The PowerShot SD100 is a Digital ELPH model that offers a 3.2 megapixel resolution in a compact form factor--15 percent smaller than the PowerShot S230, but offering all of the same features. It includes a 2x optical zoom lens, 3.2x digital zoom, Secure Digital storage, nine-point autofocus and the ability to capture up to three minutes of video at 640 x 480. The camera comes bundled with a USB cable, an A/V cable, 16 MB SD memory card and software for Macintosh and Windows.
The two new photo printers include the CP-200 and CP-300, which are both dye-sublimation models that are 40 percent smaller and 13 percent lighter than other dye-sub printers in Canon's line. Both support Pictbridge technology and are compatible with DPOF for batch printing. They offer border-free printing at certain sizes and support paper sizes up to 4" x 6". The printers are USB-based and can print directly from any current PowerShot camera. In addition, the CP-300 can also be operated with battery power and includes a rechargeable battery pack.
The PowerShot SD100 will sell for $499; the CP-200 will sell for $279; and the CP-300 will sell for $379. All of the new models are expected to ship this summer. For more information, visit http://usa.canon.com.
