New Canon PowerShot Cameras Help Capture High-Quality Images With Simplicity
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., January 7, 2013 – Canon U.S.A.,
Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the
PowerShot ELPH 130 IS, A2600, and the A1400 digital cameras to capture
emotions and memories to share in stunning quality. To give consumers a
simple, yet enhanced image sharing experience, Canon's built-in wireless1
functionality has evolved with new options that help make posting on
social networking sites easy. Also for users who are constantly on the
move, each of the new camera models are outfitted with ECO Mode, a new
feature that provides approximately 30 percent longer battery life when
enabled, allowing them to shoot more photos for a longer amount of time.
"Our new PowerShot models have advanced features that
give photographers an enhanced high-quality imaging experience allowing
them to fulfill their day-to-day photography needs, express their vision
and tell their story with ease, at a great value," said Yuichi
Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging
Technologies & Communication Group, Canon U.S.A."
PowerShot ELPH 130 IS Digital Camera
The wireless functionality built into the PowerShot ELPH 130 IS
digital camera is easy and intuitive and provides users with more
connectivity options. With the download of the free Canon CameraWindow
app2 from an Android™ or iOS® app store, users can connect to both iOS or Android™ smartphones and tablets3
to wirelessly transfer photos and videos from their camera to their
device. This camera also has the ability to connect directly to social
networking sites using Canon's iMAGE GATEWAY4, making photos
easily accessible and ready to share. In addition, the PowerShot ELPH
130 IS digital camera has the ability to connect to computers and select
PowerShot cameras with wireless functionality, making it possible for
images to be available in various locations. And for even more
connectivity options, photos can be printed using PictBridge5 on select Canon printers, including the new PIXMA MG6320 or PIXMA MX922 Wireless Photo All-In-One printers.
To make connecting easy, a new wireless history menu lists the last
three connections used for uploading and sharing images. For users who
want to share their images with friends and family, the advanced
wireless functionality with social networking sites such as Facebook,
Twitter and YouTube lets users comment directly from the camera. In
addition, users can share images and directly comment to Facebook
groups, so the effort of first sending the images to a smartphone, and
then posting to Facebook is no longer necessary.

battery life, an 8x-Optical Zoom with 28mm wide-angle lens, and
16-megapixel sensor with a DIGIC 4 Processor, the PowerShot ELPH 130 IS
