Canon launch Sure Shot 115u II Date and Sure Shot 90u II Date - Two new fully automatic compact cameras feature high quality Canon lenses with 3x and 2.4x zooms, respectively.
Benefiting from Canons 60-year heritage in precision optics and featuring aspherical lens technology, the Sure Shot 115u II Date and Sure Shot 90u II Date are capable of focusing at just 45cm from the subject. The Sure Shot 90u II Date has a focal length of 38-90mm, and a zoom of 2.4x, while the Sure Shot 115u II Date has a 3x zoom and a focal length of 38-115mm. Both of the cameras feature passive 3 point AiAF that ensures sharp focused images even when the subject is off centre.
Designed to cover a wide range of shooting opportunities, each camera features five picture modes for the user to select from: Action (for continuous in-focus shooting of moving subjects), Night Portrait (flash for subject and slow shutter speed for background), Portrait, Close-up, and fast response RT (Real-Time). The Canon zoom flash links to the zoom lens, so that the light from the flash can be focused more intensely and maintain good illumination of the subject.
With real image viewfinders, the Sure Shot 115u II Date and Sure Shot 90u II Date are remarkably light for cameras of their quality and zoom capabilities. At 195g and 185g, the Sure Shot 115u II Date and Sure Shot 90u II Date are multi-purpose compact cameras that can be taken anywhere.
Pricing and availability
The Sure Shot 115u II Date and Sure Shot 90u II Date will be available from June 2005 for 79.99 / 119.99 RRP inc. VAT and 53.99 / 79.99 respectively.
