With an Impressive 42x and 30x Optical Zoom, respectively, Canon’s new PowerShot SX520 HS and PowerShot SX400 IS Digital Cameras Provide High-Quality Imaging Tools to Meet Varying User Needs
MELVILLE, N.Y., July 29, 2014 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced two new compact, super-zoom cameras: the PowerShot SX520 HS and the PowerShot SX400 IS digital cameras. Designed to give users the versatility and telephoto reach they need to capture subjects from far distances, these new cameras are packed with impressive features. The new PowerShot SX520 HS digital camera includes a high-powered 42x Optical Zoom lens (equivalent to 24-1008mm) and the Canon HS SYSTEM for clear sharp images and Full HD Video. With a 30x Optical Zoom (equivalent to 24-720mm), the PowerShot SX400 IS digital camera allows photographers to capture the moments that mean the most to them quickly and easily, even at long range.
“Our goal is to provide people who are passionate about photography with the imaging tools they need to capture the moments that inspire them,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “The PowerShot SX520 HS and PowerShot SX400 IS digital cameras offer users features that help produce high quality-images and video with ease allowing them to capture their most creative shots.”

We’re told that Canon is working to implement depth of field control in upcoming PowerShot and Rebel DSLRs. The idea sounds like what Lytro is doing, or more recently what Google introduced for the Android camera.
There’s no mention of which camera(s) this would be introduced in, but it seems like a logical next step feature.
What was the teaser from the other day on the Canon Hong Kong Facebook page for? They announced the PowerShot G1 X II, which was already announced every place else a long while ago. Yet again, a regional announcement is of little interest.

The well done April Fools hoax has officially been busted. Here is the Tag Heuer phone used for the mockup. :) I have added a reminder to my calendar for next years April Fools day.
Tag Heuer Smartphone
I just realized what day tomorrow was, so please keep that in mind. :) The person who sent it claims it isn’t but that’s part of the fun I guess. I will say that I can’t find the phone anywhere on the web that they would have doctored, if you do find it, please send it on.
Photo Rumors has also received the images and apparently they come from a Greek magazine. We have no confirmation from anyone else that the product is real.
I received this little product today . I have no idea if it’s real or just a great PhotoShop hoax. What do you think? Would you buy a Canon branded smartphone if the photography capabilities trumped all other smartphones on the market?
It kind of looks like the Caterpillar branded smart phone.

We’re told that Canon will announce the PowerShot G17 some time in May. That is an extremely fast refresh from the PowerShot G16, which was announced last August. The PowerShot G16 was a very minor refresh from the G15.
- 24-200mm f/1.4-2.0 lens
- New 1″ Sensor
- all magnesium body with comfortable grip
- DIGIC 6
The lens looks pretty impressive if this turns out to be true.
