S5 IS and IXUS 950 IS coming soon


Canon
has announced two new cameras just in time for keen summer shoppers.

The SD850 IS or IXUS 950 IS depending on where you live, replaces the IXUS 800 IS. The all metal IXUS has an 8 megapixel 1/2,5" CCD, a 4X lens with image stabilization, a 2,5" high resolution LCD and is powered by the DIGIC III image processor. ISO sensitivity is 80-1600 ASA, video mode VGA @ 30 fps, and Canon has added a time lapse feature to the movie mode, which might be fun. It also supports the SDHC format, but ships with a miserable 32MB SD card. It's expected to retail at around 410 euros in the EU in a couple of weeks.

The other product is more interesting. The S5 IS is a bit late, but never mind, it here now and boasts a DIGIC III powered 8 megapixel CCD and a 12X (f/2.7 – f/3.5, 36-432mm) zoom lens with optical image stabilisation. It has a bigger high resolution twist screen than its predecessor and a flash hot-shue. DIGIC III provides it with some new features, but unfortunatley it still lacks RAW support, and that will be a dissapointment for most enthusiasts. It also supports SDHC cards, which would have been great for RAW. It will cost around 515 euros when it hits stores in early june.
