Posted: August 23, 2009 in Tech

Canon has announced that it has added six new point-and-shoot digital cameras to its PowerShot line. The new cameras include the G11, S90, SX20 IS, SX120 IS, SD980 IS, and SD 940IS.

The G11 and the S90 are both 10-megapixel cameras supporting Canon’s new High Sensitivity System. While the G11 feature a 5X zoom and a fold-out 2.8-inch LCD; the S90 features a fast F/2.0 lens; and a standard 3.8X optical zoom.

The SX20 and the SD980, and SD940 are 12.1-megapixel cameras and record 720p high-definition video. While the SX20 boasts a 20X ultra-zoom for any shooting situation, and a soundless engine for zoom recording; the other two models are essentially for casual photographers.

Canon’s first touch-enabled model SD980 features a 3-inch LCD and a 5X zoom; while the stylish SD940 has a 4x zoom lens.

The SX120 features a 10X zoom lens.
