Canon's 16.7-megapixel camera


Canon’s announced about 400 new products today. Most notable is the EOS-1Ds Mark II, the company’s flagship model. What this means, of course, is that it’s super-specified and very expensive. 16.7 megapixels are on offer, which is an improvement of just under six million pixels on the previous 11.1-megapixel incarnation. The camera can produce images that convert to 50MB TIFF files and it also comes with the option of adding a wireless adapter so you can add wireless b or g capabilities. It’ll set you back around £5999.99.

There are three new Digital IXUS models, the £319 IXUS 40, £249 IXUS 30, and the £460.99 IXUS i5. The first two are out in October and the i5 follows in November. There’s also a new range of compact photo printers under Canon’s new Selphy sub-brand, a data projector (again under a new sub-brand) called the XEED SX50 and three new CanoScan scanners. And that just about wraps it up.
