Canon Smashes out New IXUS, LEGRIA and PowerShot Cameras at CES 2016

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Clearly thrilled by the arrival of CES 2016, Canon has gone camera mad, launching no less than nine new models today. First up, there’s a trio of cute new IXUS point-and-shoot models: the 285 HS, the 180 and the 175. All three will hit the market this month, with the 20.2-megapixel IXUS 285 HS retailing for £169.99, the 20-megapixel IXUS 180 up for £129.99 and the 20-megapixel IXUS 175 listed at a very affordable £99.99.

Next up are four new LEGRIA models: the £224.99 LEGRIA HF R706, the £280.99 LEGRIA HF R76, the £304.99 LEGRIA HF R78 and the £1,049.99 LEGRIA HF G40. The G40 is targeted at enthusiasts, and features a 1/2.84 type HD CMOS Pro sensor with high quality audio, full manual control and Wi-Fi. The cheaper camcorders, meanwhile, combine a Full HD CMOS sensor with a 57x advanced zoom.

(Deep breath) and finally, the £299.99 PowerShot SX540 HS and £219.99 PowerShot SX420 compact bridge cameras. They too land this month, with Canon singling the HS out for its low light capabilities and full creative control. It makes use of a 50x optical zoom and ultra-wide angle lens, while the IS features a 42x zoom lens, a 20-megapixel sensor, as well as Wi-Fi with Dynamic NFC.
