Canon EOS-1D X Mark II Among New Cam­eras Launched Re­cently

HWM (Malaysia) - - APERTURE - NEWS -

Canon Mar­ket­ing (Malaysia) re­cently launched a slew of new cam­eras for the lo­cal mar­ket, in­clud­ing the top-of-the-line EOS1D X Mark II. New cam­eras from the Pow­erShot and IXUS lineup were also un­veiled at the launch event.

The EOS-1D X Mark II is equipped with a new full-frame sen­sor that of­fers 20.2MP of res­o­lu­tion. Work­ing in tan­dem with the sen­sor is Canon's new Dual DIGIC 6+ im­age pro­ces­sor, which al­lows you to push the ISO up to 409,600 (ex­panded). More in­ter­est­ingly, this cam­era has a 360,000-pixel RGB and in­frared me­ter­ing sen­sor, along­side the EOS iTR AF sys­tem, which al­lows for in­cred­i­ble track­ing ac­cu­racy and speed.

Also launched was the EOS 80D and 1300D – both are crop sen­sor cam­eras, though the EOS 80D is the flag­ship op­tion, while the EOS 1300D is for the be­gin­ners. The EOS 80D has a 24.2MP sen­sor, while the EOS 1300D has an 18MP sen­sor.

As for the Pow­erShot range, Canon launched the new Pow­erShot G7 X Mark II – a cam­era that sits at the top of the com­pany's pre­mium por­ta­ble seg­ment. It uses the new DIGIC 7 im­age pro­ces­sor and has a 20.1MP, 1-inch sen­sor. In ad­di­tion, the Pow­erShot SX720 HS, SX540 HS and SX420 IS were also in­tro­duced, all cam­eras with pow­er­ful zoom ca­pa­bil­i­ties. The SX540 HS has 50x op­ti­cal zoom, while the SX420 IS comes with 42x op­ti­cal zoom. The SX720 HS, on the other hand, has a 40x zoom range.

For those who pre­fer point-and­shoot op­tions, Canon's IXUS 175, 180 and 285 HS are great op­tions. They have the same 20MP CCD sen­sor, and sup­port Wi-Fi, as well as NFC.

Last but not least, the com­pany also launched the SELPHY CP1200, a por­ta­ble photo printer that can be pow­ered by an ad­di­tional power pack. You can trans­fer your pho­tos to this printer via Wi-Fi, and it can print up to 54 im­ages di­rectly from cam­eras or smart­phones. The use of dye sub­li­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy en­sures your pho­tos re­main un­af­fected by time for up to a cen­tury when stored in an al­bum.
