The PowerShot G3, the successor to Canon's high-end G2 camera, captures images at resolution of up to 4 megapixels and has a 4X zoom lens. New features include built-in filter effects, more advanced white-balance settings and more intelligent computation of automatic settings. The camera will be available next month at $899.
Canon also announced the PowerShot S230, a credit card-size camera just one inch thick and 6.3 ounces in weight. The tiny camera captures images at resolutions up to 3.2 megapixels, has a 2X zoom lens and can directly export images to certain printers. The camera is set to go on sale next month at $499.
