Canon Japan launches new Ixy 32S with touch shutter (Ixy = Ixus = Elph)

Staying in Japan, we have another rather unusual update! A new Japan-only Canon Elph/Ixus/Ixy model! Japanese website DC Watch Impress (computer-translated) says the new Ixy 32S model follows up on the earlier Ixy 31S which came out in March 2011. Based on the computer-translation, it looks like the raison d^etre of this camera is a new touch shutter feature.

By adjusting for calendaring differences in the computer-translation (April 8 = August 4), this one looks like it is coming out in August 2011 in Japan for 30,000 yen in four body colors. Since they are doing four body colors, it may not be an isolated experiment?

For more on the camera, check the Canon Japan product page (computer translated).

This increases the number of new cameras in 2011 to 139, making it the fourth new camera model to quietly trickle out this week.
