Canon announces adventure-proof D20, WiFi IXUS

Another camera has been announced this week, with Canon joining the likes of Nikon and Olympus for announcing new gear. This time it’s three compacts, one of which can be dropped, while the other two sport wireless connectivity with an iPhone.

Announced this week, the new Canon PowerShot D20 packs in a 12.1 megapixel sensor capable of capturing 1080p Full HD video, GPS tagging for images, and 5x optical zoom equivalent to 28 – 140mm.

Designed for adventures, the new camera is also being listed as water-tight for up to ten metres, shock-proof for drops of up to 1.5 metres, and freeze-proof withstanding temperatures as low as -10ยบ Celsius.

Meanwhile, Canon also took the time to announce two new WiFi models of IXUS heading to Australia soon. The IXUS 510HS will feature a 10 megapixel sensor with 12X optical (equivalent to 28 – 336mm), while the IXUS 240HS will go with a higher 16.1 megapixel sensor and lower 5x optical (equivalent to 24 – 120mm).

Both will feature 3.2 inch screens, face identification technology, 1080p Full HD video capture, and WiFi support able to work with iOS devices using a Canon app.

Canon hasn’t given us any prices for any of these models, but we do know that the IXUS models will arrive in April, while the PowerShot D20 lands in June.
