Canon adds four New Digitals to Consumer Camera Line-up

Along with the EOS 20D, Canon today released four other consumer targeted digital cameras. The G6 features an almost identical 4x zoom lens as the G5, still offering the flip-out and twist LCD, but increased to 2.0-inches. The body is slightly more narrow and will sell for about $700 USD.

The Canon PowerShot S70 is almost identical to the S60 if it weren’t for the huge 7.1 megapixel CCD. It still uses the 28-100mm lens with 3.6x optical zoom and can capture in RAQ or JPEG mode with 15 frame continuous capture. This one should sell for about $600 USD.

The Canon PowerShot A80 can record in VGA movie mode, has 21 shooting modes with FlexiZone AF/AE, and is PictBrdige compliant, so you can print images directly to a compatible printer. This will go for around $400 USD.

Finally, the Canon PowerShot A400 is aimed to those trendy fashionable photographers; it comes in Silver, Sky Blue, Spring Green and Sunset Gold. The lens is a 45-100mm with 2.2x optical zoom. It features 9-point AiAF technology, Intelligent Orientation Sensor and DIGIC processor. Eight scene modes can be used to capture images and video onto SD. The price on this one is about $180 USD.
