Canon  has announced the newest addition to its top-of-the line PowerShot G-series digital cameras. The PowerShot G10 digital camera offers many features, including Canon’s new DIGIC 4 image processor, 28mm Optical Image Stabilized lens and RAW mode. As the successor model to the PowerShot G9 digital camera, the PowerShot G10 digital camera has Canon’s latest technologies, including a long-anticipated 28 mm wide-angle lens with 5x optical zoom, 14.7 megapixels and 3.0-inch Pure Color LCD II screen.

“With exquisite image quality, the latest image processor and advanced functionality, the Canon PowerShot G10 digital camera brings an elevated level of performance and usability to the PowerShot line,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, senior vice president and general manager,  Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A. “By enhancing key technologies in this camera, including our proprietary DIGIC 4 image processor, Canon has merged the functions typically found in a DSLR with a smaller body form to provide affordable and portable options to photo enthusiasts of all types.”

The controller wheel is equipped with a dedicated exposure compensation dial, which allows quick and intuitive adjustment of exposure compensation and the “My Menu” function for registering five user-selected options from the shooting menu, as well as 26 shooting modes. Additionally, the custom code better allows the user to record two types of shooting parameter settings, thus offering the ability to arrange their most often used settings on their LCD display. A host of accessory options are offered, including the remote switch, macro ring lite and macro twin lite (when used with an additional attachment, available in January 2009).

Another feature made possible by the DIGIC 4 image processor is servo AF, which is a form of continuous focus tracking for moving subjects. By pressing the shutter button half-way, the camera can track subject movement up to the instant of exposure, resulting in  sharper photographs.

Availability and Pricing

The PowerShot G10 digital camera will have an estimated selling price of $499.99 and should be available in October. Kit contents will include a battery, charger, neck strap, USB and A/V interface cables, canon digital solutions software CD, and a 1-year limited warranty.
