Canon has added two new superzooms to its PowerShot line-up: the SX20 and SX120.

The 12-megapixel SX20 features a flip-out screen and 20x zoom. It also films 720p high-definition video. The 10-megapixel SX120 includes a 10x zoom, and shoots VGA movies.

The SX20 is the follow-up to the PowerShot SX10 while the SX120 is the sequel to the SX110. The two new cameras join the IXUS 200 and 120, PowerShot G11 and S90 in today's new line-up.
