Canon focuses on low-end with PowerShot snappers
Canon snapped into focus today with the launch of six 16Mp A-series PowerShots to slot into its lower-end range of compact cameras.
First up is the PowerShot A810  and A1300 , classic models that still run on AA batteries. The A1300 rocks up with an optical viewfinder too, an unusual rarity in this day and age. Both feature 28mm wide-angle lenses with 5x optical zooms and will hit shelves for £89 and £109 respectively.
Next up are the slimmer PowerShot A2300  and A2400 IS , which come with the same features mentioned above, but also includes 1080p video capture. The A2300 costs £119, while the A2400 IS, which throws in image stabilisation, costs £129.
Last but not least, on the higher-end of the scale, there's the PowerShot A3400 IS  with a 3.0in LCD touchscreen, and the A4000 IS , with an 8x zoom lens. These are being pitched at £149 and £169 respectively.
The latest A-series Canon PowerShots will all be available from March. ®
