Canon has unveiled three new compact PowerShot cameras added to its rather expansive catalog. The models offer a variety of features aimed towards the demanding consumer who needs a compact camera capable of providing the best images possible in many different settings. Features betwixt the three models include high-zoom, high-sensitivity sensors, and full HD recording.

First up is the PowerShot ELPH 330 HS, which features 10x optical zoom and a 12.1-megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor. The device can be paired to both Android and iOS devices for wireless image transfer, and the camera itself can be used to comment on photographs that have been uploaded to social networking websites. Its connectivity features aside, the camera boasts Canon’s HS SYSTEM, which utilizes ISO up to 6400 for the most detailed low-light shots possible. The ELPH 330 HS will be available in March in Black, Pink, and Silver for $229.99.

The PowerShot ELPH 115 IS is more of a budget camera, lacking the wireless capabilities of the aforementioned model. The device boasts a DIGIC 4 processor, as well as a 16-megapixel sensor and 8x optical zoom. There are six stabilization modes to reduce blurs. Video footage can be recorded in high definition, and there’s an Eco Mode for power conservation. The 115 IS will be available in Pink, Black, Blue, and Silver for $169.99 in March.
