The SX210 is the standout of Canon’s four new PowerShots point-and-shoots, shooting 14-megapixel stills and 720p video (with stereo sound and optical zoom while shooting), with a crazy long 14x 28mm wide-angle zoom lens for $US350.
The SD3500 is their touch camera, also 14 megapixels and 720p, but it’s got a 5x 24mm wide-angle lens, and it’s strikingly devoid of buttonage, because it’s entirely touch-based unlike their last, kinda awkward touchcam. Like the SX210, Canon’s stressing its compatibility with Eye-Fi wireless SD cards. It’s $US330.
And then you’ve got the SD1400 and SD1300, their tiniest point-and-shoots. The $US250 SD1400, surprise, also 14 megapixels and 720p video, but with a 4x zoom lens, while the cheaper SD1300 shoots 12 megapixels and sadly, no 720p video for $200.
I’m a little sceptical of 14 megapixels crammed into such tiny cameras – I especially wanna compare the higher-end SX210 to the S90, since I know the kind of pictures 50 extra bucks will get you. But we’ll see.
