optical zoom lens with built-in Optical Image Stablization. Other features include a 3-inch LCD and an enhanced Control Dial that offers Hints and Tips. Canon’s new Smart Shutter scene mode monitors the subjects face for a wink or a smile and uses that as a cue to take the photo. Smart FE mode helps adjust the output on the built-in flash to prevent close subjects from getting washed out. It comes in three colors, including black, gold and even purple.
