Capture Life's Unexpected Moments In Superb Image Quality With Canon U.S.A.'s New, Easy To Use And Re-Designed PowerShot A-series Cameras
 
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., February 7, 2011 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced six PowerShot A-series digital cameras with improved operability that produce outstanding images and feature a high-quality, stylish re-design in a variety of fashionable colors. Canon's PowerShot A-series models have been instrumental for entry-level users in learning the joys of photography and these new models continue this tradition with features such as 16-megapixel sensor, 720p HD video capture and a 28mm wide-angle lens to capture images of large groups at a family function or of a child on the playground.
 
PowerShot A-series models are known not only for producing high-image quality but also being easy to use as well. For the first time in a PowerShot A-series model, the A4000 IS, A3400 IS and A2400 IS models will feature Intelligent IS so the camera automatically selects the most effective image stabilization mode ensuring users always capture the best results. In addition, all of the models announced today will have the Smart AUTO feature with 32 shooting modes that selects the appropriate camera setting based on the users shooting environment. Additionally, for the first time in a PowerShot camera, each model will have a Help button to provide an explanation of various shooting modes to help the user along the way.
 
"The new additions to Canon's new PowerShot A-series lineup will provide entry-level users with many options to unlock their creativity and capture high-quality images at a budget-friendly price," said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A.

The Canon PowerShot A4000 IS and PowerShot A3400 IS cameras will each have a Genuine Canon Lens with Optical Image Stabilization allowing users to capture up-close details and wide landscapes. For the PowerShot A4000 IS camera, there will be an impressive 8x-Optical Zoom lens, the longest to date for a PowerShot A-series model, and the PowerShot A3400 IS camera will have a 5x-Optical Zoom.
