Tamron announces 24-70mm lens with image stabilization

Tamron, budget alternative to the more expensive official lenses from the likes of Canon and Nikon, has a new baby they're showing off today.

Tamron's low-noise motor is also packed in under their "Ultrasonic Silent Drive" label. There's no word on pricing or availability for the "SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD", but expect it to come in mounts for all the popular Digital SLRs out there.

Canon PowerShot Digital ELPH 520HS crams in 12x zoom

Canon's newest ELPH is tiny. Seriously tiny. While not as quite slim as some of its former models, the PowerShot Digital ELPH 520 HS has an overall volume that's impressively tiny for its specs.

The whole camera is just a little thicker than and deck of cards, and much shorter and more narrow.
