With the announcement of the PowerShot S95, the SD4500 IS, and the SX130 IS digital cameras, Canon is adding three new high-performance PowerShot cameras to its lineup. All three new models can capture HD video. In addition, the S95 and SD4500 IS cameras both incorporate Canon's HS (High Sensitivity) system for capturing better photos in low-light conditions. The S95 is Canon's first camera to offer an in-camera HDR scene mode for shooting scenes with very dark tones and bright highlights. When used in combination with a tripod, this mode will take three sequential images with various exposures and then combine them into a single image. The PowerShot S95 also features Canon's Hybrid IS technology... Read more...

Sadly, the world will have to live with one less competitor for LCD, OLED and CRT. As if CRT is still around. Canon, the same company responsible for selling millions of EOS digital cameras, once had a plan to truly rival the other television technology producers in the world. But for one reason or another, SED never really took off. There were prototypes shown off and promises made, but no launch schedule was ever followed. Now, years after SEDs initial introduction, Canon is finally hoping to put the technology behind them and forget all about what could've been. This week, the company officially killed plans to further develop a SED television, which comes as little surprise to those following... Read more...
Canon is expanding its series of PowerShot Digital ELPH cameras with the new PowerShot SD4000 IS Digital ELPH. The PowerShot SD4000 IS is a powerhouse point-and-shoot camera that has high definition (HD) movie-shooting capabilities, a DIGIC 4 image processor, and a 10-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor. The camera is also Canon's first in the Digital ELPH series to offers Canon's HS SYSTEM, a high-sensitivity system that helps you take good quality pictures in low-light settings. In addition to this HS SYSTEM, the PowerShot SD4000 IS features a f/2.0 lens and image stabilization. Another really cool feature of this camera is its fast burst rate: The PowerShot SD4000 IS boasts of the fastest... Read more...
Fully a third of the top dogs on Barron's 30 Most Respected CEOs list released in this week's print edition hail from the tech world.Given how virtually all anyone talks about these days (other than healthcare, but don't expect a discussion of that here) is social media, gadgets and the interwebz, it should be no shock. Nonetheless, a few tech names fell off the list this year: Chase Carey of DirecTV left the company to be the No. 2 man at NewsCorp.; Satoru Iwata of Nintendo due to the Wii's declining fortunes; and Rick Tsai of TSMC, as he's no longer with the semiconductor manufacturer.So we have, then, the 10 most respected CEOs from the tech world (phrases in italics are Barron's summation...

SDXC is the next generation of the long-standing Secure Digital memory card format, which has become quite popular and pervasive over the past few years. SDXC was initially announced at CES 2009, and it has taken over a year for the first cards (from Panasonic) to ship to consumers. Now, SanDisk is marching in as the second memory company to ship an SDXC card to the public, and the price tag is somewhat less shocking here compared to the Panasonic variety.The 64GB SanDisk Ultra SDXC promises up to 15MB/sec read speed and a Class 4 speed rating, but it's capable of capturing and storing "massive" 1080p video files with ease. SDXC cards are based on the new SD 3.0 specification, which means that... Read more...
PMA, which is America's largest camera show, is scheduled to start this month in California, and it's safe to say that a handful of new Canons will be there. Today, the camera outfit introduced its newest consumer-level DSLR, the Digital Rebel T2i. The DSLR has features that have been previously unavailable at these price points, including an 18MP CMOS sensor, Full HD video recording and selectable frame rates of up to 30fps. The ISO ranges from 100 to 6400 (with a boost level to 12800) and there's also a 63-zone Dual Layer Metering System, and Canon's DIGIC 4 Imaging Processor. Canon is still maintaining their lead over Nikon in the video department with this one's ability to shoot at 1920x1080... Read more...
Canon introduced four new PowerShot A-Series cameras that target the entry-level market. For the first time, two of these new cameras now feature a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. The A-Series lineup includes the PowerShot A3100 IS, A3000 IS, A495 and A490 digital cameras. With the new cameras, Canon has improved upon the A-Series line by adding two creative scene modes (Poster Effect and Super Vivid), as well as a wider ISO range up to 3200. Canon has also made uploading content to YouTube easier via CameraWindow. All of the new cameras released this year will support the SDXC memory card standard with a maximum storage capacity of 2TB.

Canon announced the next evolution in the EOS 1D series of cameras. The new EOS-1D Mark IV DSLR targets professional photographers with its redesigned 45-point autofocus system, 10 frames per second burst speed, 16-megapixel resolution, HD video capabilities, and weather-resistant camera body.

The EOS-1D Mark IV also features the widest ISO range Canon has produced to date with ISO speed settings from 100 up to 12,800... Read more...
In the last year, a handful of camera manufacturers have added HD video recording capabilities to their DSLRs. Nikon initially beat Canon in this race by introducing the $999, 12.3 megapixel D90. Canon wasn’t too far behind, though, with its $2,699, 21.1 megapixel EOS 5D Mark II that is capable of capturing 1080p (better than the D90’s 720p capabilities). At close to $3,000 however, the EOS 5D Mark II wasn’t a lot of competition for the D90 in the consumer space. Time and technology always march on and now you’ll find that Canon’s latest offering, the EOS Rebel T1i, is in a much better position to compete against the D90 and against the brand new 12.3 megapixel Nikon D5000. The 15.1 megapixel... Read more...

Canon has developed an optical image-stabilization technology for upcoming DSLR lenses that will compensate for both angle camera shake and shift camera shake. The new Hybrid Image Stabilizer (IS) technology will be commercially available in interchangeable SLR camera lenses planned for release before the end of this year. Changes in the camera’s angle while the shutter is open can significantly alter captured images. Shift-based shaking generally occurs when a camera moves parallel to the imagining scene and is most pronounced in macro photography and other close-range shooting. Hybrid IS uses several methods and corrective procedures to help compensate for camera shake. An angular velocity... Read more...
