Canon PowerShot SX600 HS and PowerShot ELPH 340 HS Compact Cameras Announced

Canon has announced the addition of two new compact cameras to its PowerShot line-up. Canon PowerShot SX600 HS and PowerShot ELPH 340 HS digital compact cameras officially announced at CES 2014.

The PowerShot SX600 HS camera features a long-zoom range in a compact point-and-shoot camera body.  Equivalent to 25-450mm, the SX600 HS camera’s powerful 18x optical zoom provides users with the high-quality optics the pocket-sized Canon PowerShot SX camera series is known for. The SX600 HS camera combines a 16-Megapixel CMOS sensor and Canon’s DIGIG 4+ Image Processor to create the Canon HS SYSTEM allowing for excellent low-light performance.

The PowerShot ELPH 340 HS digital camera, successor to the ELPH 330 HS, features a 12x optical zoom lens which is equivalent to 25mm-300mm. Great for low-light scenes, the 16-Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4+ Image Processor work together to create the Canon HS SYSTEM helping to ensure images are captured in detail in dimly lit situations.

The Powershot SX600 is expected to ship in March 14, 2014 at $250, the ELPH 340 in March 2014 at $200. Both compact cameras are equipped with WiFi and NFC.
