New Elph cameras coming from Canon

Canon will debut three new 10-megapixel digital Elph cameras in the next few months.

The SD890 IS, SD790 IS and SD770 IS all include optical image stabilization, face detection and Canon’s DIGIC III engine. The Elphs will also incorporate Canon’s new motion detection technology. When the cameras detect motion, they will automatically boost the ISO, or lower the ISO when no motion is detected.

Also new for the Elph line is AF Point Zoom, which is used in face detection mode to digitally enlarge the face of a subject in the frame. The cameras also feature automatic red-eye correction, in-camera editing and will bundle a 32MB SD card.

The PowerShot SD890 IS has a 5x optical zoom lens, a 2.5-inch LCD display, ISO 3,200, 14 scene modes and an optical viewfinder. It's due in April for $399.

The SD790, for $349, has a 3-inch LCD, a 3x optical zoom lens, ISO 3,200 and 14 scene modes. It should be avalable this month.

Canon will ship the SD770 IS in April for $299. It features a 3x optical zoom, 2.5-inch LCD, 300 shots-per-charge battery life, 13 scene modes and ISO 1,600. (info from Twice)
