Canon has unveiled a new digital camera in its IXUS line called the IXUS 1000 HS. At the same time, Canon is celebrating a decade of cameras in the IXUS family. The new camera is the first in the family to shoot 1080p video at 24fps. Canon offers the 1000 HS in brown, pink, and silver colors.
Canon has announced a new version of the EOS 7D DSLR camera that adds in a strange feature for users that some will find useful. The camera is at its core a basic EOS 7D with a few added features that prevent people from messing around with your settings.
The PowerShot G12 from Canon has been rumored for a little while now, and specifications had been part of that from the get-go. An optical viewfinder was one of those attributes, but according to a photograph of the rumored device, apparently a few things have changed since its last rumor. Delivered to Canon Rumors, which you can tell the main focus of that site, this is what the new Canon PowerShot G12 reportedly looks like now.
Canon's head of Image Communication Products, Masaya Maeda, has revealed that Nikon isn't the only company looking at a new high-end compact camera. Speaking as Canon increased their sales forecasts, Maeda confirmed that the company is looking at a new compact camera that could be a mini-DSLR; "It's not a question of whether or not you have a mirror," he told reporters, "there is a consumer need for good-quality cameras to be made smaller."
If you like your Canon DSLR but are intrigued by the ability to take 3D pictures a new lens from Loreo called the Stereo Lens-in-a-cap promises to let you keep your cam and add 3D capability. Granted, the lens may well be the ugliest accessories that you well ever attach to your DSLR.
Canon has been showing off its vision of the future of the photography, and when they name a concept the Wonder Camera you have to realise they're aiming high. According to Canon's crystal-ball gazers, one day in the not too distant future we'll have junked our regular DSLRs and replaced them with a single camera that, thanks to high-end optics, can shoot both extreme zoom and extreme macro images; gizmag shot a video demo of the camera, which will also apparently have a massively high resolution sensor and be shooting video all the time rather than a series of stills.

It's now been a day since the festivities of your Fourth of July adventures should have ended, but considering today was a "bank holiday," we wouldn't be too surprised to hear that you're still pretty preoccupied with other activities. But, if you're reading this, then you must know what's really important. Right? Right. So, with that out of the way, welcome to tonight's edition of The Daily Slash. In the Best of R3 Media, we've got a Charm from Motorola, a Gravity Phone, and some good news for one lucky customer who Intercepted a device. And then in the Dredge 'Net, we've got quick chargers for electric cars on the horizon, fingerprint sensors going into photocopiers, and Sony's cut down on their eReader prices.
Options never hurt. That's why we're happy to hear that the Sony NEX line of mirrorless cameras is going to get a few options for themselves here shortly. Thanks to Rayqual, a manufacturer out of Japan, the pair of cameras is primed and ready to get Leica, Nikon, and Canon lenses attached to their faces. Something as simple as a lens adapter is the catalyst, making it possible for us to take even better shots than we could before.
