New Canon Powershot SX150 IS point and shooter
No sooner have we partied like its World Photography Day than Canon decides to present us with a trio of cameras to prolong the celebrations. First up, the Powershot SX150 IS with a 14.1MP sensor and 720p HD video skills. On the front is a 12x optical zoom lens for great closeups as well as 28mm wide-angle shots, all improved by Canon's new camera-shake thwarting IS system.
If you prefer to tinker, there's full manual control – just in case none of the 32 Smart Auto scene settings are quite right – plus a range of the usual fun filters like Fish-eye, Toy Camera and Miniature effects. The inevitable hilarity that will follow can be reviewed on the 3in LCD screen round the back.
The SX150 IS will set you back £199 when it lands in September, but remember to put some pennies aside for the compatible HF-DC2 external flash unit, also winging its way to us this Autumn.
