Canon’s updating their Powershot line of digital cameras, starting with the flagship G model (preferred by gangstas everywhere). The new Canon Powershot G16 builds upon its predecessor by utilizing some of Canon’s most innovative technologies. It features a 28-140mm wide-angle lens with an aperture range perfect for shooting in low-light conditions and it’s equipped with Canon’s HS system, which combines a DIGIC 6 image processor and a 12.1 megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS image sensor, allowing for enhanced low-light image quality. The HS system also means that the G16 can now capture 1080p Full HD video at 60 frames per second. There are a few new shooting modes, like “Star Nightscape”, “Star Trails”, and “Star Time Lapse Movie” that all allow you to better capture images of the night sky. And to top it all off, the G16 is the first Powershot in the G-series to come equipped with built in Wi-Fi. That means you can easily share your photos and videos on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Flickr without having to first download everything to your computer.
The PowerShot G16 is scheduled to drop in October for $549.99.
