The Everyday Sling might just be the perfect pack for not carrying too much gear, combining comfort with Peak Design's signature modern style.
Canon's latest premium consumer cameras take on the smartphone by joining with it rather than continuing to fight, building in an easier Wi-Fi connection setup process as well as social media compatibility as their most outstanding new features. Though Wi-Fi is not new to the S series, Canon says the PowerShot S120 is easier to connect to cell phones and computers. Wi-Fi is new to the G16, though, which could be a welcome addition as smartphone users come around to wanting a little more from their pictures. Neither camera supports NFC (near-field communication), however, which would allow easy touch-to-connect functionality. Both iOS and Android are supported by Canon's CameraWindow app.
Canon's latest flagship enthusiast digital camera is mostly unchanged both outside and in, with the exception of its DIGIC 6 processor and Wi-Fi. Its fast F1.8 - 2.8 lens ranges from 28-140mm equivalents, allowing the retention of fast shutter speeds in low light, and its DIGIC 6 processor joins with the 12.1MP CMOS sensor, a combination Canon says will allow for better image quality in low light. Canon also says autofocus and shutter lag should be up to 50% faster with the G16.
Design-wise, the Canon G16 has a few new accents, with a more subtle curve to the grip and a harder edge around the top deck; otherwise, the look and feel is essentially the same. The G16 retains the front control dial, which is welcome for those shooting in Manual or semi-auto modes, as well as the increasingly rare optical viewfinder. Note that the lens ring on the G16 does not turn like the ring on the S120, but comes off to make room for accessory lenses.
The customizable shortcut button (marked with an S) moves from the left of the optical viewfinder to just under the movie record button on the right thumbgrip. A few buttons also change position on the back control cluster, with the metering mode button disappearing altogether. An EV compensation thumbdial juts out from the top deck of the camera just right of the optical viewfinder. The rear dial surrounding the control cluster complements the front dial, the pair allowing SLR-like control of aperture and shutter speed.
Other upgrades include a faster frame rate, which starts at 12.2 fps for the first six frames before dropping to 9.3 fps for up to 522 shots (when using a UHS-1 memory card, according to Canon). Full HD video is now available up to 1080 60p (up from 30p), with stereo audio mics and HDMI built in as before. Star Nightscape and Star Trails modes now allow capture of a field of stars in a landscape night scene, or star trails, using a longer exposure.
The Canon G16 is expected to ship in October 2013 for $550.
The main change to the PowerShot S120 is the slight increase to the maximum aperture, which now ranges from F1.8-5.7 instead of F2.0-5.9. This change addresses the fact that most other cameras in this category start at F1.8. Faster autofocus is listed as another feature worth noting, Canon claiming up to 50% improvement in shutter lag and AF speed.
The S120 still has the ring around the lens for a more mechanical feel when making adjustments. Rather than using an electronic motor as past S-series cameras did, the pop-up flash is now deployed via a sliding switch on the left side of the camera. A small Wi-Fi symbol sits below that, denoting its built-in Wi-Fi support.
Controls on the rear of the S120 are unchanged, and the LCD remains a capacitive touchscreen. The Canon S120 is also slightly larger than its predecessor, measuring 100 x 59 x 29mm rather than 99 x 59 x 27mm. Its frame rate has also improved to 12.1 fps for the first six frames and 9.4 fps for the remaining 635 shots with a UHS-1 SDHC/SDXC card. The Canon S120 now supports 1080 60p Full HD as well, with stereo mics and HDMI out.
The PowerShot S120 will ship in October 2013 for $450.
New Advanced Point-and-Shoot Lineup Includes the PowerShot G16, S120 and SX510 HS with Built-In Wi-Fi® and the New PowerShot SX170 IS Offers a Long Zoom in a Compact Camera Body
MELVILLE, N.Y., August 22, 2013 - Adding to its trademark line of esteemed digital cameras, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the release of four new feature-packed PowerShot digital cameras: the PowerShot G16, PowerShot S120, PowerShot SX510 HS and PowerShot SX170 IS. Designed to help photo enthusiasts create high-quality images and videos, these cameras feature advanced DIGIC imaging technology to deliver superb image quality in portable, compact digital camera bodies. In addition, all four models have the ability to achieve faster autofocusing speeds than was possible with previous PowerShot models. The PowerShot G16 and S120 also feature the new Star mode to help users capture the brilliance of a starry night sky, while the new Background Defocus mode allows users to soften the background of their images for a portraiture look.
