Maybe, just maybe, when you’re traveling light or doing a street photography projects, you were kinda hesitant in exposing your handy dslr cameras. Right? Of course, that’s when subjects, especially people, tend to shy away when they see us aiming our big cameras at them. Aside from this scenario, bringing big cameras, even though we have our special bags for it, is kinda tedious and heavy in our shoulders, or in our backpacks.
Thanks to Canon, they have produced PowerShot compact cameras, great enough to capture moments and are designed to deliver better image quality and performance. Thus, the production of PowerShot series, and today, Canon has unveiled not just one but three new models – PowerShot SX60 HS, PowerShot G7X, and PowerShot N2.
Let’s take a look at PowerShot SX60 HS first. This compact camera has a super-zoom compact, well-suited for travel and sports photography – perfect for our Adventour projects. PowerShot SX60 HS also possesses the world’s highest zoom capability in its class with a 65x zoom lens. Whoah! What a cool feature. So, this maybe is its powerful feature yet. We are not familiar with this series because as everyone knows, we are using Nikon D3000 and Nikon D3100 in our blogging and travel gigs. We’re also using different lenses for our dslr and it’s not easy to pack our zoom lens, kit lens, and prime lens all at the same time packed in our backpacks. The PowerShot SX60 HS would be a perfect partner for travel assignments because of the compact and comfort of carrying this model.
Estimated retail price of PowerShot SX60 HS is around $550.00.
Aside from PowerShot SX60 HS, Canon also pushes the envelope on image quality, zoom, and fun with PowerShot G7X, which is a new premium compact in the G series, with a wide aperture bright lens and a large sensor for superior image quality, especially in low-light environments. Low-light environments. See? It’s not easy to take good quality photos if you’re using lens that are not low-light capable. Frustrations and unnecessary frames are wasted, even for seasoned photographers when they fail to get a good shot on low-light conditions. Well, this could be a dream come true for us if we can take the PowerShot G7X on a tour or in low-light environment and successfully capture a good image quality on that condition.
Estimated retail price of PowerShot G7X is around $699.00.
Next on the line-up is PowerShot N2 that will perfectly meet the growing demand of ‘selfie’ trend. By far, from what we’ve seen in the market, PowerShot N2 has the minimal look yet trendy when it comes to its intricately designed to be more user-friendly than ever, and now allows users to be more expressive with their photographs. With its compact form and rounded edges, PowerShot N2 make it comfortable to hold in almost any angle, and its new 180-degree tilt touchscreen LCD giving freedom in taking photos from different points of view. Since it has that stylish appeal, PowerShot N2 comes in two colors, white and black, to match the users need or fashion identities.
Estimated retail price of PowerShot N2 is around $299.00.
We couldn’t say more about the latest PowerShot series. All we want now is to have it in our hands, to try and feel the comfort of these compact cameras. Schedule of release of PowerShot SX60 HS and PowerShot G7X will be available in October 2014. PowerShot N2 is scheduled to be available in December 2014.
These latest compact cameras could be the perfect gift especially this coming Holiday Season. All we wanted to have is either PowerShot SX60 HS or PowerShot G7X, or both! Since it’s the ber months already, ‘Dear Santa, we have been good all this year!’
