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.
