Stay connected while capturing amazing images with four new PowerShot cameras from Canon
Today Canon announced four new PowerShot cameras. The ELPH 530 HS, ELPH 320 HS, SX 260 HS, and D20 are the new additions to the PowerShot family. By using ELPH 530 HS and ELPH 320 HS Wi-Fi enabled cameras, you don’t have to sacrifice the image quality for the ability to instantly share images and videos. With the PowerShot SX260 HS pocket sized camera with 20x optical zoom (25mm to 500mm) you can catch very easy every breathtaking moment. And if you are an adventurous photographer, who is looking to take spectacular photos, the D20 PowerShot model is ideally designed for you.
The built-in Wi-Fi functionality in the two ELPH models allows photographers to upload, share or back-up their images. They can connect directly to a wireless network from their camera to upload images and videos to the Canon iMAGE GATEWAY, an online service that allows registered users store images to online albums, and then post them to social networks like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
The Canon CameraWindow application is expected to be available on the Apple App Store for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, in March. With this App, users can easy transfer and save images and videos from their camera to compatible iOS devices. A similar app is expected to be available for Android in May.
