Canon Middle East today announced the addition of a collection of new offerings to its compact digital camera range, with three high-zoom IXUS cameras and a new PowerShot model.

Designed to make it easier for users to share images or video clips, the IXUS 255 HS and IXUS 135 are the latest additions to Canon's expanding range of Wi-Fi enabled cameras. Smartphone and tablet connectivity allows uploading to social networks, while GPS via mobile functionality means users can tag photos with location data.

From entry-level through to advanced models, Canon's compact range is designed for high-quality image and video capture for inexperienced photographers. The 16-megapixel sensors of the IXUS 135, IXUS 132 and PowerShot A2500 combine with Canon's DIGIC 4 image processor to produce poster-sized images with minimal noise and natural colours. The IXUS 255 HS features Canon's advanced HS System, with a 12.1MP CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 processor, which allow enhanced low-light performance and a reduced need for the flash.

The ultra wide-angle 24mm, 10x optical zoom of the IXUS 255 HS is designed for close-quarters detailed capture and both the IXUS 135 and IXUS 132 pack a 28mm, 8x optical zoom into a slim chassis that can readily slip into a pocket.

Advanced optical Image Stabilizer technology with Intelligent IS selects from seven different modes to combat camera shake and help ensure video is smooth and stills are crisp. Each new model also features ZoomPlus technology, a high-end digital zoom that, according to Canon, gives up to double the reach of the lens while maintaining image detail.
