Canon announces dual launch of camera and printer
Wi-Fi enabled PowerShot S110 and portable SELPHY CP900 designed for power and portability
Canon Middle East today announced two new connected products - the PowerShot S110 and SELPHY CP900. The PowerShot S110 is the latest model in Canon's high-performance, pocket-sized PowerShot S-series.
The PowerShot S110 is designed for power and portability. It is a Wi-Fi enabled camera that lets users instantly share photographs online or with other wireless devices. A new capacitive touchscreen is designed to make focusing on the subject easier, in both stills and Full HD movies, while GPS via mobile enables users to add a location to their shots using their smartphone's GPS capabilities.
The new SELPHY CP900 portable printer is designed for lab-quality results. It allows the printing of photos wirelessly directly from a range of devices that includes digital cameras, smartphones, tablets and computers. Offering both a compact and stylish design, the SELPHY CP900 allows users to print their favourite shots effortlessly, at home or when visiting friends or relatives.
The PowerShot S110 comes with an enhanced HS System, incorporating a new 12.1 Megapixel high-sensitivity Canon CMOS sensor with a DIGIC 5 processor, to deliver class-leading image quality in all light conditions and at up to ISO 12,800. The HS System allows users to capture low-light scenes at times like dusk, while maintaining the realism of colours, rich detail and minimum blur.
The PowerShot S110's ultra-wide, 5.0x optical zoom Canon lens is designed for delivery of sharp results even in low light through its wide, f/2.0 maximum aperture. The 24mm ultra-wide-angle is perfect for capturing sweeping landscapes or groups of friends while the 5x zoom allows users to approach their subject with ease and provides sufficient lens compression for beautiful portrait photography. When required, the 10x ZoomPlus can extend the zoom range beyond the maximum focal length of the lens, producing sharper image quality with more visible detail than conventional digital zoom.
To counter any blur or movement when taking photographs, Canon's Intelligent IS technology reduces camera shake in both stills and movies, according to Canon. Intelligent IS automatically identifies the scene and can adapt the optical Image Stabilizer to seven different situations for optimal compensation, so footage remains smooth and stills are crisp, even when shooting at full zoom or with slower shutter speeds.