For the connected photographer, the PowerShot G16, S120 and SX510 HS digital cameras come with built-in Wi-Fi® technology that allows for outstanding quality images and video files to be wirelessly transferred from the camera to social networking sites through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY#, to a PC, or users can upload images to virtually anywhere on their compatible iOS® or Android™ device* with the download of the free Canon CameraWindow app**. The Wi-Fi® setup process has been improved by Canon, making it easier than ever for users to initially setup these cameras. Software no longer needs to be installed onto a user’s computer, so all initial setup can be accomplished from the user’s smart device or computer, allowing for easy photo sharing on-the-go. Images can also be printed wirelessly using Wireless PictBridgei on select printers, including the Canon PIXMA MG7120 or PIXMA MG5520 Wireless Photo All-In-One printers, so special moments can be preserved and cherished for years to come.
“At Canon we are continually inspired to introduce the latest technological advancements to the PowerShot line of digital cameras,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A. “Although smartphone camera popularity is continually increasing, the PowerShot line of cameras offers features such as advanced image sensors, high-quality optics, low-light capabilities and extremely fast autofocusing speeds that, when combined, are unrivaled by smartphone technology.”
PowerShot G16 Digital Camera
The PowerShot G16 digital camera builds upon the success of the PowerShot G15 by utilizing some of Canon’s most innovative technologies. The first PowerShot in the G-series to come equipped with built-in Wi-Fi® technology, the G16 has the ability to share images and video to social networking sites such as Facebook®, Twitter®, YouTube®, and Flickr® or via email through the use of CANON iMAGE GATEWAY. Users can also upload images from almost anywhere via their compatible iOS® or Android™ device with the download of the free Canon CameraWindow app.
The PowerShot G16 features a 28-140mm wide-angle lens with an aperture range of f/1.8 – f/2.8, which helps while shooting in low-light conditions or for users who want to create a dramatic shallow depth-of-field with soft backgrounds. The G16 is equipped with Canon’s HS System, which combines a DIGIC 6 image processor and a 12.1-megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS image sensor, allowing for enhanced low-light image quality.
With improved AF times and reduced shooting lag over previous G-series models, the advancements to Canon’s AF system help ensure users never miss a shot. Continuous shooting speeds of up to 9.3 frames-per-second are possible with the PowerShot G16, allowing users to capture images in full resolution as they happen***. The G16 also captures 1080p/60p Full HD video, and includes a built-in stereo microphone and an HDMI output so users have the ability to view videos on their HDTV.
The PowerShot G16 also features new shooting modes to capture breathtaking images day or night. The new Star mode gives users the ability to capture the brilliance and wonder of the night sky through the use of three scene modes. “Star Nightscape” lets users shoot the radiance of stars in a landscape image, while the “Star Trails” mode captures trails of stars to turn them into a luminous still image. “Star Time Lapse Movie” captures continuous still images of the stars and then combines each to create a stunning video replicating the motion of the stars in the night sky.
In addition, the camera’s creative handheld HDR Scene mode automatically combines multiple shots of a scene to help create an image with a greater dynamic range without the necessity for a tripod. HDR Scene mode includes Natural, Art Bold, Art Embossed, Art Standard and Art Vivid options.
For photographers who want the convenience and ease-of-use of a compact camera with the feel of a DSLR, the PowerShot G16 features dials and controls similar to those on Canon’s EOS Digital SLR cameras. It is also compatible with Canon Speedlite flashes and select accessories.
The PowerShot G16 is scheduled to be available in October 2013 for an estimated retail price of $549.99.
PowerShot S120 Digital Camera
Succeeding the PowerShot S110, the pocket-sized PowerShot S120 digital camera continues the tradition of built-in Wi-Fi® technology that allows for images and video to be shared to social networking sites or via email through the CANON iMAGE GATEWAY. Users can also download the free Canon CameraWindow app to their compatible iOS® or Android™ device and upload images from virtually anywhere.
The PowerShot S120 features a sharp 24-120mm extra-wide angle lens with an aperture range of f/1.8-f/5.7. It is equipped with Canon’s HS System, which combines a DIGIC 6 image processor and a 12.1-megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS image sensor allowing for enhanced low-light image quality. The advancements to Canon’s AF system allow users to achieve significantly faster autofocusing speeds. The S120 allows for continuous capture of up to 12.1 frames per secondii at 12.1-megapixels. The camera also records 1080p/60p Full HD video and includes a built-in stereo microphone and convenient playback via HDMI output.
Multiple creative shot modes such as the new Star mode, Background Defocus mode, and handheld HDR Scene mode give users the ability to create images they will be proud to share. Smart AUTO technology selects 58 different pre-defined scenes without the need to switch modes, making it possible to take beautiful images in a variety of situations.
