There is light at the end of the Canon tunnel, with the PowerShot SX100 IS and the A-Series range of cameras completing the new models unveiled today.

First up, the 8 megapixel PowerShot SX100 IS with 10x optical zoom, an Optical Image Stabiliser (OIS) and the DIGIC III image processor to boost speed and performance, Canon’s Genuine Face Detection Technology is also here, along with a 2.5-inch LCD screen, two VGA 30 fps recording modes and 19 still shooting modes. Price to be confirmed.

Also announced are two new PowerShot A-Series digital cameras, the 12.1 megapixel PowerShot A650 IS digital camera and the 8 megapixel PowerShot A720 IS. Both are described as solid point-and-shoot models and a 2.5-inch Vari-Angle LCD. The A720 has a similar feature set, as well as throwing in VGA video recording.
