We are just thrilled with our new Canon PowerShot G16! It’s no secret that DECO is a particularly visual magazine, both in print and online. We take huge pride in only delivering the highest standard of images (and stories and profiles etc, but let’s stick to the topic). We enlist the help of a whole team of highly talented, exciting and fun photographers to help us, but as a team we also all enjoy taking photographs at events, shoots and while travelling.
That’s why we just got ourselves the new Canon! It was hard to choose though, as there are so many new options!
Canon recently introduced an exciting collection of 9 new models in its DSLR, digital compact camera and accessory product ranges, each demonstrating Canon’s unparalleled expertise in imaging and reflecting the company’s strategic commitment in helping consumers take the next step in their imaging journey.
Representing the DSLR range in the new collection is the EOS 1200D which has launched alongside a new EOS Companion app; this entry-level DSLR and smartphone app make it easy for everyone to take their first step into DSLR photography.
Four new models also join the PowerShot range: the PowerShot GI X Mark II offers DSLR-standard performance in a compact body; the PowerShot SX700 HS is Canon’s slimmest-ever 30x optical zoom; the rugged and waterproof PowerShot D30, and the latest addition to the PowerShot S-series, the PowerShot S200. In addition, three new IXUS models are being introduced, letting users shoot great pictures in style: the IXUS 155, IXUS 150 and IXUS 145. Finally, the Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX II, a new flash for professionals and enthusiasts who are passionate about macro photography, completes the new collection.
