Powershot with HD video - WOW!!!

Canon on Tuesday updated its point-and-shoot PowerShot line by announcing ten new cameras. A few of the new models will be able to record high-definition video at 720p and 1080p, both a first for Canon in the United States. Another area Canon will dive into is the waterproof camera market. Though the company makes waterproof housing accessories for its cameras, Canon will be introducing its first waterproof camera (up to 13 feet) in early May.

Canon originally announced its first HD video–capable camera, the PowerShot SX1 IS, in September of 2008, but only sold it in Europe. Beginning in April, consumers can purchase the SX1 in the U.S., and it lists for $599.99. This 10-megapixel superzoom camera will offer a 20x optical zoom, use a wide-angle 28mm lens, and be capable of recording 1080p video at 30 frames per second (fps). The camera will also use a CMOS sensor as opposed to a CCD sensor. (CMOS sensors are usually found in high-end SLR cameras that produce much better images through lower amounts of noise and larger dynamic range.) more....
