Canon Launches PowerShot SX410 IS and ELPH 350 HS; Teases the G3 X



It’s not been even a month that Canon showed of three new cameras with wireless connectivity in its PowerShot range, and we already have news about the launch of two more cameras – PowerShot SX410 IS and PowerShot ELPH 350 HS. Additionally, the Japanese camera giant also teased the existence of the PowerShot G3 X, a premium point-and-shoot with a 1-inch sensor.

The $280 (roughly Rs. 17,000) PowerShot SX410 IS is expected to hit the markets in March. This super-zoom bridge camera is a direct upgrade to the PowerShot SX400 and boasts of a 40x optical zoom lens. It has a 20.2-megapixel CCD sensor. Unlike the PowerShot cameras revealed at CES 2015 in January, the PowerShot SX410 IS doesn’t have Wi-Fi or NFC pairing mode. Also, the video recording resolution tops off at 720p, which is surprisingly low.

Featuring a more compact design, the PowerShot ELPH 350 HS has a 20.2-megapixel CMOS sensor. It is priced at $210 (roughly Rs. 12,900) and is expected to go on sale in April. It has a 12x optical zoom lens with an intelligent image stabilisation system. Additionally, it also has Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity built in, and it can shoot 1080p videos.

Details about the PowerShot G3 X are scant but Canon is definitely working on it, and is expected to divulge more details about it at the CP+ event next week. It has a 1-inch CMOS sensor like we mentioned earlier, apart from a 24-600mm focal range and a 25x optical zoom lens.
