IXUS 210 and PowerShot SX210 IS

IXUS 210 IS
In my humble opinion the best-looking of the four new cameras is the new IXUS 210, an advanced touch-screen model featuring a 14.1-megapixel CCD sensor and a 24mm 5x zoom lens. The monitor is a 3.5-inch wide-screen format PureColor II LCD, with touch AF, custom icon layout and tap control. Having such a large screen makes the touch controls accessible, and the large on-screen icons have clearly been designed for larger western hands.

Other features include 720p HD movie recording, DIGIC 4 processing, optical image stabilisation and motion detection technology. It has 22 different scene modes with automatic scene selection, and face detection that can track 35 faces at once.

The IXUS 210 comes in a range of four colours, and will be available from early March priced at a fairly hefty £349 inc. VAT.


PowerShot SX210 IS
The three new IXUS models are joined by a new PowerShot model, the SX210 IS. Obviously not competing with arch-rival Panasonic at all, the new long-zoom compact - purely coincidentally of course – features a wide-angle 14x zoom lens (equivalent to 28-392mm) and a 14.1-megapixel 1/2.3-inch CCD sensor, neatly trumping the new TZ10 on two vital stats.

The SX210 also has optional manual exposure control and shoots 720p HD video with stereo audio and Dynamic Image Stabilisation. It has a 3.0-inch PureColor II G LCD monitor, a powerful pop-up flash which can also be popped down when not needed, and has an HDMI output socket for connection to a digital TV.
