Canon has announced three new compact cameras, the slim IXUS 185 and IXUS 190 and a mini-bridge model called the PowerShot SX430 IS.

The new IXUS models are the slimmest in Canon’s range while the PowerShot SX430 IS has a 45x zoom

All three have a 20Mp sensor and are capable of capturing  HD 720p movies.

The IXUS 185’s 8x and the IXUS 190’s 10x optical zoom lenses collapse back into their bodies to maintain their slim lines when not in use. Both also feature ZoomPlus to digitally double the zoom range. Meanwhile thePowerShot SX430 IS’s 45x optical zoom can be doubled to 90x with ZoomPlus.

The IXUS’s new Easy Auto feature automatically selects the best camera settings for you, and locks buttons to prevent them being pressed by mistake – perfect for use by young children. In addition, the Auto Zoom can intelligently select the best framing depending upon the number of people in the shot.

Canon’s Intelligent IS is also on hand to reduce image blur form camera shake. It can operate with one of eight modes to enable it to the shooting conditions and scene, whether the camera is on a tripod, panning or being used on the move. There’s also Dynamic IS for use when shooting movies.

Set the date

A new Date Button is available to adds the date and time to images if you want a visual reminder of when a shot was taken.

Images can be shared directly to social sites with the built in wireless connectivity. With the IXUS 190 and PowerShot SX430 IS all you need to so is tap you NFC enabled phone and camera together to make wireless connection using Dynamic NFC.
