New Canon Powershot SX510 HS (30x, PASM) and SX170 IS (16x) stabilized superzooms
Superzooms are a big advantage of digital cameras over smartphones, so you betcha camera manufacturers will keep rolling them out. Canon revealed two new superzooms today, the SX510 HS (following up on the SX500) and the SX170 IS (Following up on the SX160 IS).
The Canon SX510 HS will have a 30x stabilized optical zoom (starting at 24mm-720mm eq), and is showing megapixel-restraint as it has a 12-megapixel 1/2.3" CMOS sensor. Thus the "HS" after the model name. Other features include DIGIC 4, 3-inch LCD with 461 kilodots, built-in Wi-Fi with more user-friendly features, 1080p video, six image stabilization modes, etc. Thankfully this has the full P/A/S/M, so that's always a plus in a camera. No RAW however. The camera is reasonably priced at $250 and available for Adorama.
The Canon SX170 IS is part of the affordable line of compact-zooms with a 16x optical zoom lens and a matching 16-megapixels in the sensor. Not a CMOS sensor, why it is "IS" and not "HS", and why we only get 720p video. It has a 3-inch LCD, and the usual features. This too is powered by a LiIon battery, no AA here. The starting price of this camera is $170 and it is available for pre-order at Adorama in either black color or red color.
