Canon announced three new point-and-shoot cameras for its PowerShot ELPH / Ixus line, which range from a simple shooter to a high-end model with wireless connectivity and accompanying Android/iOS apps. The announcement comes ahead of the start of this year’s CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging Show in Japan.
The Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS (Ixus 255 HS in Europe) packs a 12.1MP CMOS sensor and DIGIC5 processor, 10x zoom lens (24mm to 240mm in 35mm equiv.) and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.
With that connectivity you can upload photos and videos directly to Facebook, Canon’s iMAGE GATEWAY or to a remote computer. Or, if you have an Android or iOS device and the CameraWindow app, you can have the ELPH 330 HS upload them to your phone or tablet, which has advantages over uploading them directly from the camera.

On the more technical side, the ELPH 330 HS can shoot photos at up to 6,400 ISO, do 6.2gps burst capture and record 1080p video with stereo microphones. ECO mode can extend battery life by 30%. The Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS / Ixus 255 HS will be available in black, silver and pink, and is set to hit shelves in March at an estimated price of $230.
The Canon PowerShot ELPH 115 IS / Ixus 132 is next in line, featuring an 8x zoom lens (28mm to 224mm in 35mm equiv.) and 16MP sensor with DIGIC 4 processor. It records HD video and also has ECO mode.

The camera can record HD video, has ECO mode and a Help button for quick info on how to use the camera, in case you’re not tech savvy.
